Re: Some issues now?

I lost all my minibar links.

I thought you didn't drink. Or is the site meltdown so bad you're reaching for the small bottles of scotch?

Well, I fixed it all except for the IMs ..at the top of every page going back 7-8 years! and I can't figure out how to put the link in for minibar icon for postlist/all. It is driving me nuts because I use that link constantly here to navigate the site. But everything else that was messed up I got fixed.

There is no truth to the rumour that Fatness drinks anti-freeze and follows up with the required Vodka gallon chaser (to prevent kidney damage).

Just visit the page you want to add, and click the little green icon with a plus in the middle:

Do you have the minibar on your dslreports web page? Does it have the little green + icon. Go to the page you want to put in minibar so that the URL is what you want to save. Then press that + icon and just follow your instincts to add a " updated posts " icon.

On the menu bar at top of all dslreports pages, click on "Forums"; then on the next menu bar below click on "Your Forums"; then on the next menu line down click on "slow". That did it for me.

That did it, thanks! Also had to change the Site Style from Horizontal to Vertical as thats how I had it before, and reset my site-wide theme...

Now I think its all back the way it was...

Whatever this problem was, it apparently wiped out forum preferences from a member's profile. I had to go in and re-pick all my preferences to get things back to normal.

Yeah, but not all preferences & settings, just some, mostly having to do with the look & feel of the site...

Minibooze is easier than minidrugs. They're too small. I think I swallowed a minibong.

So, to recap... site style and minibar preferences wiped out; everything ever 'cleared' (click on the little red envelope) reset back to not cleared; every IM that was 'kept' has been deleted ...something else as yet undiscovered?

Why should I bother rebuilding my dozen or more minibar links until we know what caused it and that it probably won't happen again?

I'm still not clear on how to fix my theme issue. I don't remember ever changing my theme, but I've been on here for years now so I might have at some point. Some forums such as this one have the correct colors, some others don't.

You can go here: »/speak/themepr···/default and click on the different themes to preview them and find the one you were using.

The FAQ related to this (»Site FAQ »Modification of Default Forum Style) really needs to be updated as there is no "theme-override" dropdown menu anymore as shown in the screen shots and the "this page" link in the very first sentence doesn't go anywhere useful.

reply to fatness
I had at least 2, maybe 3, that were 'kept'. They were there a week or three ago, and they're not there now. That doesn't in itself mean that this problem was the cause, but that does make the problem suspect as far as I'm concerned. They were 'system' IMs if that matters. Will system IMs disappear on their own within a short amount of time?

They shouldn't. I have system messages going back to 2003.

The link shows 2--one from today and one from last month, which leaves 3 that I know of as "missing" (and, no, I don't delete stuff--wouldn't bother to).

Edit: Since yesterday, one of the two--the older one--has disappeared. Seems like an ongoing problem.

That did it! Thanks! Of all things my theme was 'default'.

2 or 3 were kept, you found 2. So either none are missing or 1 is?

I still have all my kept IM's, 54 pages of them, dating back 514w3d.

Of the three missing messages, were they from yesterday or further back?
