    Hi all,

    As a lot of you know, IPCT has had some minor down time in the past week or so. First I would like to apologize for this, I have transitioned IPCT to Cloudflare for help with content delivery and to mitigate potential ddos attacks and have been ironing out all the settings and details. While there may be little hiccups here and there during the transition, please rest assured that I'm working hard to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    We noticed! They do have some pretty good technology, and a good track record.
    Sounds like you'll be needing more donations soon ...

    What type and scale of server does the site run on? Just curious as I used to virtually do this sort of thing quite a lot myself.

    Thanks! I only just found this site a few weeks ago, but it has proven invaluable with all the information and people available to answer questions.

    I’m very appreciative of this site.

    @Mike I've been getting some errors when I go to edit a post.
    When I click save, I've been getting this:
    upload_2018-12-1_21-15-58.png


    followed by an error like this after completing the captcha. Sometimes the error is in a xf bubble.

    upload_2018-12-1_21-14-20.png

    When it does work, then I get a bunch of un-formatted html. like this:
    upload_2018-12-1_21-24-7.png

    Mike, I get the same errors, but only when I do this...
    1. Click "Edit Post"
    2. The click "More Options"
    3. After checking the "I'm Not A Robot" checkbox the error is thrown

    I noticed that too, definitely something with Cloudflare. I'll fix it, thanks for reporting.
