Sorry about the truncating pages and missing sidebars problem

Posted on 01/29/2013 12:11:57 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Sorry that the truncating pages and missing sidebars problem is back again. I'm trying to reach John so he can fix it. No luck so far. Hope he checks his messages soon.

I've also asked him what causes this, but he hasn't answered. Hoping we can get a permanent fix soon.

Meanwhile, the work around is to set the number of results and items per page to 20 each. Look for the "My Preferences" link under "Account" at the top of any of the latest posts index pages.

Thanks

FWIW, I did a search and the sidebar showed up on that page.

Saying hi 2 Jim, nothing more.

FR could be covered with BAND-AIDS and it would be 10x better than any major network.

A good reminder of how much many of us count on FR for news & info, and maybe to consider coughing up a few bucks to help keep this great site on the ‘net.

I’m not so sure it’s FreeRepublic servers that are the problem.

I’m having difficulty with my Yahoo mail as well.

Mail options,such as ‘forward’,’delete’, etc do not show and most of the ‘options’ links don’t work.

It may be more of a ‘node’ problem between the I.P.’s and the servers.

BTW.. All pages I visit are not affected by this problem.

Unfortunately, it didn’t fix mine.

We’ll just have to wait until it gets sorted out...

Your earnestness for FR and for its fine performance is a given. Thanks is often sparse, but when things go imperfectly, it’s a good time to remind you and each other of our thanks and appreciation for this site, and for the burden of responsibility you carry around for our sake.

Thanks for the update.

Ok. Just tried it again and it worked.

The first time I only set ‘messages per page’ to 20 and left
‘results per page’ at 50.

I set both to 20 and not only does it show the rest of the threads, but the SIDE BARS ARE BACK!

Yeah!!!

:0)

I think of 100 posts per page as like high capacity magazines.

I.E. Why would anyone need 100 posts per page?

First you’re asking us to voluntarily turn in our 100 post pages. Soon you’re going to confiscate them and make us live with 20 post pages. I know how you guys work.

JUST KIDDING!

We live in a high capacity world. Why would any good citizen need high capacity magazines? For those times when the bad guys keep coming or won’t stay down. We’re in a world of hurt when the bad guys (including wannabe totalitarian governments) outgun us.

I have had zero problems with FR since November.
I am so glad I signed up for the “premium” service.
