Folks,

Err...sorry guys.  We haven't actually gone down yet.  Unfortunately, work has become super busy this week and once I have gotten home, I have been too fragged to think properly to do the IT stuff that is necessary.  Sorry.

I am doing some checking now on what exactly needs to be done - I wanted to be doubly sure so as to ensure all proceeds smoothly.

Ok folks,

I did the changes last night (my time).  There may be a few tweaks in the coming day or so, so please be patient if there are any glitches ( that's what you get when an IT challenged person is put at the steering wheel ;)).

Hopefully these changes will reduce some of the problems we have been experiencing the last few weeks.

If anyone had any major problems please let us know.

Greg

Well done Greg! Just in signing in, I'm already noticing how much faster pages are loading!

BTW: I'm of the opinion that we're all IT challenged. Some of us know it, others live with their delusions  ;)

[Ed: Greg, just noticed one of those glitches pop up. Suddenly the attachments aren't showing and when you click on the 'paperclip' you just get "404 - Attachment Not Found".]

Hi Evan,
currently no one can see any of the attachments or uploaded avatars.
The server switch-over seems to have caused the path to the folder to become
invalid, we are looking for a solution.

Inter alia, this is a perfect example of why off-site hosting through Photobucket,
personal web-page etc., is preferable, as no matter what technical glitches hit the forum,
off-site files will always be unaffected.

Also the more hosted, uploaded attachments, the larger the forum server space becomes
which can create a higher maintenance workload and definitely increase the time required
for file backup and restoration in case of melt-down.

Now that said, we intend to always leave the attachment function available, however we
do encourage folks to explore off-site, personal folder hosting for their own peace of mind.
 
Regards,
Jon

Sorry folks.  I have been at work all day and not able to do anything re this - I only have a few minutes right now so won't be able to solve things just yet.  As I said above, please be patient as we work through these glitches.  At the end of the day a couple of hours or even a day without some attached images will be a minor 'blip' in the long run.  Be thankful - my real worry was that after doing the changes, the forum would vanish altogether! ;).

Folks,

I am sure some of you had a minor panic attack a little while ago when the forum first disappeared and then reappeared all odd looking before getting back to normal (well improved actually).  I can assure you that this is nothing compared to the Major Panic I was experiencing. :-[

We were doing some changes in the background (final bits of the previously mentioned changes) and things went off the rails a bit. :o

We're all back now and there is only one man to thank:

Jon (aka jcf).  Please join me in thanking him for his efforts! :)

Greg

I've been looking into it on the SMF support forum, and it appears that we'll
have to dive into the forum code and, in IT weasel speak, 'chmod line XXX on
template blah-blah to change value M to =yada yada'
 :-\

I'm not awake enough at the moment to face that dragon, however, it appears that
a 'temporary' user work around is to regularly clear cache and to load the forum cookie
anew at each session. Evidently an individual user's browser settings can also affect
the session time routine, of course after making that statement none of them
mention what those settings may be.
 :-\

Sorry for the inconvenience folks and I'll attempt to address the issue ASAP.

I've been doing that too, but then the attachments disappear and have to be reloaded.  If you're only posting one or maybe two pics then it will upload, but attaching three or four it doesn't seem to like it and 'times out' again.
