Title: Can't post or reply
Post by: morticaixavier on February 21, 2013, 05:55:22 PM
If this works at all then I am not sure what is going on, but when I try to post on my pc (most recent version of ie) it gives an ere saying my session has timed out. Also this morning the my replies and recent unread buttons are not working.

Seems to be working now. Temporary glitch?

Happened to me earlier too.

It's been happening to me . . . couldn't even log out.  I had to clear my history, log out, log in, and now this post will hopefully go through . . .

Happened to me too. I'm on a different computer now, so I don't know if it is fixed on the other.

So that explains it. I was having trouble earlier as well.

Me too! I just posted on another thread about it. Sorry about the hijack on that one, but this thread didn't appear in my "unread" page. Not that I'm surprised. However, during the troubled period I was unable to post while there were others that were able to post- so it wasn't universal.

Here's a pic for posterity:

Same thing is happening to me.

Edit - Okay, that one went through but I'm sporadically experiencing the same issues as everyone else.  "Session verification failed."  I've tried it on both IE and Firefox and get the same thing.

 :D.

Happened to me this evening. 

Yea, right now.  I hit post and get this error:

The following error or errors occurred while posting this message:

Your session timed out while posting. Please try to re-submit your message.

Imma hit post a few more times...

I had the same thing happen yesterday and clearing my cookies fixed it.  I don't know if that's a universal solution.  I just heard from AHA IT that they're well aware of the issue and hard at work on a fix.

Testing, testing.....Could it be fixed...this was the first time it accepted my password properly in 24 hours....

All better now. Thanks IT people. A day without the forum is almost as bad as a day without beer.

Looks like it!

Testing.... If this works, it's like the 15th try in the past 36 hours.  And who knows how many other people have been trying to post error messages to you but they couldn't!  Probably tons.

I haven't had any more problems today so maybe it's fixed.

Still got me this morning.
Title: Re: Can't post or reply
Post by: euge on February 23, 2013, 04:22:26 PM
Just happened to me again. I don't think its cookies but the forum software. Not fixed. Not by any means.

Agree that it's not fixed.  The irony for me is I was just trying to post the following...

Yep, got me again as well.

Post by: james on February 24, 2013, 04:29:13 PM
Testing also.  I tried posting a few times yesterday and had no luck.  I'm guessing it is still broken since the number of new posts is a lot lower than normal

I keep getting this when I'm on my PC. Running chrome.

I'm sorry about the problem, everybody.  Hopefully the IT people can get back on it tomorrow.

Just found this thread.  I thought I was the only one!  Seems to be fixed now.

I'm having the problem too, but only with Chrome. Firefox seems to be working.

Test test test. Sibilance, sibilance.

The forum seems to be going in and out from what people have been saying. I am bringing this up with the tech folk to see what they have to say. Apologies for the PITA.

Cheers,
Duncan

edit: Completely closing out of my browser has helped a bit. Restarting the computer even more so. These obviously aren't ideal solutions (or solutions at all), but a temporary option for the meantime. I will report back when I hear from the web team.

edit2: The web team is in contact with the server person. Stay tuned.

Server updates caused issues.  IT team working on it.

As Denny mentioned, the issue is being attributed to a server update. The forum and HomebrewersAssociation.org log in should now be back to normal. Thanks for hanging in there!

Cheers,
Duncan
