It looks like my changes yesterday have caused some type of posting problem such that you get an error when posting a new message. This only seems to be an issue with NEW messages and replying to existing discussions works fine. So until I figure out what is wrong, here is the work around if you get an error:

1 - Post your message with a very short title.
2 - Once this is posted, go back and edit the title with whatever you want.

This has worked for everyone so far, but if you still have a problem you could try reducing the message contents to just a couple of words and then edit this once the message is up.

Cancelled for now => Due to this problem, I will take the forum down for a short time at 12pm EST today to perform some maintenance. This should only be down for 30 minutes or so.

Going to the URL http://thepaceline.net/forumdisplay.php?f=3 gives the error message
"No input file specified." Going to the old forums.thepaceline.net/forumdisplay.php?f=3 URL redirects me here. Noted Wed Feb 29, 10:45 am.

Thanks for pointing that out. However, if you put a www. or forums. in front of that URL, then it works fine.

Also, all references to forums.thepaceline.net will be redirected to this site for some period of time.

I believe I have resolved the problem posting new messages. If anyone has this problem again, please post a message in this discussion.

BTW, the forum downtime has been cancelled for now.

I seem to be posting messages then they disappear -any ideas ? (this post may disappear!)No one has reported a problem like this before. Are these new messages or are you replying to an existing thread?

Below is the error message I got - maybe the link was too large -it was from Bicycle Quarterly - it was a blog with pics of a 50 year old bike - so cool - love my CF Look, but this old bike had style, functionality, attention to detail and practicality - maybe I am getting old.


Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted at (null):0 (tried to allocate 1024 bytes) in /home/www/thepaceline/forums/includes/functions_search.php on line 197

When i sign on to the forum, i have to reenter my logon ID and password, even though the remember me box was checked. I don't know whether this is a related issue. Thanks.

This issue happened again for me this am. I got the error message when I tied to post a New Message. I reduced the title to one letter and tried again and it worked. Then went in and changed the title to what I originally wanted to use.

Sorry Keith, After I went back to get the thread to load I remembered I should have copied the error message. :crap: If it happens again I will copy it for you.

No problem. There are two different errors that I have seen that keep from a user from being able to post a new message and I thought I had one of these taken care of -- which is why I was interested in your error message.

I had this error last night. It was a "longer" title in the classifieds. The short title, edit later tricked worked.
