I can't get into my blog admin. It tells me I don't have permission; I tried this after logging in to the forums.

Edit: working now, though I see this error:
Fatal error: Call to a member function get_row() on a non-object in /www/blogs.scienceforums.net/html/wp-content/mu-plugins/ipbint.php on line 211

Edit, mark II: now it's not. It's gone psychotic.

I had a problem with login.

I managed through the "forgotten password" procedure, and it works well now.

Wonderful site. Good job.

AWWWWEEESSSOME!!

it's reaaal great..thanks a million guys..real refreshing..like christmas come early.

one thing i'de hope get fixed, many forums based on vbulletin show the same mini icon on tabs, making you confuse tabs of different forums, scienceforums used to have that atom icon, now it doesn't, so i'm mixing it with tabs of other forums..

but otherwise this thing is terrific.

Resizing worked for me. What exactly happened?

As for the favicon... we're not even using vBulletin any more, so I have no idea why you're seeing the vBulletin favicon. What do you see when you go to http://www.sciencefo...net/favicon.ico ?

I think there's a file size limit (in kilobytes) as well as a dimension limit.

Fudge, you're right about the favicon though, mine must have been cached. Fixed.

Check links again - I just fixed one problem (some showthread.php links didn't work). If you find any others that don't work, can you paste the links for me? I'll try to fix the redirect scripts.

The topics and posts thing is by design, I think - use the Find My Content button on the left-hand bar.

User IDs changed when the conversion was done, and alexgo17 now has the user ID you used to have. We changed the blog users to account for that, but apparently blog authors are stored separately. I'll cook up a fix.

No albums any more?

Indeed. If we pay extra, we can get the Gallery add-on, which is rather nice, but we'd have to come up with good uses for it.

I'm going to try to get vBulletin working in read-only mode somewhere in case you want to get your files back.

OK, I think I have a bead on this. I can't use a bookmark to go to any blog admin page, unless it's after I have gotten into the SFN forums (except for the initial login when it still didn't work). Thus far I can still get in if I have an SFN page open or I have visited SFN very recently. So perhaps there's an auto-logout feature whose timeout can be reset, or it's not recognizing that I want to stay logged in. What is also annoying is that trying to get into one of the admin features doesn't even redirect me to a login page.
