The Forum has been restored!
« on: March 24, 2019, 01:45:22 pm »

Hey folks!

A couple of weeks ago, we experienced a major problem when switching to a new server and upgrading the forum. Thanks to backups and outside help, we were able to restore it.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Still some work to be done to clean it up and we might experience some errors.

Please report of any finding on this thread.

Thanks Marshall for all your hard work!

\my first order of business is to download all my contact data to my local machine , copy, archive , back it up, and print out hardcopy to be bound in a ledger LOL.

Thanks so much, I was pining away for lack of communicating with all the folks here on CAS City!

I thank you as well for the work that you put into this. When the site is down, I get confused. What am I supposed to DO all day?

At last, and thank you. When I clicked on I thought I'd gotten The Open Range, with their color scheme and everything. They're right next to each other in my favorites. I did like the color scheme of the old CAS City though.

Glad to see we're back.

The forum theme, color etc.... is still a work in progress.

We decided to get the forum back as quickly as we could with the default layout.

Next step is to make the forum secure with SSL and then we start working on the blog section and final layout.

Thanks from south-central Ne Mexico, Marshall. So relieved to see it back up and running with new and improved software. Gave me a pretty good scare!

Just thought that I?d mention that my apostrophe key on my iPad becomes a question mark when ever I use it here. Didn?t do it before. And doesn?t do it anywhere else. Also there were some weird things at the beginning and end of my There is no horse comment that I went to my psge and deleted but I see the same on other members posts. Otherwise the new and improved forum looks good. Like the new Marlin forum too. Doesn?t do it when I type it but when I hit post or save the apostrophes change.

There used to be a way to look at past posts for a profile.  I understand there will probably no way to recover the old  posts, but was wondering if there would be a way to back check posts since the recovery.  Great job on having the data you did and the speed with which you put it all back together!

Ross,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "look at past posts". I would claim that all forum posts since 2004 are still here. Latest stats show 614696 Posts in 48084 Topics by 10687 Members. If you can give me an example, I can do some checking for you.

On the member profile page there was an option to see ( think it was "Latest Posts") from member.  If this isn't available in this format I'm fine.  I just used to use it to check up on my Alzheimer's  ::) to see if I had already posted something on a topic.

Just found what I looking for (sorta).  If I click on a member other than myself it shows under the "Summary Profile" as "Show Posts".  If I bring up my own profile I can't find that option.

The problem is when I select my own profile there is no "Show Posts" option.

Ross, you are correct. Looks like regular members cannot open their own summary page. I have reported this so hopefully we can get this fixed soon.

Ross, we may have solved the problem. It was a permission issue. Try again to see if you can see your profile summary with "Show Posts" on the left hand side of the page.

Nope.  When I click on my icon in a post it give me the Edit Profile page, instead of the Summary page.  I do get the Summary page when I click on any other icon.  I even logged out and back in just the make sure I picked up the new permissions.
