What happened to the thingys on the bottom of the screen after you post that let you hop from forum to forum? (like Toddlers to TAO?) They disappeared halfway through my visit tonight....I LIKE THOSE< where are they?!
lovin DH since 1/04, best mom for my 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), one 13 wk (10/13) and 5/15 just your average multigenerational living family!!
When we have a lot of traffic - lots of members online at once - the server load gets intense and slows things down. Forumjump and Currently Active Users are two features that add heavily to the server load. Disabling those at high traffic times reduces that load and prevents a server crash. It's just a temporary measure to help the server. Our other option would be to limit the number of users allowed at one time, which we prefer to not have to resprt to.
An alternative when this is happening: open the forums homepage in one window and right click to open forums as you desire, leaving the forums homepage window always open to return to and use as a temporary forumjump page.
Yes, that does work, but my ancient computer barely runs this forum as it is. Multiple windows open eat up its fragile memory. Is there any chance this is going to be fixed, or is it a permanent result of the last upgrade?
