Probably not related, but it's about PM's: when I'm on the phone, I can't respond to PMs because the "send private message" button has disappeared. I can read PM's, I can type out responses, but I can't send them.

So not just me then. ahdn_paul_01

No, and I'm on Android. Sometimes buttons like the "keep me logged in" button goes missing, I wonder if it's related.

Well, now you all have me wondering if it is my phone (Android) or the forum that randomly logs me off the forum. I was thinking it was just some glitch in my phone. But now...? 

I double-sent a welcome when that happened to me the other day. But, thank you FFE, for catching it and taking care of the 2nd post for me.

If there is a silver lining to all this, it shows me how much heart we all have for this place that we will make it work for us one way or another, by golly, by gum. No technical glitches blue-meanie can keep us away, at least for long. Even Faceo worked for weeks to make contact with us again.

Haha, yes I did. I refreshed it everyday. I basically jumped out of my chair screaming "YES!" when it finally loaded after 3 weeks. I love this place so much.heart

And to be on topic, my phone (iOS) also logs me out go back to the home page

I don't use my ipod for the forum often at all as its so pernickety to navigate but when i do i also get logged out and have to resign in. Thought it was just the device or me.

I'm fairly sure it's the device, because it's fine on my laptop

I've had it happen on the computer, but where I get logged out every time I finish looking at a thread, without fail, is on my iPod. I don't really understand these things very much, but if it's happening on Android and Apple devices, as well as on the computer (though much less), then that tells me it's a problem with the site.

My phone doesn't log me out all the time, thank goodness. It is just a random thing. I don't have an iPod so I can't comment on that issue.

Oh well consider yourself lucky, then. I have to go and log back after I'm done on every page.

The missing mobile buttons is a site problem. I don't know how to troubleshoot it effectively because my Android browsers don't have extensions like Firebug which can help with debugging design issues. I have an iPad too which I think doesn't render some buttons but the same applies.

The missing PMs is most likely a server thing, but I'm afraid I don't know what to do. Probably try yet another hosting company, as it seems to have begun since the last move (just before new year).

Sorry if you tried to access the forum and it was offline earlier. I tried making some changes which didn't work (software bug, not my fault for once) and I had to install a backup of the site. The good thing is the backups system I use seems to work very well.

The other good news is I'm finally paying for support from Simple:Press, so I'll be able to flag up any errors and oddities that occur here on the forum. Bear with me while I go through everything.

Yay for backups! Glad you will be getting some help.

Is this message a part of the glitch that just happened? When I try to go to the thread titled "Beatles presentation," I get this message:

Access denied - you do not have permission to view this page

or was my suggestion so numbskull as to get me banned from the thread? :-)

Don't worry Ahhh Girl, I get the same message. (And I could understand the logic behind your "numbskull" suggestion!)

It worked OK for me, logged in or out. However the "Last Post" thing on the forum homepage was blank so there may have been a glitch. I've added a reply to hopefully get things back on track, but let me know if you're still seeing weirdness.

In other news, on the forum homepage you might notice that the sections are all awry, including the albums sub-forums. That's why I had to backup earlier. It's not my fault, honest, it's a bug, but I'll try to get it sorted out.

In other other news, now that I'm paying for support I can add some new features. But I'll take that over to the forum changes thread.

I seem to have lost all posts from the last two days or so...

Uhhh, really. Damn. That wasn't supposed to happen. I lost a couple of new user registrations, but all comments were kept. I only rolled back to a snapshot taken an hour earlier.

If anything's been lost I'm really sorry.

In other news, on the forum homepage you might notice that Ringo's section is apart from the rest of them. That's to do with the reordering bug that made be revert to the backup earlier. I need to wait for a wider bugfix before I can put stuff in a more logical order. When the fix comes through Ringo will be rejoining his bandmates.

In other other news, now that I'm paying for support I can add some new features. But I'll take that over to the forum changes thread.

All of the replies people made to megopop09 were lost. There were about 5 or 6. @Mr Bellamy, if you see this message, was there anything you wish you had back from the conversation? I'll put my thoughts back on there.

I hate to point something else out, but is anybody else seeing the album sub-forums under the Non-Beatles discussions section?

Yeah, sorry, that was related to the problems earlier. I edited my message 314 to say...

Sorry too to megopop09 - I didn't mean that to happen. I genuinely don't know what happened there. Obviously restoring a backup isn't a decision to take lightly, but I didn't anticipate anything being lost either.
