  • The last two days we are experiencing a lot more internal server errors, especially on the front page. This appears to be related to database and server issues. We've had a professional looking into it, but there isn't a timetable to fix it as they're currently troubleshooting what is causing the problems. I would hope that by the end of the week we have resumed some or all of these issues.

      Good to know I'm not the only one.. Keep up the good work Mods.

            I have had zero issues with the search tool when I use it. Anyone else who is having issues?

            • The front page logout issue should be fixed, the site should also be (slightly) more stable with (slightly) fewer long load times. We'll keep debugging it and keep you posted.

                I was having issues previously but just spent a few minutes utilizing it and it worked great.

                • Someone had mentioned increasing the number of posts per page, and I figured out how to change that (sorry if it was resolved already).

                  1. Hit the dropdown at the top of the page under you username
                  2. Go to 'User Settings'
                  3. Go to the 'Account' tab
                  4. Find 'Conversation Detail Options' --> 'Posts Per Page'
                  5. Change it to '30 posts per page' if you like to do less page-turning

                  It will NOT allow you to save '40 posts per page' for some reason. Perhaps our theme or version of vBulletin can't handle it or doesn't allow it for some reason. But 30 per page is better than 15, imo

                    Thanks for the info. I had tried 40 and it didn't work. I didn't bother checking the others.

                      • Hey Everyone,

                        Some more database configurations and updates were made. The front page might still be a little slow to load, but should be faster than it has been. Moving around the site should be back to normal. Nobody should be getting randomly logged out at this point. The site might not be totally free of internal server errors or bugs, but it should be nothing close to what it has been over the past week. We're going to keep making fixes over the next couple weeks, and then will lay out a roadmap for the added features and site improvements.

                        • Site has been running smoothly today. Thanks Lax and team for the continued updates.

                            • Seems pretty normal for me in the speed of upload. Moving right along. Look forward to the continued improvements. Great work.

                                I'm noticing improvements. Slow and steady wins the race.

                                        For some reason, it will auto-fill your email or password line when you try to save the settings for post count. It’s like the page script populates one of those fields automatically whenever you try to save new user settings. I had that issue last week. Just make sure you clear the field when you try to save the settings.

                                          Figured it out.

                                          I hit "Save" without noticing the auto-filled email field.
                                          Tried to remove, and save again - couldn't get it to work - still (even when blank)
                                          I killed my session, opened a new tab, tried again (removing the auto-fill) before hitting save - #worked

                                          Love troubleshooting, sometimes.

                                            I use dark reader chrome extension for (almost) all webpages out there. I just flipped it off to see what the new IE looks like without it (not great). Strongly encourage chrome users to give it a shot if not already using.

                                                It's kind of annoying but with vBulletin5 you have to hit quote on the posts you want to quote, click "Post Reply" (it's in the page and search bar that moves with your screen as you scroll through the thread) at the top of the page, and it will put both quotes in your post for you.

I used the "image" function from the comment toolbar, then selected the "upload " tab and put in the file location from my desktop. I got an error message stating I didn't have permission. Is this supposed to work or is it restricted on purpose?

I just flipped it off to see what the new IE looks like without it (not great). Strongly encourage chrome users to give it a shot if not already using.

                                                                                                    The server itself might be playing a role, but right now what's happening is that there is something wrong with the database that is causing the server to basically get caught in a loop or otherwise inundated with calls to the point where it can't process all of them. Could be some of the plug ins and changes we started making after the site was stable for a week. At this point all we know is that the database keeps having the same two errors where it times out.

                                                                                                    We're going to go beyond the guy we hired to make the initial site changes and hire a database expert to investigate and fix the problem.
