    I think we lost some posts in the last few hours. In the chaos I think I accidentally opened the forum on the old installation and people kept posting over there.

    If you can't find a post you made in the last few hours, please post it again. I messed up as usual. :(

    Don't worry, I'm good at punishing myself. :blackeye:

    We appear to have lost a couple of posts by @Padowan in the GOR and PME threads, and one by @Value Collector in the Food Scarcity thread. Ooops! :whistling:

    Since yesterday, SEARCH function isn't working. And Contact Us tells me it's an Error, and to wait 30 seconds.

    On both laptop and mobile.

    I was locked out of posting until about 5pm today.

    (A blessed relief to all :D).

    Could I suggest that if this is done again you could give us the new IP address Joe, so we can go there directly until the DNS's catch up ?

    An interesting idea. I hate the agonisingly slow process of DNS propagation but there is nothing you can do about it. Unfortunately getting to the new site is not quite so simple as typing in an IP address. The way the host told me to go about it was to edit the HOSTS file on my PC, which did work well.

    However, some people may find that a little more involved than they would like and may prefer to wait it out.

    It has been very slow here today. I suspect we had quite a few people locked out. Hopefully they are back now.

    OK, back to getting that search engine up and running. Grrr.... :mad:

    I don't love it, but I can deal with it. Except for days like today when everything goes wrong.

    I bet you're probably right about that.

    You lost posts and PMs? How many?

    Did anyone else lose posts or PMs?

    Can you link me to a post where the thumbnails are broken?

    Hi Joe

    What I have found after ASF Downtime.

    I put in a search and it returns "Aussie Stock Forums - Error", it doesn't matter what I search for.
    My Profile Page: "Recent Activity" tab, looks ok to me. "Postings" tab, it shows up 'The Following Error Occurred, the search could not be completed. Please try again later.
    "Information" I tried 'Find All Content by Debtfree' the same error occurred as above.

    I knew I put up a post recently that displayed a thumbnail attachment box below the main post so I went back to see if I could see the thumbnail box below it but only found an untitled green line link now.
    See below, I don't know if this is any help. Thanks for your time Joe.
