  • Posting problems

    This just me or what?

    Several times right in the middle of posting a message and especially during download of a picture. I get kicked back to the log in.

    Happens a lot.

    You may be running into a file size limitation, or your connection is possibly just timing out. Are you using a broadband connection?

      I wish, can't get it out here, yet.

      On dial up.
      Don't think it the file. Last one I tried was only 48KB.

      Did not want to say it, but, I don't have that problem with EW????

        Our web guy will be looking into this, he might have to PM you for a little information. Hopefully this will be resolved in a timely manner.

            Re: Posting problems

            Hey Guys,

            I'm that "web guy" he was referring to.

            I'm having some trouble duplicating this, which I need to do so I can fix it.
            Is anyone else seeing this?

            @Grandpa:
            Can you tell me what web browser you are using and which version?

            Also, when you see this happening, can you tell me if you are at
            "www.powderbuythepound.com"
            or
            "powderbuythepound.com"
            (the "www" is the important part)

            If it's the second one (without the "www") can you try it with the "www"?
            It's possible that this will fix the problem.

                Ah.. AOL can be a bit tricky.
                I should have asked before - can you tell me what Operating System and Version you are using?

                I don't currently have a way to test AOL, but I'll rig something up.
                I am working on it, but it might be a little bit.

                In the mean time, you could download another (free!) browser.

                I HIGHLY recommend Mozilla's Firefox.
                You can download it here:
                http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

                Also you can go with the old standby Internet Explorer.
                You can get that here:
                http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...e/default.mspx

                PLEASE NOTE:
                I'm not suggesting that you need to download a new browser in order use our forms.
                We will do everything we can to make sure this site works in as many environments as possible.
                I'm just suggesting a couple of alternatives while we work on this problem.

                Hope that helps, I'll let you know when I have a more permanent solution.

                  Re: Posting problems

                  I have the same problem. I posted it when you first started. TNC accused me of posting and signing off. I have the same system as Grandpa(aol) I found if you sign on and click the LOG ME ON WHEN I VIST box and leave it like that and don't log off, it will go for a couple of days before it logs you off....sometimes. Hope this is of some help.


                  Ad on,,,,I tried Intenet explorer it did the same..logged me off

                    Same here. Forgot to mention. If you DON'T check LOG ME ON WHEN I VISIT it will kick you back every time. And as said ,even then SOMETIMES it does not last every long.

                      Re: Posting problems

                      I've had similar issues...

                      viewtopic.php?f=4&t=809

                      But I never get logged in for more than a second or 2. IE is my only hope at this point and I hate IE!

                        Re: Posting problems

                        So a little research discovered that this is a known issue between AOL and PHPBB (the forum software we are using).
                        The explanation is a little technical (by which I mean boring), but the short version is it has to do with the way AOL assigns ip addresses to it's users.
                        Unfortunately, that means my suggestion about using a different browser would not help with this.

                        Anyway, I made a change and it should be working now.
                        Grandpa and C3PC, try again and let me know if you are still getting logged out.

                        @Smashing:
                        That sounds like an entirely different problem.
                        Obviously you are losing your session in Firefox.
                        First off, have you updated to Firefox 3, the newest version?

                        If you haven't, try that.

                        If you are still having problems, check your cookie settings.
                        Is is possible that Firefox is blocking cookies?

                          Re: Posting problems

                          Trying without using the remember check.

                          Seems to work ok for text, so far. Trying a pic.

                          WOW.........It work fine. The reason I say WOW is because I did not think to check the size of the pictrure before I picked it.........801KB.
                          So any problem is definitly not the size of the download.

                          I'll keep a watch on it and let you know if I have a problem again. But right now looks like you done good.

                          Thanks,

                            Would not have a problem if you deleted that last post with the BLUE.

                            Should have looked before I picked it.

                            But it proves there should be no problem with size.

                              Thanks for the help. I cleared my cookies and all seems well. Hopefully it stays that way!
