Problems with the forum?
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:47:46 PM »
Could you please state here if you receive errors with the forum loading please, as we've been getting '504 Gateway Timeout' on various days and I'd like to keep track of them.

Many thanks.

Was getting this yesterday evening, can't remember exactly what time, will make a note in future.  It was running extremely slow at one point.

A few weeks ago I was informed that I was a robot and had to do some sums before I could access the forum. I was using an iPad but I'm not a robot, honest  :D
I haven't had the gateway timeout notice but I did wonder about the robot ones.

Regards

Veronica.

I got the 504 gateway timeout yesterday at 12.29pm precisely.
I switched the computer off as I had other things to do, when I went online much later everything was fine again.

Agree with John.
Wasn't able to get on at work today due to IT issues, but it does seem to go down at around 12.30 every day :(

I have no such error, but I do still have the problem that I can only log in from the Home Page after two or three attempts.

What never works is coming to the forum, reading a thread(s), deciding I want to reply, and then trying to log in through the top of that thread's page. That never works at all. 

I don't know why! Cleared caches and all that stuff too!

I've had this too when trying to access the forum on my phone. I used to get the mobile version of the site on it but now it's reverted back to the full site.

If you go right down to the bottom of the home page there is the word "mobile" click on it and you'll have the mobile version on your phone again.  I find when using my mobile it is quite easy to inadvertantly get the full site when you don't need it and discovered the link back to the mobile site by accident.  :)
