Yes, this server stuff ain't easy, thanks for putting in the work!
Turmeric and Rosemary 30-45 minutes before orgasm for anti-inflammatory and immune support has helped me a lot. Faster and easier than niacin approach.

The problem was relatively small, but since the forum upgrade, the hosting service had a different ássword in the maintenance area, so I couldn't get access to fix it. It took me most of a day talking with support to get them to reset my password.

Demo has a "tinyURL somewhere of a link to our back-up googe groups forum, if we ever have problems like this again. A means to keep communications open even though this one might go down.

Hopefully it will be stable now. However I do have to go in and prune the database.

WITHOUT RESEARCH THERE WILL BE NO CURE!
Sessions 5 to 9 days, mostly Flu-like, joints, digestion problems, light cognitive.
Niacin has changed my lif though, now 1 day MAX.
Somewhere in this interaction with Niacin is the answer!

Hi, does anybody know where to find the "View the most recent posts" button. I only have the "Show unread posts since last visit" & "Show new replies to your posts" buttons. Thanks.

Thanks for the link Prancer. If it wasn't you, i would definitely have missed at least 10 posts. The ''Show unread posts since last visit'' isn't working very well to me and sometimes isn't working at all!

Since the upgrade, it seems impossible to hide one's email address from being public. The only reason that's a problem is because surely they'll be harvested for spam. For me, it's not a problem because I used a temporary/throwaway email address (which has a lot of spam because of this, but since it's a throwaway it doesn't matter). But for those who use their personal one, the spam might become a problem. Before the upgrade, the email address was hidden by default.

So you are telling me that even now that I have chosen my email to be private, you can enter my profile and view it ? (Basically I didn't choose it, my email, as you said, is hidden by default.)
I entered as a guest and my email was still hidden.. Your email is hidden from me too.. How can you view them ?

Yes, as an example, go to http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=25.msg14051#msg14051

The white envelope icon on the left side is where it appears. The settings don't seem to fix it.

I should add that the white envelope icon is a link, which "points" to the email address as a "mailto:" address. So someone can see the email addresses, depending on the browser, by simply right clicking and then clicking "copy email address". It is like this for every member, and is visible whether logged in or not.

Yes, I 've seen it now. You can only view it in someone's post, under his username and/or profile picture. However, when viewing the profile the email hides, so you can only view it when someone posts. Right click copy email address, or right click open in a new tab, or simply just click the email icon and it automatically gives you the email address.

Well that's something not good for many users that use their real email address, because they lose their privacy and become vulnerable to unwanted emails. I think I'm going to change my email for now and use a disposable as you do, cause I don't want my real email to be accesible by every person (and I don't mean only by users here), but by guests too!

I'm getting problems posting links using the url tag for hyperlinks over the last few days. It's giving me an internal error. Like for example using this link https://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=2885.0 and this title: Is POIS associated with an Autonomic Nervous System Dysfunction? Also have problems with other links, probably has something to do with the url code itself. Getting a few internal errors in a row disconnects me from poiscenter. Why did this become a problem these last few days, I haven't been able to post anything with url codes since then.

Muon, do you have the same issues if you use a different browser, like Firefox instead of Chrome, or if you log in with a different device ?

If yo do not have this problem with another browser or device, then the problem is in the browser, so empty this browser cache AND erase its cookies, and it will resolve the issue. 

A complete stop of your device and a reboot may also help, in case the above does not work.

Hi Quantum,

I have tried emptying browser caches
Tried 3 different browsers: Internet Explorer, Chrome and Opera giving me the same result.
And tried different devices including my mobile phone.

Trying to modify my existing threads by inserting a hyperlink gives me a 500 internal server error. When getting this message like three times in a row will result into an ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT which will prevent me from connecting to the website at all, got no problems with other websites though.

I also flushed my DNS, that didn't help either.

I believe it all started when I had to switch off the main power in my apartment because I had to fix some electronic connections.
This is such a silly problem.

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@poiscenter.com to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


The issue occurs when using the insert hyperlink code above the smileys or type it manually and place an arbitrary link plus text then it will give me this error whenever I press Preview or Save after placing the url code.
How do I enter the server error log?
