I think at this point we've seen it in North America, Europe and Australia on all platforms including mobile. And as I said I can go straight from a working account to a broken one simply by logging in and out. Everything points to these users having some commonality in the database.

I have sent your test - outcome to a member of wikidot.
Would be interesting to find out the difference between the accounts - where they are at home, which country, which ISP-network , which mail provider using…

I for myself cannot help

There is a simple "wikidot webbish theme" ( I think with left side menu ) as I have it since 10 years: http://matrura-1967-moedling.wikidot.com/system:join
You can find it in your Wiki/_admin" page under appearance and themes - themes - wikidot (_default) - "Webbish"
Perhaps you have to remove an external theme also..
Hope this helps

I was given credentials by an affected user and ran some tests. Logging straight out of my functional account and into theirs with no changes in privacy settings etc. results in the symptoms described. I do not observe any malformed cookies, and the only one that changes between the two accounts is the WIKIDOT_SESSION_ID. The response from ajax-module-connector.php is different on an affected account.

Normal account:
"content": {
"size": 2833,
"mimeType": "text/plain",
"compression": 1792,
"text": "{\"status\":\"ok\",\"CURRENT_TIMESTAMP\":1539622601,\"body\":\"\\n\\n \\n <div id=\\\"new-post-preview-div [cut the rest for length]

Affected account:
"content": {
"size": 98,
"mimeType": "text/plain",
"compression": -28,
"text": "{\"status\":\"not_ok\",\"message\":\"Invalid request\",\"CURRENT_TIMESTAMP\":1539623148,\"callbackIndex\":\"0\"}"

I have uploaded two HAR files for your review to https://bluesoul.me/wikidot/normal.har and https://bluesoul.me/wikidot/affected.har so you can compare the playback. Please let me know if I can answer any other questions or try any other tests.

hi there just to add my voice and say that admin ' 'Edcrab' ' at the Exigency wiki is getting an identical error message, across chrome edge and even internet explorer. Weirdly as far as I can tell every other user is fine

Just like pxdnbluesoul's example I even went as fr as letting him log in with my account and he has no trouble so it does seem specific to the account: no matter browser used or the wiki being accessed, the account itself always gets the same issue.

I did think it was an admin problem at first but if he gets the error everywhere and lots of other people have the same problem, it obviously cant be…

Screenshot just in case its still neccessary but it definitely same error message

Hi, I was trying some theme to my new wiki site and I can't go back or change anything ..

What was the initials 3,4 themes by default from Wikidot ?

I can't change the home anymore, every modification I try to do I get this error:
"Url of the external theme for category home can't be empty."

cheers
Nik

Two of our users conducted an experiment. User A is experiencing this issue, and gave their credentials to User B who is not. User B, when signed in to User A's account, has the same symptoms, and the two users are in different countries on entirely different setups. User B could not log out and into their own account until they cleared all cookies.

A few other

I can see the last post from here on 2. october 2018

To clarify, it's the user who is unable to view account activity and such. Not anyone else.

User's response:

My last action on wikidot was two days prior to this issue, when I used an upvote module. I am not able to post on this forum, which is why I'm using proxies. I'm using a mac. Nothing at all has changed since two days ago, when everything was working fine. I do not know how to add a site to secure sites on safari. In addition, I have had another person try to log in, from a completely different hemisphere to me, and they have the same problem on my account. Wikidot only produces these problems when logged into my account, when logged out, the problems do not occur.

User was unable to locate a "secure sites" option on mac - with my assistance over chat - and adding the mentioned URLs to an option to ignore proxy settings didn't resolve the issue.

I should also add that the user was only able to sign out of their account by clearing cookies - no account functions would work for them at all while signed in.

EDIT: Another user reports that adding wikidot.com and wdfiles.com to secure sites does not fix the issue.

Multiple SCP wiki users including Jish, Boogey_Man23, and Leveritas are experiencing the same issue and a few more have mentioned it in chat.

I can see the last post from here on 2. october 2018… is she able to post HERE in the forum?

Would be interesting which operating system she has used at this time and what has changed in the meanwhile for her.

I will inform a member of the team about this strange behaviour, but it seems to be a problem outside of wikidot ( local: adobe flash not allowed, browser blocking some javascript. wikidot.com and wdfile.com are not explicit setup to be secure, a.s.o.)
The modern browser are sometimes very fast in changing politics.

Would it help to declare "wikidot.com" and "wdfiles.com" to be "secure sites" in the browser security filter?
( did help me some years ago )

A friend of mine has been experiencing this same problem, he asked me to post in his behalf and here is a screenshot

I made a pretty cool layout for this. Where it displays part of your post including an image if its in your post somewhere at the top. I got the base from here: http://snippets.wikidot.com/code:thumbnail-page-list

//Not Done//

[[module ListPages category="*" separate="true" limit="5"]]
[[div style="float:left; width:1700px; height:600px; border:1px solid gray; background:#eee; margin:10px 10px 0 0"]]
[[table style="width:100%;height:100%;table-layout:fixed;"]]
[[row style="height:40px"]][[cell style="background:#ccf;"]]
**%%linked_title%%**

User Jazstar - http://www.wikidot.com/user:info/jazstar - is unable to comment, vote, edit, view page history, view page source, etc - or access account activity/messages/other functions - receiving an uninformative pop-up when attempting to do any of these things.

Screenshot of the pop-up.

This issue persists on multiple wikis, after clearing cookies, across browsers, devices - mobile and PC, different internet connections. It appears to be an issue with the user's account.

Jazstar can access page history and such when not signed in and is able to sign in, but beyond that things are broken.

EDIT: More users are reporting a similar issue!

This is for a single page (not the whole wiki) possible with the command block module CSS .
Also important is to understand how such CSS command would change the style of one page:
see http://community.wikidot.com/howto:change-the-background
or better the results of a search: http://community.wikidot.com/search:site/q/background

I also created a playground page for testing and showing the result: http://community-playground.wikidot.com/background-image

Hello!

New to editing wikidot pages and what not and was wondering if it is possible to put a background image on a single page? for instance say a Dungeon's and Dragon's character page, but like a faded picture of the character in the background with all the tables and words on top of it.

Any help or suggestions would be wonderful, thanks!

I had a user complaining he can't create an account. User name was supposed to be KerbalMine, no email confirmation received (GMail was used).

Are those problems with mail forms and joining are permanent issues? We have 2 outages caused by email service. But none during last 2 weeks. We are forced to change email sender provider from AWS where whole our infrastructure works to SendGrid. Actuallu SendGrid reports to us about 90% delivery rate. Most of those undelivered are yahoo.com, aol.com and Chinese spam. Also we are not sending all notifications form FREE sites as those lowers our ratings as sender (cause of spammers).

I'm glad you was able to point your domain to our servers. In general to use custom domain you have to point it creating CNAME record pointing on www.wikidot.com. Or A record (if you are not using subdomain) poining to IP. And how it can be done depends on your domain provider. Sometimes its a wizard sometimes you create proper record manually.
