Re: Where did you surf today ?

wishing the rain would let up enough to see the beach... okay... no notifications received from updates since my last post (sorry I have to test this way, but I need a real live thread).

Re: Where did you surf today ?

wandered all over the landscape looking, but nothing tempting. Just too messy and all over the place.

(Have made a mod to posting system to see if I can get post notifications working. Changed a value from 50 to 0 in admin area... it's a long shot... now, if only someone will post to this thread...)

Re: ATTENTION ADMIN - AVATARS??

Hello all I haven't touched any settings to do with avatars since moving to the new forum script (which is an update on the old, no longer supported one). It is often difficult to track down intermittent problems like this. I can see avatars, so I just assumed I was seeing all avatars. Since there i...

Re: Slow forums and other weirdness

sorry to annoy you all with the changes, but the previous forum script had become way too vulnerable to hackers and spammers. I had to change it. I will do my best to work through the issues you're having. I was able to upload a picture of under 90kb and the correct size from my computer without any...

Classifieds beta: Please check and comment

Hi all I've set up a very bare bones classifieds section for RealSurf. You'll find it here: http://www.realsurf.com/?page_id=3098&_action=classified Any thoughts will be appreciated this end. For instance, are there any categories that should be added? Does the design render okay in your browser? Is...

Re: Slow forums and other weirdness

Hi all, Fixed that placeholder page. It was late and I forgot I'd left that in place. re: request to get links to go to first post rather than latest post, I'm not sure how to do this in a way that still lets the user choose which option suits them. If any of you have come across a site that does th...

Re: Slow forums and other weirdness

Interesting that the new post page pops right up, but the regular post page takes 32 seconds for me... so, clearly not the ad code stuffing things up then. We did the database thing and found and blocked a suspicious IP address, but otherwise our efforts seem to have produced not much. Well, apart f...

Re: Slow forums and other weirdness

Thanks for that info Trev. Leading suspect at this moment is a database issue of some sort. I tried clearing out a cache, but if it had any effect it seems to be pretty slight. I'm currently getting 25 sec delays when I go to a new page. Once I've visited a page, it pops up quickly from my browser c...

Re: Slow forums and other weirdness

So far no luck fixing things. Been trying stuff too. Thanks for the amusing remarks one and all, but particular thanks to dUg for the suggestions. Sorry to make a hash of things... this is top of my fixit list now. As for layout, I basically looked at how others were laying out forums with ads. I'll...

Slow forums and other weirdness

Hi all I've been trying to figure out why our forums are running so incredibly slowly, but to date I have not found any obvious issue. I've tried upping the server resources and that doesn't seem to have changed anything. I've tried decreasing the pic size, but I seem mostly to have just cut Butts's...

Re: IS REALSURF LOCKING UP YOUR COMPUTER?

Hi All Bummed to hear of this problem. Since I haven't experienced when accessing with Firefox 3, IE7, Safari, and Google Chrome (all from Windows XP box), I had no idea it was going on. The next time any of you get lock up or browser hang, it would really help me if you could let me know a) the thr...

Don just testing a post here! Canon G10 is a very nice piece of kit by the way. If I was going to get a new point and shoot, it'd be that one.

Hi all MONDAY: Okay, we seem to have survived the update process... so far! SUNDAY: Don here with a head's up re the forums. I'm planning to do a major upgrade to the script that makes these possible. At a minimum it will take several hours to transfer the data. (our number one goal is not to lose a...
