Three cheers!
« on: May 19, 2020, 12:03:22 PM »
...for Smokey! He not only fixed our forum by applying the latest software, but when that mod made our header pic vanish and our printing to go AWOL, he diligently backtracked though the mods that were applied until he fixed it. No doubt a TON of work and man-hours went into this. At the very least we owe him a huge round of applause (although a small donation wouldn't hurt...just click on the DONATE button). Being a tech genius is a thankless job. Anytime something goes wonky everyone runs for the tar and feathers, and when a miracle is performed, people shrug and go about their business. Not so much on this forum (we have a great bunch of fellers here!) but definitely on others I've been privy to.
Thanks a million, Smokey! &\?

I echo this sentiment. Smokey does a LOT behind the scenes, to keep this place up and running.

I for one truly appreciate it. Thanks again for all you do Smokey.  )l_

Correct. 

Without Smokey’s talent, time and attention over the years (and just days ago) this forum would have been a stone busted flush.  Same deal for 58 Rem. Thanks Smoke - for all you do.

So then, who’s to finger for the attack?  Was it enemies foreign or domestic?

Absolutely, people are quick to point fingers, not so quick to acknowledge accomplishment. I know I have done it before, so here's to the man!

Y'all are all very welcome. I do what I do out of appreciation for a wonderful community which has earned my dedication.

I wish I was a tech genius, but I know what I know through research and trial and error.  The fact that we are still here is the result of a team effort and, yes, much persistence on my end. My behind the scenes guys are Namecheap support and the SMF support forum. They do not always provide the answers, but often aid by process of elimination. Still, we would be history if it were not for them.

This is a call for help with the only remaining issue any of our forums has regarding missing text from seemingly random posts on 1858remington.com ...  https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=573352.0

I just cheered by making a small donation to Smokey / the Forum.

Hi, there is still a problem trying to add a .jpg attachment to a post. The error message is:

Call to undefined function dl()

Richard, I tried to see your post on my thread (Unexpected problem) and there was nothing there. There are some of your posts that are blank also, even before the recent upgrade.
