Many thanks.

I may be a slow typist: twice now, while compiling a post and doing a little research in the background, I've finished composing a reply — and found that after I click "submit" I'm required to log in again — and whatever it is I've just finished writing is wiped from the cache altogether. Rather than wrack my brains to remember what it is I just finished writing, I opt to slink back to matters related to work. I'm not sure if this is to preserve bandwidth and keep cost down — or if it's merely my glacial pace ill-fitted to the era of texts and tweets. If it's the former — quite understandable — I'll prep first in a text editor and copy and paste in one go. If it's just a default "log out after X min." setting that costs you not a penny more, please consider multiplying it by a bunch.

Regards,

Y


Damn. I wish you'd post more.

I'm not aware of any forum setting that would log you out after a certain period of time, so this is a bit puzzling.

When you login, do you select the "keep me logged in" checkbox option?

If I have a long post or one that requires substantial research, I typically compose in a text editor and then copy and paste it over. Just in case.

Bandwidth costs are not an issue for this board.

I'll second YMIx's comment hoping that you will post more.

Best,

Typhoon

Thanks, gents.

Typhoon — odd as it may seem, the option to stay logged-in check box doesn't appear on my browser. The only toggle there is "to log on automatically".

I'll opt to prep anything lengthy first in a text editor.

I just highlight and copy before clicking "submit". No failures so far.

Yes, that's the more convenient solution.

I'm experience slow viewing of embedded youtube videos. When I look at the "what are you listening to" thread, there is a lot of blank space where youtube videos should be. Sometimes it takes a long time for videos to show up, and sometimes they don't show up.

Do you know what is causing this? Is there a solution?

Thanks.

Have you recently cleared your browser cache? This seems to speed up loading.

Quote function behavior.......

Postby monster_gardener » Wed Nov 20, 2013 4:54 am

Thank You VERY MUCH for Maintaining the Forum, Admins Typhoon & YMix

There appears to be a minor malfunction of the quotes function.

When quoting the previous post, part of the quoted post leaves the quote box and sometimes will not be forced back within.

Example......

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=2426&p=65110#p65110

Wondering if maybe the limit on the number of quotes is involved but is not giving the warning as it did before.

I could be making some error but I have seen this more than once.

Thanks in advance for your time and attention.

Thought you should know but not a critical problem: I can work around it

If you mean this:

[/quote="Ibrahim"]

I only call being racists and bigots when they are, and I don't start five threads a day to do it. One, maybe two tops.

As for what I want to hear, I want to hear why you don't care about the lies of the last president but are obsessed with the lies of this one.

[/quote]

there shouldn't be any dash before quote="Ibrahim"

More on the text escaping the quote block possible problem..

Thank You VERY MUCH for your Reply, YMix

The dash / before quote="Ibrahim" was a mistake on my part when I was trying to correct the problem that that part of the original quote had exited the quote block. Removing it does get that portion of the text into its own text block but I have removed it and the quote="Ibrahim" so the original problem can be seen.

My apologies for my mistake which obscured the original problem. :oops:

Thank You VERY MUCH again for your time and attention.

Your Friend,
MG

NOTE: It seems that the last part of you post has also escaped the quote block :!:

I just tried quoting you post again and it did it again on preview.

Below is the example. I only quoted your post and then submitted it without any other alterations.

Because there are two [/quote] in my post and so the quote stops at the first one.

Thank You VERY Much for your reply and explanation, YMix.

Perhaps there was a similar problem with Ibrahim's post.

I may check later.

Thanks again.

The spambots have cracked the current registration challenge.

Upgraded from PHP 5.2 FastGCI to PHP 5.4 FastCGI.

Not sure at to why, but on my system the forum response time seems to have improved.

I received an e-mail informing that PHP 5.2 will no longer be supported,

so I logged into the hosting site, went to the appropriate section and

clicked a radiobutton switching the default PHP from PHP 5.2 to PHP 5.4 [FastCGI option] and then pressed the save button.

Trivial, but it did require a bit of manual effort on my part.

I would like to upgrade to the current version of phpBB [the forum software] but can no longer do this from the hosting site after their "improvements".

Will get around to it at some point.

How does one pronounce phpBB? Just hum while using your forefinger to twiddle your lips? ;)

PhpBbuppery is much faster since the upgrade. Thanks!
