I too can no longer read posts.

I don't know what I did, or didn't do to cause this, it just suddenly happened.

What makes you think you did something?

Is the site now closed ?


If so that's a shame.
The site is not closed. It continues to work perfectly fine for the majority of the members, but for a significant # of members, including a few moderators, you cannot read posts if you are logged in. If you are NOT logged in you can read posts but cannot post yourself.

As we've said, the IT staff is actively working on it. None of us are happy with the situation, but we just have to let them do their job. They'll get it figured out.

Perhaps there would be much less confusion if there was a notice posted where everyone could see it on the first page....may cut down on the questions.

Workaround

I can read posts if not logged in.
If I see something I want to reply to worth the trouble, I log in, posts are still visible, I type the reply, and Submit. Everything goes away. I log out, and my post is up. Phew.

It is not platform dependent, I cannot read posts if logged in from iPad or PC.

It's Thursday afternoon and this forum is still out of order.
It's a bit upsetting, posts are not showing since last Friday!

We've been without our 1911 forum for a week now! :eek::eek::eek:
Let's hope they'll be able to fix it soon.

Regards to all.

I know you guys are working on this but it’s getting old after a week. If it helps this is coming from my Verizon iPhone. Verizon iPad doesn’t work when logged in though. All my windows laptops don’t work when logged in either.

The vB staff is trying to figure it out. So far there is no common denominator. But trust me they're working on it, so please be patient.

Also, please DO NOT create new user accounts. The problem is with the forum, not your accounts, and creating multiple usernames is against forum rules.

Hello all,

Can you give this a test and see if that helped?

Hi Ed.

Okay...

I'm running Firefox 68.0.2 64 bit under Win 7 pro 64.
But Chrome and IE-11 all experience hte same problem.

The shield icon is not there, but a lock icon is (shows secure connection).
To the left of that is an "i" in a circle - icon.
So no blocking going on...

I do not see the option to turn off blocking for this site. It does not appear where Mozilla said.
Maybe that's because nothing is being blocked?
But the drop down menu says there is blockable content.

Following the suggested idea, I turned off ALL blocking anyway.
Reloaded all tabs, and signed into my account (cavelamb).
No text...

I disabled ALL add-ons, reloaded the site page - no text.

There are no parental controls on this computer.
It's a single user machine.

This computer is set to automatically synchronize time from 'time.windows.com'.

DNS Cache
ipconfig /flushdns sucessfully - but no change.

Cleared cookie for 1911forum.com - no change


But the advertisements sure do show!


I see 12 trackers listed.
And 5 tracking cookies

I set an exception for 1911forum to allow the use of cookies and site data.

after clearing all blockers I see over 120 tracker listed.
and probably 100 or more tracking cookies.

So far nothing I have done on this end has had any effect at all.







Okay, so I went to my account settings...
under quick links



NO options were set.


So I enabled a few - like Enable Private Messaging, show new private message pop-up, show signatures, show avatars, show images...


Saved changes.



Then went back to options - and NONE of the options I enabled are set now.

Went back to options and set ALL of them.
Saved Changes
Went back again and the only one set is "I agree to receive news and updates by email".

Somehow this seems significant!





Went to the Edit Your Details page and



updated my password to the new standards.
The old (non-compliant) password was still working
and the new passwords does also.

My date of Birth and location settings were correct.

Statistics page:
All works properly.
It could find the posts I made today.

Join date and post count appear correct.

I am not a member of any groups.
and
I have no friends :( so sad.

Private messages have been working correctly.

Subscribed threads list is correct.

I created a new account the other day - Range Officer 9.
(Sorry - forgot that was against the rules)
But it seemed to work fine.

So, back to you...

Good thing the forum has a big parent company to put their vast resources into fixing this week-long problem. *wink*

In many years of using and managing vBulletin forums I’ve never seen this before. Someone must have clicked an administrative setting or something.

I can only view posts on my phone in “Enhanced Mobile View” which ordinarily I dislike.

Still can't see threads 8/23/19

I can only view the first thread while hovering over it, so I cannot read how to fix this.
Can someone email me with instructions on how to fix this?
Thanks

I've got the same issue. When I click on a thread, all I see is what the below pic shows. I can go to thread tools and select "show printable version" and see the thread but that's a pain because I have to do that each time I view any thread. I've tried on two computers and two browsers, same problem.

just updating my status...

It's Friday 8/23/19.....I'm still having to log out to read thread content and log back i to make a post.

I first noticed this on Thursday 8/15/19.

I've tried on two different computers with different ISP for each....same result.

I've been part of this forum since 2015 and so far I've written over 6K posts; actually I joined this forum some years earlier but since I had computer and passwords problems I had to join again in 2015; I would add that until a week ago this was the forum I used to come more often during the day, but I also write some posts on other gun-forums like: "m1911.org", two forums on "LUGERs", "MILSURP", and "BERETTA" - I confess that I don't recall any similar trouble in any other forum... :confused:

I hope this inexplicably long technical problem won't damage, how can I say it "the good reputation" (perhaps this is not the correct words but I'm sure everybody has understood what I mean) of our forum. :(

Hope to see "forums.1911forum.com" back on its legs soon.
