    KM still have intermittent glitches where I am logged in then suddenly not logged in, submitted replies show up/don’t show up, so not the end of the world, just FYI.

    To KM or anyone – just now when logging in I was asked to complete a math question – some sort of “capcha value”. Me having to do math. Not my strong suit. Need calculator to balance bank book, and even then …. What gives???

    #789862

    Hey!

    The math question is just temporary, we’ve noticed that spammers have been getting into the forum more frequently since the update, so we’ve put that in place until we can find something a bit more user friendly!

    We hope to have it replaced with a better system in a few days, so until then, make sure you’ve got your calculator handy! 😛

    Thanks

    KM

    I still am not seeing the pictures on the main page and only intermittently seeing people’s avatars (using Windows XP at that place). Haven’t tried it from our iMac for a few days. I have tried clearing my cache with no improvement.

    Dear Kittenmaster, two long-time TDK members (WWM and Sox’s Mom) are having the most frustrating problems with the site (see ‘I officially HATE the new TDK site and format’ thread). WWM keeps being told she must log in again whenever she wants to post, even though she is already logged in — which meant she could not post on the condolences thread for Debsterwhiz — and Sox’s Mom keeps getting a ‘forbidden’ screen. I am worried they will be put off visiting if it keeps happening. Please could you take a look? Thanks so much, Jane (Jcat)

    KM, whenever TDK is typed it links to an amazon page, and it disturbs the format, at least on my iPhone 5, iOS 6 safari. I don’t care about the linking really, but the format looks messy and it can get confusing.

    Here is what it looks like on my phone (:
    For some reason TDK didn’t link but the other two links did mess up the format.

    Dear KM, when I tried to pull up an old TDK thread on socializing kittens for a new poster (www.dailykitten.com/chat/topic/12527), I just got the error message 404, page not found. Socializing is not one of the ‘hot topics’, it’s only found through tags. Does this mean I can’t pull up old threads any more to help new posters if they aren’t in the hot topic section? Do the old page links no longer work? Or is it just the occasional one? It would be a bummer, as life’s too short to keep reinventing the wheel…

    #791158

    Hi Jcat, the old forum structure ids (the 12527 at the end of that url) aren’t used anymore (haven’t been for a long while). I had a look at the old structure and I think this is the post that you are after:

    How to Care for An Abused Cat

    If you need to look for something that you know you can find through tags then for the time being you can do this:
    http://dailykitten.com/chat/topic-tag/socializing/

    Just replace “socializing” in that URL with the tag you want to look for.

    I’m trying to either post a picture so it shows in the post, or post a link to a picture and neither seems to be working.

    OK – here I am trying to the use the ‘img’ button to post a picture from Cheezburger: Test of image from Cheezburger

    OK – that didn’t really work – I can’t get the picture to display

    Interesting. I originally used Internet Explorer 7 to create the post. Now I am in Firefox, and while I still don’t see a picture or what looks like a link, if I right-click the box and select View Image, it will take me to Cheezburger post…

    Love your photo Rubia. So far the only problem I’ve had was misspelling my password and then trying to remember what it should be, I knew I could get a new one but I wanted to find the old one and use it. I finally found where I had written it down and now I’m in. This is the first post I’ve tried so I’ll try another thread to see if I can.

    I was wondering about the links to catster. Do we still have them or is there a place to put them. I always enjoyed checking out everyone’s fur babies?

    Is there anything you can do about the “Shopping Links Added by SkimWords” that throws “TDK” and some other words or phrases out of their correct positions in sentences and puts them in pink at the end of a line or a post? Keeping the link is all right, but can the words stay in their proper places?

    I had the same issue, posted about it on the previous page with a pic. It seems it usually only happens on my phone.

    @Kilroy What browser are you using from your phone and what kind of keyboard is it (i.e. touch screen or physical buttons)? Haven’t updated anything on TDK since last week, so can’t think what will have all of a sudden changed your ability to post uppercase. Still trying to find if there are any reports of something similar on Google, but there doesn’t seem to be any reports of anything like it.

    Hi KM – I’m having a terrible time getting links to work on the site. I am trying to post a link to a photo album (i.e. not just one picture).

    I click on the ‘Link’ button above, paste in the url and post, but link doesn’t even appear in the post.

    If I use the image button and paste the url into the prompt it will create a little box, and if you are using Chrome and right click on the box, select ‘Open image in another tab’, it will bring up the album. But that won’t work if you click on the box using IE.

    Here I am posting a link to the album using the link button:
    http://rubia.phanfare.com/mt.ashx?c=http%3a%2f%2frubia.phanfare.com%2f6201454&mc=x1EZXcZQ5h8uAAFomE5agsnd

    OK – you can see (or rather not see) that the link does not even appear.

    And for some reason, the img button is not working in this post…

    #792323

    Not sure why link isn’t working? Just posting the link as is seems to work with out using the link button.

    Added using the link button (for some reason appears empty):

    Link added just by pasting in the link to the post:

    Hi KM, I probably already know the answer but is there a definitive way of siphoning out spammers? Seems to be happening a lot of late. I’m following instructions and directing them to your (and Fred’s) attention, although tonite I slipped up, and prior to this action, directed it to myself, but immediately deleted “comment”, same for “update” that I think showed up in my profile, so I assume no harm done. Just asking. tks.

    Just trying to unsubscribe from emails on this post…

    #792407

    @jcat If you double click on “Your Account” (top right of the site) and then when you are on your profile page click on “Settings” and then from the choices underneath click on “Notifications”, you can select when you receive email notifications for certain actions.

    @katzenjammer I wish there was a way to keep the spammers out properly. Whatever you did there was no harm done 🙂 Many thanks for the alerts to “empty the litter tray”

    Sorry for delayed response, KM; I’ve been busy with other stuff. My phone is a T-mobile MyTouch Q from LG; I don’t know what the browser is (it’s only identified unhelpfully as “browser”), but it’s version 2.3.6. The keyboard has actual buttons, not virtual. As I said, this weirdness is only happening on TDK, not on other sites or in email. Any suggestions would be welcome 🙂
