 Issues with the server host provider today.  Don't know what was going on, but hoping they got it figured out now.

Donkey on 12/15/2018:
Thank you for all your hard work! Glad we're back online :)

BearCountryGG on 12/16/2018:

Horn_of_plenty on 12/16/2018:

Moved stuff around and transferred to a different server / hosting company.  Think I got everything working correctly, but you never know.  Let me know if you find something not working.  

Horn_of_plenty on 10/29/2018:
ty Webmaster !!!!!

BearCountryGG on 10/29/2018:
Thank you....but was not able to post a picture this morning.

ddwebmaster on 10/29/2018:
It does look like photo uploading is broken. Will try to look into it later today.

BearCountryGG on 10/29/2018:
Maybe it's me....but I was able to post 1 this weekend....will keep trying.

BearCountryGG on 10/29/2018:
Ok...thank you!

ddwebmaster on 10/30/2018:
Looks like photo uploading is working correctly again. (Max file size for each photo is around 5mb.)

horn_of_plenty on 10/30/2018:
woohooo good!

horn_of_plenty on 11/01/2018:
yeah....i like the new hours part...cool to see that!

BearCountryGG on 11/01/2018:
Pictures are working now.

ddwebmaster on 11/01/2018:
Did you switch browsers? Which browser are you using? I just tried with Firefox and it's still not working for me with that browser, but works fine with Chrome and Opera.

horn_of_plenty on 11/01/2018:
wow...did it always have the hours we last posted! how cool!? i think that you've added in hours! instead of only how many days ago!? i don't know it looks different today...i like it!

horn_of_plenty on 11/01/2018:
but something is off...today's entries are a day early showing it's friday, Nov 2!

ddwebmaster on 11/01/2018:
Yeah, I had it showing minutes, hours, days as applicable. However for some reason the server is returning the wrong date and thinks it's Friday right now. So I removed the numbers if it was showing a negative number for now. Hopefully the server will auto-correct to the right date, but if not I'll look into it later.

Sorry about the downtime.  Some major fiber optic cable got cut and most of my state was without internet for the past couple days.  I don't know if it's been permanently fixed or if a work-around is in place for now.  If it's down again, they're probably still messing with repairs. 

Donkey on 10/06/2018:
THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 10/08/2018:
ty again for getting the site up and running..i'd missed it so much ! had to resort to emailing myself tabs on my calories all day and/or using my phone reminders lol.

Maria7 on 10/13/2018:
I went private and now trying to go back public and changed it back from private to public in account maintenance and it not working...???

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

horn_of_plenty on 05/14/2015:
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:
Thanks for maintaining the site!!

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.

biscottibody59 on 12/27/2011:
"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'

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.
