    Wait, you're getting that message every time, even after waiting 10 seconds? I'm not able to duplicate that. Anyone else?

    It never left, it's now under the "search" button.

    Yes, it's every time.

    I have no way to find new posts in this forum interface, either through the Quicklinks or through the Search bar. Though I do see the new tools like the blogs, albums, friends, etc.

    But the offline link I created on my home page works (it ends with "do=getnew")

    Sounds like the same link you would get by clicking the link here at JSF (http://forums.johnstonefitness.com/search.php?do=getnew)

    Please try clearing your cache. I tried three computer, three accounts and three browsers and I simply can't duplicate the problem you are describing. :(

    Yes, that's the same link, and it works in that post, but it wasn't working at the top of the forums.

    I've cleared my browsing history, and it's working fine now. :tu: I just hope I can remember all those passwords it cleared. :doh:

    Glad it's working!

    Simply clearing your cache won't delete your saved passwords. If your passwords are gone, it sounds like you cleaned house in there. :lol:

    The forums were already pretty fast for me before, though they do seem to be a bit snappier now. I didn't seem to have experienced the slowness people are talking about. The only slowness I ever had at JSF was the 1am-PST-lag that also seems to happen every night to several other forums I go to (regardless of what timezones they're in, it's always 1am my time), which lasts anywhere from 5-20 minutes.

    Ah, that's the automated daily backup. The database tables have to be flushed and locked before they can be backed up. When the tables are locked, there can be no access.

    The daily backups will, of course, still happen, but the process will be much quicker than it was the past. A matter of minutes.

    Good grief the forums are a lot faster for me! :tucool:

    Okay I didn't see it in the FAQ (maybe I missed it?), but what file types? Just animated gif files? Or can we do swf/flv or something like that?

    Being the picture whore I am this was the first thing I wanted to hear more about. :D

    I actually never noticed that we couldn't do animated gifs before. I guess that's why my esc button and adblock have been so dusty and idle at JSF. Curiously, I never realized how pleasant and headache free (i.e. animated gif free) the JSF experience was. :lol:

    What's more amazing is that he's a one man operation. No mods or anything. He single handedly mans the ship everyday for years on end. It's awe inspiring. :eek:

    I'm glad everything is running pretty smoothly. :tu:

    Thanks everyone. :)

    Great job John! like others mentioned the response time increase is noticeable. Also some of the new features like the blog and the extra add-ons for the customization of the profile is neat plus there are more features that I haven't even really looked at yet seem neat from the description. I guess I'll have to check it out.

    Thanks :tu:
