Bugs (and strange things...)

This is a discussion on Bugs (and strange things...) within the General Discussions forums, part of the Community Boards category; Code: #include <stdlib.h> #include <stdio.h> int main(int argc, char **argv) { printf("Hello Example!\n"); return EXIT_SUCCESS; } The question mark at ...

    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char **argv)
    {
        printf("Hello Example!\n");
    
        return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    The question mark at the top-right corner will open a new window with the text "@ABOUT@" in it. What's the purpose of it?

    It's a test of curiosity, to see if you'll click the button.

    This is really weird, but when I tried to go to the forum using the direct link (cboard.cprogramming.com) I kept getting a VB server error. About one minute later of refreshing it allowed me to enter.

    Probably a temporary server error. Report it if it keeps occuring.

    The forum keeps logging me out for some reason. I do not allow cookies but I have never been logged out automatically after logging in. The lack of cookies means that if I leave the site and come back I will need to login again. At least that is how it used to behave.

    Occasionally over the last week or so, when moving between pages here, I see messages like

    "Warning: Declaration of vB_ProfileBlock_vBSEOLikes::block_is_enabled() should be compatible with that of vB_ProfileBlock::block_is_enabled() in ..../vbseo/includes/functions_vbseo_ui_profile.php on line 52"

    The positioning of the message is at the top of the browser window (Firefox, if that matters).

    No definite repeatability, but it occurs often enough that I've noticed it. I've seen it sometimes when hitting the "New Posts" link, sometimes when reading a thread, and sometimes when I receive notifications. Doing a screen refresh does not necessarily cause repetition.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Sunshine, and read this, this, and this before posting again.

    I just started getting this tonight. I'm using Chrome FWIW. Same symptoms and message position.

    Weird.

    Creating a movable program help

    In spite of clicking only once, my message got double-posted - as did Matticus's message who was posting simultaneously, and they ended up interleaved (race condition?).

    Dunno if it's related, but the site itself had a database error for a minute or two just following that.

    I don't see any double post. Maybe the bug is on your end (or a mod got to them already), did you refresh the page after the post?

    As of today, I started seeing "warnings" appear on the top of the "advanced search" page. I also saw a similar message very briefly while posting (it almost immediately redirected to show the post correctly right after).

    Additional information (too late to edit previous post):

    Similar warnings on anyones "likes received" and "likes given" pages (thanks for bringing that to my attention, Codeplug )

    Clicked around a bunch, but didn't see them anywhere else.

    [edit]

    Saw another while saving an edit to this post:

    I've been seeing warnings like those reported by Matticus, except worded as

    "Warning: Declaration of vB_ProfileBlock_vBSEOLikes::block_is_enabled() should be compatible with that of vB_ProfileBlock::block_is_enabled() in ..../vbseo/includes/functions_vbseo_ui_profile.php on line 52"

    It doesn't happen all the time, and I haven't worked out a predictable way to trigger it. I saw the above message on the list of notifications I get (e.g. when someone gives a "Like").
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Sunshine, and read this, this, and this before posting again.

    I'm also noticing that, when posting, I sometimes receive a popup from my browser (firefox) asking for permission to move away from a page (with one option to continue, and one not to).

    Selecting the option to continue is what is necessary to actually post (selecting the other allows continuing to edit). The catch is, on an increasing number of occasions, selecting the option to continue results in TWO copies of the post appearing in the thread. When I see those within the permitted period, I delete them.

    Same happens if I edit one of my posts - so I can duplicate a post by attempting to edit it. Or have two slightly different versions of a post.
