The system still works, just no avatars and once in awhile, not always, it messes up things like apostrophes. I tried re-uploading my avatar but that doesn't work either. For myself what I did was went into my User CP, chose Edit Avatar and turned off the Custom Avatar feature.


Bizarre . . . Strange that PART stopped working, but NOT the entire setup.

I certainly hope the main database has a backup.

I would hate to loose all the information/history that has been posted to YORF over the years.

Great! I guess too your service provider does routine backups possibly?

Scott.

Using your backup, would it be possible to create a separate, downloadable, database for Scale Data, etc ?

Scott,

Can you download all of the images and PDF files, separately, from your backup ?

If so, they could then be uploaded into a "new area" of the Forum, where they could be downloaded, at will, without having to search the entire Forum and / or read long posts associated with each file.

Is this possible ?

Dave F.
