I think we'll have to fix those issues on the content side, not in the wiki software. Unless that would break the formatting with fbdoc of course (i.e. it needs to be tested).

Yes, for example, when editing inside a paragraph, insert a fully blank line (without indentation) does not produce a line break at display, unlike the old wiki. Those already existing with an indentation are well displayed.
One should have to add indentation to each fully blank line inside paragraph!

For each page of documentation, one should completely check the formatting (line breaks, indentation, ...) and correct if necessary.
I think there is no risk in only adding indentations on existing lines (blank or not blank).
What big work (about 500 pages to be checked)!

But I can do that if necessary.

Since yesterday evening, time to access the forum is often very long!

Yes, forum is sometimes slow and/or I get:
Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Additionally, a 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Yes, same behavior.
I have already post this server response on freebasic webchat.

I got that as well more than once. I just thought someone was working on the site.

Link to forum / wiki still very difficult this morning (rare short moments of good functioning).
By cons the main page "http://www.freebasic.net/" is always very well reachable (I would have preferred the opposite!).

'Notifications' tells me Sancho2 has replied to my SCREENINFO topic in Documentation, but nothing is there.

Lost all icon highlights of unread messages.

Surprised me to see that there was a new version release.

I think this started within last 24 hrs.
All still not well here on the forum board.


Cleared all and reloaded with no change.

I replied to your post and then went and had a second look at the help page you were talking about. I wasn't %100 sure I was right in my reply so I deleted it. For what its worth, I was right (for a change).

Thanks for clearing that mystery for me, Sancho2.
(I feel silly about the alarm I raised about the function not working right. Stupid mistake on my part. But my question about the docs stands, though explanations have helped *me* a little.)


Could we please have a hint on why the board is up and down?

Is it new/continuing attacks?


I see the wiki up and down, also.

Provider problems?

I have no idea, seems that the server is just busy. It's shared hosting, and this happened before, so...

Are we always on the same server than before:
http://www.site5.com/support/current-status/r2-dallas/
because we do not see a bad status when our site is down.
(the preceding years, there was coherence between state of our site and this server status)

This seems to be more than just a busy server. 9 out of 10 tries (at any time of day) gets a 503 error.
A google search of this error results in this explanation:
The Web server is effectively 'closed for repair'. It is still functioning minimally because it can at least respond with a 503 status code, but full service is impossible i.e. the Web site is simply unavailable. There are a myriad possible reasons for this, but generally it is because of some human intervention by the operators of the Web server machine. You can usually expect that someone is working on the problem, and normal service will resume as soon as possible.

I also get the errors really often. They're especially annoying when they occur while submitting a post.

Is the site still hosted by "Plasma" (http://www.phatcode.net/) ? Any way, as the site seems to use some shared hosting I'd contact the hoster. As the (static) front page is not affected there seems to be a problem with the PHP interface or the database.
