Solved Posting issues

Post by Gimpy Cat on April 30th 2015, 1:24 am

Hi,

For the last two days when attempting to post on my forum I keep getting one of the following messages

* Your request timed out. Please retry the request

The other message I get I cant remember word for word but its telling me that I cant post so soon after previously posting but I havent posted and this morning it was the first post Id made for the day so there were no previous posts.

Cookies and cache are all cleared, other members having the same issue

Hello,

The first one sounds like this could be the problem: http://help.forumotion.com/t140113-only-topic-posts-timing-out

The second sounds like your flood control, it is probably set way too high, therefore preventing you from posting for 2 days...

Try lowering this (I would recommend 10 seconds), this can be done in acp-->General-->security-- >Find flood control, change the number in the box to '10' or whatever you want it to be. Click save.

Hope this helps,
-Brandon

Hi Brandon

Thanks for your help, I will read the topic link you posted, I searched for topics related before starting this one, but couldnt find anything. I have the flood control set to 10secs, always has been, dont know why its giving me this message now. I read the post you gave a link for, at least I know what is happening, I have instructed members to use their back arrow and their post is still there so thats working for now. I find its taking me up to 6 tries to get a message to post for me but thats ok, I will wait it out. Once again, thanks for your help

May you post A screenshot of the message you get when you try to post (not refering to your request timed out, I am quite familar that annoying message myself, rather i am refering to you and your members not being able to post 2 days)?

Hello

Could you please provide a screenshot?

Do you have this problem only when you post a new topic or also while sending PM, replying a message...?

Thanks for your help :rose:

Buttercup its not doing it today so far, if it does I will try and get a screen shot. No new topics have been posted so its only when posting in current topics. The 'too soon after posting' flood message was happening when attempting to send PM's. Update, it just did it.

Hello

Did you check this option AP>>General>>Security:


It looks like you've posted too fast. We have a flood control system to avoid spamming.

Let me know Smile

Its not happening today, it was happening on the first post of the day I did and any others, so its not from posting too fast as I hadnt posted previously. Hopefully its ok now, it was happening almost every post, getting one message or the other but today there has been nothing. Very Happy
