MMO Fashion – Broken CGVIEW Code / 404 Errors

Current as of: 17 Jul 19

The latest theme update permanently broke the plugin I’ve been using to display post thumbnails. Technically the plugin works, but it breaks everything for mobile among other issues. I’ve turned it off for every site. Please bear with me as I slowly work through replacing the code on every post/page. Let me know if you see any broken code on pages not listed below. NOTE: I had to break apart a lot of pages. You may see 404 errors with old pages. Use the menu!

Need to Finish:

  • ArcheAge Fashion – complete
  • BDO Fashion – complete
  • BNS Fashion – Lynblade-Sword Similarity section on weapon posts
  • Destiny 2 Fashion – complete
  • ESO Fashion – complete
  • ESO Motifs – complete (code not used on site)
  • FO76 Fashion – complete (code not used on site)
  • GW2 Fashion – complete
  • MMO Fashion – complete (code not used on site)
  • TOR Decorating – Similarity section on posts and individual Prolific Poster posts
  • TOR Fashion -Similarity pages, Similarity section on posts, and individual Prolific Poster posts

Until I get the Similarity sections complete, you can click on the 4-5 letter code (ie. BP06) in the categories at a top of the post to see the similar items.

I had to delete the Filter plugin. It was another one that hadn’t been updated in forever. It’s dangerous for the sites to leave plugins like that on there because someone could more easily hack into the site through them and it would no longer display more than 52 items. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find another plugin to replace it because everyone assumes you would set up a site with customized posts and taxonomies. I didn’t do this until recently. It would be time consuming and would break things even worse for an extended period of time for me to change this. In the mean time, if you know the category slug, you can search for multiple categories by typing https://”sitename”.mmo-fasion.com/category/”slug”+”slug”. For instance, on TOR Fashion, if you want to see all Togruta Female characters, you would type: https://torf.mmo-fashion.com/category/togruta+female. For slugs with more than one word, you would need to use dashes (-) between the words, ie. https://torf.mmo-fashion.com/category/sith-pure-blood+male. You can use as many categories as you want by adding additional + signs and slugs. Just be aware that the more you add, the greater likelihood you will eventually add too many and it won’t return anything.

Unfortunately, the slug is not always the same thing as the category name because I often use the same category name more than once. You can see category names at the top of a post. If you click on the category name, it will take you to a page that shows every post with that category name and will give you the slug in the URL. You don’t need to type in the extra words between “category” and the slug name. Those just place the categories into sections to make it easier for me to find things. For instance, on the post:

Nocxis – Darth Malgus

If you click Sith Inquisitor at the top (the small blue links under the title), you will see the URL: https://torf.mmo-fashion.com/category/customized/characters/class/si/. The slug will be the last “word,” which is “si.” There can be a lot of trial and error to find the correct slug names. Please let me know if you just can’t figure one out and I’ll look it up for you.

NOTE: I’m not a website developer. I am a gamer who takes in-game screenshots and uses tools other people have developed to share them with others. Often an update for one tool breaks another and I have to find a workaround. This can take some time, especially since I don’t really know what I’m doing. It’s all trial and error.

The sites  make just enough money to cover the server fees, website tools, and in-game currency required to purchase all these items. I can’t afford to hire someone to fix issues when they pop up. Please be patient with me. I know it sucks when something you are accustomed to using stops working properly. There are no needs for insults. Insulting me makes me less and less enthusiastic to even bother working on the sites at all.

For those of you that have asked about the issues and been really polite, thank you very much. You’re the reason I’m willing to manually update tens of thousands of code.
