What's the point of having a text color function if it doesn't work? I click on it and I get some code:COLOR=#FF00AA][/COLOR

I guess we're supposed to know what to enter to get it to the color we want?

copied this from the trans mod:
I don't want to say it but... SF has ben really slow the past two days. I mean, like a fucking snail's pace. And I have a brand new computer.

The worst part is that it seems like it is all the bells and whistley things that are slowing the site down. The drop down menu takes forever to load, the preview when you hover over titles... those big ads on the right are always the last to load... but the text/thread titles show up immediately.

HOWEVER, because all that other much-maligned crap takes so long to load, you can't get to the forums. Just FYI.

There was a roaming bot. That is why the site seemed to run slowly. FWIW, some of the features are actually meant to let you use the forum faster. For example, the ads load last because there is actually an ad loading delay so that their loading does not delay your ability to use the site. Sorry for the speed issues though.

Cheers,

Fok.

I cleared caches but still have this problem. I am attaching a screenshot. This temporary freeze up makes browsing SF very painful cause it happens every time I am back on the B&S page.

Fok, I keep forgetting to email you the iPhone issues, Im sorry.

However today I encountered a new one - I typed out this extremely long PM, hit submit, the screen darkened as normal, and then popped back to the body of the PM chain as usual - except the message I typed was not there. I tried to reply to a few other PM's after that, and even though every process was the same as ever, nothing goes through. That was kind of annoying.

Hi,

first of all, thanks for a great website I use every day smile.gif

I just wanted to know why I cannot post a classified ?

It says : Your classifieds have been posted. Click Here to see all your open classified listings.
But they're not appearing.

Thank you for your help

It seems that it took some time for the classified to appear...
Sorry

Still happening. Particularly annoying when you are getting PM's about your FS thread and you want to send payment information ASAP.

Also, a few times I looked at the main page and there were these giant ads for Zulily, promoting shoes for moms, babies, and kids, and another one for Clotilde, who makes some really uhoh.gif looking women's Moroccan sandals. Whats up with the ads that have nothing to do with us?

If you are logged out, you probably got some wierd ad fill. We are culling that. If that comes up, if you could actually click through and send me the URL, I'll get ad campaigns that have nothing to do with us gone! Zulily is not a bad place to get kids stuff though - personal experience. But yeah, has nothing to do with Styleforum. Re. the PM, are you using Tapatalk (which has no decent PM functionality, AFAIK) or the native smartphone browser?

Cheers,

Fok.

FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUU.

It's just me on duty this week, so solutions to technical problems may be reported back more slowly than any of us would like. What is your OS, and are you running any sort of adblock or no-script?

Cheers,

Fok.

Yeah, I was logged out, and I just saw it come up. Ill send you the link next time I log out, which will most likely be December or so. laugh.gif

I do not have Tapatalk, just Safari on iPhone.

This is a strange one now - When I use the "last post" option to go to MC WAYWRN, either from the home page or the MC forum, it crashes my system and won't let me open it. Are you guys trying to tell me something? patch[1].gif

lol. Um, well, it's Labor Day, so nearly anyone involved in labor is not doing any, but I'll ask about this tomorrow.

I don't know if it's been mentioned but messaging with android/ dolphin browser is broken.

Edit: now on pc. Writing replies in threads is fine, but when you try to pm someone on android/ dolphin, the popbox shimmers and moves about, it generally appears in the bottom right corner - you see the top left corner of it and when you drag it to the centre, it bounces back down. The submit button (or whatever it is) also doesn't really work.

The only color I have used is red so I just looked up the hex number for it here. For example, If you want red, instead of the pink that the text color button defaults to, just change COLOR=#FF00AA to COLOR=#FF0000 (that is zero zero, not O O).

Thanks,

Fok.

This thread is for technical issues only. Suggestions for *specific* new functions can also be posted here. I cannot guarantee that they will be implemented, but we are listening.

Hello, LA Guy

I just came back to SF after being away for a couple of weeks. I really missed the site but it was making me crazy. (It was just too slow, etc etc etc) However, I cautiously came back since yesterday, and I want to thank you and the crew for making it MUCH better (better = faster). It is still slower than the old site, but you guys have done some good things since I have been away. So - thank you all, and keep up the good work.
