Thanks, coRpSE. (LoneStar, too).  Appreciate you taking the time to look.
At least you've confirmed it's isolated to my site.  It worked on 209e and failed after the 209f update.  I have a test environment (experiencing the same problem) so I'll restore that back to 209e, make sure it works, then do the 209f upgrade again.  When I figure it out, I'll let you know.

As for the slow page load times, Using the network tab in the developer console, I can see that your Event calendar mod, take a nearly a full 2 seconds to load, this is one of the main causes of slow loading,

Thanks.  My whole race scheduling system is ingrained in that calendar software so I may be stuck with that.  Been running it for years.  However, I will look into it and see if there are some opportunities for improvement.  It runs outside the nuke environment and the calendar is just an iframe display from it.

Like coRpSE says, It could also be the amount of database connections you are making on the homepage as well, 352 queries is a very large amount for a landing page, This items need to be cached, especially the data that is not updated very often.

See my response to coRpSE above. Big change in those windows loading since cacheing them.

Also the screen size checker mod you are using, is causing quite a lot of screen load lag, I am not sure what you are using to find the screensize, but what ever it is, I would disable it to save on load times.

I've disabled it on initial page load.  Client can still request if they need to.  It's a simple call back to the site with the screen sizes in the session response.  However, the need for it has changed since 209f.  The changes in 209f have made the screen more responsive and I can now adjust my coding to let html size the data as opposed to me doing it.  
Thanks.

Oh, and BTW: I came across your Easter Egg.  Nice job.  That should be in one of the default theme windows when you first install BlackMagic.  Clever.   lachen

Now, for the Slow page loading. That could be anything. Is it happening with all themes, or just certain themes?
I noticed that your site is running 370 DB queries on each page load. I am sure that could lessen by making some of those blocks cache the information, so it doesn't need to call 370 DB queries each time the page loads. Likewise, I am running into the same issue on my site. I have it down to 100 DB queries ATM, but I want to get that as minimum as I can.


Thanks for the idea of caching the pages.  I've been able to halve the number of DB calls on the main page as well as given me some ideas for other places deeper in the site.  Great tip!

I did a fair amount of digging today an I came up completely blank on the btt issue.  I found the javascript that handles that and compared it to the one that was there before 209f and the only differences were in the comments.  The actual code is exactly the same.
If I use the BlackMagic theme with the btt set to true(disable evo button), the icon changes but absolutely nothing happens when you click it.  If I set it to false(use the evo button) then the old button icon comes back but when I press it the page moves towards the top just one line.  Doesn't matter which theme I use, they all behave the same so it's not a BlackMagic issue its a 209f issue.  Still stumped on that.  I think LoneStar has been in looking at it.  I'll keep digging as well and let you know if I come across anything.

Appreciate the info on the missing folder.  At least it wasn't something I missed when I downloaded the theme.  That's mostly cosmetic and is on a page which isn't visited too often.  I'll keep your tips for when I get time to dig into it. (Or, when the next update comes out.)

Thank you both for the input.

Will work on the issues you mention over the next several days.

Lonestar, thanks for your offer to look into the button.  I'll PM you on your site as soon as I get you an ID setup.

Hi, Corpse.
Been a while since we spoke and noticed you had gone dark for a while.  Glad to see you back on.

I too have been working with Lonestars BlackMagic.  Great job.  Made a lot of my clients who use phones happy.

So, now to the reason I'm here. (If I should be taking to Lonestar just say so and I'll head back there)


  1. I ran into this during the 2.0.9f update required for the new theme.  After completing the update, the "backtothetop" button no longer works.  On some themes(SimpleBlack2) it will move a single line up and on other themes it has no effect at all.  It shows up on all of them, but just doesn't take you back to the top when you press it. (Worked fine before the 9f update)
  2. I can't get my LM-BlackMagic to use the entire screen like you have here no matter how hard I try.  Now, I think there are a lot of settings that are hard-coded that will probably be in the next release that may make this easier. But, how do I get the theme to use the entire screen width? One difference is that I use both side panels and you are only using the left panel.  Don't know if that is a problem or not.
  3. Periodically(I haven't nailed down exactly what triggers it) the page will take forever to load.  If I'm lucky I can sometimes catch it and see in debug that its loading the same code over and over again.  I think its jscript but I'm not sure and I can't remember right now any of the lines of code to help determine where this may be happening.  So, just wondering if you've heard anything like this mentioned.
  4. (and this one probably is for Lonestart but I'm shotting it out to you anyway) If I use the Unanswered Posts link, the resulting page shows an ALT text of No New Posts and a broken icon link for img src="themes/LM-BlackMagic/forums/images/board/folder.png" width="19" height="18" alt="No new posts" title="No new posts". I went to investigate and after checking my LM-BlackMagis.zip file noticed that there is no themes/LM-BlackMagic/forums/images/board folder that came with the installation of the theme.  Did I miss something or did it just not make it into the file?


Don't mean to dump on you with all this.  I really am excited about the direction you guys are headed.

Oops.  Sorry. Never dawned on me that HTML would get gobbled up in the post.

Line #19 in the viewtopic_body.tpl file.

And, now that I look at your site, it appears you may have come across this issue already as your Who Viewed button is different from the others.

After migrating to 209E some of my guys had problems with the themes formatting correctly on their monitors.
After some hits and misses it seems that a majority have had success with the SimpleBlackV2 theme which I see you have available on your site. So, now, in my eyes you become the expert. ;)

Here's my issue.  When viewing forum posts, there are 4 options (Post, Reply, Print, Who Viewed) at the beginning of each post. The first 3 images display fine, but the Who Viewed is broken and displays the alternate text. I checked the folder(SimpleBlackV2/forums/images/lang_english) and was missing the icon_viewed.gif file.  I snatched that from your site but had no luck.

After digging around, I found reference in the viewtopic_body.tpl file.

       <TOPIC><a><img></a><TOPIC>

What I can't seem to find is where {WHOVIEW_IMG} gets defined.  {U_WHOVIEW_TOPIC} is defined properly and establishes the correct link.

Where do I go to determine why {WHOVIEW_IMG} is not getting defined?

Thanks, Corpse.  I was able to find the link.  Had to select the text to get it to show up.  DUH!

Great effect! Wish I could download it.  Did the download feature go away with the forum updates?
