Site errors

Keep getting site errors today and have been unable to post so far, trying again. Anyone else experiencing this?

I understand about the problems of popularity, and spamming etc., abd maybe I've got my rose tints on again, but I don't recall problems like this before the site upgrade.

Before the site upgrade we had half the traffic we are now getting.

We are looking into making the site and the forums more efficient, and we have some developments underway to improve site performance.

The unescapeHtml method was not found.
Either there are no methods with the specified method name and argument types or the unescapeHtml method is overloaded with argument types that ColdFusion cannot decipher reliably. ColdFusion found 0 methods that match the provided arguments. If this is a Java object and you verified that the method exists, use the javacast function to reduce ambiguity.

Tried to log onto site earlier and this is all I could get for 20 minutes until I gave up, seems OK now apart from I have to log in every time I visit site.

Is it anything that's wrong from my side?

No, it's been that way since yesterday, maybe fixed now?

the refresh button fixes the problem for me.

With all due respect I have to ' Oh dear'

muddypaws it's not the end of the world and if the improvements work then we all benefit

Yes I know. Just a bit of uncalled for ' tongue in cheek' by me. Apologies to Simon.

From my point of view the site seems to be running good and fast today.

The Problem I have and as not changed in years, is that it will only fully load Pages with Java Script turned off. Pleas Why is this using 98se or XP home. I had to turn it off to log in to My Posts, it also happens in threads
