      17. major bugs
      ALL MAJOR BUGS APPEAR TO BE FIXED 17/1  ... IF NOT PLEASE POST IN SUPERTALK 6 THREAD.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. encoding issue
       i had some chat with the guy from Russia and here is what i'm seeing right now (text should be Cyrillic): FIXED seems like DB issue during upgrade.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      2. links / redirects  1. permalinks to comments no longer work (both new ones or old ones when you check someone's posting history). SEEMS TO BE FIXED [??]
      2. seems to have lost post reference on older posts [pre-2011]?
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      3. unread content
      after changing settings for unread content and saving them - the setting do not stick and appear to return to default. [?] WELL IT WORKS FOR ME...16/1
      SEE POST IN SUPERTALK 6 thread explaining how to make proper settings.
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      4. page number navigation + previous and next buttons often link to [a blank page or page displaying the 300x250 ad.] rather than destination and hang.              - see detailed posts in this thread]. mainly FIREFOX SAFARI [reported] and WINDOWS 7 CHROME
      - suspect it is calling some dodgy code - noticed 'doubleclick' on the dialog bar.
      TEMP FIXED.... or at least found the javascript that was causing it...
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      5. clicking topic title and jumping to the last unread post on a thread seems to go to random page -->  maybe just need to adjust user settings to show most recent at top[?]  
      FIXED. now links to LAST UNREAD POST
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      6. SECURITY WARNINGS
      new google warnings for pages with links to http.     next stage fixes

      TECH UPDATE [3]   04/25/2018

      06/01/2018
      1/ classifieds --> offline till 4.3.3 upgrade
      2/ profile pics now do not update [?]
      3/ front page slider not working [?]
      4/ change password not working [?]
      5/ 4.2.7 --> 4.3.3 upgrade --> TO DO  ------------------------- 05/26/2018 1/ rep frozen --> FIXED
      2/ emoticons javascript errors ---> FIXED
      3/ image uploads on classifieds --> FIXED ON SANDBOX - NOW JUST NEED TO UPGRADE ON PRODUCTION. 
      4/ a cloudflare captcha security message pop up when i saved this announcement? ---> FIXED
      5/ theme editing  ---> FIXED
      6/ plug-ins not updating ---> FIXED
      7/ 4.2.7 --> 4.3.3 upgrade --> TO DO ------------------------- 04/27/2018 one small tech bug has a way of rapidly mutating and cascading throughout a system. that's what has happened over april, and so to fix what should be simple issues require monumental troubleshooting and coordination between server managers, developers, designer and air traffic controller [me].  just to let you know what's been keeping me sleepless and cashless lately
      1/  we moved all image storage to amazon S3. // that went well except the profile pics didn't sync. that devoured 2 weeks of my life.
      2/  we migrated all hosting to cloud based droplets at digital ocean.
      3/  we consolidated all DNS to run floating IPs via cloudflare. this also makes it faster and more secure.
      4/  tons of optimization and tweaking
      5/  upgrade of supertalk core software to 4.2.8 supertalk now runs on 3 load balanced nodes and a separate database. we managed to get it working on 1 but maxed that out and ungraded to 2. that caused syncing issues and you might recall a day when posts were all over the place or seemed to vanish. reconfigured it again and moved to 3. it's been pretty stable since then, so hoping no further issues. the site crashed intermittently around 2 weeks ago and at hyper critical times making me age about 5 years.
      -----------
      remaining issues on supertalk seem to be related to something that went pear in copying over the supertalk system software.
      techs suspected it was to do with privileges and firewalls but that hasn't resolved it.
      -----------
      just going to need to wait till one of the many techs i am working with figure it out.
      unfortunately not every tech person we work with always understand the complexity of supertalk and so things take time to sort out when they go wrong.
      besides, on the internet no-one can hear me scream [at them] ... as i said before
      with tech stuff if it's working 99.9999% correctly, it's broken. ... and as if the above wasn't enough...
      6/  we're remaking the non supertalk travel side of superfuture. [superfuture7]
      7/  our supertravel and supernews CMS doesn't work on the new servers and needed to be temporarily remade as a static version
      8/  once the above working then need to migrate and stitch the old databases together.
      9/ we still need to upgrade supertalk from 4.2.8 --> 4.3.1 fun on the upside... once all above is done superfuture will be essentially remade from ground up

      ;-) ------------------------------
