I too have had insufficient permission to the site at times while logged in. 

Then again, I have insufficient permission to a lot of things in life that I feel I should have access to...Evil Smile

New look to the site this morning! Kinda weird, but it is different. So far, it is working faster, at least for me....a work in progress, no doubt!

 It seems faster because it is...for now. Once the sponsor ads/banner go up, page load time will increase slightly. There are a few new features, too..look around, see what you can see.





This is the second time I wrote this....got that med "Access Denied" message the first time, and since I thought that had been fixed, I dint "Copy" my post....

I really hope you're kidding.

If not, do you have any idea how long you took to write it before you hit the post button? (You didn't walk away and come back, did you?)

Not kiddin at all. It took me maybe 1 minute to type that out, and hit "Post Reply"....I was logged in on both sides....or at least it SHOWED me to be logged in.
I was not on any other sites at that time...no multiple windows open. Just logged in, and typed in my reply.

 It's actually the first time I've been spanked in a week or more, too.

I'm sure all of that kind of stuff is gonna be a temporary deal. Once the bugs Adam is chasing are found/fixed/given up on, he'll have time to fine-tune everything. It's a work in progress.
Thanks for the hard work, Boss!

I got the e-mail, Joel, that still doesn't mean I didn't freak out. I knew it wasn't GONE, but if you can't use it, it is gone. I did go to the Oriole game tonight (I'm a glutton for punishment, aren't I?).

I haven't quite fixed the problem, but I've added something that I think should help prevent people form losing their posts.  

If you've ever noticed on the message form, to the left of the post button, every few seconds you'll see a little moving circle.  That is supposed to be keeping your connection to the site alive while you enter your post.  However, at exactly 10 minutes (if you're just sitting on the page, or typing the post in, but haven't clicked any buttons yet) that little circle will change to a message that says "Error connecting to server."  It is at this point, while that message is displayed, if you click the "Post" button, you will receive the Access Denied message and your post will be gone.

What I've done is added code that will disable the "Post" button (so you can not accidentally submit your post while the connection is lost) and the message will say "Error connecting to server. Try clicking Preview button, then wait about 15 seconds, to reconnect."  In my testing, it seems that if you click the preview button, it will show a preview of your post and reconnect to the server.  The "Post" button will then become enabled and you should be able to click it, your post will save and you will not lose it.

I'm curious, though if any of you ever see this "Error connecting to server message" BEFORE 10 minutes have passed.  If you care to test it, open a New post, reply or quick reply page... type the current time in the message box so you don't forget what time you started this test.  Then wait.  Keep your eye on the little circle next to the Post button.  Does it ever change to the "Error" message?  If so, how long has it been since you typed the time into the message box? 10 minutes? More? Less?  Let me know.

Thanks!

(Interestingly, as I type this, I've received the message. I think it was 10 minutes, but I'm not sure.)

I've never actually timed it, but I can assure you it has appeared for me a way less than 10 minutes. I have seen the "Loading" text in that same spot, when it comes up every few seconds.

Then again... Angry
 Immediately after posting this, I went in to Edit the post...and got the "Error Connecting to Server" message. This happens within SECONDS. Let's see if this one goes thru, cause I gotta git back to werk...It did NOT dis-able the Post button, either.

Joel,
What color was the "Error connecting to server" message? Red or Black? Did it also say "Try clicking the preview button..." or just "Error connecting to server?"

What browser? Firefox, I'm guessing.

I just loaded up firefox, and I can tell already the button disabling is working. I wonder if you need to clear your cache.

So Adam,
you are asking me to wait and watch for ten or more minutes of my life that I cant get back! LOL


Actually I have never seen the circle before today. Maybe I just never noticed it, but now I see it for a brief second about every 30 seconds. I dont think I had that before?
I typed a message back that I let sit for 16 minutes and everything worked fine.
Nice job, now if I could only get those 16 minutes back!
Rodney
