@DarthIshyZ - you can get a limited list of posts by using the 'Recent Activity' tab instead..
I figured that out. Just wanted to make sure you guys had it on your punch list. Thanks, though!
This issue is still happening...
Maybe the search function is cursed?
@Grahame clearly said that the search issue cannot be fixed until XenForo is upgraded. And work on that upgrade has been in progress for over four years and may or may not ever reach the point of actually performing the upgrade. So live with it.
On the other hand, I'm noticing today that the issue with slow server responses is back. Specifically, submitting a post takes several minutes to respond, or sometimes it displays a timeout error. However, the post does appear after a minute or two if you reopen the page in a new tab to check for it.
@Jedi Knight Fett was talking about, and what I was talking about. He commented jokingly that it's because the Search function is back.
Then may I suggest being a bit more specific in future posts? You just said "This issue is still happening", without specifying which issue. Since multiple issues have been discussed in this thread, I assumed you meant the one most recently discussed, which was the search problems. Sorry about that.
Well it's the thread title, and after a long break in posting, and people keep complaining about it on other subforums, so I thought it was clear.
I went about my business of looking over other web pages for the past 15 minutes. I have been trying to post a vid in the what song are you listening to thread and it won't go through. Two pop up windows of the server. I'm not sure this post will go.
Add more hamsters to the server please
So, I remember reading that this version of Xenforo is woefully out of date. So why not update it? The issues seem to be getting progressively worse.
They've been working on the update. Allegedly. For four years now. I put the over/under at 10 years.
They work on Valve Time....
it's probably all very complicated so I'll be patient.
Far be it for me to suggest people with responsibilities over the technical support and administration of this forum do something to fix the technical **** ups occurring with periodic regularity. How outlandish and novel.
Can you please just admit you're hoping we'll get used to this third rate system; you couldn't fix it if you wanted to because you don't know how, and how it'd be a massive help to you if we just learned to live with quadruple posts and timeout errors?
It's a world better than the alternative of "we're fixing it but it's hard to update code when you're sitting on your hands"?
It has got really bad. I wait 2 minutes sometimes for pages to load, and Ive sat and watched the black loading box waiting for my post to appear for over 5 minutes in large threads. I know you don't have to wait for it to appear but still, not everybody does and they spam the post button instead and end up triple posting. Maybe the search could be turned off again? It's pretty useless and also maybe that would bring back the ability to see our non recent posting history.
Couldn't even post this a minute ago because the whole forum was down.
Edit: And took 45 seconds to appear as posted.
