I was just curious why the editing function is usually never available?

Unfortunately, I am one of those people that need to edit my post 10 times before I get it right. I think I have been able to edit a post about twice but other than that, the edit button is usually not available.

I posted some pics in a thread that are way too big and just wanted to delete them but unfortunately can't.

:s_sad

I believe I have the edit issue figured out now. I had to make a few choices so it may take some time to figure out if where we are is ok or if we need to adjust things further.

So, I believe folks will be able to edit posts now. This will time out after a while, so I may have to help if you are attempting to edit an old post.

MR, I'll try to find the one you're talking about and delete or edit the photo issue.

Yall let me know if I'm wrong and you still can't edit your new posts.

Thanks, Josh. It was my last post in this thread:

topic616-240.html

The 2 large pics of both St. Peter's Basilica and the Capitol Building.

OK, I took out the one that was real big.

VW had one a few posts up that was somewhat big like the second big photo in yours so I left it for now.

I'll get rid of that one too if you want, just let me know.

Thanks

Not the editing thing got better, but you cannot go back and edit twice. This messes me up to if I decide to add a pic then discover the pic is huge. It says I can no longer edit. Plus if it is a previous post and I later discover a typo, it will not let you edit previous posts.

Yes, please get rid of any huge pics. :)

That's really odd, I'll keep working on yours especially because you're a mod.

It could be the lack of skill by the admin, but it's not preferential treatment! :lol:


I think what went wrong for us is that I was in making some security changes when that last update by the host started.

Anyway, they had some good advice about how to make the site more secure so I was following that and seemed to cause some problems along the way.

There's a good amount of stuff to keep up with on that side of things. I'm getting better and should be up to speed with a little more practice.

Well, it's good to know somebody is actually doing something behind the scenes here!

:drinks:

Congrats and thanks again on a fine job and continued support.

I kinda know what you mean. :nea:

I use to have an online Bible Study group and the 'paperwork' that it involved was....well...it kept me busy.

Again thanks for this forum Joshua and all your hard work.

Yeah. I still can't edit posts. ARg

It seems to be very sporadic for me.

Were you trying to edit an old post of one you had just written?

Thanks

Actually it seems to be working again. Strange. I'm good now. Thanks, Josh.

I haven't figured our why it seems sporadic yet.

I didn't change anything and it's working for you again, so something is going on.

I'll keep looking into it.

Thanks

That new update took a while...

I'm no linux pro but I've had some fun with it on my pc over the years. Sometimes the updates do break other things. It might not be anything YOU are doing at all Joshua..just quirks in the software lol! If recommended security settings are breaking the forum, I would suspect that that the update is a tad bit buggy.

It might not be a bad idea if there was a time out on edits..such as 2 or 3 hours after posting, no more edits.

I wonder if a lot of deletions or edits confuse the database?

Finally, is there a way for YOU to keep a back up of this forum just in case the data base does decide to take a powder? The server itself probably has an auto back up and that's great, but if there's a way for you to make your own backup, it could save some problems down the road should the server itself take a crap. I've seen it happen a bunch!
