Welcome back! One issue of note.

Submitted by C B Wright on

We're running Drupal 7 now, and I think everything is mostly working, with one caveat.

If you are running Firefox or Chrome with the Firebug plugin, you may trigger an infinite javascript loop whenever you encounter the podcasting widget. Choosing the "Clear Activation List" function in the Firebug menu appears to alleviate the problem until the browser restarts. I don't have a good solution for this at the moment. If you have a good solution, suggestion, or can simply provide more information about the javascript error, please post here or drop me a line via the Contact form.

Not seeing the problem.

Firefox 14.0.1, Firebug 1.10.0

Well, that's potentially good news.

There's a chance that the site caching I'm using is preventing the problem from occurring.

Or maybe I've diagnosed the problem incorrectly, and it's something else entirely...

Comments on Fiction

Hi, I don't know if this is related to the upgrade, but I'm not seeing any link for commenting on your fiction pages. (maybe I've just missed it, or have browser trouble). I had wanted to post my response after finally getting around to finishing pay me bug.

Comments automatically shut down after a month...

The site automatically locks down comments after a month in order to deter blogspam, so comments for Pay Me, Bug! have been locked for a long time. At this point the only fiction piece with unlocked comments is for Curveball, because it's been over a month since I updated The Points Between.

... hmmm. Better get started on that.

Ah, fair enough.

Ah, fair enough.

Secure vs NonSecure items

For almost every page here (at work) -- I'm getting the popup that says something like "This page has secure and non-secure items. Do you want to display the non-secure items?" The things that seem to be non-secure seem to be some of the banner headings like "Articles" and "Site News". Can you make clone copies of them and stash under your https: site so that it won't complain any more (or otherwise fix your stylesheets)?

ARGH.

It shouldn't be doing that!

I thought those days were long behind me. OK, I need to figure out how to fix this little problem... thanks for letting me know.

Do me a favor...

... provide links to some of the pages where you get the non-secure popup. Also, what version browser are you running, etc?

The problem is...

... I went to the home page and looked at the page source. Every image tag either uses https: in its link, or links to it locally (i.e., "/files/images/etc") and the ones that link locally display https: when I right click on the image to view image info.

(This is using Firefox.)

So I don't know how to fix it when everything I look at appears to be linked properly.

All the pages are passing the tests at whynopadlock.com.

IE6

I believe IE6 has problems when links don't include the protocol, even if they are in fact secure. Yes, this totally sucks.

I replied in the forum...

I replied in the forum, but I'll also reply here. I'm running IE7 here at work (v7.0.5730.13 if it matters), and I think every page I display here gets the popup. I can't remembe if I also get it at home (where I'm mostly using IE8 -- I don't want to go to IE9 at this time, no matter how many times it complains about it), but I'll try to check tonight.
