Upload Speed/Disconnect issues fixed


It's been a short week for Inkbunny, with us being offline for half of it! Thank you to everyone for being patient. The downtime was absolutely necessary and was worthwhile in the end.

Upload Speed/Disconnect Issues Fixed

As most of our regular users would have noticed, we were offline for 4 days starting last weekend.

The downtime was essential to fix ongoing issues many users were having with slow or unstable uploads.

We are happy to say that the Upload problem has been fixed!

We were able to prove to our hosting provider that even with a totally reinstalled server and no Inkbunny software on it, the issue was still occurring. Once we proved it was their fault, they then investigated the network equipment and found a problem that has since been repaired.

Users are now reporting fast and stable uploads for large files. Please let us know if you experience any ongoing problems.

Software Updates

We managed to get a bunch of development work done while we were offline. We are now up to Inkbunny version Beta 38.

*  Fixed: Upload speed and disconnect issues some users were experiencing have now been fixed.  Apparently it was a faulty router.

* Fixed: Incorrect animated gif optimisation settings were causing some animated icons to be rejected as "too big to upload" even when they were within the size limits.

* Fixed: You can now reply to comments on your own items, even if the comment is from someone who has banned you. Normally you cannot reply to comments anywhere in the system that are by someone who has banned you.

* Fixed: A whole bunch of security improvements were made to our code.

Happy holidays!

Sorry, uploads are not fixed.  It takes the better part of an hour trying and retrying to upload an under-200/over-50 kb picture (ie. not even a quarter of a megabyte).  The upload starts at .01 or .02 mb, waits a bit, jumps to .04 or .05 (rarely to .07), then nothing happens until I get this:
" ERROR: Received cancellation request or didn't receive response from browser within timeout limit. Some files may have been uploaded successfully. Stopped uploading on file 'xxxxx.xxx'. That file and any after it in the zip were not added.

I know I've got a successful (if rare) upload if it creeps up .01 mb by .01 mb instead of jumping to .04 or .05.
