I knew this, but no idea why it happened. Wait a few days and all will be well.

Tako, someone tried to steal my identity and I changed numbers. I'll contact you.

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

I'm amazing. I did nothing! Hahahaha.

But it definitely was not working for me when I checked.

It appears not. I'll take a look after work.

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

It was a sort of splat icon I think? I'm abroad and busy this weekend (riding the Spring classics in Belgium) so it will have to wait before I can look at it.

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

This is now fixed. Sadly, it was my dodgy code at fault. Thanks to Tako for pointing me in the right direction. Image

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

It has been reported that the Snowmen are not updating. I have looked at this and have found that although my code asks for the "Free Spirits" data page, the C2 site returns the full set of results (180+ pages). The script also asks for the next page in the honour board but keeps getting the first o...

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

Erk. Updated the php on the server to 7.2 and the Meterboard exploded. Think it is fixed now. It actually rolled the season over! This will need unpicking :(

Re: Meterboard 2 - bugs and feature requests

Yeah, that was interesting. My code was confused for some reason but it looks like it is working now. I think C2 might have changed something their end. We have been using the filtered "Free Spirits" page for the screen scrape, but somehow the code didn't like it any more. It now goes to the generic...

The challenges are updated every 4 hours, the meterboard, every hour. Hope that helps!

I had switched off the https whilst they got back to me. But Tapatalk appears to be working with https (I'm using it now) so I think (hope) we're sorted. I've turned https back on anyhow.

MB2 Updated - now has auto season rollover

You shouldn't notice anything, but I today did a big update to the meterboard such that it will auto rollover at the end of the season. It does something like: backup the database copy the final meterboard page and make a link to it at the top of the new page zap everyone's metres back to zero notes...

25th September 2018 I switched over, but tapatalk refuses to accept the change and keeps looking for the http site. I am going to switch off the forced https until that is resolved. I have put in a support request to tapatalk. Later that day Tapatalk seem to have sorted it out. We're back to https ...

Re: fall team challenge

I am in, and hopefully the tree will appear on the Meterboard for all participants who post metres. Yesterday I wrote a beautiful page for adding icons which make it much easier. :mrgreen:

Re: Web site renewal

Thank you everyone. I feel very motivated and not out of pocket any more. :fsgrin: I'm going to look at buying some software the might make adding the meterboard badges possible for a volunteer. Yes, cycling. You don't break your ribs very often on an ergonomic, do you, but I've done both sides now....

Re: Like button

FWIW I do hardly any coding now, in life or on this site.

I looked at "Like" buttons a while ago but there was no plug in. I try to avoid plugins now because they cause problems on upgrades. Saying that, if you find a mature plugin that does that, tell me and I'll take a look.

Re: Web site renewal

Names on the meterboard would be a challenge, but possible with effort. I'd have to remember to record the donor list in two places though since I'm not keen to start addressing the forum database with my code any more (very minor lyrics!) than I do already. I change the colour and icon of the donor...

Re: Web site renewal

Thank you very much. I realised we had three subscribers, not two at the time of the first part, now we have five!

And another generous donation means I'm over half way to this year's total.

Thank you

Web site renewal

I just got invoiced for the next year of hosting. It has crept up over the years and is now $98. Donations still trickle in but don't cover the cost. If 16 people became subscribers at £5 a year this would cover it, we currently have 2. I'll sort out this year, but I really don't row at all, and hav...
