      Scott Danforth, I’ve frequently been having to login twice in succession to get on, lately, so I guess I’ll soon be catching up to you and your liver in the drinking game.

      I visit a number of other forums that run vBulletin software and they are not hot messes. Everything works, it’s easy to post images, etc. Why does iBoats have such a problem with it?

        Those forums probably didnt drink the vB kool-aid and upgrade to vB5. The trouble really started when they upgraded from vB4.xxx to vB5.

        Been a rollercoaster ever since.

        All attempts to make changes and further updates to the next version of vB5.xx, in the long run, only made it worse...

        IMO, the whole upgrade debacle and subsequent attempts to make improvements that weren't, is a significantly bigger corporate mis-step then Disney failing to expect a demand for baby yoda merch, which was huge. Esp considering its Christmas time.

        But what do I know, I'm a lowly Mod thats kept in the dark w the rest of the mushrooms, or as they're known here: other Mods.

        Hope 2020 sees some significant progress in getting the bilge pumped dry, the ship righted and cruising along w no problems.

          keep in mind, the brilliant minds that came up with VB4 left the company, and the hacks that were left (that had no concept of what they were/are doing came up with VB5..... talk about bloat-ware and incompetence. My guess they came from the MS 10 development team.

            It's really a shame, because it seems that we've lost many regular and valuable contributors who got tired of the glitches and stopped visiting.

            Anyway, you mods really do a good job at keeping this place running smoothly (or as smoothly as the technology allows). Not an easy job, I know...

            Thanks!

                We have an idea, but it isn't prudent to speculate.

                I only found a working forum when a shot glass slipped out of my shaking fingers and bumped the F5 key to refresh.

                        Scott - When did that happen, before or after entering search terms?

                        You know I'm gonna say this - Search is working for me.

                            That search. I looked at the header in your screen cap and Advanced Search is shown above Search Result. No idea.

                            I take it it's working OK now?
