Members may have noticed that the usual sidebar content has not been displaying at Slotblog for about a day.

 

There is some issue with the IP.Board software used at Slotblog that is screwed up and I am awaiting a response to the trouble ticket I opened yesterday afternoon with IPS.

 

I'll get this repaired as soon as I can.

I use [View New Content] so hadn't noticed anything was missing. :)

As a 'side-note' did the problem arise right after the site was down yesterday?

Bob,

 

Yes, I am 99% certain this was self-inflicted damage, caused by my clumsy attempt to update the Tapatalk mobile app, which led to both problems. Dunno what I did wrong, as I've updated Tapatalk many times before with no issues. The sidebar disappearance was collateral damage resulting from our webhost's attempt to help me fix the original problem.

 

I just hate it when I don't have someone else to blame... LOL!

Try holding down the "Ctrl" Key and clicking the "F5" button at the same time.

 

That will clear your cache and refresh the current page you are viewing.

 

Sometimes, that is all that is needed :)

I haven't had the Birthday sidebar since this problem started.  Tried CTRL +F5 but that didn't help.

I don't see the "Upcoming Calendar Events" either if I'm logged on. Once I log off, they do appear. The same thing happens to the birthday list. Logged on, it disappears, logged off, it does appear. Things still aren't set quite right.

OK, thanks, guys. That gives me a hint as to what the problem could be.

 

I did open a ticket with IPS support regarding this problem, but no reply the last time I looked.

OK, I found some more permission matrix issues and have changed the settings.

 

Will the members who reported problems in this thread please let me know if there have been any changes in what they are seeing.

Upcoming Calendar Events is now showing but not Birthdays.  But there may not be any birthdays today.

I've been doing more work on this, Don, and there are two birthdays today.

I did figure out the problem with the calendar sidebar display and am continuing to work on the birthdays not showing in the sidebar.

I have the upcoming calendar events back, but not birthdays. I generally use the "View New Content" button to read Slotblog, so that's not a priority for me.

I've got everything but birthday's right now but then there might not be any today. This is the first time no birthday's appeared in the last few days.

As usual, the non-display of birthdays in the sidebar was my fault. It is fixed now.

 

Thanks to IPS Support for their help in resolving this.
