Found where the issue is in the code. The problem actually occurs more frequently with the more pics you've viewed. Looks like just some inefficient coding. I should be able to implement a fix for this.
Pick one: 1) It's not my fault  2) I wasn't there  3) You have no witnesses  4) It would have happened on it's own anyway.

Just implemented a fix. Didn't seem to break anything, but I don't have a long list of already-viewed pics, so I would appreciate some feedback.

Great news - the fix appears to work correctly! I would also echo what some others have reported - the unviewed button is working MUCH faster than it has for years (at least as long as the new archive has been in existence). Thanks!

The fix seemed to work for a while, but I'm starting to see a lot of lag in loading pages again.  I don't know if it's the same issue or not, but the effect at this end seems to be the same.

There was a forced update to the SQL server at approximately 4 PM Eastern on August 22, 2016.

Whether or not this helps with page loads... We'll see.

I guess this is technically an issue. When searching the image gallery, I ran into this message:

"Search string is too small needs to be greater than three characters."

I was searching for the keyword "pet", something I would think would yield at least a few results. I can see preventing searches for two letter words, but I can think of at least a few three letter words that make quite fitting keywords to search for:

Pet
Own
Cum
Sex
Lab
Dom
Sub

Might be worth an adjustment to allow searches for 3 letter words.

I took a look in the Gallery settings and I can't locate anything to change the minimum length search. I don't think that's connected with SMF's main setting, but I'll look into this further...

Hi,
I may of damaged the thread for the game 'A Spell for All V14'
http://www.hypnopics-collective.net/smf_forum/index.php?topic=21244.0

I was posting earlier and my internet went out and while trying to address the problem I probably refrshed the posting page,. Still the last page in the thread 51 just opens a blank page for me now
http://www.hypnopics-collective.net/smf_forum/index.php?topic=21244.2000
The previous pages open fine, attempting to post another reply also opens a blank page

Thanks, I created a new thread and was re-posting a status type update to note the issue and what I was originally trying to say when the old thread died.

The new thread is now dead in the exact same way!!!

I posted and it was fine. I attached a couple of images I was planning to add to the game, and the thread is now dead in the same way. It must be something to do with these images somehow blocking the thread.

I will create ANOTHER new thread and never try posting those images again!

Issue appears to be the attached files are so large that the software can't make the thumbnails it needs to.

I'm working on a fix for the threads.

In theory the search should be back to normal after being restricted for a little while...

The search index needs a search table and ours needed a reworking. That took, because of not wanting to overload the server, about two weeks to do.

The search should be back to normal. but if there's issues. please let me know?

I cannot see any posts discussing this.

I get quite regularly issues opening the forum or posting replies an "Internal Server Error", error code 500, a generic error message.

Possibly these are server loading issues, and I have often found it quite slow to initially open the forum.

Things are working ok, it is just sometimes I get the error posting and have to re-post again or check if the post actually did work.

I doubt it matters, but I am running Window 10 (32 bit), fully updated using the latest version of FireFox as my primary browser, and running the free version of AVG Antivirus.

It's an ongoing issue we are trying to track, no resolution as yet, this has been gong on for some time and the problem is trying to narrow down what is overloading the server.

Still looking...

The problem is that, more than anything, it is very random and that makes it hard to find. There's no rhyme or reason to when it happens as well.

Still, I'll keep poking at this and see what I come up with...

I'm newish to using a forum style posting system, so if this doesn't go where I think it should, or work the way I think it suppose to I'm very sorry.
I'm a long time lurker/occasional poster on the old galleries, but over the last few days I've started to notice that this site takes forever to load, and sometimes I can't get images to load at all. I just get a blank screen. I don't think it's on my end, as it's only this site, but I thought I'd report it. Sorry to bother.

It's perfectly fine, please don't be worried about posting here...

The issue is somewhere in our server, and there's a good possibility that when people are searching the New Gallery it's causing the slow down, but there's no evidence to support this exactly...

The problem is that looking over the server logs, there's nothing that points to what causes the overload and that's the thing we're trying to overcome.

Both myself and our hosting have been trying to figure this out for some time now, and I hope there will be a resolution to the issue in time...

Noticed a minor issue that showed up recently.

When trying to use the buttons for various commands (Bold, Color's etc) on a new line, they seem to jump one line up.
B

For example, the [ b ] there was supposed to be directly above this line and not directly below the line above.

It's very minor, but a bit irritating!

Almost every page on the site loads incredibly slowly much of the time, and sometimes, it doesn't load at all, instead producing a 500 error:
Code: [Select]
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@hypnopics-collective.net and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

The long load times also happen to post previews sometimes, like on this post.

The spammer levels are still pushing against things, it's happening a lot that within a minute there's 145 antispam checks going on and account creations being denied. When that happens, the site goes offline for a moment or slows to a crawl.

I've gotten into the habit of copying my posts before posting them, in case things go wrong, as a stopgap measure...

That said, I'm looking for another method of pushing the spam checks off the server to lighten that load to something more reasonable.

There are other options, which would cost more per month, but I'm negotiating something on that... We'll see if things work out or not...

Hi

Since the website cam back up after what must have been a nightmare weekend for Tera. When I bring up the forum gallery page it no longer fits on the page. The backgound image seems fine but the actuall images carry on off the edge of the page so I have to scroll to see the fourht image in each line.

This is the same on my chromebook via chrome and on my windows laptop via firefox.

Thank you

This issue happens when there's a lot of wide thumbnails on a page...

Going to the next page of images fixes the issue because there's less far too wide thumbnails for the overall width of things.

The fix would be to cut the preview thumbnails in size, but they are pretty small.

As an experiment, I've changed the gallery from four images wide to three, comments are welcome.
