Show new replies to your posts, no new posts, error
« on: May 16, 2020, 07:21:48 pm »
Log into forum.
(Don't have Simon's custom CSS enabled that cuts off the top-right box.)
Ensure that there are no new replies by anyone to your posts.
Be on the forum's front page.
Click "Show new replies to your posts" in top-right corner.

Observed: We go to a new page that prints an SQL query error.

Expected: Something cleaner.

Just tried to reproduce this. Marked all posts as read (just in case) then clicked that link. It displays an empty list as expected, but otherwise no problems.

At any rate, likely an issue with SMF rather than LF customizations, as I don't believe we've touched that functionality. Did you happen to catch a screenshot or a copy/paste of the error by any chance?

Yep, attached.

I used Chromium in inkognito mode.

Strange, I can't reproduce this using either my account or the test account.

Do you recall whether your account on .net was created, or imported from the old .com database? If it's the latter - can someone else for whom this was also the case, try to reproduce this issue? (My current account, and the test account, were both created on this side.)

I created my account on .net and I get an error as well. I use as well Chrome.

I marked all unread posts since last visit as read and that magically fixed the issue for me.

I believe my account was imported, not created.

Sorry, I can't tell for sure. I've had an account since 2006. But my account ID here is 4, and I've certainly had not been the 4th member in 2006.

Forestidia found the bug yesterday, originally.

Had the error again, marking all posts as read in "Show unread posts since last visit." resolved it again. It seems I can't use "Show New replies to your posts." properly for some reason.
