    Forum issues and problems.

    This forum was installed and is only barely configured, it's also on a shared web host that may not handle the load. However I am accessing it on such a slow connection, I can't tell if the forum is laggy, or if the net I am using to get to it is just slow.

    If anyone encounters errors, or sees things which they think are wrong. Please list them here.

    SMF (the free forum software this is using) is a little less feature rich than vb or ipb, but it's pretty stable and does appear to be able to handle decent sized communities. It's pretty clean and lean without too much bloat like user galleries or cms functions. Really I think if there is a weak link here, it will be in the hosting rather than SMF itself.

    Please post here any noticed issues and use the report button for any spammers or content that needs removal.

    Obviously, I can get this address on my pc, but I can't get it on my ipad. I type in the exact address, but ipad can't find it... What's up with that??

    So it's just another thing that ipad can't do, get used to it Bill.
    Missus bought herself a ipad and it only reinforced my hatred of all apple.
    It insists I play poker for play money and tells me flash is a no no, nearly used it as a frisbee before I just gave up and bought myself a little android thingy which does everything I ask of it.
    Can't belive I fell for the hype again, if it were up to me it would join my old ipod at the bottom of the drawer where useless electronic gadgets go to die.

    I am on an iPad.. The iPad works fine for the forum, tho I do share some of junkhouses sentiments..

    I am using a htaccess redirect that might be funky.. Try

    Www.asia-info.co/forum/index.php

    However it shouldn't make a difference and is working on all my devices..

    The needing to be logged in, should keep lurkers at bay a little.

    Primarily this is just about keeping the regulars connected.. I would rather see PI alive and healthy but if this lasts weeks, I guess until after this trip away, will have to decide about opening it up, creating sections, making it a better platform.

    Re: Forum issues and problems.

    Bill can you let me know what did and didn't work.. As Steve is reporting something similar on Facebook. For me all these work and should for everyone as far as I can tell.

    asia-info.co
    www.asia-info.co
    http://asia-info.co
    http://asia-info.co/forum/index.php

    They all work for me and lead to the last URL. Can others check them and if they don't work, let me know what error you get on what browser.

    Re: Forum issues and problems.

    Just seen this on the other forum.

    http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/...rumgone-again/

    Not sure if there is anything in it but post #7 is referring to a DDOS attack that may have something to do with the PI problems.

    Tried every comb: when I type them into to top bar, then hit for keyboard to disappear, so does the address I just typed....every time. As for google: tried every comb there also and could not find. ???

    Re: Forum issues and problems.

    Yessss. Now I know what I was doing wrong; After putting the site into the address box I just needed to hit 'go' instead of getting rid of the keyboard first. Every time I did that the address would revert back to the previous address.

    Re: Forum issues and problems.

    Don't hit keyboard go away.. Hit enter.. I think it says 'go' on the Ipad when typing in the address bar..

    Also ditch safari for chrome

    EDIT ::: you sussed it..
