Dear WHF Team. I am still experiencing problems even with placing a couple of posts today owing to the lack of tab/buttons to do this so I am having to guess where they are.

The most common error for this page is "Tiny MCE" is undefined on Line 329, Char is 1, Code is 0,URL: http://community.whathifi.com/forums/addpost.aspx?Forum|D=34

Again photos not showing or emoticons just red crosses and very slow refresh rate when logged in. Just an update on what I have e-mailed to Andy Clough.

Re: Technical Problems

Last night (Friday 3rd about 2330) I sat down with my laptop, beer and my headphones on and the whole site went down. I ended up trying another forum instead Tongue Tied I have also been finding that to post and log on I have to click the red 'post' button two or three times.

Re: Technical Problems

Hi,

Drink and operating equipment - can lead to nasty results.

Too much drink can give the illusion that there's 2 or 3 red 'post' buttons - perhaps you just hit the wrong one?!? Lol.

Cheers,

Cofnchtr.

Re: Technical Problems

Yes, there was an outage late last night. Haven't heard back from our digital people what the cause was.

Thanks again Andrew. See Cofnchtr, I wasn't drunk after all. Though I did feel a little unwell after straying onto the HiFi Choice discussion forum Ick!

Re: Technical Problems

And can I say what an excellent service it is. I prefer the white background of this forum to the blue that is used everywhere else I have looked. Type and pictures look better here than anywhere else, quotes are easier to follow and now I am into the swing of using the message tool bar very good fun as well.

Re: Technical Problems

Tried using System Restore but this has still not resolved the problems I am still having with this site. I shall now patiently wait for WHF Tech Team

Re: Technical Problems

Hi, Anyone getting search errors, using IE7, on Vista, not logged in when doing search, doesn't seem to matter thought, sometimes it works others error as below:



Server Error in '/' Application.



Runtime Error


Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".





<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="Off"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>


Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.





<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<configuration>
<system.web>
<customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Re: Technical Problems

From 2200 today I am not receiving any error messages and the whole page has downloaded correctly including post tab.  Have WHF Tech Team sorted my account?
