Hello all,
There is a massive security update for drupal important enough for them to issue a patch for drupal 6.x (which is what BGDF is built on).

The site is being updated and will be down for an hour or so Wednesday 9-10 AM EST - after which you should see "https" instead of "http" in the address bar.

Update issue

Seems there was an issue with the update causing icons/avatar image links to be broken, as well as some navigation links.

The error is a missing "/" in the address, like this:

I've alerted the tech admin, but in the meantime you can get around it by simply adding in the "/" sign immediately after the www.bgdf.com like:

Would it be possible to put this as one of those blog posts on the homepage? The homepage loads just fine.

I believe Rich already pinned the post. From the homepage you can READ all of the comment without any problems. So good idea Frank and hopefully we can get all of the issues resolved soon...

Some issues remaining:

  • RHS Forum links not working (missing "/" in URL)
  • Autocomplete on Private Messaging (PMs) causing an error
  • Other user Avatars/Pictures not displaying correctly

That's my short list ...

Just saw the pinned post

Thanks, just saw the pinned post. I missed it because I only glanced at the top post, which is the regular welcome message. That's my fault.

Corsair's logo is not showing up yet...

https://www.bgdf.com/forum/game-creation/design-theory/strategy-cooperat...

"Medieval Combat System" https://www.bgdf.comnode/20980

Is also showing up without the "/"...

BUT I am finding, many more Avatars/Pictures are working and even SOME of the RHS links are also working.

So my guess these are case-by-case corrections???

All fixed!

Everything should be working now - if you're finding intermittent images not loading now, you'll need to clear your cache and reload the page.

AND we have https, except for images.
