Bug in function "Show Signature"
« on: June 18, 2017, 01:22:21 AM »
When using the "Show Signature"-checkbox there is the following bug:

When switching off this function for *an existing post* the signature is not deactivated, i.e. still shows up.

Can this be repaired please?

Are you referring to a mod? I don't know what option you're referring to otherwise.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

I assume that he actually means "Don't show users' signatures." in each user's personal look & layout settings section of the profile

However... like most of the reports form this user - it would appear to be related to a badly installed (or uninstalled) mod - since I can not recreate it on this site nor on several other sites running 2.0.14
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Or more likely a conflict between "signature option" and "signature once per page" mods.

I am talking about this function (right hand side)


If I edit AN EXISTING POST and switch the checkbox off,
then the signature is still shown.

I know of no conflict between "signature option" and "signature once per page" mods.

Thank you for pointing me into that direction.

I just looked through my installed most, it is most likely
"Signature Option Post    1.1.1"

Ok, thank you, I found it.

I will ask this in the "Signature Option" thread.

Well, it appears I MYSELF had already posted there: https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=103897.msg3893760#msg3893760
but I have not gotten any reply since well half a year.

Pity.
