Could you describe a bit more about what is happening? What style/theme you are using as well??

I'm using FECC-Modern, Jordan. By the way, by trying to post a reply I just received two nice error messages:

a) This page does not work www.elvis-collectors.com is currently unable to process this request. HTTP ERROR 500

and b)


Does that mean anything to you? Maybe it helps.

By the way, am I just plainly dumb or is there that "Quick Reply" field only now? I don't like it to have to click on "Full Editor & Preview" all the time just to get me my Smilies :D
Just a remark, no criticism - as usual, my friend.

Hi!
Those two errors mentioned are due to some background cleanup I was doing.
Just hit the "quote" " icon next to each post to go directly to the full editor.

Hi Trevor.
All seems to be ok now. There appears to have been issues with the Tapatalk service earlier which they have fixed.

Hi Trevor,
When you say it's not allowing you, does it have a specific error? I'm posting from Tapatalk and a few other members have today also. Is your device android or Apple?

Is it Control + F5 that clears the cache? If so give it a go if you haven't already, then close the browser(s) down and then re-open.

It's quck and easy to do, not guaranteeing anything, but not much to lose.

Hi Trevor!
Sorry to still hear you are having issues with tapatalk.
Whilst, there are, indeed permissions settings on our end for the forum - they are just for the web forum. And not a set of settings for tapatalk. I did my due diligence anyway and looked at your permissions settings on our end and everything appears the way it should.
In deducing the "guts" of the issue, which shows me that it is an app issue with tapatalk, you are able to perform the actions via your browser that tapatalk is claiming you do not have permissions to perform.
What may be beneficial at this point is to clear the app cache for tapatalk as seen here:

Jordan, from time to time my "your posts" doesn't get updated. I just wanted to check out answers from my yesterday's emissions but couldn't find them in the "your posts" section. I remembered at least one comment and checked out the topic and the comment is still there. This happened before but I was thinking then: no biggie, it will be fixed. But since it happened again now I decided to let you know.

Hi!
The search/my posts/my topics areas are updated every 15 minutes (most of the time sooner) via the Sphinx search backend. How old is the submission in question that didn't get indexed?

I am making a giant :facep: :facep: right now.
There was some human error involved in why content hasn't been properly indexed since the last minor update a few days ago.
But rest assured, it is fixed now. :face_with_monocle:

Thank you, and everyone else who has submitted bug reports. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Without you guys, the board wouldn't run as smoothly as it does. And I do sincerely mean that.

Does that small display of the page in the middle only remain this way now? I refuse to wear glasses.
