Default Downtime/ Hard Drive Failure

DogForum.org experienced a primary hard drive failure which caused a series of issues that brought DogForum.org down for a few days.

We have now restored our latest backup of the site - which I believe is about 5 hours from the time we crashed. We apologize for this inconvenience. Hardware failures like this are never pretty but we are very happy to be back.

We have moved DogForum.org to a larger server will will be implementing even more frequent backups. This will reduce downtime and data loss if this ever happens again.


Please let us know if you experience any issues.

Thanks,
admin

I have been having trouble today getting access did the forum go offline again today at about midday today?
I have had to get access via www.skweezer.com.
I missed my daily fix for a few days though I have a question is shogun involved in fixing the site when it goes off line? If they are they don't seem to reply to support emails, very frustraiting.

There are problems still getting full access to DF. Email notifications don't work at the moment and can't get access via www.dogforum.org directly in to my web address bar. Which I don't understand why it isn't letting me gain access. www.skweezer.com seems the only way for me to get to DF Jean are we on the back up server now or the main larger server?
The main access problems are Email notification links and direct acess doesn't work for me at this time. Jean could you inform the technical peeps aboput these on going access problems please?

Default Quick Login Demo

http://tinyurl.com/dflogin

I wondered if it was a problem with the home page itself, what with the images delaying the loading time. I checked Google's cached webpages of the forum and edited the login details so I could view them better than they are shown at present.

The demo increases the text sizes and displays the details in strong/bold text. This helps me when viewing the information and the navigation to each linked section. If not immediately directed to the forum, click the direct link underneath the login.

I would like to see the dogforum provide us with an official separate login webpage like this to help visually impaired forum users get easier access rather than scrolling to the top right and using a very small display area as now. Perhaps it could be set up as http://www.dogforum.org/default.html or http://www.dogforum.org/login.html

I am using the Fetch TV Netgem IPlayer set top box and this forum text size is quite small. On the Radio and Telly Forum, they set up the iplayer2 forum template which featured a larger font and a 640 pixel width forum display.

http://www.radioandtelly.co.uk see forum link.

Also, I had to use the Advanced Reply setup as the basic one wouldn't let me type anything into the message box...

I appreciate the extra work involved in getting the forum back online.
