Forum issues today?
« on: February 15, 2020, 11:47:13 pm »
Is something going on with the forum today?  Late last night I got logged out early. This morning Firefox doesn't want to connect on the first try and whines about "detecting redirect will never complete" or some such message.  And then when I did get in the page header where the login boxes are in the upper left corner was slightly different for awhile; its normal now.  Firefox connects if I try a sub board in the address bar (using Firefox autocomplete pick list or whatever it is called when typing in the address)  Then when I clicked on OpenXcom Forum I see this in the address bar:https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=n3hvsttla2fhvavddd7p3nl9vo&

Or does this mean I have a problem at my end?

Would this be related to the following error when trying to upload via post attachments: " The attachments upload directory is not writable. " ??

Thanks,

Seems like the website still has problems.  I can't get on the site at all using normal web from the UK, but I can using a VPN.  It's a workaround, but not ideal of course.


Edit: Ten minutes later and it's working fine.  Ignore my earlier comment.

It happened again today.  The message I got (latest Firefox browser) was: failed to load openxcom.org.  Then something about failure to load or recognise cookies (can't remember exactly).

Anyway, once I access the site through the VPN then go back to 'normal' web the site loads ok.  I think it might be something wrong with the settings on my browser and not the site itself actually, although other sites load ok.

I logged on today with no difficulty. so the problem seems to have resolved itself.  I did clear the cache in my browser, so maybe that helped.  If it re-occurs I'll do as you asked.
