Admin menu disappearing

And this is quite a nice one if I can say so myself.

Okay, so I have no idea what kind of permissions we have set up here on my account, so we start with uncertainty already.
I think it is a moderator with permission to change permissions?
Anyway, normally I have the admin button visible with "Administration Center", "Permissions" and "Moderate" visible.

If I start in quick reply and hit preview, when I end up in the post page, the "admin" menu disappears. :grimacing:

There are some odd issues and I think they are all related to the User:: change that was made.

For example, after making a post, the upper menu does not show your profile and I think some other things, as if it did not reload permissions so reverts to guest level, at least until you refresh.   I've not been able to track that one done, but it sounds similar to what you are saying.

For example I hit preview, now there is no profile button above, but there are other top menu items are there.

If you can determine where that is happening, it would be :cool: :sparkles::fireworks:

hmm... that is interesting.
I'll try to have a look, I was expecting to have weird side-effects from this change because the thing was so intricate that looked like a pile of... mess. :D
TBH I'm kind of surprised this is just it. :o

Well... to look into this I started installing on windows and... createDirectory is broken because it loses the drive part of the path and everything goes down the drain...:sob:

heh

You have no idea how painful it is to move from a system with 4TB of space to one with 1.:laughing:
And... I'm having troubles with this darn dual screen configuration and the fact that I can't get it to read the temperature of the CPU or the GPU... :-\

Anyway right now I have only to migrate the database... wait a moment, why the heck should I move the development stuff to the new system, I'll just keep it where it is now and mount it as a network thingy!:tada:

:rofl:.... Conformists :tongue: Specifically meant run/install the software on IIS, but I guess it could be a LAMP stack that was not using windows Linux subsystem, you know the things you have to do when you don't have a real OS !

My dev system is only 1/2 TB, but I do have 8TB network mounted storage / docker containers, that is where all the data lives.  Going that route  makes swapping computers a lot easier.  I wish I had a nice GPU but I'm in the stone age when it comes to graphics, no way to mine for bitcoin !

That's somehow where I'd like to go too, yeah.
The annoying thing is I wanted to use my old pc as server, but it consumes about 90W of power just to stay on... :-\

That is a bit, mine pulls 35W-40W in "idle", but can get up to ~150W when under a heavy load, which is almost never.  It lacks any GPU, and has a old Xeon processor, basic raid controller,  mostly a NAS with fast I/O so does what I need it to do.

Okay, I couldn't reproduce it locally, so either is linked to some particular odd permission or it has been fixed.

Strange, it still does it on my local. 

Start a new topic, save, and then when I'm returned to the display page, admin and profile buttons are missing.:construction:

Looking again, my admin button changes to moderate, and my profile button disappears

Weird.
At that point I ave the suspect it may be some kind of difference due to how windows and linux deal with something...
