    Default Forum upgrade and support

    Hi there

    We're going to be completing an update of the forum software and various plugins tomorrow night from 7:30pm EST. I expect it to take approx. 2 hrs to complete.

    If you notice something not working as expected, please post in this thread.

    Thanks guys
    Steve

    Not sure if it is to do with the upgrade or not but I have been trying to post a photo all day but nothing happens when I click on "Manage Attachments"

    Hey Doug

    I haven't run the software update yet. Can we re-visit this once it's been run?

    cheers

    Hi there

    I'm going to have to back out of doing this tonight, a slow connection to the servers has meant preparing has taken too long. Will re-attempt tomorrow night.

    Sorry!

    Yeah I guess that will be ok.

    Not being able to post photos is a bit of a bummer but it is what it is.

    The frustrating thing was getting back that ability for about five minutes then it vanished again as mysteriously as it did the first time.

    good luck with the update.

    About that slow server connection.... Is the update likely to improve response times or have the hamsters who power it unionised and taken up strike action over pay and conditions?

    The hamsters have been made redundant - they were not NBN compatible

    Lets hope that slow connection has a bit more getup 'n' go this time.

    Hi Steven,

    Just updating my situation for the purposes of "revisiting" after the update.

    I have managed to stop my computer automatically trying to use HTTPS protocol when I load the page, which was a feat in itself - I never tried to get it to do that in the first place but anyway ...

    So now I can post pictures and smilies etc like I was able to do in HTTPS for ages. But now I need to log into the forum every time I leave the page idle for a short time, which I have not had to do before.

    Good luck with the update.

    Just updated all my sites using CloudFlare and their FREE HTTPS system.

    Better still, it is now caching 50% of all of my traffic. In less than 6 hours Ive saved hundreds of megs, plus a free TLS cert to-boot!

    All it took was a DNS change and a few clicks of buttons.

    It offers an absolute train load of top-shelf features.
