    Enquiring minds would like to hear all the grisly details of the Philadelphia Speaks outage. Oh, and welcome back!

    Easy fix - an obsolete plugin. XenForo has been rock solid since install a few yrs ago.

    It was only half out. If you had the link to say the new posts, it worked fine. It was very odd seeing new message knowing that people couldn't come in the front door to add them. Interesting to see what people must have bookmarked.

    I noticed that and also that you could get into old threads via google search. That's the one great advantage of traditional forums versus facebook groups. Except for forums that are locked down to only registered users, they are generally searchable from search engines.

    Had a hunch that was the case

    100% agree

    Thanks Malloy!

    Haha! PS has gone out of style but it takes very little to keep it going so we keep it up. Who knows what the future will bring!

    Facebook sucks for threads. It seems like half the the I want to view a comment under someone's comment, it disappears.

    Honestly, I still prefer the forum to FB. I only keep FB for the friends and family who are far-flung.

    Weren't people saying that about Philadelphia itself just a few years ago ??

    As for FB I'm not sure whether it's the format or the users - or the management!! - that's most odious, but it definitely doesn't work well with multi-person discussions among people who respond to posts without reading beyond the title (if even that).
