This is a list of technical problems with the site itself that you might have. Feel free to reply with questions or comments, but remember that this thread will get pruned as its purpose is to be informative.

You may need to go to the theme selector in your profile
and choose from one of the elliquiy2 dropdowns (for some reason, 'default' won't work).
After setting it manually, the quick theme selection should work for you.Pages aren't changing when I know they should!
First, make sure your computer's clock is set correctly, along with the time zone. Lots of stuff on the Internet is going to break these days if your clock is out of sync.
If you know that's right, you can use the clearcookies script, below, possibly with clearing your browser's cache as well.
With us forcing https now, dealing with proxies is no longer a problem. Woot.How do I clear all of Elliquiy's cookies?
Click here: https://elliquiy.com/clearcookies.php
This is a bit better than 'clearing cookies' as it will also purge server-side session data for you, and leave other sites' cookies intact. This also makes sure your local session cache is purged, which can fix a lot of weird problems.Some replies in this thread are missing / the board has the wrong number of pages
You can contact any staff member
and they have access to the fix scripts. Not all staff are familiar with using it, so it may not be an immediate fix, but your posts are not 'gone' gone, and can be recovered.I deleted a PM label and-
Don't do that. Rename them instead, or if you feel adventurous, delete them from bottom to top. They are implemented horrifically, and you are gambling when you delete a PM label.I'm having issues with my PMs (possibly caused by the above)!
If it's being told you have new PMs and you don't have any, sometimes this is just the cache getting out of whack - the software wasn't designed with caching in mind. It should resolve itself either when you get a new pm or after a few minutes, depending.
Otherwise, send me a PM about it, or post a thread in the help! forum and I'll get directed to it. I need to make manual database adjustments for this.
I may throw a "Fix my PMs" script together, if it becomes a common problem.The custom BBCode doesn't work on the custom parts of the site
SMF has this 'innovation' called 'multiple sources of truth', which causes problems all over the place. I sometimes make a go at fixing it but obviously it hasn't worked so far.
Ultimately, when making changes to the code of the site it's a question of "Is this really worth the time involved compared to working on the new software?" there are some things that don't take me very long at all, some things have hidden surprises (like 'Why does the quick theme select work for some people and not others?'), but the entire SMF code base is an unholy mess. A lot of seemingly trivial things are not so.I'm a Knight/Dame/Champion/Mentor/etc. and cannot use the Wiki
Access to the wiki is determined by having the Lord/Lady/Liege title in your main or additional groups. Any staff member can make sure you have the appropriate additional group and get you sorted.
I have some other technical issue with E
First, try the clearcookies script, above.
Make a post in this thread or in the Help! forum, staff and I will collate/cull answers as needed.
