View Full Version : ANNOUNCEMENT: Problem with forum profile access!

09-13-2006, 04:39 PM
There is a temporary problem with the forum software which means you can't edit your profile (e.g. if you wanted to change your sig or avatar). If you try to access your profile, you will get an error message something like this:

The XSL stylesheet for this page has a syntax error: platform_user_profile: Error: 'variable "field_name" not defined', File: 'otstylesheet://platform_user_profile/../global-customizations.xsl', line: 752

Looks like some graemlins have crept into the system... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

I've informed Ubi, and will let you know when the problem has been fixed.

VG , any word on when this is going to be resolved ? I'm getting tired of seeing this white Photobucket box below.

I know it's only Monday , and their probably working on it as I speak , but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Thanks buddy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sorry, no news yet Tuddley http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'll post here as soon as I know something.

In the meantime, you can fix you missing image! Here's how...

The URL of your missing image file is:


So all you need to do is upload a new file called 'WarAceSig.jpg' (exact spelling and letter-case) into your photobucket account, and you sig should display it. Give it a try! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thank you , I thought of that , but forgot name of sig. Woo Hoo !!

Now you appear to have lost your avatar?

09-18-2006, 04:11 PM
I see my avatar , can you see it know ?

BTW , your Please sign the petition to save U-534 link says :

Not Found
The requested URL /petition/index.htm was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I just see the 'Picture of tuddley3' text, which usually only appears if the avatar graphic is missing... I'll clear my browser cache later and see if that fixes it.

It looks like the U-534 petition site has been taken down http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I've not heard from the guy who ran it for a long time... There is no news of U-534's future anywhere - I just hope that she isn't left to rot... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif I have a contact at the Port of Liverpool (which owns the land U-534 stands on), so I'll see if I can get some news.

I think the profile access problem is now fixed - you should now be able to edit your signatures etc. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Let me know if you still have problems with your profile.
