I still cannot change page. I use Chrome. Do I need to do something on my part or you guys are still working on it. Please quote me so I can see the reply. Thanks!

I think they are still working on the updates.

"Likes" and changing pages still only work for me ( using Chrome and Firefox on Windows ( 10 and 11 ) and Linux) when I connect using http:// (insecure) vs https:// (secure)

for example http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/185663-forum-problems-please-read/page/4/#comment-2804780 everything works as expected

whereas:  https://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/185663-forum-problems-please-read/page/3/#comment-2795604   does not work as expected


cheers, Graham

Update: I think we have it fixed. I'm having no issues using the forum with Chrome. I tested paging, activity streams, posting, and search. The fix triggered some massive index rebuilds, so searching may take a while. We have 2.5 million posts, so I suspect anything touching that resource will take a long(ish) time. 

Leave a comment here if you experience anything odd, but it really looks like this problem is fixed. 

Thank you all for your patience. This was a difficult problem to diagnose and solve.  

Nota Bene: I'm seeing some delays in saving posts. I suspect this is temporary. but I'll keep an eye on it.

I’m still having the same issues while trying to use this site with Bing ( no photos loading, can’t reply to topics, etc ) . Luckily I can still use DuckDuckGo as a work around 

Thanks for your comments but we don't use mobile phones so no apps.

I'm getting error messages when i try to open a topic. I get a black and white mcm logo and error this directory doesn't exist message. it opens if i click the try again link on the error message but not if i use the browser refresh. and my posts are taking a long time to post too.

I’m not using my mobile phone,not sure why your assuming that. I’m using an IPad and up until the update I was using Bing which is a search engine. Thankfully the DuckDuckGo APP IS working for me on my iPad . If that wasn’t working my previous method would leave me with a website not working properly ( see my previous post )
