Is there something odd going on with the forum?

I log on each time I visit, (password / username remembered by Firefox) and since the new server, I have to log on twice. Also I notice that the read/unread threads indicator is not working. Has it been turned off?

It's working fine for me. I've had a couple problems since the migration but not those.

There have been some strange things going on since the migration. For me, they're all gone now, but I've heard reports from people just checking in for the first time that they can't login, etc. I'm not sure what's causing the problems. If you continue to experience problems, please let me know...

I'm getting a problem where I click on the little part of an orange title of a post that brings me to the newest unread messages, but then I am sent to a page that says "no unread messages"... even though there are!

It has been happening all week, including just now.l

I'm still having the same problems, even using a different browser / computer / IP address.

This same thing happens every time I visit the forums. When I first arrive at the forums (http://forums.getrichslowly.org/index.php) the forums with new posts are highlighted in orange. I click on any given forum and it lists all threads, with the threads with new posts again being highlighted. I then click on a thread w/ new posts and there are no longer any new post highlights on any page, including the thread I am now on. My guess is my last visit date is getting set to the current time when I access a post.

I am using Firefox 2.0.0.7

I'll try to do some reading on this subject over the weekend. While I've been blogging for a long time, and can diagnose some blog-related issues, I have little experience with forums. They're a mystery!

It actually seems to be working now. This is quite strange.

It comes and goes.

What is normally happening for me is

1. I go to the login page and login as normal
2. I get a whitescreen with a little text at the tope saying that its redirecting me
3. I get to the forum index page but I am not logged in
4. I go to the login page and login as normal
5. I get a whitescreen with a little text at the tope saying that its redirecting me
3. I get to the forum index page. I am logged in, no threads are marked as unread even when they should be.

Its starting to annoy me now. :evil:

Still, hopefully it'll improve at some point.

I'll forward this thread to a couple of people who might be able to provide an answer. I wonder if it has something to do with permissions...

I do. After the first few days I had no problems and I've viewed it from at least 1/2 dozen IP addys (though always with the same computer.
