Transferred servers.  Sorry if the site was down when you tried to access it this afternoon.

Thanks for always being here for us :)

Doing some computer / server maintenance work today and maybe tomorrow.  There will be sporadic downtimes.  If you're typing a long entry in your browser, I'd suggest copying it before submitting it, just in case the server was taken offline prior to your submitting. 

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/13/2014:
thanks for all you do DD!

Did another server move because the last server kept timing out and throwing errors.

Hopefully things work better on this one.  I also have the image upload working again, I think.

Let me know if you see anything not working correctly.

biscottibody59 on 02/28/2014:
Fast! Woo-hoo!

Not sure how to describe this, but when you're logged in and the home page used to be just the diaries--ALL the names on the side. Now it's something different--not sure how to describe the pattern after that.

ddwebmaster on 02/28/2014:
I've tried a few browsers and they all seem to be displaying properly. If logged-in, you should see a top banner with Diet Diaries, tool icons, and your username. Below that should be a left column with about 20 usernames with the most recent entries. Below that should be a section with recent forum topics. There should be a middle column with the most recent 15 or so entries from various people. Right column should be blank.

Moved the site between servers which resulted in it being down for 30 minutes today.  DNS servers may have caused "your" delay to be longer, but hopefully not overly long.  If you see this message, you're accessing the site on the new server. 

I'm hoping that everything transferred correctly and is operating as before.  If you see something inoperational or not operating as before, please leave a note here or email webmaster@dietdiaries.com

** UPDATE ON 02/11/2014 **

Thought a new server through Amazon web services was going to make things run smoother, but it's not.  It's only been a few days, but the server keeps experiencing issues.  Sometime over the next couple days I'm going to be switching things again and hopefully it'll cure the problems it's having currently.

hollybelle on 02/08/2014:

i would like to be able to see all of my entries at one time...is it possible anymore to load all your entries at once so that you can scroll through all of them??? thank you for your response in advance. once again, i would like to let you know that i love this site and all the women on here. what amazing support they are.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/15/2011:
once again, thank you for making this site available to us women. you are a blessing.

ddwebmaster on 07/16/2011:
There's no button to push or easy option, but there is a way. I don't make it easier because it really depends on your bandwidth speed and the amount of data that needs to get transferred. If the bandwidth is slow of the amount of data too great, it may timeout and not work correctly.

With that said, here's how to do it:

Each viewing page has a default hidden record display of 10 records. If you want to override that with a different number of records to display you need to enter the following directly after the URL in your browser: "&perpage=100". The number 100 in that example would make the default records shown for that page 100 records. To be able to show all of the records on one page for someone, you'd need to up that number to something higher, like 5000. So to load all of your records on one page you could copy and paste the following into your browser:


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/16/2011:
very easy! wow, thank you so much.

"horizontal line" insert button isn't working for me. Went to edit an entry with a couple of them and the ones that were there previously disappeared. Weird. Thanks!

added: image button, smileys and table buttons don't work either . . .

biscottibody59 on 12/28/2011:
I'm using IE9 on the new computer. That's when the above buttons don't work.

ddwebmaster on 12/29/2011:
Just got back from vacation and catching up at work is going to be hectic. I'll try to take the time to look into it next week.

ddwebmaster on 12/29/2011:
I took a quick look at it and you're right, it's not working in Internet Explorer 9. I ran a quick web search and found out that there are a gazillion compatibility problems between IE9 and the editor the website uses. There doesn't seem to be a quick fix right now.

biscottibody59 on 01/02/2012:
I thought it was my imagination, but my updates don't seem to be taking effect either. My other computer is out of whack 'til I can find a system CD or such, otherwise I'd go there. Oh well, thanks for your effort!

I can leave comments and I'm kinda taking a break anyway. No biggie, though from your response here it sounds like a pretty sucky problem.

Happy New Year!

biscottibody59 on 01/02/2012:
I just tried the image icon on IE9 for compatibility view (the torn paper image icon) and it let me do the horiz line and smilies (for instance). I didn't try image button. Looks like it worked okay.

Sorry to bother you but i wanted you to know that Moogy is having difficulties logging on here :( Is there something you can do to assist her?

getmebackto150 on 06/01/2011:
I am getting red Xs across the top where new entry, accrount maintenance, forums, etc are...

ddwebmaster on 06/01/2011:
For the red "x" you probably need to refresh your browser's cache. You can do a hard refresh of the eebpage by holding the control (ctrl) key and pressing the "f5" key. That should reload the page and force your browser to download the images instead of using cached images.

KathyBlue on 06/01/2011:
yep, moogy needs help! She's crying on Facebook, poor girl...

ddwebmaster on 06/01/2011:
Like I wrote on the forum, have her contact me via email at: webmaster@dietdiaries.com and I'll try to help figure out what's wrong.

nomoreforme on 07/15/2011:
Tried to do a new entry and it took me to a page saying 'We're sorry - An Error Occurredn8'

shaunnac on 07/15/2011:
I can post replys to peoples posts but when I try to do a new entry it says We're sorry-An Error Occurred. I am rather tech stupid. soooooo =(

A few small changes.

I've removed the # of total posts since 1999 from every page.  (It was located in the upper right corner.)  The information is still available midway down on the main homepage.  I'm not sure if it will remain there, I just placed it there for now.  It is also always available on the "about dietdiaries.com page".

Added some icons for commands along the upper bar area.  I might be messing with these and changing them, but currently here is what each one is for:

plus icon - start a new diary entry
wrench icon -  account maintenance
talk bubble icon - access to the public forums
magnifying glass - member search / directory
question mark - links to "about dietdiaries.com" page
door with an arrow - logout
key icon (visible if you're not logged in) - login

The icons will probably be replacing the words for page navigation.  I've got plans to use the right column for bio information along with the charts.

tangalyn on 02/11/2011:
i like the changes :) thanks!

KathyBlue on 02/12/2011:
cool, it looks fancy :D You're doing a great job for us! :D

I changed the graphs to a different format.  I had changed the progress bar to a "flash" type graphic, but that caused problems for iphone / ipad users since they don't support the "flash" format.  I finally found a charting API from google that creates an image file of the graph that should be compatible with most types of browsers.

Like I mentioned in a previous entry, I've been changing a lot of the behind the scenes files so let me know if something stops working.

moogy on 01/30/2011:
I don't understand much of what you just typed but appreciate the work that you do!! LOL

I'm going to be moving some files around.  Let me know if something's broken or not working.   

If the reply button isn't working, you can email webmaster@dietdiaries.com

moogy on 01/29/2011:
Thank you for your answer. I won't worry about it then. I was just feeling as if I had been forgotten (I have a little life issue with that). It is true, I am always on the recent entries. Thanks.

Added current status bar.  It's tied to the monthly average weights graph, but won't show if you don't have a goal weight, starting weight, and / or current weight listed in your most recent daily blog entry.  The status bar is an Adobe "flash" chart, so you need to have a flash plugin installed to be able to view it.

Removed the picture links along the top for my diary, public diaries, forums.  Added links to right side column.  Will hopefully get around to cleaning it up later.

Made mild changes to starting a new entry.

Here's what you do if you want to read your own entries without any of the comments inline.  After you're logged-in, click on your name to bring up your entries (with comments inline).  Then there's a link at the top of your first entry that, if clicked, will reload your entries without any inline comments.  You can then read through your pages of entries without inline comments.  Once you leave that session or re-click on your name again, it will reset to showing comments inline again.

Hey!! Thanks for the graph! Love it. You are working so hard, we appreciate it.

hopingforhealth on 01/19/2011:
Thanks so much! I love all the changes and am so happy to have the graph back.

moogy on 01/27/2011:
Hello, I realize that the member directory is not yet finished, I was just wondering if there was a reason that I wasn't on a list yet. Will there be a less than a year list or something like that. I am loving all the work that you have done. Thank you, you know I love DD's and appreciate all the work it takes to maintain it's functionality. Thank you.

ddwebmaster on 01/27/2011:
Moogy, the member directory page won't have everyone listed on the page. It's mainly a place for people to go to find some less active members diaries to read up on. For regulars like you, most people see your name in the list of recent diary entries on a daily basis. When I get some time I might add some other things in the directory. I get little blocks of spare time now and then with nothing else to do and that's when I usually try to make several changes at once.
