I can only offer my apologies. Bit of miss communication really. I wanted ten pages of threads off the coarse forum to free up database space but ten pages were knocked off here as well – there were only eight pages so they all went the way of the dodo. oops.
At least the site’s faster again!!!
Geepster- I dunno if this might help but I saved a page in my favourites about 3-4 months ago. The page had dissapeared from the forum but still I could access to the page after 3 months from the direct link! Surely, this pages has been saved on your server and not deleted even if it was not appearing on the several pages of the forum.
This can explain why this has been slowing down as the server has been saving all the pages since!
They have been physically deleted Jackyboy, rather than dropping off the site as they do by default after three months. I reckon what you could still access might be those that have gone off after three months. And at 4am every morning the site backs up and has saved the deletion, so they can’t be retrieved. Didn’t know that last night. I know this now because HA has been in touch as he thought we could get them back. So I asked ICO today and alas alak no, the 4am back up has mucked that idea up as it’s basically saved the error. The unlucky thing is there was no need at all to take any threads off here. A lot were taken off the coarse forum as that has about 60 pages, but this one only had about eight pages. Just one of those things I guess.
