PLEASE READ: Bug Fixes and New Issues

HippieVan at 12:00AM, May 13, 2016

We are in the process of implementing bug fixes right now! The following bugs have been fixed:

1. When pre-uploaded/queued comics go live on the set date they do not appear in the “recently updated” list, and sometimes have the wrong date.

3. Multiple page/bulk uploader sometimes ends up with pages out of order. The uploaded comic pages need to be ordered by the order they were arranged when uploaded: i.e. the page at the top of the screen is first, the next one down is second and so on. Currently it orders them by whichever page uploads first.

4. When a new comic page has the same filename as an old one it replaces that old file. Image files need to be assigned random alpha numeric names so they don’t overwrite.

5. Image links have Amazon server information tacked on after .jpeg portion (eg: Signature=cCEKIH3iAG7NUYrNVgWtqjMpMz8%3D&Expires=1459154303&AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJNTWODVRHV3VHO4A), all that needs to be removed wherever images are posted.

6. The “Quote” bug in the forums needs to be fixed: The closing quote tag is spelt “qoute” so this causes an error when used.

HOWEVER, some new issues have popped up now. In particular, some people are having issues logging in and uploading comic pages. Additionally, manually uploaded comic pages are not appearing in the updated list now. We're really sorry! :(
There is apparently a very heavy load on the database causing these issues, so we're trying to work out why that's happening.

UPDATE: We're trying to roll back the latest bug fixes so we can fix this.

If you're having any problems with the site right now, the best place to report it is here in the forums:
If you can't log in, you can also send a message to the DD Facebook page or email myself or ozoneocean.

I was able to upload a page just now, let's see how long it sticks I guess :S!

The DD server will be shutdown for an hour soon so the troubleshooting process can continue.

I haven't been able to log in at all! Oh, hold it I'm logged in now. But seriously, couldn't log in for a day. Alas, that's the problem with software. Fix two bugs and create a new one. ^_^;;;

Ozoneocean at 7:15PM, May 13, 2016

The problem is still there. -_-

I'm confident that everything will be fixed soon and in working order!

Alexey is troubleshooting the code on a test server.

Yeah I can't load a page...! But I work in Information Services so I'm sympathetic! I know this has to frustrating to you guys - fixing bugs only to see other pop up due to unforeseen ripple effects!!

Alexey has told me he will try and roll back the latest bugfixes.
