[BUG] Timed out error on almost every post/update
« on: November 08, 2021, 07:29:06 AM »
Not sure if anyone else has been having this problem, but I've been getting this "timed out" error message almost every time I post anew, or edit a previous post:



You can get past it by repeatedly re-submitting; it usually works on the third or fourth attempt.

I have seen this happen in the past when uploading very large attachments on a slow connection. I think this was on the old server, which enforced a 5 minute timeout on page loads, although these days my connection is fast enough that even when I upload the ~70MB styles ZIP to neolemmix.com - far larger than the forums allows attachments to be - it's done in well under 5 minutes anyway.

Did the page take a long time to load when doing this, or did it load at normal(ish) speed but then give the error?

Normal speed; in fact, if anything it seems quicker when generating this error than when going ahead and uploading the post.
