But is that people, or are most of them pests?

I think I'm going to have to remove the "All" links from the forum view pages. When the multi-hundred page threads get a hit, it takes a pretty major amount of database processing to fulfill those, so when the bots come indexing the server gets choked. They have been a convenience, but now the inconvenience is outweighing the convenience.

Oh, is that what was happening?

Guess it's either that or periodically start a new thread for the long ones.

Or maybe make availability of the "All "option conditional on the length of the thread? Or an option to load range of page numbers, with some upper limit on how many?

Idea: For each thread, automatically generate a complete copy of pages 1 thru (N-1). Whenever someone clicks on the “all” button, retrieve that almost-all copy from storage, and append whatever the content of page N is.

How much of a hassle would that be to implement?

As long as disk space isn't an issue, that sounds like it might be a good idea.

Just use a smaller font.

That's disk space, not display space.  :p

That is an option I've been kicking around for a while. The "All" option actually required me to make a new Ikonboard action to fulfill it, but that action simply needed to tweak existing code for getting a smaller page range. I'm not sure how much effort would be needed to have Ikonboard point to the *right* static page per topic.

Is that any worse than what's on that other thread? :p

I've dyked out the "All" links. I need to think about what, if anything, I do to handle putting some replacement functionality in.

Given that registration is shut down because of spammers being able to game the software, it may be time to finally just shift to a newer forum package. There are various features that I haven't found in any replacement, which is disturbing, but bit rot seems to have caught up with the IkonBoard installation.

I hope you do find something; I find the "All" function really useful for looking up historical info and links occasionally.

Yeah, so have I. That's why I hacked it in originally.

Anti-evolution refused connection to 185.100.188.xx over the last few days.

I'm getting a black border around all the posts on the UD thread, starting with Bob O'H's comment of Nov 5, 12:55.

Does this indicate that someone else has been silently banned at UD, or merely that there's an unclosed tag that's crept in?

The www.harun-yahya.net link in the preceeding comment has been mangled in a different way to the usual.
