Re: surprising avatar behavior
Thanks, Andy. I will try fiddling with this when I have more time. The permissions looked OK, I did think of that–but maybe I’m not looking carefully. The blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/ should be writeable by the webserver, right? (there are over 1000 subdirectories in there–one for each user, I assume?)
But the really troubling thing was the browser crashes. Those were hard to accept.
This is really a big upgrade, I can see–change in the way themes work, avatars, forums. My own fault for trying to push it right away on a live install.
For now I’ve dropped back to 1.0–I have 200 students coming in on Sunday to start playing with the system. Best to play it safe until that’s over with.
