Trouble getting on TMB

Postby SeekingChange » Sat Mar 04, 2017 10:08 am

I am having trouble getting on TMB. I have found a way around around it, but it's "unsecure", and maybe it always is. All of my old ways, like bookmarks and saved links, when clicked, it takes me to my internet providers websearch page....and this occurs on all my different devices.

If I can put in the address with no "www", I can get on. Is this a new thing? Or is there an actual problem that needs fixed?

They switched to a new server yesterday, and the same thing happened to me. I entered The Marriage Bed as a Google search term, clicked on the link to the boards that came up, and edited my existing bookmarks to use the new link address.

When I clicked on the link on the list on the websearch page, it wouldn't take me to it. It acted like it was trying, but then it would go back to the websearch page.

I had to go clear all my history, cookies, etc, because if I didn't it would automatically go to the www.__, even though that's not what I entered.

I kept getting the provider (AT&T) search page too, but I went to a separate/new Google search page instead and found the new links to TMB. Then I edited my existing bookmarks to use that link address instead. If I clicked on any of the links in the AT&T search list, they were dead.

I've had the same trouble. Tapatalk isn't working for me, either. While Tapatalk certainly has its challenges, it gives me a much better reading experience on my mobile devices than when I use the browsers on them.

ETA: I've received Tapatalk push notifications when I have a thread update, but I am not able to see the thread when I click on it.

SP, I've noticed the same thing with Tapatalk. I wasn't able to get on until I clicked the link on the side of the main TMB page. Even the tab at the top for the forum wasn't working. I guess I'll have to change my favorites button. I hope they can fix the Tapatalk because that's how I usually am reading here. :(

I am also having trouble with Tapatalk. I used an old bookmark I had in my default browser and that got me in. I tried to search for the forum page in a different browser that I prefer and the link it found did not work. I compared the two links. The one that worked was: www.themarriagebed.com/boards. The link that Google found, and did not work was: www.boards.themarriagebed.com.

I've had several people contact me off the boards asking if TMB is down. Is there any chance the TMB social media accounts could post an update? If someone doesn't know how to get on, they won't be able to read this message.

I have wondered the same thing.... it would be helpful. I went looking for some kind of announcement on TMB's different accounts, FB, blogs, main site, etc. to see if there was something going on before I had some help on figuring out how to get around the issue.

Is there a way people can contact the TMB social media accounts? Can anyone send a tweet to them or a Facebook post or message? If so, let them know that the server upgrade changed the web addresses of the boards and that it will need to be announced (and new links provided, preferably).

I'm not on their Facebook page and I don't have Twitter.

I figured one of you folks with the green or red names would have all those folks on speed dial. :)

I sent a message.

Whatever was wrong is now fixed.

Thank Goodness!

I don't tweet, I went on TMB FB account yesterday there were posts, but nothing about the boards being down. It would have been great to see a post on there.

This is the first time I've been able to get on in several days. And I did already try a couple times today.

(Although it might show what a dirty mind I have that I thought this was going to be a thread about WOT.) :mrgreen:

There was an issue that had a couple different "arms" to it. One of those arms affected the way the boards could be accessed via "www." All is fixed now. Apologies for the inconvenience!!

I'm definitely still having huge problems getting on TMB. Problem is not resolved. It is hit and miss, but mostly (by far) miss. And when I can get on, I cannot use the search feature. Nothing has changed about my computer, wifi, or anything on my end. The trouble is on the forum side for sure.
Wanting to become like Job, as described in the Bible, the book of Job chapter 29. Hence the screen name.

Job, I've never ever been able to use the search feature. I can know the exact title of a post and put it in. Let's say I know it is

"Husbands Who Prefer Sex on the Couch."

I'll get a reply: "the" "on" "husbands" "sex" "who" "prefer" "couch" are all used too commonly to be helpful terms. Please try another search.

Or something like that.

Or the name of the thread will be "Sex Using Platform Shoes and Purple Dildoes" and so I'll type that one in, thinking surely that one has enough unique terms, and will just find that nothing like that has been found.

The search box doesn't work if you just type in one word, like 'purple'? I just tried it and multiple threads appear with the word purple highlighted in red.

I thought Job meant the Quick Links weren't working to search for new posts or your posts. That's the issue I often have.

I think he was (and I know I was) referring to the error message "you can't use search right now, server has high load" or something to that effect.
