Starting today, when I go to Active Topics in Quick links, I don't see anything newer than yesterday midday unless I login. Once I login, I see several new posts from today. I'm used to having to login to post, but not just to view posts.

If you don't log in, how would the forum know what was new since your last log in? There have been changes on the forum but I'm not sure this is one of 'em. Maybe that changed but I haven't noticed the issue you speak of here.

I'm not sure how it USED to work, but it always knew what I opened on my last visit, even though I only ever logged in when I wanted to post.

Mysterious....the workaround is just to stay logged in all the time.

I disagree. Log in while you are on the site and log out before you close the tab/window. Maybe I'm just old fashioned.... But other than two places I NEVER keep tabs/windows active. Those two sites are pretty cool - I have no worries. Many of you have one of 'em active, probably right now.

The HTTPS site only allows, last time I looked, up to ~50KB attachment size -- laughable! Maybe it will get fixed at some point -- the insecure site allows attachments at least up to 2MB.

You can post the larger attachments on the insecure site and then everybody can read and download them from the secure site.

OK, I'm hesitant to give more info here lest I be called names!
Firstly I believe the site is still hosted with GoDaddy ..............
So, the following info may fall on deaf ears...

Similar problem with solution...

Hello again, I contacted my server host to find out if they could check the log files for me and give them the info you supplied, within moments they not only checked the logs but also increased the memory limit and upload max size for the domain, I then checked and its all now working finally

Great news. If you don't mind checking, what is the PHP Info page showing for the value of memory_limit now? We weren't focusing on that setting in the earlier discussion, so I don't know if we know what the value was earlier. But that's just for curiosity's sake.

This "makes sense", because of the settings mentioned, memory_limit is the one has the best possibility for explaining "there was an HTTP 500 status when the attachment exceeded a certain size." Because PHP execution failed by bumping into the memory_limit, even though a post and a file upload of that size was permitted by plupload, PHP, and phpBB.

Thanks for the additional info. Crazy to think that if the value was actually 45MB before, that just a 1.2MB file had ended up being "too large." But could certainly be some other variables in play. Bottom line is, glad you got it solved!

I didn't understand any of "the following info", but maybe someone at OB will!
I'm just using the insecure site for now -- I hope they don't eliminate it before fixing the attachment size problem in the secure version.

Dang, it happened again. Posting to a thread with content, history and data it was an hour+ or so before I completed the draft response. Personally I had to do some tasks, chores etc. Then I was happy and the the SUBMIT. Then I was logged out and went to the login page. I was so pissed I walked away. I should've just back stepped the page back and cut and pasted but I killed it. I was pissed. I lost the cache.

Why is there such a short session time? Gosh, replying to a something here, does one have to do it off line and copy and paste? I don't think it is a browser issue... why only here?

Funny you mention that. I've started composing my posts in Text Edit after having lost many paragraphs a few times (unless it's just a one-line response which even I could probably remember!) It's easier to do offline for me -- I can set the font to 18 pt while I'm writing, for one thing :grin: ...
