Please report anything odd after the recent server update

Please tell us about anything odd that you notice; we've upgraded the server, and it mostly seems to have gone smoothly, but there may be things that we've missed.

Thanks,

Jeff

Time/Date stamp does not match when searching

I've noticed when searching that some posts on the search list will be near the top (most recent), and say, for example: that so and so posted 7 minutes ago. Go to that post and you see the last post by that person was one week ago. Or two weeks. So Search results show one thing but the thread shows an old post.

This has happened for a while now, maybe four months. I thought someone would catch it. I guess so few use this way of seeing new posts ... maybe no one noticed? Or perhaps its done on purpose for some reason?

No big deal, just thought the web masters might want to know.

Thanks! It's amazing what people don't notice, and then when they do assume we know, or someone else has let us know... and they haven't....

Noted, and we'll look into it - anyone else note anything similar?

ta, Grant

Hmm ... yep, your emoticons look fine ... and so did mine when I first posted them. But now the bottom two s are showing HTML code along with the image.

This random code is what i've seen on a few posts on the site. On your computer do all my Emoticons look OK? Just curious.

Maybe its just my system?

very curious - you're still the author of that document so should be able to edit it, as long as you're logged in.

Please check again making sure you're logged in, and send me an email.

Emoticons fixed a while ago. Curious conflicts in naming!

That will be Ubuntu/Firefox then - I've noticed that before - you just have to up the font size. In Firefox, Hold down the ctrl key and tap the + key and the font size will change instantly. Ctrl 0 (zero) resets it to standard default.

Thanks, it does not seem to happen on most sites... I deliberately run at t a relatively low resolution to get bigger than average typeface on my 22" screen. Was using firefox in win xp ( at same resolution.) but is seems to treat some websites diferently.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
