Technical Problems

In difference to suggestions, this area is best used to note any technical problems or short-commings.

There is a small bug in the new version of SMF that effects Internet Explorer 8, we have the latest production version.

This bug causes the post to jump when one writes near the bottom of a post that is long enough that it is scrolling. The scroll funtion stops scrolling, although one can write below the exposed window, obviously the writing is blind, and it jumps with each letter typed.

The solution for the time being is to use compatibility mode when using Explorer 8. This resolves the problem.

As soon as there is a more elegant fix available I'll install it. (And/or take a look at the code myself)

Thanks for your understanding.

I just "jumped" again, thanks for reminding me of COMPATIBILITY VIEW.

That can be found under TOOLS in ie8, at the top right of your screen.
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

When I try to send PM's, the text box is jumping up and down, it's like my downward key is stuck (but it's not)
Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, Pep, that is the right place that Vincent Marcus mentions.

I did respond, not sure why you didn't get it.

The administrator EMail is loaded with more than 60 SPAM applications per day. so mails sometimes get lost there, but if you want to get more direct attention, a PM (Private Message would be better).

However I sent a response one or two  days after you sent the first request.

Thanks

I've been experiencing a problem loading this site on chrome and firefox. When I try to load the forum about half the time the page will fail to load and I'll get this message:

Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: /home/poiscent/public_html/forums/Sources/Security.php
Line: 279Database Error: MySQL server has gone away
File: /home/poiscent/public_html/forums/Sources/Load.php
Line: 2023

I guess it's just me though since nobody else has said they've had the problem.

I haven't had that loading problem with this site in a couple weeks or so.

It's coincidental, but happens usually during a back-up. Either when I or the hosting service is doing a backup
the database gets disproportionately busy for a minute or so. If it's a hosting service backup, it could last
a little longer.

Not related to your browsers though.

Thanks for mentioning it.

No I don't think so, that would be more like a survey..

The link to "Naked Scientists POIS Thread" at the main page is a broken link to this forum.

Hey everybody WE'RE BACK.

Slight problem with access! Took this long to get a decent response from support.

Our upgrade was good, but the password to the maintenance area got changed in the process, and I couldn't get access until now to fix the problem.

It's fixed temporarily. It seems the database is too big, which kicks the forum into maintenance mode. I will be weeding out frivolous stuff to help avoid the problem in the future.
