The boss decides the features I just look at the cause. Two things were done yesterday: I disabled that particular mod (sometimes they are poorly written or set badly) and persistent spiders were blocked.

They certainly seemed to have worked. Pages are loading almost instantly at present, so well done. Your hard work - and our patience - are rewarded!

Thank you for your patience. I know its been a tough move, and even today I am still busy 'moving' / upgrading things in the background. The site is massive so its an ongoing work.

I always say that folk have unrealistic expectations of IT systems/services. Most folk would accept that if they booked a gearbox change for their car, they wouldn't be able to simultaneously driving it up the M1!

Thank you for all the hard work.
Its been frustrating (on and off) over the last few days but Im sure that itll all be worth it in the end.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Jean, you just keep doing what you're doing and it will all work out.  Communication is key so as long as Tank lets us all know what's going on it may help appease some.
As part of this upgrade process, am I right in thinking the N'porioum is still a work in progress, Add Auction only points to a test board and I was almost finished adding a lot when the screen just completely cleared.

Thank you good people but really the thanks should go to the boss, Tank as he is the one passionately investing in every way possible to make this the best online experience for you all.

My main concern is that everything is loading fast since yesterday evening into today. Once it is loading fast then that means we have isolated the cause and can work on it from there.

Just so that I don't keep trying to upload to the Gallery - is this function disabled? I have been trying to upload PDF images to my Gallery and I keep getting told it is an invalid file type or I don't have permission?

Tank will best say as I do not know what he has enabled / disabled.

Here's what is happening offline... the site has been using two galleries for uploads and we have been trying to merge it into one pro gallery but have been encountering issues during conversion which we are attempting to address in the background. I imagine when that is sorted then all will be functional.

Yes, I am still unable to upload pictures to my gallery. I guess it's still being worked on?

Oops... you beat me to it and answered that question!  :beers:

Hi,

Might have been answered before but as you're talking about posting pictures. The other week they would upload if the pics were made smaller. I have difficulty doing this as am a computer numpty so when it's sorted will it all go back to how it was ie picture size can be loaded as it took me about 2 years to master how to do it before?

Hope that makes sense. Anyway, thanks to all the tech people, Happy New Year and good luck with whatever you're doing.

Cheers weave  :beers: (BTW I can open wine bottles   :thumbsup: :D)

I agree wholeheartedly with what @weave has said. However, in my case I am not very good with wine bottles, but give me a good whisky bottle ...............  :).
