    Yes, it seems to be another (server-side) cacheing issue. I'll dig into it and see if I can work out where it's getting confused.

    I've seen that all over the shop, it's quite misleading

    Too lazy to check if this has been reported, but when you do a mouse over on a certain topic the swear filter doesn't work, if you open the topic you can see it has been autoredacted: example this thread: https://forums.contractoruk.com/gene...e-dipping.html

    I don't remember this one being picked up.

    Nested quotes don't seem to work (at least not in preview). The first quote is displayed and anything nested under it is ignored. Quotes are displayed in preview if you show each one separately.

    My profile is working now. Thanks Fizzy Knickers.

    Updateipoo: Ah. Today only if I click refresh umpteen times

    Updateipoo2: Ugh. Nope, back to not working at all. Seems like a cache problem but clearing it didn't help.

    Updateipoo3: Lots of refreshes work again.

    I get that with a number of different threads. Anything that's more than a few pages long.
    Yes, there's something going on with the way it sets the most recent post datetime for a thread. I strongly suspect this is also an internal cache invalidation issue; it's on the list

    This is a quite bad problem with moving stuff. Basically, vBulletin attempts to invalidate some of its internally-cached data, but its method for doing this involves building an array containing a reference to every single post in the subforums involved. This might be all well and good on a smaller forum, but on CUK there are now so many posts that it just ends up consuming all the memory allocated to the PHP script and crashing, so it never gets to my code that fixes up the URLs to conform with the CUK URL scheme.

    I've tested this on a development server with four times as much memory allocated as the production server, and it still doesn't get even a quarter of the way through before crashing, so just bumping up the PHP memory_limit configuration isn't going to fix it.

    I'm working on a proper fix for this, but it's a particularly complex problem for various reasons. But at least my existing tool for fixing things up after the fact works with moved threads (posts extracted into a separate thread are a different thing again).

    For those who are interested: the problem was a SQL query in the Thanks/Likes plugin that assumed a certain field was null if it was "empty".

The end result was that the query returned no results, ever
    Bloody SQL! Never trust it.

    Note that all my thanks etc after I post are shown as 0. I expect Putin is deleting my dbase records. I ain't that bothered though, don't waste a lot of time on it.

    Can you change the text to "Reply to thread" - linked to the log in button (or if need be get rid of those buttons).
    Ah, I must have screwed something up - the previous problem with those was that they didn't appear when a topic was closed

    Of course, the solution is in your hands: just never log out

    I'll have a look
