Server maintenance today
« on: September 13, 2009, 01:07:35 PM »
As Sundays are a quieter period, I will be doing some server maintenance later today at approximately 4pm, to correct some issues leftover from the server move. The forum will need to be put into maintenance mode as I anticipate some scripts to stop functioning while I correct the problems. If all goes smoothly and quickly, I will also change the gallery software and import the old gallery. Thank you for your patience. :)

We appear to be back, after a reboot and some grinding of gears.

Hi Leah - Thanks for all your work on everything.  Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but I'm seeing a lot of posts (that were there before) - it's just blank now, with only the user's name & that's all.  Maybe it's just me?  But it's kind of random - some posts are there (as normal) and I'm talking about stuff that was there on Friday, and then some just aren't there (blank).

This thread is one example:

http://talk.uk-yankee.com/index.php?topic=56977.0

Can't see springhaze's or Mops' posts - only their usernames & that's it.  Otherwise, blank.

Ok, the posts are still in the database and not gone, but I'm not sure why they aren't showing up. I'm investigating, thanks for reporting the problem. :)

No worries & it's not just that thread - same thing on at least 2-3 other threads, sporadically blank posts, that I've seen.

Yes I noticed that too, something I posted yesterday is just a blank space now. Weird.

I'm just throwing this out there as the SMF site says it may be an issue with the smiley thing...

Leah, I have just spotted your "News: Forum maintenance today from 4pm, see Announcement" message, and clicked it to find out more, and have been brought to this topic.

But by "today" I think you meant last Sunday, so time to remove that message from sight?
John
