4 Replies and 14800 Views Welcome to the new look CLUAS!    14800  4 Started by  eoghan This new look has been in the pipeline for a long time (way, too long, should have been done years ago, anyways I digress....).

To see it in action you should log in and visit this page to see your own profile page. You can update it yourself (just click 'Edit Profile'). I recommend you add in a quick biography, upload a photo and then go a...

0 Replies and 3435 Views CLUAS - full site is working again  3435  0 Started by  admin If anytime between Monday and Wednesday this week you tried to visit the blogs, discussion or (recent) album reviews sections on the CLUAS site you would have been met with a message that those sections were temporarily disabled (all other sections including the home page and end of year poll were not effected). This has all now been sorted since late last night. The problem was that on Sunday I upgraded the site to the latest version of the technology that runs these parts of the sites u...

0 Replies and 2298 Views Problem with CLUAS server fixed.  2298  0 Started by  admin If anyone tried to access the CLUAS discussion board between 10pm last night and about midday today you would have got an error. This has now been fixed. It took so long as the solution was to migrate the entire site to a new server (a task our hosting company did it beautifully, or something like that). Apologies for the inconvenience. If anyone is still having any problems, let me know. Cheers. eoghan

The first two CLUAS gig reviews to be featured by Google News search results are the Flaming Lips and Gang of Four reviews. Check out the following pages to see the articles in Google News ser...

1 Replies and 3506 Views Improvements to the Forum  3506  1 Started by  admin Since launch of this forum users have identified some issues, all of which I have looked into. The following is list of improvements made so far to address the issues: A new 'editor box' for adding new replies / topics has been installed. The old editor box had loads of options for formatting posts but this sophisticted editor caused compatibility issues with some browsers so I have introduced a very simple box. The good news is that this should eliminate stability issues some users (especially ...

By the afternoon all 6 of them have been picked up by the Google 'news' search (http://news.google.com).

Well now it is presenting the most recent CLUAS pages in Google 'news search' result pages - to see what I mean visit the Google news search engine via the link above and search for 'Mig...

2 Replies and 2844 Views Moving CLUAS to a new web server...  2844  2 Started by  admin In the last two days I (successfully) migrated the whole CLUAS site to a new hosting company. This will have resulted in some possilby funny (but uncritical) site behaviour for some people when visiting the site in the 36 or so hours. But things should be settled down by tonight for everyone (Friday May 19). So why is it not settled down before now you may ask. It's to do with 'DNS propogation' taking 24-48 hours to be completed. Want to know what that means in more detail Then check this out: ...

1 Replies and 2424 Views CLUAS server back in action (part II)  2424  1 Started by  admin Apologies for those who tried to access the CLUAS website this a.m. (weds). It was down, as it was for a few hours on Monday morning. I've been on to the hosting company and they are on the case and are aware of the fact that this has happened now twice in 2 days. They say there is an issue on the server that they are trying to troubleshoot. Hopefully the site will remain accessible over the coming days while they sort it out. Apologies in any case, for what has been a double blip on the landsca...
