Yep, same retrospective worries here:

For quite a while (started around 09JAN18 08:00 UTC up to now), Login was blocked with ominous message:

Your connection is not private
NET::ERROR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

Sometimes (not always, randomly), when you login from the site, you redirected to this error page:

You actually logined successfully, just didn't redirected to the previous page, but to this error page
If it's random, it'll be hard to diagnose until we have more info. I just tried with Firefox and Chrome. Steps I took:

1. Logout from TPFC
2. Pop into any random database entry page.
3. Click "Login" from top of page.
4. After login, I'm redirected back the same database entry page in (2)

If you guys hit this problem again, try to note the exact sequence of steps you took and post them here.
Consistently get error as described by billion viewtopic.php?p=88869#p88869.
Start at front page and click login
StartHere_2018-01-10_025202.jpg
from there on the error (with successful) login occurs.

Correction, repeatedly fails using FF56, however no problem using latest chrome. :(

Fixed. Thanks for spotting this!

The reason is because some fields for this entry (especially "What's New" is really huge eg. > 1KB). This chokes up the text diff engine and takes a long time to complete, so the script times out.

What I have done is to truncate fields greater than 1KB before feeding them into the text diff engine. I think it's a good compromise compared to upping the script timeout parameter.

Finally. Been waiting for someone to be online to check what the class and styling was.

Here's a screenshot of the tweak to the 'online' background image label for users, which is currently on the right hand side:

And attached is the updated icon_user_online.gif background image and the content.css within a zip which changes the 'background-position' from line 824, seen in the spoiler below.
Spoiler!   

Code: Select all

.online {
    background-image: none;
    background-position: 0 0;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

No prob. Thought to @ you but couldn't figure out how to @ handles which contain spaces :P (At least I think the new software supports @'ing, maybe that's only another one I frequent).

I did a quick google about this. Don't think it's support it even the latest version of phpBB. It is supported, however, in vBulletin.
