Re: Web designers

Odesk is a great source. I think they changed their name to something else - but look for developers in India. They give the most bang for the buck. I would STRONGLY advice against taking this route. There are many pitfalls which I know from my web development circles, so please find a reputable se...

Re: reset post count total

Hi there ps25!

If you head into your ACP and under General (Board Statistics) ... scroll down until you reach "Resynchronise statistics" ... click [run now], hopefully that cures your issue?

All the best,
Cal :)

Re: Forum crash

When you say "crash" .. can you be more explicit? (freezing, cycling or other event).

Re: Random Account Switching

Just curious, now that we have arrived at 1st June (and in our case, this bloody Varnish Cache issue kicked off a shade over a month ago), has anyone witnessed any miraculous fix, now that we are into a ne month???

All the best,
Cal :)

Even if I attempt to log in manually, I return to the home page of the forum, only to find out that I'm still not logged in.
In this circumstance, what happens when you press CTRL+F5? ... do you suddenly show logged in again??

All the best,

Re: Login issues

Just to add to this thread. The site I manage is having the same issue. It is also on bluehost. AND it started around the same day this thread was started. Maybe bluehost made a change to something around the end of April that caused this issue for people. Indeed, we are still having random issues ...

Re: Random Account Switching

Two words for you all today/tonight .... "ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY" This is my genuine report on numerous live chats, trying to address this problem over a near two week period. After much "ducking and diving" on our hosts part, not budging on even attempting to convince me that they were trying everythi...

Re: "Forum Names" I guess is really the best way I can put it..

So, if I am reading this correctly? ... are you asking how to add separate colours to forum headings?

Re: Random Account Switching

Looks like this topic has now dried up! ... so I sincerely hope that most of you good folks have found answers to your issues. Our last couple of weeks, trying to resolve issues with our host in live chat - well, it's been a comedy of errors. They have no interest in properly investigating issues, t...

Re: Random Account Switching

As well as the focus on "Varnish Cache" and "CloudFlare", I would like to have people experiencing these problems to share (where they can) their own stats. If this is a useful comparison for others, here are some of our web host figures: Disk Space Usage : 11,933.63 MB total disk space used. - keep...

Re: .htaccess and Pages Extension

Sorry if sounds stupidly primitive, but can't you simply add a URL forwarder on the hosting end?
