  • Strange forum home page issue (screenshots included)

    Howdy all -

    I'm having a strange issue on my site, http://boards.slackercentral.com. It seems that when some users visit the site, it screws up the page when they visit for the first time. It happens in the Who's Online section of the front page, and it looks like this:



    When the person refreshes the page it looks fine. Refreshing over and over won't make it happen again either. It only occurs on the first visit. Also, this only seems to happen in IE.

    Something similar is happening to my Mozilla users too. One of them described this:

    All I have to do usualy, is close Mozilla, reopen it, and go to the forums main page, and then click on any forum.

    Most of the time, not always, but almost always, it does that.

    Mozilla 1.4 final, also did it in 1.3 final, Windows 2000 Pro w/SP 3.

    I'm wondering if it's something to do with my versions of PHP and MySQL, I have PHP 4.3.0-dev installed (which doesn't sound right), and MySQL 3.23.52. Should I try upgrading these? If so, are the latest stable versions (looks like php 4.3.2 and mysql 4.0) ok to use with vBull 2.3.0?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

      At least upgrade PHP. Your MySQL version should be fine and shouldn't be the culprit here.

      I seem to recall this happening to someone else a long time ago, but I can't find the thread relating to it.

          Update!

          It's definitely not a vBulletin2 problem - it's a PHP issue. It's also happening in vBulletin3.

          And it's still happening after upgrading to php 4.3.2. I think we're up to PHP 4.3.3 now, so I'll try that.

          Anyone have any other ideas?
