sinking is broken

Hello!

I recently upgraded to 1.1.2, and just tried to sink a discussion. I clicked the "sink this discussion link," the little green thingy spun around, and the page reloaded....

...and absolutely nothing else happened.

any ideas?

    I think that is normal. Go back to your discussion list and see what happened there.

    thats because nothing else i supposed to happen
    Sinking the discussion makes it not do anything. thats the whole idea of it.
    when u post a comment to a discussion, it floats to the top. sinking it will stop it from floating.

    no, i mean its not doing anything in the sense that [sink] isnt added to the dicussion title, the link doesnt change from sink this discussion to unsink this discusison, and most importantly, it pops back up when new comments are added.

    That's weird, it works just fine for me. What about Sticky and Close, do those work for you?

    Oh, I just thought of one thing, have you upgraded your language file as well? Because in the new version Sink, Sticky etc are part of the dictionary, and missing entries might do something.

    Havent tried stick/closing a thread, havent needed to. ill test it out after work.

    It doesn't work for me either but I'm using Safari and it appears to be the same same bug as I found with deleting comments and attachments where the javascript is expecting an event firing off when the page is reloaded. For some reason it doesn't reload in Safari so the event never happens so the green throbber never changes.

    If I manually reload the page, then 'Sink' changes to 'Unsink' then.

    for me the page reloads but there is no change.

    I have the same problem.

    When I Sink, Close, Bookmark, etc. The little green progress thing indicates that it is doing something, but NOTHING at all happens. I also don't get the little [CLOSED], [BOOKMARKED] captions next to the title as well.

    I only just upgraded to the latest version yesterday and that is when the problems started.

    These settings have been moved to the language file...

    // Moved from settings.php
    $Context->Dictionary['TextWhispered'] = 'Private';
    $Context->Dictionary['TextSticky'] = 'Sticky';
    $Context->Dictionary['TextClosed'] = 'Closed';
    $Context->Dictionary['TextHidden'] = 'Deleted';
    ...etc...

    Copy them from the new version into your language definitions.

    I added them to my conf/language.php file and I still get nothing.

    Also, all of the previously sunk, closed or bookmarked discussions appear and behave correctly. I think it is a JS issue as the changes are not actually being saved/initiated.

    update. Now that I have had a chance to do some more tests, I can neither sink, close, or delete threads. I can also not enable or disable existing extensions, nor can I delete individual posts. I believe these are ALL related to a similar bug, which has arisen since I upgraded to 1.1.2. I could really use some assistance with this.

    Make sure you uploaded the new javascript files for Vanilla 1.1.2 and then make sure that you haven't got the old ones cached in your browser. They have changed in this version and if you are using an older cached version, it would cause those buttons to break.
