View new content....not working?

I got the same "database error" for a couple of days earlier this week, but when the forums were back up and running, everything appears to be working just fine (and I didn't have to log back in).

 

When you click on the "View New Content," check the left-hand side of the page to make sure your choices haven't accidently changed.

Still not working. On the forum main page I find new post, but view new content does not bring them up/

That is really acting like you're not logged in. That's exactly what happens. I know you said you were but........ :) Is your login name showing on the very first area in black on the top right of the page?

Well it is back to acting up. ie. NOT WORKING.

 

No matter what selections I pick on the left, I do not get up dated on the View New Content. I have to got to the main forum page and go into the subforms to se all of the updated post.

 

Why can't an Administrator check this and respond?

 

I have been site moderator and site administrator on a large RV site and complaints like this were picked up and responded to.

 

Is this anyway to run a railroad?

If so many people are successfully getting View New Content, why do you believe the Website Administrator can fix your problem?

 

The View New Content is based upon a cookie on your disk. When you are logged into the website, then the cookie is accessed to see what the last content time you saw an generates a display of Since Last Visit, last 24 hrs, etc.

 

The View New Content would not be available if you weren't logged in.

 

So the probability is something is wrong with the cookie. Delete the cookie, probably the easier way is to delete them all instead of trying to figure which cookie it is. Flushing caches does not necessarily delete cookies.

Cleared all of the cookies twice. Still no go. Logged in and logged out. Flushed Cache, checked for updates on Firefox.

 

I give up for now and will just work my way down the forums that I have interest. And will try again in a week or so.

The forums were down for a while around 11:00 PM AZ time last night for another database error.

 

Frustrating to hear of problems like Ken's where the usual remedies don't work. I had to remove 9 cookies for the forums, clear the cache and restart the browser last time I had a glitch like his before things started working again. I'm in about the same position he is on his problem, wait it out and see if it improves.

 

As an alternative you could try another browser until Firefox starts working better, Chrome is pretty good or if you are feeling brave (sorry, couldn't resist this) you could play with Brave that is interesting but still in the early stages of development. https://brave.com/
