try clearing cookies as you may be logged in to a duff template.

You can also reset the template in the control panel.;task=loginforum&Itemid=27

Cookies cleared already, and Soz should have said, not log into control panel ether ?
myff admin

What does the control panel say? have you tried the lost password routine?

Site: The connection has timed out

The server at is taking too long to respond.

   *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

   *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

   *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
         that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Control Panel: As Above

Other site all fine just them too links ? I can't access nothing just keep getting above ^
myff admin

Somehow you had so many accesses to the server you sparked an IP ban, it expires in 10 minutes. Just what were you doing?

Well i only had firefox open for site & control panel and explorer open as editor thats it, been working fine for days that has ? is this norm then ? If not hope this info will help others.

Many Thanks admin (no pm's please) for looking into this for me
myff admin

It is uncommon, but obviously it best that the servers are ready to pounce, just so long as they do not get over eager on more than the odd occasion. I'd still ask exactly what you were doing when you were barred?

All back up and running, thanks for this

And i was only removing some Board Styles

This is the same thing that was happening to me a week or so ago. Just in the middle of adding smilies. Here is that thread.

After that I changed to Firefox and the instances decreased. But I have had it happen to me once or twice after that. Like when I went from the admin page to the forum index. I wouldn't have to be actually doing anything to make it happen. It would just happen between page changes.

My site is

myff admin

It is partially in response to this sort of thing that we are offloading accesses to smilies and other bits to other servers. This may not be live in all parts of the admin panel yet.

If we do this then there is no reason why any legitimate user would end up with loads of accesses to the main servers.

Many Thanks for all info & help on this and hope this can help others too

Just quick question how to get home page link on forums, instead of going to Gallery at bottom then on home page > can't find how to get the link to home page onto the forums ??

Forums >

Home >


Great site keep up the good work
myff admin

You would have to code a home page link where you want it. Probably in overall_header.tpl along with the other links.

Thanks again Forum Index -> My Fried Forum
