you might want to have a question about email notifications not working/forum notifications semi-not working & that neither is going to be fixed.

I have updated it. BTW this is just a bug in the current version of our software, so when we upgrade the email server encrypted connection bug disappears and we resume the normal service. So it took awhile for them to fix the bug and it is taking us a long time to integrate the change.

Edited to clarify: I meant that if it does not work then perhaps alternate instructions should be substituted, or a working contact email should be provided.

This is related to the email problem. I've updated the FAQ and made that question one about alternative contact methods, etc.

Based on the context, I assume it should be replaced with this link:

https://forum.language-learners.org/feed.php

I also highly encourage admin to do a search in the database and remove all mentions of the previous domain considering someone has redirected it to malicious spam. Based on a quick Google search, this includes both posts and language log urls in profiles (@Mohave, @Komma, etc).

Code: Select all

site:forum.language-learners.org "how-to-learn-any-language.org"


In Progress

(Stupid admin mistake, I edited your post instead of replying!)

Note also that the phpBB software distinguishes between the photo and avatar. the photo is supposed to be in your profile, the avatar next to each post. 400x600 makes sense for a profile photo but not a userpic :lol:

I will add a question about avatars, etc.
