Now, each time I close my browser I am being logged off. I have been logged on for over a year and all of a sudden, this site starts logging me off each time I leave.... Before, really up until yesterday, I was able to come directly to the site and post without having to log in. So much for that.....
For the forum index, there is a patch being uploaded soon that should improve things a bit. Don't have a solid timeline
brob, for you logged off each time: What browser are you using?
I am using Chrome. I logged in 4 times clicking remember me all 4 times and it's finally stuck. Although for a while it was going to a blank white page with blue colored links to each part ofb the site instead of the home page. Although now I am back to being logged in and the site showing that there are no new posts.....
".....patch being uploaded soon that should improve things a bit"
Is that also the answer to, "....and tell me again how you expect to grow and keep your membership by prioritizing non-logged in members and visitors out of an up-to-date forum index"?
The patch was implemented yesterday now.
Let us know if you're still seeing current issues.
Still experiencing the same thing. Coming to the page and it shows new topics or posts in forums that have none or it shows no new topics or posts in forums that do. Sometimes going to the top a clicking on "forum" again helps, sometimes it doesn't.
Seems like that update was not related to this.
As we noted, with regards to threads not updating when you're logged out.
We recently added Cloudflare to the site to provide an optimum experience for users for both site speed and security.
This programme prioritizes users who are logged in first so visitors to the site won't see the most up to date content. I'd say that's what's going on here.
A quick peek at some of your other "outdoor" forums/websites, with similar annoying happenings, lends itself to suggesting you should perhaps replace some of your 200 or so employees, who seem to spend too much time trying to justify their presence, with people who understand how to "hear" what users are saying, and subsequently "fix" the annoying operating features.
As the saying goes, "you can't please all of the people, all of the time", but you could surely do better.
