Re: Incorrect message

Why do I get the following incorrect message when visiting a level below "Board index" like for example "Equipment"?: "You do not have the required permissions to read topics within this forum." Magnus, I tested out the board using your permissions and everything seems...

Re: XCSki Forum Hosting - Donations Welcome

Thank you Jay. You are not wrong. I don't know about talented but I have a fair bit of experience with websites and programming. Most of the time I do spend doing administration is spent filtering out spammers. The built in functions work marginally. I'd say about half of the registrants are junk ac...

Re: XCSki Forum Hosting - Donations Welcome

I'm not looking to make any money here but it would be nice if it was self supporting. 979 @ $0.051 would be good. :) I'm sure a few of those accounts are spammers though, not sure you will get even a penny out of them.

Re: XCSki Forum Hosting - Donations Welcome

I figured this is a good time to bump this message. We're creeping up on ski season. Shameless plug for a hosting fund donation or two.

Re: XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2016

I was doing some maintenance Tuesday night and I ran into some serious database issues. I had to have the webhost restore the DB from tape (they charge for this service). It took them a bit but they got it restored. It's possible that we lost a few posts in the process depending on when the last pos...

Re: How to put photos into posts?

Jeff. If you use the img tags the image needs to be on a public webserver. So if you have a place to put them online you can point your image tag there. If not you can attach the images to the post. There are two tabs (Options/Attachments) below the box you enter your post in.

XCSki Forum Hosting - Donations Welcome

Up until recently I've been hosting the forum alongside a number of other websites (including my business) all on a single hosting plan. Due to some bad code, crawler bots, and spammers, my hosting was overrun which in turn also shut down my business website. As a result I have moved all non-busines...

Re: XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2016

Well that was fun. Between some bad code on another site and a couple of the crawler bots my hosting was totally overrun. This in turn killed my business website for the better part of a day. We can't have that now can we. As a result I purchased a second hosting package for all non-business related...

Re: Suggestion Box

I agree 100% on the unread menu. I will get it moved. I also probably need to revisit the opening links in a new tab edit.

Re: XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2016

Some progress and a little downtime tonight. Hopefully everyone is enjoying the new layout. I started to polish up the look just a little. I'll wrap up the logo this week. We've had at least 70 junk registrations since I installed the latest version. I finally took steps up install an extension that...

XCSki Forum Update / Outage / Issues - 2016

Ladies and Gentlemen! Love it or hate it, we've moved onto the latest version of this forum software. It was a perfect time for this seeing that there is basically not enough snow here in Central WI to hit the trails. Yesterday the forum was overrun with hits (likely from someone's' bot) and it kill...

XC Ski Forum Outage and Issues

Sorry about yesterday everyone! Unbeknownst to me the webhost decided to upgrade PHP and mySQL on the server. All of my websites were down for I'm not sure how long yesterday. I noticed at about 7 PM and got everything up in about 45 minutes. I will be updating the forum version somewhere in the com...

Re: Injury Forum? Thumb

This thread probably belongs in General Discussion but I'm open to any additional heading if we think it would be nice to have.
