    1) That's a feature, not a fault. The site's just trying to slow you down so someone else can have a go ;)

    Seriously though, it's a bit of a weird one that bud - just out of interest, have you seen it do the same thing in Firefox?

    You might've noticed the site was up and down like the proverbial drawers last night - we were working on an issue which is causing the site to have a mahoosive go-slow each evening around 9-10pm. Once that's nailed we've got some more fixes/upgrades to integrate, and the AJAX stuff which is involved with replies and quick replies is going to get some work so you should see that sorted this week. I'll post again to let you know when it should (hopefully) be sorted.

    2) Image embedding should work fine - the problem may well be related to .htaccess protection on the images you're trying to embed - more and more sites are preventing their content being embedded elsewhere using .htaccess and other tricks. If you upload an image to an Album on ASN, and embed it from there, does it show?

    [​IMG]

    ...That one seemed to work OK (that's a file on another server I have (completely separate from ASN) and not .htaccess (or other) protected).

    Cheers,

    Rob.

    Any update on audisport.tv? I'm having probelms with it:

    It took 3 days to be able to see the videos I uploaded even though on my home it said they had been watch 38 times.
    On one of the videos I selected the larger embed size which now covers the data on the right of the page. I cannot edit the embed data (that I can see) so it's stuck that way. So I'll probably have to upload it again.
    When I want to add tags to one video I have to re-enter the title and description in those boxes before I can save it.

    I do like it though :sm4:

    In short mate, there are a few issues with that one at the moment; but we're going to be working on settling down the Forum (& CMS / Blogs) before we attack that - mainly because we've got the two sites integrated and logistically it makes more sense to settle one bit down first, then do the other - just in case work in one area has an effect on the integration. There'll be an announcement (and trust me, there'll be bells, whistles, fireworks, the lot) when Audi-Sport.tv is fully functional...

    Cheers,

    Rob.

    Thanks for putting it so delicately jojo :thumbsup:

    Yes, we've been up and down a lot today and when we've been up we've been plagued with database errors. We're working on it at the moment... Hopefully we'll have it 90% improved in the next few hours...

    Thanks and regards,

    Rob.

    Right, another little update...

    As I'm sure some of you are aware, we've been down for quite a prolonged period tonight - hopefully it's been worthwhile and we should enjoy a bit more reliability and pace around here again, but of course we'll only know for certain when we've had some traffic through here, I'll keep you posted as far as I can as things develop...

    Thanks for your patience and regards,

    Rob.

    Hey guys --

    I keep getting "Searching has been disabled." - presume you already know about this? Also, I was gonna say, I'm in the trade so if you need help and I got some time, I'll have a peek or offer advice?

    Infact, it's as I said it, I just tested it by hitting the refresh button, and started typing into the text box midway through loading, and the text disappeared. :bye:

    Don't know if it's related to what you guys are doing with the upgrade, or the fact that ASN is running on barebones mode. But the little blue button that takes you to unread posts isn't working, it just opens up existing threads from the beginning.

    Maybe its just me not lucid at times, but are the posts now seperated as such, as I was sure they were all grouped in one long page as such, I like it tbh as its easier to distinguish posts from eachother.

    Seems like another case as is common with a lot of upgraded software. One small step forwards and one giant leap backwards and I large amount of time having to be spent to get back to where you were with the previous version.

    Being a retired IT Manager I have seen this happen so many times in the past. And it's still happening. A classic example be Microsoft's Excel. I still use the 2003 version because the 2007 version cannot do some of the things that you could do in 2003. And the latest beta of Excel 2010 adds back some but not all of the functionality that was available in Excel 2003.

    I've also had it several times. Seems like things are going backwards rather than forwards.

    I currently have all three versions of Excel, 2003, 2007 and the beta of 2010 loaded in separate virtual machines on my PC in both Windows XP and Windows 7.

    In Excel 2003 you can write macros and assign them to a button on a toolbar. You can also design the button so that it reminds you what it does. This is a function I use all the time both when I'm designing new spreadsheets for the RSPB and when myself and others are entering data into those spreadsheets. In Excel 2007 you cannot do that. In the beta of Excel 2010 Microsoft have added back the ability to write macros and assign them to a toolbar button but there is only one button design available and you cannot design you own so all the macros will have the same design of button which will make using them rather difficult. I know of quite a few organisations who will not upgrade to Office 2007 for this very reason.

    There is some 3rd party software available which allows for the normal 2003 type toolbars to be used but it does not allow you to attach macros to extra buttons. Perhaps Microsoft will add back the full functionality in Excel 2013!!

    For anyone that didn't know, the search seems to be up and running again, but only when using the top right search bit, the 'advanced search' is not fully functional.


    Rob/Admin, can you have a look at the little blue icon you click on that goes to new posts within a thread, it's not working at all for me. This button I'm on about ---> [​IMG]

    That's not working at the moment, you need to click on 'Go Advanced' at the bottom of the text box, and the smilies will be accross the page with a sideways scrollbar.
