Re: Can't Access Thread

OK, I found my backup copy of the page. TLM's intro post and Excel constants posts are the same. The Word constants post has been replaced with an asterisk.

I plan to repost my content, but in two smaller posts in a new thread, instead of one big post.

We could create a test thread, where we post the 2 combined posts, or other large posts, to see if it causes a similar error. The things I thought it might be, with no specialist knowledge on the subject: too much text, too many urls, closed the tab before the 'busy' icon on the Internet Explorer tab had finished.

IM, do you mean direct message on the forum, IRC, Discord? I haven't used IRC or Discord before.

I'm on IRC as 'kiwibis...' (the website is called 'Kiwi IRC').

[EDIT:] OK I'm on both IRC and Discord as jeeswg.

I was going to post both of these ahk files, as posts, but they were causing the problem:
https://github.com/jeeswg/AutoHotkey-scripts/blob/master/ms%20office%20constants%20(excel).ahk
https://github.com/jeeswg/AutoHotkey-scripts/blob/master/ms%20office%20constants%20(word).ahk

I didn't want to try posting them via private message, because I was concerned that that might also get things messed up, and cause the same error, and I wouldn't necessarily have a way to fix it. I have potentially irreconcilable problems with messaging.

The contents of both files caused the error message, but for both of them when I removed some of the content, they worked, so perhaps a specific string is causing the problem, or perhaps something about the way the post looks, some pattern in the text, when there is a certain number of such lines, is causing the problem. Perhaps some sort of cross-site scripting error?

@User: Cheers.

Is there not a backup of all posts? Or perhaps there is but only for recent months?

I backed up my posts as txt files (i.e. what you see in the Edit box) and it came to just under 3MB. Since my posts are 1,324 (0.96%) of 138,109 posts, then on that basis you could back up the forum's posts taking only around 300MB.

there is but its painful to dig out one specific post. one of those rare situations where a complete restore would do more harm than good
I re did the post from your backup
