Sorry everyone, we are still making progress with our plans to migrate the server.

We apologize for the forum issues, which are mostly due to the ancient server the software resides on.

I can say that stuff is starting to happen on the back-end, and hopefully, we'll be seeing improvements in the very near future!

Thanks folks. It seems to be working much better and I've had no problems searching, etc. :)

Cheers.

My experience has been the exact opposite. Search (including the “View active topics” link) is unavailable almost all the time. I’m still constantly getting the “Please try again later” message.

:(

Sorry to report that it's the same for me. I can't search most times I try. Occasionally if I refresh the page enough I can get through. Sounds like you're working on it. Thank you!

Well, I have to say it's back to it's former problems too. No worries. I have my towel ...

Yes, it's very bad. Hopefully this will be completely resolved when we switch to a new server, whether or not we change the forum software. Though honestly I am beginning to think that one of the advantages of Discourse would be that you wouldn't need a special search for recent posts.

You don't need a special search for new posts if you login.
Any board that has new posts is highlighted by the icon on the left hand side.
Then if you click on that, any new posts are shown by the icon against them also on the left.
By clicking on the little arrow there, you are taken to the first unread message in that thread.
The rest can be marked as read by clicking the "Mark topics read" link on the top right.

Easy.

Sure, but that's like three clicks for each board with unread posts. When the "unread post" search is working, you get a list of the unread posts all at once without having to dive into each individual forum.
