I can only see visit logs going back a few hours and things look normal but I'll keep an eye on things today to see if there are any outages. I pop in to check things each weekday at 09:00 and 12:00 just out of curiosity as those times line up with my morning tea and lunch breaks.

I am not sure what you mean by a padlock though. It's normal for a padlock to be seen somewhere in your browser window, as this site is a secured one. It runs on port 443 via the HTTPS protocol rather than standard HTTP. The padlock symbol will hide if there is any unsecured content such as externally linked photos on the page but the page itself is still served over a secure connection.

A yellow padlock icon can also be seen if there is a locked thread here. It's a common icon on forums where threads cannot be posted to any further.

Had no issues with the site yesterday. It seems the padlock has no effect, I was able to reply.

. Brad,
I dont know why the tread is locked with a yellow padlock . I have not added anything in the thread I would'nt normally do. It has a link to youtube but so do many threads? The odd thing is that the padlock is indicting the thread is locked but people can still add comments so its not locked?
Pete

You'll need to let me know the forum and thread where the padlock is showing. The padlock is not triggered by any content. Only I can apply it manually - unless there is a software bug causing it to display.

It's okay, I've found it. Guys, with regard to both issues being discussed, details are important. This site logs a lot of things and I can use those logs to determine the length of an outage. Just the same, if something isn't quite right in a particular thread, I need to know where it's all happening.

I'll sort out the padlock this morning. The access issue is another matter though.

Okay, there was indeed a bug causing the padlock to appear - all sorted now.

I have experienced a number of type 500 error messages over the last 2 or 3 days but, as Brad has said previously that he cannot see those in the logs, I didn't bother to report them.

I had an idea that it was a 505 error when I had issues but not certain.
