Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

I'll see if I can duplicate the issue anyway!

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Hi Chris

Since the move to the new server there has been a change in the forum behaviour that I am experiencing. I don't know if it is affecting others. When I use the "New Posts" button everything works as before and I see a list of new posts and others which I have not changed since my last visit but still contain unread posts.

When I go to one of these threads and read it and then return to the "New Posts" page using the back arrow, the old server would then take the thread heading from bold to plain type to show it had been read. The new server is not doing this.

Cheers

Tim

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Howdy Tim,

What if you don't use the back arrow, but instead click the New Post link again?

I can make this easier by duplicating that row of links that contains "New Posts" down here at the bottom of the page... will get to work on that.

Edit: Okay, so now there's a "New Posts" link at the bottom of every page (including this page); it's in the center of the page in between the previous post and next post links, just below "You are here" the breadcrumb nav and above one of the medium rectangle banner ads... that should save you from having to scroll back up to the top for New Posts.

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

My computer had a catastrophic stasis epilepsis episode about two years ago and I reset the clock wrong. After re-installing stuff I discovered the error. I elected not to change it and go through the torment of again reinstalling and re-registering softwares which will slap you every which way to heaven or hell for very little reason other than they can.

So Chris. It is all my fault. My computer clock is set to a different time and date and the collective of the rest of the world's computery thinks itself and the atomic reference clocks to be wrong.

Whatever, the three clicks back after re-logging in when a longwinded forum response being composed times out, to bring up the text again for posting, still works.

Site wrangling has to be right up there with a whole host of minor miracles that I cannot comprehend which demand respect.

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Hi Chris

If I click "New Posts" again, it will refresh the links and the one I have visited will disappear. I use the back arrow so I see which of all the overnight posts I have visited. Sometimes after visiting all the threads which interest me, I will then go back into a visited thread and post a reply. It is for that reason I liked the previous format of the change from bold to plain text.

It is not a big deal, I can live without it.

Cheers

Tim

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Have seen it twice occurring, one time on a post I did where my answer to a new post appeared before the first post, see here: http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/sony-nxc...ewel-seas.html

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

The only thing that I found a few days ago was a thread with just one reply and after posting my response my post appeared above the previous post so I was "moved" into 2nd place instead of "third" ... I just figured that maybe the first replier had edited his post so it then appeared after me.

Not really an issue at all though!

Chris

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

It would be nice if the old dvinfo.net/conf redirected automagically to the new improved dvinfo.net/forum so I can remain blissfully lazy and not have to change my bookmarks on every last unsynced device in my iOS world.

Can't get onto DVInf forum home page

Sorry, this seems to be the nearest I can get to the home page. I'm just getting what looks like HTML when I attempt to open the forum's home page, quickly followed by "page not found". I don't know if it's just me or a more general issue. It's been like this for the last couple of days.

Seems to be a Firefox thing, since I've got on with I.E.

Re: Can't get onto DVInf forum home page

Happend to me a few times yesterday evening. (Was using an android phone).
When trying to access the home page of the forum, all I got was a bunch of code lines.

Today all is good again.

If the problem persists clear your cache and cookies since something was being retained from the prior episode.

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Chris, for some reason my classifieds post http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/private-...b-sd-card.html
shows it's images as links rather than thumbnails. Is there a way for me to fix this? The edit time limit has passed.

Thanks, Jeff
