Users Online oddities - FIXED perhaps
Context of comment:All
You may see some weird "users" in the Users Online list.
There is an error here that's being researched prior to correction (hopefully).
admin@mountainviews.ie
Message:A fix for this apparent error has been applied. Please let admin@mountainviews.ie know of any unforeseen side-effects.
Additional points:Postscript. This was a curious and odd fault. It has usually proved worth investigating such odd errors (instead of just covering them up) because they are often pointers to some deeper malaise.
In this case and after hours of investigation it turned out that the most probable cause is search engines attempting to access an ajax .php file. The urls of the accessing hosts were all Google or Bing bots. Through MV usage tracking such accesses lead to insertion of a bogus record into MV's recent user list. If you are experienced with search engines you will be surprised to know that it appears that search engines can crawl addresses that only appear as literals in javascript. By crawling this the search engine caused problems for the website. The ajax modules now return a 401 error code and do not alter the MV recent user list. In the meanwhile various other nasty errors were found and corrected.
I can guarantee any developer assisting MV that you will emerge with some penetrating insights into modern web practice.

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 6 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
