Had notifications problems? 500s when posting?
Posted 10 October 2016 - 09:00 AM
I found a problem whose fault lies squarely with IP.Board* but apparently there was a workaround/fix coded into the forum so it was easy to deal with. I did some quick testing before and after and it should be fixed, but I haven't heard anybody else (except one person) mention not getting notifications so I'm not sure. And normally registrations drop to 0 when there are email problems but that didn't happen.
(* They abused PHP's mail function in such a way that a security fix made to PHP prevented HTML emails from being sent. Insert rant about IPS/IPB here.)
And by the way, if you ever have problems about emails - like are suddenly not receiving them anymore - PLEASE SAY SOMETHING! And that applies to anything that's clearly broken. IPB doesn't give any clear notice or warning about problems like that happening so I don't know if/when emails break. Which they've done multiple times before.
AND in the course of posting this, I discovered that notifications were COMPLETELY BROKEN. White-screen-of-death-showing-a-500 broken. #@*&^%( vim. Fixed.

I can't remember when I last received an email notification from this site.
I should also receive notifications in the bar at the top of the screen when a new topic is posted in the MySQL forum, but my last notification of any kind was Oct 8th, despite a new MySQL topic yesterday.

I just made a test thread. Did you get a notification for it?

The email was sent, but your provider bounced it due to a reverse DNS issue: the forums are on a .53 server, the email is from @phpfreaks.com, but phpfreaks.com is still on the old .52 server. I'll change the email to be @forums.phpfreaks.com as a hack for now.
