    Okay, I went over and finally posted in 'Products'-subforum!

    ...I was doing something productive, actually! In case all the posters/readers want to follow my reply, here it is: http://www.vdrums.com/forum/forum/ge...516#post972516


    Happy to report 'Products' is working again! TY everybody!

    It appears I am getting some things worked out slowly by just trying various code editing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    I am monitoring everyone's responses and actions, but trying not to allude too much to what I am doing. I don't know whether to expect some fixes to stick or not at times. I can't tell if running maintenance tools are simply short-term fixes or not.

    I've done some server side changes that seemed to have helped; but again, I'm not sure if they truly did or not.

    There are very strange things going on. (way too many to mention) I just keep plugging away trying to flip the right switches. I think in time things will slowly get back to normal, but I do know that vB has us at the mercy.

    At this time, things are (I'd say) 90% functional. That said, it's ridiculous that I have to enter the admin panel every day or two just to clear the server cache or run maintenance in hopes of fixing one more person's issue. It's not a big deal, but vB sucks big fat donkey balls. (that last part enhanced for professional purpose)

    Thanks Cheddies!
    I'm applying 'them tactics' already since half a year!

    That's not to say though it has solved much...

    HM - if you get a saved reply that won't go through, its always worth copying it out into a plain text editor (such as notepad / textedit) to ensure all weird formatting or characters are stripped and refreshing the page and trying again - as this -might- strip out something that it is not liking.

    Well... yeah okay. This was never to blame our Administrator or to talk him down. I have nothing but respect for Alan, he is both a helluva Administrator and very talented businessman!

    It's just that I have many replies stored that didn't go through. If I tell you that one of these was to one of your own threads, will you change your mind?

    Coming in unexpectedky must make for some awkward moments.

    There's a double meaning in here somewhere. I suddenly feel the need to wash my hands, bbl.
