To attempt to track down the problem I made a new subforum under the bead section.  Check it out and let me know if you have the same problems in the new section or not and any other anomalies you run across.  Please try posting images to it, try viewing those images and try responding to the topic.  I'm desperately trying to figure out why this category of the forum is giving folks so many problems, and giving me a case of insomnia and apoplexy...

Settings could have been changed during the server move.  Gremlins live in the space between servers and love mucking things up.

You're welcome...
One last question.
So the actual "Show your Finished Beads" is working for you now?
Or is it only the new section I built for testing that is working?
Just trying to verify before I nuke that new section.

No images or buttons in the "Show Your Finished Beads" board. Haven't had any problems anywhere else.

Windows 8.1 and IE 11.

**sighs**
I don't know what to do now.
I've adjusted permissions to the point most of you in that section should be able to do things only mods could do.  Yet you still cannot see images in the old area or post to them.  I don't get it.   :dontknow: :sad5:

I'm completely out of ideas here.
I've tried to tweak every setting there is that could even be remotely responsible for the problem.  I've spent over two hours trying to solve this between last night and this morning and I'm at a loss...

I can wait and see if this weekend Randy can figure it out.  With his work hours I don't expect him to be able to log in till at least Saturday.

Can I say HOW AMAZINGLY WELL the rest of the forums are operating!  As an ex I.T. guy you never heard when things are going well , just when they were broken.  One day a guy came in my office and told me that when his buddy was complaining about their computer systems being down all the time he realized how good we did at our office and wanted to thank me.

Kudos to you all :Worthy: :Worthy: :Worthy: :Worthy: :Worthy:

Thanks Steve.  I appreciate that.  I keep banging my head against my desk trying desperately to figure out this problem while also trying to clean my studio AND get things prepped around this house so that when I start my full time job next week my Husband doesn't go into full scale shock.  I just got done hand rolling three and a half trays of homemade gnocchi that are going into the freezer so when I get home from work I can grab some and toss it in boiling water, add in some veggies and some chicken and voila, we have dinner.  I also have crock pot meals to prep and lunches to prep, a seminar to attend tonight, dog training tomorrow night, and someplace in there I have to attempt to get some sleep because sleep hasn't been coming easy to me as of late...

OK so I have a crazy arsed idea...

I take the test board and rename it.
Move everything from the old category into the new one.

Nuke the old one.

In theory, that should fix the problem right?

Let me know if things still work in the new board or not...

Heh. You musta' been hangin' around some geeks somewhere, girl. Worked perfectly!

I thought you'd nuked it for real when I hit the home page, but recreating it just moved it to the bottom of the beads section instead of at the top where I'd been accustomed to seeing it.

Am a former network admin, too, so I think what you did was a "pro" fix. It would be nice to know "why" - but it's nicer to know "it works". That comes from having end users and clueless bosses asking "when will it be fixed?".

Vince,
Oddly enough there was a reason for what I did.
Any time a category forum has been created - we've done it before for that forum section to narrow this problem down - if we left it up top, the problem persisted.  Something with having it at the top for some bizarre reason was causing a problem.  On a hunch I took the test forum, which was working at the bottom - and I renamed it and moved all the threads to it so as to not lose them.

The weird thing was when I got done moving threads to the new category, the old category still showed that I had FOUR PAGES of threads when I had none.  That tells me something with the code in that section was screwy.  What that something was - haven't a clue.  But gut instinct said nuking it was the best way to go to hopefully permanently solve the problem.

So cross fingers...

I don't know code worth jack squat.  I just decided to act on instinct based on patterns I saw in the behavior of the forums and threads.
As for hanging around Geeks - My Husband is a Computer Software Engineer.  I think it's rubbing off on me.

You're welcome! 
I'm glad I was able to finally get that fixed after twelve hours over several weeks of banging my head.  However it seems your tapatalk problem and the new problems some PC users were having was related.  In fixing the one, I fixed the other.
