AC Nation, we have a problem...
« on: March 05, 2015, 12:46:01 AM »

It's not a huge problem, but yeah.

As many of you may have noticed, we've been invaded by some code that has decided to take up residence in the header of our website. You might think this is an easy fix, but after a few weeks of trying to correct it, it seems to be an issue with the eFiction script and I can't get rid of it right now. I'll have to ask the eFiction folks for their advice.

That being said, when I was putting everything back the way it is supposed to be this evening I had an issue with a corrupted file. This means that any stories that were updated after last Thursday, February 26th... you'll have to post those chapters again and you'll have lost reviews posted after that date. I'm really sorry about that but I figure it could be a lot worse than a few days lost so let's breathe a little sigh of relief.

I'll do my best to continue trying to get rid of the weird code but in the meantime, it's only an aesthetic issue, it doesn't do anything the functionality of the site and isn't a virus or anything dangerous. Just code for the feature that allows us to do things like this and this.

Again, sincere apologies if you are in a position of having to repost.

Oh well. Makes me glad I save my chapters with the coding intact after I copy/paste/update LOL. I don't have to add all the bold and italics tags again.

It also makes your line breaks and paragraph breaks happen without having to enter the br and p codes after each line. I can't get rid of it, it's part of the script, I just don't know why that code has decided to stick around for an extended stay. It's hiding somewhere.

Weird. I don't envy your challenges right now. I can't do html worth shit. It's why I only created a website AFTER the creation of wordpress.

Well, it took far too much of my life and caused more havoc than I would have liked but I fixed it. No more annoying code at the top of the page LOL
