Re work computers - often work environments have proxies which can't be bypassed and may have older versions of the site.
On Mac, I used shift reload to (usually) attempt to reload the page from the originating server. though shift relaod doesn't always work.

I am emptying the forum cache (in 2 minutes) which will ensure that old pages that may show access errors are cleared out. keep me updated.

Just advising that the forum is loading noticeably faster in Brisbane since the change.

Is it going to be the case that we cannot 'View Active Topics' unless we are logged in? I am getting a no permissions to search error when not logged on. My blackberry doesn't stay logged in, so this would be a problem...

Interesting ... I justed VPN into work and then attempted to connect via the proxy server ...

index.php returned a 404 error message instead of previous notice HOWEVER http://www.bicycles.net.au/ gave me access to the file structure of the website. Only disconnecting the VPN and coming back outside of the proxy server gives me access to the forums.

Yep, I had the same, everything broken and able to see the directory structure, tapatalk went offline as well.

Re. stuff being cached locally, that's why I was trying random searches off google, ie. "pickle", "random" to try and find pages I had never been to before so that they were unlikely to be in the proxy.

But... seems to all be working fine now, and I'm accessing it from work finally.
I ride, therefore I am.

No problems for me at work, and on our 100Mbps fibre it's faster than ever.

Well done AUBicycles!

Agree on point 2. Huge job done well.

So Boogs, what hardware are you running (AT) work? I'm stuck on a HP toaster (thin client, citrix), and it is the equivalent of a saddle sore on a haemorrhoid :roll:

PIPE fibre 100MBps up/down with unlimited data allowance (read: SWEET).
Standard client/server network. i7/6GB/W7x64 laptop for me.

A pox on thin clients I say!

Not wrong Boogs, no sound card, videos never stream properly, no optical drive, thumbdrives awkward, printing large files impossible unless I muck around transferring them to thumb then run them on our non networked "black" box which is a direct USB connect to the printer (Shhh, don't tell the IT crowd! :wink: )

Thanks for the additional reports and details.

On new setting to the forums now are that you now need to be logged in in order to search. The search function does put a bit of a load on the server so we are going through each step.
