Hi guys

I am hoping to identify who else is getting logged out as often as I do, since the upgrade.

If you’ve never been logged out (against your will) put NEVER

If it still happens ... put Occasionally

If you were logged out initially, but now have it fully rectified, put Occassionally but now OK!

If it is still happening on a regular basis, out Regularly

If, like me, you are logged out without notice every time you are on the forum, even just going from one topic to the next ,,.... put ALL THE TIME!

Had entry issues a few times as upgrade was happening, but after that completed log-in is all good as in past.

Only fault now seems to be the Search feature not working properly.

All the time when going from menu item to topic or back etc etc. When I hit post a reply, I need to log in again. Just like you, I am getting frustrated.

Yep, just happened to me again, to reply to your answer, kkw! :grr:

Dodge (and everyone else) - can you pass the word around to all your kfdu mates - get them to log in & go thru a few posts (even in not writing anything) to see if THEY get logged out from one area to the next? Cos that is what is happening to me!!

We need a really broad range of people giving it a go for a more accurate poll.

I think that some just don't bother any more, as it is annoying them SO Much! :?:

cheers

Paddling against what seems to be the tidal flow of disgruntled KFDU members, I had the problem for at least six months before the forum upgrade. Even typing a few quick words and attempting to post resulted in logout. I haven;t had the issue since the upgrade.

Check your retained PMs. The PMs I retained for information in the previous version of the forum all disappeared after the upgrade.

Search should be repairable by the Admins. Information are there. I suspect they only need to re-index the forum so it appears in search (but phbb may work different to other databases). Meanwhile, use a Google search as follows, entering your search term as follows

Site:.kfdu.com.au {your search word/s}

The result may not get all mentions but should pick up where the words appear in the subject.

Example search for 'brag paddle'

Steve I have never deleted PMs, once read I just let it overflow to auto empty, box is marked as !00% full, oldest messages there is 15 October 2016 being marked PM #50 of 50,

Also saved Bookmarks back to 2009 which is oldest and they are also still saved and links work as before

An interesting thing I discovered today is that I use an IMAC at home on IINET server which has no problems (broardband). I was on KFDU today on an IPAD using the shops OPTUS server and I was getting logged out, right, left, and centre (not broardband). Both machines using safari engines.
Maybe a server or broardband thing perhaps?
I don't know..... Just an observation, for what it's worth.

Cheers, BobbyB.

Hi BobbyB

I am all 'mac' person as well ..... iPad, Macbook Pro and desktop computer - and being logged out all the time on all of them, posting, going from one window to the next .... all on safari.


I am on broadband - and it has all only happened since the upgrade - so really can't blame anything else. Was logged out just now, trying to reply to this post and will copy this answer before I post it, in case I lose it ..... again!!

cheers

Roberta

Still have all my saved messages, too, Steve

So, that's possibly one more inconsistent glitch in the new phbb. Possibly some users lost data in the change while others did not?

Windows is notoriously bad at cleaning up after itself (I found over 20gb of temp files left over after running a process once). I suspect Mac may not be a lot better.

Use your browsers options to clear cache and cookies first and close your browser (and other programs) before the following:

Macs should run maintenance scripts overnight but these may be scheduled at a time you have your machine off and not run. Follow the 'The Terminal Way' instructions on the following website:
http://thexlab.com/faqs/maintscripts.html
If you look at the section after, you can see how to check when your Mac last ran scripts automatically.

I'm not sure if the scripts pick up the works but you could try cleaning up your caches and temporary files this way, as well http://osxdaily.com/2017/04/18/clean-ca ... files-mac/

Steve

On my windows desk top I made sure I was on https://www.kfdu.com.au/forum and then cleared my cache and it works fine with the exception every now and then I am asked to log in but the remember me function works and my username and password are there so its no big deal. Ipad and iPhone are another world and while I am sure if I devoted the time I could sort it out I will leave it to a rainy day.
