Re: Notes about the new site

Thanks for the heads up. It's probably something to do with the default folder redirect when the forum was upgraded. All the files are still there but only work with direct link. I have used an index file as a temporary measure. Files also given below: theoptom.com/resources/GOS18HES_and_GPPROFORMA....

Re: Missing posts

If someone else has posted in the time I've been writing/got distracted and come back to it - when I press 'submit' it reloads the page with the new post showing and you have to submit again, not caused me a problem and seems to make sense in case you need to alter your post. That has been my exper...

I think it happens when you post at the same time on the same thread as someone else.
You mean using two accounts at the same time? More than one username is not allowed unless with valid reason and prior permission from admin.

Re: planned server migration

And we're back. Looking at the new server specs it seems this one is more powerful, so should be faster. Let me know if anyone notices any problems, thanks.

planned server migration

The host has advised that the current server needs significant maintenance so it is best to migrate to another server.

So the site will be down from 11pm Tuesday 16th Jan 2018. Probably for 24 hours, but could be upto 48hrs.

My uploaded stuff seems have disappeared :cry:
Do you have a link to a picture you uploaded (then pasted in a thread for example)? Just curious to see what comes up when it's clicked.

Re: Email notification

I just can't deal with this new format. I can't see posts since I last visited, i dunno where I am on here. I'm sure quite a few feel/felt like that. Thing is, a lot of people don't seem to have read the upgrade notification email/post that contains this info. I only posted it on twitter/facebook, ...

Re: Missing posts

If it only happened with some posts and not others then it more likely to be a forum software glitch. I'll look into it.

I will be reviewing the suggestions in a few weeks, then discussing it with the programmer. Won't be done until Jan at the earliest.

Re: Deleting a post

No, that's new and it's a default setting, but AFAIK you can leave it blank, or is that not the case?

Re: help on how to use the forum

You might need to clear your cookies/cache then visit this site again, or remove it from RoboForm perhaps. I assume when you then visit the site afresh and input your info RoboForm will then ask you what you want to do as if you were visiting the site for the first time, e.g. autocomplete etc.
