Please report any forum bugs here - looks like it going to be quite a list!

1) Emoticons not working correctly (Sally) - Should be fixed in next version
2) Can't split topic (Moderator)
3) Screen looks a bit squashed in category view (when you can see the new indicator).
4) New! indicator hard to read (I've fixed that, but I'm still putting it down!)
5) Multi Lurch is at large (Lurch, Lurch and Lurch) - Should be fixed in next version
6) Trying to moderate breaks everything! (Teratyke)
7) Avatar upload fails with images over 1MB (suerose)
8) Sometimes clicking 'latest member', breaks the page (Teratyke)
9) When not logged in forum still shows as online (AtticusRox)
10) Long words break latest posts module on front page (Teratyke)

Rob, just lately I've been experiencing some very long waits for pages to display. It's not my connection as other sites are fast if I open a new tab. I've also had quite a lot of error messages:

1. "remote server rejected connetion as you must be logged in to view this page" or something quite similar. This was when I was just going to the Home page.

2. I've also had the message "Cannot connect to MySQL.

Hi Everyone -I am aware of problems with the site, but thanks for confirming. I also experience long page loading times. I'm looking into this with my host. The problem is though that shared server hosting (as this site is on) is relatively cheap, but capacity is limited - essentially we are sharing a server with hundreds (possibly) of other websites and they all impact on each other.

It does seem to have got considerably worse in the last couple of months, although its very hard quantify without some sort of baseline - which I don't have. Could it be linked to the chat component? That's about the only new thing in the last few months.

I've got a few options that I need to explore and one or two things I can try to speed things up. The reality may well be though that the site is now just so busy (60,000+ page views a month) that the site has out grown the hosting.

Watch this space (but don't refresh the page too often!!! :woohoo: )

I've been working on the site this evening and I've been tweaking the caching on certain components and modules. This should speed the site up, although the cache life-time is only five minutes you may notice a delay when page content changes. Hard to explain and I' not sure what sort of problems might manifest - I've tested what I can, but please post here if you notice the site to be any quicker, or if you notice new problems. Good news is especially welcome - It seems quicker to me, but it could just be quieter at the moment....

Rob, in case you haven't noticed. Sometimes when a post is made it overflows from the top of it's table on the left side of the home screen right across the page pushing the centre column down.

It just happened with the "Re:Another Hello from Germany " posting and cleared after I posted a reply.

Ignore the above, I've just seen that you know what causes it.

Hi Rob. Hope you are doing well.
It happens if there are " quotes in the title of a post. The module for the front page doesn't escape them out properly (its on the list!!) I just removed the quotes from that post.
Thanks for noticing though!

We're a fair distance from the exchange as well - 512k's about as fast as it gets. Photographs take ages, but the rest of the site's fine.

its been tested at just over 10 meg and everyother site is fine its just this one.Im also getting a warning that my username/password are wrong or that i havent registered yet when i log in but it still logs me in.

I just tested it and it took nearly 40 seconds from pressing enter to actually logging in and it took about the same to open this topic. I have tried deleting history/cookies and no change and like i said every other site works perfectly

Robb replied the topic: Re:NEW Forum Bugs
I've got a reasonably fast connection (4MB) and often have problems. There are 3 main problems that I get:

1. Surver does not respond, browser times out.

2. Often on logging in I get an "Invalid Token" message.

3. Often I get "Server Error" message.

I'm sure these errors are down to the server being too busy rather than our connections. The web site (and others running on the same server) is a victim of it's own success.
