As you may know, this website has experienced many small outages over the past two months.
I have now migrated the website onto an AWS Linux cloud infrastructure. This platform should provide a lot of scope to scale up or out as needed, as well as being more cost-effective.
Historically, the website was served out of the US, which is a long way away for the predominantly NZ audience. It now lives in Sydney, Australia, which is a lot closer to home.
As the migration has required a very substantial amount of application code rewriting, there may be some bugs. Please let me know if anything is not working. Fixing these up is priority work.
Thank you for your forbearance.
The previously fixed problem of pictures showing as grey boxes is still a problem fof me (Samsung browser Ver 184.108.40.206)
Not related to the migration but not fixed by it either 🤔
That'll learn ya, gaiters, for changin' ya avatar 😁. Mine is OK but can't access the profile either - generates the following error : The key [USER] does not exist in the request scope.
Here are a few more :
1. (many) pictures also not loading (ie showing as grey boxes) in Chrome and FF on Win10 PC
2. Clicking an 'alert' link on a photo page (eg Cobb Valley 16432) crashes with error : *Can't cast Complex Object Type Struct to String*
3. Clicking on a user link when not logged in crashes with error : *component [whio.models.anonymoususer] has no function with name [canMailRecipient]*
If not logged in, clicking on a username link (eg Matthew - top left of your previous post), it crashes out to an unmanaged error.
On the contrary (still not logged in), clicking on @username does work (and takes you to the user's page) eg @bernieq works.
