Backup function and Rainbow links on off function ( 14:56:47 MonJan 6 2003 )

Board Plan: IE 5.5

I'm having a problem using both funcrtions, first the rainbow links, I want then to go off so I click, the screen comes up and says they're off but they're still on! The second problem, is that for about the past week whenever I make a side back up I get two backups instead of one. :sad:

I had the internal server prob. this morning too, but that's fixed now, however this didn't correct the two problems I'd been having as described above. Thankyou for your time.

Yes your rainbow links are still on. Try unclicking them to turn them off again and then reload the page. Also make sure it isn't sending an email to you for Admin confirmation, if it is you must confirm the action before it will take affect. Try that and see if it works..

Yes, I tried that several times, doesn't work, also my server side backup makes two at a time... I just checked on my board, I can't get in, when I click on a link I get the Internal Server error message again! It is just not my day/week is it? lol

Just an update, I got back into my board, no internal server error sign! YAY! I tried again to shut off the rainbow links and reload...nope! It does say 'done & they're off' everytime I do it though!

Hi DMonkey and welcome to the support forums! :smile:

I just turned off your rainbow links without any trouble - you sometimes need to refresh the page after making a change, in order to see the effect. As this is a toggle button, you were probably turning them on again, when they were actually off!

I also did a server-side backup and only one was created (you can check for yourself). Possibly you clicked the button twice inadvertently? :smile:

If you continue to have problems of this kind, it often pays to clear out your browser cache and temporary files folder and then reboot your computer. :smile:

Re: Backup function and Rainbow links on off function ( 10:10:57 TueJan 7 2003 )

Hi! Thanks for fixing the rainbows! lol It's wierd though, yea, I do refresh after making changes but it wasn't clicking over for me, I tested it after you turned them off, it said they were on so I clicked again and the message said they were on again, not that they were off...and they are off, as near as I can tell. I clear out the cache frequently as I spend alotta time working in an art program, so I don't know. I haven't tried a server back up, yet. I've only had these probs. the past week, since I put up the new theme board, I've had the board a lil over a month. Would you just check that those rainbows are still off or click em off for me when you have a chance? And Thankyou Very Much! :smile:

OK Thanks! Now for my next question! lol I have received 3 pm notifiers from the bb, uh, like from you (administration?) and each one when I click on it to read the message takes me here and says error 404, there were two in my box when I first got the board, and one just now when I came to look at the Tech Board, oh, also one of the people posting on my board received two as well but he didn't say whether is was error 404 or not...just a lil strange, thought I'd mention it.

Thanks again for all your help, you people are GREAT! And I LOVE my board! :smile:

oops, just needed to add, you(?) tested and made a backup and said to look at it, yes, I found it, it's only there once. But when I do it it gives me two backups with exactly the same time, it's been doing that for the past week too, wasn't doing it before the new theme board, I also noticed the bar to delete the old backups, that's a Terrific idea! Thanks! But I am still getting two backups at a time, I've left it there so you can see...

I still think you must somehow be double clicking the backup button - if you look carefully, you'll see that the duplicate timestamps show as a few seconds later than the first ones. Again I did a backup for you and only one appeared. Don't worry about it, just delete the duplicate. :smile:

I've been having a prob. for about the last week with side backups. It's been making two backups at a time, instead of one. Now there's a new button to delete the old backups and I tried it and it didn't work. I have been having problems only since using one of the new theme boards. :sad:

1000 Apologies BbAdminMod! :smile: I missed your last reply, yes, I'll just delete the second backup! Sorry for re-posting the prob. You must be right, but I am only clicking once...honest! lol Hmmm...just thought of something, maybe I should clean my mouse, maybe that's causing it! I'll letcha know! Thanks again for your help! :smile:

Hmm, how odd - I guess you'll just have to delete the second one, or you could leave it there - it's not doing any harm.

The "delete old backups" button only deletes backups that are at least a week old. :smile:

Yes, it is odd, coupla more odd things, when I change my mood it should show up right away and it doesn't change here, till I do it a second time, they should be simultanious shouldn't they? Also, I think I read the trash only hangs around for a coupla days, well I just checked and I'm sure there's stuff still in there from, hmmm... lets say more than a week ago? Can I delete the trash myself somehow?

Quick update! I just checked on my friend's board, my mood hasn't changed there either! So it just changes on my board unless I do it twice, actually I think I had to do it twice to change it on my board today, but I didn't think about it I guess I thought I hadn't hit the submit button or something, but I've done before that and it comes up "no mood specified"...i'm wondering if I should go back to the default and see if I'm still having the same

(sorry, hit submit too soon!) What I meant to say was I wonder if I should go back to the default board and see if I'm having the same problems?
