Yes, I couldn't stand waiting for pages to load any more so I paid for a much quicker reseller plan, and although it was obviously somewhat more expensive, they do throw a SSL certificate in for free, so we will be on secure HTTPS pages before you know it! Smiley

Yes, you're right, the option to change it seems to have no options any more! I will look into it.

Preview started working briefly with the edit tag, but then stopped. It might be slowness


Yes, it works on mine, but very slowly. Sad

Preview works if I start typing. But it stops working if I quote someone. Actually if I quote someone and then delete the quote, Preview still doesn't work. I think the only way to get it working again is to use the Post Message button.
Edited:
Safari on iPad, iOS 12.1.1

Just checking. Preview started working briefly with the edit tag, but then stopped. It might be slowness, the page is always reloading as I type.

I thought it might have gone away forever! Thankfully, nope!

Kinda sluggish at the moment.

I too am delighted to have the forum back. But I notice that pages are currently very slow to load, even though my broadband connection is fairly fast.

It would have been nice if some kind of notice was posted on the chesspublishing.com website briefly advising subscribers that management was well aware of the forum issue and working to resolve it as soon as possible.

Any who, welcome back.

It is possible that some things no longer work as they should, in which case please post here and I will try to fix them.
Assuming the Forum runs reasonably fast we will probably stick on this server, but if not I will plan a move to something else.

I revived this old thread, which suggests that there is a problem with the Forum every ten years!!
Early in the morning of the 1st January the Forum went AWOL. When I awoke the next day I discovered a number of emails from members who were wondering where it had gone! So, before setting off for my next tournament that afternoon I had a look at the usual suspects, spammers, hackers, etc. and could find nothing odd, so I got in touch with the server hosts who said that no server software had been updated, Very strange,
When I realised that there was nothing I could do I got in touch with the main YaBB software specialist and she downloaded the Forum onto her testbed, Apparently everything worked fine!
She thought that the server host had change something, but might not even know what that was! I asked them again, very politely, but they thought it was a problem with the Forum. Of course, nothing had been changed here for over two years, so it seemed impossible that it could be that.
Nothing was progressing, and meanwhile I had finished my tournament and come home. We decided to move the Forum to another server (as it turns out, to another continent!)
So, to cut a long story short, we have finished setting things up on a new server, we've changed the domain nameservers, and finally we are up-and-running again!
Thanks to everyone who sent words of support and encouragement! Smiley

I wouldn't miss email notifications myself since I check the site regularly.

Hmm, I must be an adict, especially finding myself having to contact the support address late last night - how can I sleep without knowing chesspub will be there for me in the morning   Wink
