Forum Upgrade: Questions, Comments, Issues?


Recommended Posts

@Chad  It seems that the forum is extremely sluggish this AM (16 Aug. 2021, from 04:00 local time to the present). 

 

Looking at the "Online Users" pages, there are sometimes over 100 pages of member activity listed, and all the users have visited within the last 30 minutes.  Is there a new kind of web crawler that's vacuuming up all the threads, or is this a signal that the time stamping of the member activity is somehow compromised?

 

Anyway, since you typically don't spend much time on the forum, I thought it might be news to you that the forum is experiencing big delays.

The main issue is we are getting a ton of traffic from over 1000 Russian IP addresses, probably trying to DDOS the site. I'm attempting to mitigate. Step one was upgrading the forum software which was about 2 years overdue. Obviously there is more to do.

I can see it here. I´m on the dark theme, nice subtle change. Thanks @Chad!

The new column format where the summary statistics are on the top right of more developed threads makes the posts too narrow and results in the need to open many more of the graphic uploads to see their detail. I hope this can be changed, automatically as you scroll down past the summary stats, or by user selection. Thanks.

Thanks. I'm on it. There will probably be some site downtime while I work on this.

Did you check the BS filter. I may be clogged or full. It has been working overtime lately here.

Current sluggishness is mostly related to a reindexing of most database data due to the software upgrade. Could be a day or two before things get better. Sorry all!

@Chad So, one of the changes that I see that's occurred is that the "edit" button has either been removed from the posts--or hidden in a place that I don't see.

 

Is this a temporary thing, or permanent?

Look for the 3 dots in the upper-right corner of your post. That's a menu that should contain "Edit"
