Don't know who's responsible for maintaining your site Jim but these problems should have been solved with the last batch of servers you bought.

Maybe it's time to replace your cadre of programmers and replace them with folks who know what they're doing, or at the very least, keep an eye on what's going on around here......

I suspect the problem is somewhere between the keyboard and chair.

It up but something is screwed up. It’s truncated the HTML code for the front page. If I look at the HTML source it’s cut off mid-page.

No, I don't.....

Got your sidebar you paid for? How about your extended threads or are they chopped off?

You get what YOU paid for?

LOL!

Like I said, time for a new tech crew if the new servers aren't the problem.........

I’m having problems too but since I’m a 79 year old grandmother and not a 3 year old, my computer skills are not the best.
Please tell me how to access “Preferences”

At the top left of the page you should see “Forum Acccount ..etc..”

Click on ‘Account’.

A page with a list of options will come up.

Go about a 1/4 of the way down the page and you will see ‘My Preferences’.

The second listing on that page will list ‘Browsing’.

Click on ‘20 results per page’.

I selected 20 results per page months ago, but I can’t page down to the bottom of my ping list. There is some kind of glitch happening here.

FR is like a beloved old car with 200,000 miles. You’re comfortable with it, and not surprised when it has occasional breakdowns, which are quite frequent.

I have not had a problem with my preferences until today. I changed them at Jim Robinson’s recommendations.

It’s just a temporary fix until they can work out the problem.

I just noticed that my ‘pings’ aren’t all showing up either.

Don’t know if it’s a glitch in FR’s server or the net.

I’ve had it happen to other sites as well and they seem to ok the next day.

oh well.

I’m sure this problem will be easily fixed, once Mr. Robinson is aware of it.

Thanks for your help. With the new servers, this site has been speeding along, and this is the first glitch that I can recall since the installation. It’s relatively minor, and I expect that it will soon be resolved.

Even with the ‘glitch’, FR is just flying..

It's not the first, it's one of several and it's not the alleged servers anymore.......It is what it is tho.

I switched to 50 and it seems to also fix whatever problems are caused by what appears to be a timeout condition.

With the quicker fetch of a shorter list, it beats the timeout.

I’m not sure telling the site owner to fire his brother is going to be a productive suggestion.
