Unwanted cookie notice?

I don't blame you for being suspicious! The regulations are an attempt to protect you from the unscrupulous elements online. I don't know how much difference they're going to make because the evil b@$&@|s out there will always find a way past them. And the flak always lands on us who are trying to b...

Unwanted cookie notice?

You may also notice that there is a new box on the Homepage and a new link under Club Documents referring to the Club's Data Protection and Privacy Policy. This is due to new regulations coming into force in May.

I googled the error message verbatim and got lost in coders talk on the PHP forum :?
I'm not surprised! There seem to be a few possible causes of it, totally unrelated to the RSS Smartfeed. I'm still looking but difficult to diagnose if I can't reproduce it. :oops: :( :w

Photobucket

I've been hearing that Photo***** has plugged this hole and that the published fixes, and the one I've applied here, are no longer working. Can anyone confirm this?

My RSS Feed

I'm sorry Tony, I just can't see what is going wrong. For me it generates and tests ok and works in the Feedly newsreader app. This has been ok for me since I updated the feed software to the latest version.

Smartfeed Issues

That same message appeared when I tested it this morning. I've just updated the Smartfeed software to the latest recently released version and it seems to generate and test OK. Hope it's solved now.

I'm applying some more suggested tweaks, others appear to have mixed results with them, but have no way to test the effectiveness of them. If anyone who routinely has the problem notices any differences in behaviour over the next few days please let me know here.

it seems to be a Windows/iOS conflict. Close, from what I've been reading. It seems that most people blame Apple because they have implemented the orientation part of the EXIF data in the image differently to others. But I don't think it's just an Apple problem though. There's enough of an issue th...
