I appreciate your help too, JayBachatero.  The process turned out to be SO easy with your guidance. 
 
It turns out only my "Themes/default" folder contained a script.js file.  My site is still under development and not yet accessible to the public.  I currently have about nine themes in place for my intended viewers to choose from.  All of those themes come from Bloc and none apparently use a script.js file.  So I only had to clear my own Firefox cache after replacing the previous "Themes/default/script.js" file.

Thanks again for the support.   :D
Cheerily Yours,
Tim O'Laguna

I don't think these two things are related.  Start a new topic with the link to status.php and more details on this issue.  Also PM me the link afterwards so that I can see it.

Would this cause this error message:

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

JayBachatero

Not it shouldn't.  You MySQL database went down or a corrupted Settings.php.  Did you change any settings on the 'Server Settings" page?

Open Settings.php and verify that all the information is correct there.

Hi All,

Mine says:

$settings['default_theme_url'], '/script.js?rc2p"

Do I need to change this or is it okay?

Thanks,
Darren

Does this bug manifest itself by creating tons of sess_* and ruby_sess* files in /tmp ?

I didn't do the fix right away on a testsite as I was the only user - but I think even one user can hammer a server without the fix - correct?

Thanks

PS - the reason I ask is that if both of the above aren't true - I have other server issues ...

Not very likely (that is, it shouldn't create more sessions, just keep the current one alive too many times).

Yep, though the server would probably only start to slow down when it's already under stress.

Has anyone seen what the error message this bug produces or what symptoms?  Slowness, 500 Internet Server Error, etc?

I replaced the file anyway just in case.

Even though I upgraded from SMF 1.0.5 to RC2 just about a week ago, the script file is different that what came with the RC2 download package.  The file sizes are different. 

SMF 2.0
TP 1.0 RC1.1
Wordpress 3.1.3

goodgameral

well yeah they're diff sizes. You're not totally deleting one to put in another, youre simply replacing other  files and adding other ones.

Anyway, whats the point with using JavaScript so much ?

SMF should have all standard themes without any JavaScript and only JavaScript in "media fx" enhanced themes, there is no need for using JavaScript for only the functionality or good design, this is more an effect and multimedia design which is not what World-Wide Web is made for in the first case. Make SMF faster and with less possibilities to bugs, remove JavaScript and it will work and only use it in enhanced themes.

The total loadsize for pages would also be much smaller without JavaScript. See how big for example the standard theme which viewing the mainpage which shows all forums and subforums. A page shall normally never be more than 50-70 Kb including images. There is a lot of people on the net on bad backbones, isp:s and old modems, not so unusual as many thinks.
Always keep an eye on the latest from me at ...
