I'll be migrating QueryTracker to a new server starting Saturday morning (Sept 3rd) and so both the main site and the forum will be unavailable during the transition. It may take most of the day. Sorry about any inconvenience and I hope to see you back on Sunday.

I'll be very upset if it isn't back up by Saturday evening.

A class on QT? Nice. You'll have to tell me more about that.

Thank you for the heads up!

I'm working tomorrow until Monday, so I won't be back here for a few days anyway.

Whoa! EVERYTHING is completely different! And for some reason, my computer is telling me this site isn't secure.

Here's what it says when I click on the red x'd lock next the red https that is also crossed out....

This page is insecure (broken HTTPS).
Certificate Error
There are issues with the site's certificate chain (net::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID).
View certificate
Secure TLS connection
The connection to this site is using a strong protocol version and cipher suite.
Mixed Content
The site includes HTTP resources.
View requests in Network Panel


ETA: and the time is way off. My post should show 1:21 am QT time, not 6:21 am.

ETA: and I should say, the first time I came here after the change, I got a warning mentioning that passwords, any banking info I might have on my computer, etc. were at risk.

It's been a weird transition for sure. Formatting should now be fixed. If not, please let me know. Still have to fix the clock.

Tabris, you may need to clear your browser cache. When you go to the main site, what do you see?

Some people have reported a computer reboot fixes it.

I tried with a different browser and it got through, otherwise I get the "if you're seeing this and you own the website, you need to do something" page. :-)

Jane, that's definitely a cache issue. First thing to try is this direct link:

https://querytracker.net/index.php

Sometimes a direct link can circumvent the cache.

If that doesn't work try rebooting. And if that doesn't work clear your browser cache.

Everything looks completely normal now.  clap 

It was just so weird last night. Everything was so plain, homemade-looking, no borders, the 'compose a reply space' was tiny, etc., etc., and whenever I clicked a forum or thread, it changed to purple, as if I'd done a google search and explored some of the links google presented.

As for the time, I meant to say it's normally 2 hrs. ahead of my time, not one. But last night it was several hours off. Today, the time difference is an hour, which is still off from what it was before the change, but hey, I don't mind.   Smiley

Yes, everything is finally getting back to normal. Still a few things out of whack on the back end, but nothing critical. Whew!

It was touch and go there for a bit, but in the end it all worked out.
