    Yes, it was the standard link in my notification email - i.e.

    At the time, post #132 was the newest post.

    Re: New Forum Update

    Actually, I've just started to notice a distinct lag between clicking on the email link and the page showing. Probably about 30 seconds.

    Re: New Forum Update

    Some additional information about the forum software creating too big container boxes for non-inlined attached images, perhaps it's helpful:

    When I copied (via the image's context menu) one of the screen shots from http://forums.codeguru.com/showthrea...ebugging.....! and pasted it into Paint.NET for closer analysis, I got an image with dimensions 1310 x 737. The image I get in my browser display is 800 x 450 (as specified in the properties of the image displayed by the browser, matching my visual estimate). Looks like the forum software downscaled the images to neatly fit the screen (1280 x 1024) but created a container box with a width accomodating to the unscaled original image size, which of course is much too wide.

    For illustration I attached a screen shot of what I see here, in case that may behave differently depending on the browser. I have pre-downscaled this one to 50% at my end.

    Re: New Forum Update

    We'll need to take a look at the image uploading to see if we can replicate the issue.

    on a different note:

    I've been told that there are some background processes running that are taking some time. These are set up processes like rebuilding the forum search index. Because of the size of this forum, I've been told these are likely to run for a few more days. When they complete, I've been told response times should improve.

    I'd really love it that way, but unfortunately that's not what I get. In my IE8, code blocks seem to get an (enabled) horizontal scroll bar only if the longest code line is just a tiny bit (three or four characters at most, AFAICT) longer than the standard code block width. If they're longer than that, the lines get wrapped (see attached sceen shot, taken from http://forums.codeguru.com/showthrea...ip-to-hostname).

    I already mentioned in an earlier post that I'd definitely would prefer scrolling over line wrapping but then I had no idea that other users may actually already get the scrolling capability I was missing.

    Re: New Forum Update

    When posting a new thread there are two buttons:- Submit New Thread and Preview Post. Slightly underneath them is a section called Additional Options which also has the same two buttons. Within that section however, I couldn't make the Preview button work this morning (although the other preview button worked). It's possible that the 2nd Submit button didn't work either although I didn't try it.


    When simply replying to a thread (as opposed to starting a new thread) all the buttons appear to work.

    Re: New Forum Update

    It's bogged down on me again several times today. I'm running Firefox with Do Not Track and AdBlock extensions. I've tried disabling them on this site and it doesn't seem to make any difference. Sometimes when Firefox stops responding Chrome will work or at least get a bit further, but sometimes Chrome stops working too. When it's not responding, it just says Transferring data from Codeguru.com in the status bar.

    Re: New Forum Update

    Since the last update the response time of this site has been consistently bad. Not to the extreme of your experience, though a couple of times I closed the browser fed up with waiting for the page to show after several minutes.

    I use IE 8 when in my office and the latest version of FF at home. In my office we have very fast internet connections, but there is little difference when I access it from home. It's quite annoying, on top of the bugs and other unrequested changes introduced with the update.

    This used to be my preferred site, I used to check it constantly, all day, every day, whenever possible while in the office and then from home for a few more hours, but now I only visit it every now and then and am considering not coming back again. This is not only due to the negative impact of the update, I also found the posts in my favourite forums have declined a lot in quality (most of the time it's lazy bastards just looking for someone to do their homework for them).

    Okay guys, it seems Advanced Search still fails to search posts by User Name, and this is getting quite frustrating.
    Best regards,
