Default Archive

I've been trying to open the Archive for months. Every time I get this message:

This page isnít working

www.quiltingboard.com is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 500

Is this going to be fixed? My use of this website has decreased dramatically because this is how I like to find new threads.

Admin said it would be fixed by the first week in January. I wonder what happened that it isn't fixed yet... a month later.

Interesting that you use the archive to find new posts. I just use the "New Posts" at the top of the page.

This is a good answer from wesing in a previous thread:

"the reason we like the Archive button is it lists posts by sub board in chronological order of the original post. Posts weíve already seen are one color, and posts we havenít seen are in another color. The New Posts button shows you all posts, whether youíve already seen the thread or not, that have new posts in them. I personally donít like clicking into threads Iíve already read. If I want to follow a thread, I subscribe to it, and I can click the User CP button in the upper left and see my subscribed threads and know which ones have new posts in them (those are bolded). I click the little symbol to the left of the thread title, and it takes me to the first response I havenít seen. Using the User CP and Archive buttons, I can look at only new posts that Iím interested in, without having to scroll through pages of responses Iíve already seen. Itís a huge time saver. Right now Iím not seeing much of the boardís new activity because I donít like scrolling through a bunch of stuff Iíve already seen. Maybe Iím lazy, but this is how I interact with the board and I donít want to spend time doing 8t another way. I hope this gets repaired soon."

Okay. I guess I'm just not that picky about how I view the posts and whether or not I have to look at one more than once

JennR8R ... Like you, I haven't been on the board as much, because of the Archives link not working.

Sure hope that the Admin people see your new thread and give us a positive response with some action.

CashsMom ... What I particularly like about accessing the board via the Archives link, is that I can check all the new threads as they are put up (or whenever I get to do so!). Then I either post to that thread or subscribe. That way I know I will see the follow-up posts as they happen. If it's a topic of which I am not interested, then I never see it again!

I understand. I'm just not that concerned about that and, in fact, I enjoy checking back on threads to see what's being said or what solutions people offer.

Hello - Just wanted to give an update. The bug for this issue has been filed. I have contacted our tech team to escalate the priority for a sooner release.

CashsMom ... It's nice if the options are there, and working, so that we can each choose what works best for each of us!

Although I do keep reminding myself this is a free board, so we really can't expect to have much influence on the decisions!
