I've been having a few problems on the site recently, as you've probably seen, with LL bringing my web host's server to it's knees (too popular, and too many comments!). As a result I've had to introduce some temporary measures to keep LL, and the server, running. Hopefully I'll get some proper solutions in place soon that'll keep all of us, and the server, happy. In the meantime I apologise for the inconvenience. For now "popular posts" has taken a temporary break from the left hand column, and unfortunately I've had to limit the comments to 100 per post (larger exisiting comment threads are still there - just hidden). Limiting comments has had the greatest impact and I'll be looking at getting this back up and running with full functionality soon. The first step will be to reverse the timeline of comment posts so that, with the 100 limit still in place, the latest comments are shown first, older ones to the bottom of the page, you'll still be able to add comments, and just the older comments will be hidden. Which, thinking about it, makes sense as the comments get more relevent as time goes on (with the exception of spam), and I might have thought of doing this anyway. I'll then add paging so you can "page back" to see the full comment history and nothing will be hidden anymore. Phew! Quite a bit of work for me to squeeze in there. Once that is in place I'll look at getting "Popular Posts" back in place, which I already have plans for: the list will refresh daily, rather than being up to the minute, but it'll still be a nice way of easily reaching popular older content. Right, that's all for now. I'll keep you updated as things progress. G:o)
Sorry, but comments are now closed for "Site News".
