Site Issues? Please post here
« on: September 26, 2009, 07:51:10 PM »
If you happen to be looking through any of the sites, and find a page with broken links, spelling errors, or whatnot and don't feel like fixing it yourself, please post here. Simply post either a link to the page, unless it's one of the main pages, and someone will eventually fix it maybe.

Known site issues - October 6th, 2011

[!] The front page needs to be redesigned to add Ocarina 3d, Link To The Past, and Skyward Sword sites
[!] Images used for the side padding and top separator are missing from non OoT sites.
[!] Page CSS needs a bit of clean-up (header elements clash in some instances, like h2 and h3)
[!] We need a uniform guideline for making and editing pages, for consistency.
* The Version Differences page no longer has the fire temple songs
* No solution to the Google Chrome bug where it will auto play the two different Fire Temple Songs?

Unwritten Pages - October 6th, 2011

Many LTTP pages are stubs.

I hope this is the right topic for this.

I've mentioned this a few times in IRC and it still hasn't been fixed. I guess I'm the only one experiencing it.

In the "Account Related Settings" section under "Profile", I'm unable to change any of the settings. This is because when I put my password in, it says it's the wrong password. This is not true; I even changed my password to see if that would fix anything, and it didn't.

It's pretty annoying, because there are some settings in there I want to change. Hopefully we can get this sorted out.

I dont know if this is just me but when I use ZSR IRC the background is messed up. It repeats. after it says "ZeldaSpeedRuns.com" right after that it says "ns.com"

Anyone else have this problem?

Forgive me if I'm nitpicking or being critical, but I just noticed this:

Quote
Welcome to ZSR's Ocarina of Time section. See below for recent updates and news, or view this section's content in the expandable menu to the left. If you can't navigate the menu you need to install Java.
If you'd like to contribute content come to #zelda @ irc.speeddemosarchive.com (If you don't have an IRC client use this link).

From what I can tell, the menu on the left only uses some Javascript, which is not the same thing as Java at all.  Javascript is something that is usually supported internally by the browser, rather than being an external plugin or something similar.  Also, if they're using a browser made since like 1998, it probably supports Javascript.  In short, installing Java will have no effect on whether or not the menu works, since it uses Javascript (not Java).

Windows and the Internetexplorer don't come with Java(script) because microsoft didn't want to pay royalties anymore. The link points you to the Java virtual machine, which will also handle Javascript.
I suppose we could remove the link and probably don't loose a lot of users, but since we have that introduction text anyway and you also need the java VM for our web chat, it doesn't hurt to have it there.

Menu items in the OoT section are off from the new update I think. When you click bomb hovering it brings you to ISG, or something like that for most of them.

Sorry about that. I must have ran an older version of my updater on the OoT site yesterday which had a bug that caused page names to not match the proper link in some cases, and didn't notice the links were jumbled. I just ran the updater and everything seems fine now.

I discovered a few issues with the site that I don't know how to fix...

Let's say you have two tabs open, and you go the TP site in one, and the OoT site next with the other. If you click on the Admin link on the TP site, it takes you over to the OoT site's page because when you opened up an OoT page, the $game variable is overwritten.

In a few cases, the site doesn't handle invalid URLs in a proper fashion. For example, if you add anything after http://zeldaspeedruns.com/site/index.php?game=oot, it will try to load a site that doesn't exist, when it should instead throw a 404 or something.

this should be fixed ASAP. when done, it leaves exposed PHP laying around, and that's never a good thing.
