Quick guide for the search
X


  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Why didn't they just make everyone sign into the old forum system? I mean why make us come to them, when they could have come to us?! We were already established and outnumbered new people to begin with? What was their real reason behind the change in the first place? I am only here a fraction as much as before as a result. The new forum is not as user or member friendly as the original forum, does not have a personal message feature and you have to check everything to find what you want. There is no search feature or anything else that is useful. Whose dumb idea what it to do this without thinking it through or at least making it as good as the previous system?

Well, they did talk about making their whole webpage run off one platform, which is smart from a sysadmin's point of view. HOWEVER, the implementation has been horrible. Bugs and decreased functionality is an insult against all the faithful members of this community, and I sincerely hope that the persons responsible, will do their utmost to remedy the situation A.S.A.P.

It seems the login/time out/cookie problem has been fixed, or not?

Nope, not sorted as far as I can see. And you still get directed to the 'Edit Profile' page after logging in. The best would be to get directed back to whatever page you came from.

Yeah, you're right. It looked like the time-out time was increased a bit this afternoon though.

still wondering what the "Stay logged in" tickbox is there for as it clearly doesn't keep you logged in.

Maybe remove it or fix the problem (cookie problem maybe)

EDIT: Apparently the FE_TYPO_USER cookie has a timeout of 1hour. I assume that is the cookie that keeps you logged in or not. If i remove that cookie and restart my browser i loose my login.

@webmaster: Please extend the timeout of the FE_TYPO_USER cookie to at least 1 week or what seems suitable. Most frequent users check the forum at least once a week.

Also please assign a redirect URL to the loginbutton. If nothing else then to the Forum frontpage since probably 99% of users who log in do so to use the forum. Best solution ofcourse is to redirect them to the page they where on when the clicked "log in" But that is probably to much of a problem.

Still looking into it.

This one is fixed now - but only if you use the log-in link on the the forum pages and not the link in the upper right corner.

I still have this problem even if i use the login link in the forum top insted of the one on the top right corner of the site. Both links go to the same page http://www.roskilde-festival.dk/uk/log_in/

You're right, the change has only been made for the Danish version.

Thats a bad slip-up since many of the frequent visitors use the English link since the are non-danish speaking.

Please fix the forum login for the UK site as well.

I use the english signup too simply because the danish translations of regular forum terms seems completely weird and confusing to me.

I'm actually not sure why we a forum setup that is in two languages when the only official language on the forum is english.

yes. The cookie has a time to live of 7 days. Should be sufficient for most users

Would it be possible to remove the Danish version and only have the English version of the forum available?
There are a lot of threads started in Danish now, probably also because the forum is available in Danish.

/signed.

Although I'm Danish myself, the forum is technically strictly in English so some kind of notice is in order, also to avoid having us post a "English, please"-post which is rather rude.

Is there any way the editing properties can be changed? Not being able to edit your post after someone has replied is annoying but it kill the ability to properly organize meets etc if not at least the topic starter can edit his first post.

It takes around 48 effective hours (a workday is 7,5 hours) to make pm if you are learning a new coding language, and the edit function fix takes around 20 minutes to fix....

But then again i could be wrong icon_redface.gif
