N4G Submission Error Fix Found

YourEMGN Writes: "N4G has been having a few issues with article submission and I (Madusha) found a simple fix. The problem seems to be with the duplicate story checker. The simple fix is to change the story title to something that would be impossible to be found as dupe by the system."


Looks like the problem has been fixed ;)

This works 100% as you can see. Found it by mistake as I was testing to see if it was working and used the title "AAAA TEST". This tricked the dupe system and it worked :D

Use this until the admins get it working.

EDIT: Unfortunately, images can not be updated once the article is submitted, it gives the error.

EDIT 2: Confirmed to be working, stories are appearing with random titles in the pending section.

Gimme some kudos! ;)

You have exposed a massive glitch.Expect my cohorts to abuse it XD

Madusha3300d ago (Edited 3300d ago )

Lol, not really a glitch, a fix :D

Awesome job man, kudos to you. And it does work everyone.

Madusha3300d ago

Thanks mate, confirmed it works as new stories with random titles are appearing XD

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to discover this. Many people have and don't create bogus articles about it. This is nothing new.

You've been here a long time and that's why you know of this fix. However, me and most other members were completely lost when encountering this error.

Madusha is simply trying to keep n4g running, it would have been better to use a blog post but that wouldn't grab any attention and the front page would still be dead.

"This is nothing new" to you and other N4G old boys but it certainly is something new to the majority of contributors considering the front page and all section pages did not have any new content in days due to this error. With this fix we are seeing fresh new content.

FINALLY thank you Madusha.

Myst3300d ago

So there was an error in the system? That's why the pending section was barren? Here I was thinking that it finally happened, the gaming media had run out of things to write.

Well Kudos to you Madusha for finding out the bug.

Madusha3300d ago

lol, been a bad news week but no, I don't think that would ever happen.

My first thought was "oh no, n4g is doomed".
