Scheduled maintenance work will mean that this website will be unaccessible for a few hours late PM UK time tomorrow.
We will be moving to a new faster running web server.
For the following 48hr period you may notice that the site will be displaying the following URL, this is a temporary web address so that the site can still be accessed during the period it takes for DNS changes to propagate. The temporary web address will be new.worldsocialism.org/spgb requests to the normal address will be automatically redirected here.
Following the move if you notice anything not functioning as it should do please report here so that it can be fixed.June 10, 2014 at 11:59 pm #102044
Due to unforeseen issues this has been postponed until a fortnights time. Apologies for any inconvenience.June 11, 2014 at 1:31 pm #102045
UPDATE: We are going to attempt the move again this evening. The site will be unavailable for a few hours from around 6pm UK time.June 11, 2014 at 6:59 pm #102046
Server migration has now complete. An increase in page loading times should now be apparent, especially if you view the site whilst logged out.Again, any technical problems, missing images or pages please report here so it can be remedied.June 11, 2014 at 9:05 pm #102047AnonymousInactiveadmin wrote:Server migration has now complete.

Shouldn't that read "a decrease in page loading times"?June 11, 2014 at 9:10 pm #102048
Ah yes. A decrease in page loading time, but an increase in responsiveness. But now know that the auto email notifications are working to.June 11, 2014 at 9:50 pm #102049AnonymousInactive
Yes, that's good. I see that the onsite search facility is working nicely again so presumably the 'google search' alternative option can now be removed?June 11, 2014 at 9:55 pm #102050
In tests only 84 percent of the site indexed. The index is now being rebuilt and is currently only at 3 percent, it will take a couple of days to complete. You will get more results if you use the google option. I guess I should change the wording of explanation to go with it.We may yet need to get help so that all of the site shows up in searches…June 12, 2014 at 6:45 pm #102051J SurmanParticipantadmin wrote:Server migration has now complete.

Thanks Admin – much appreciated. Working daily on a 2G mobile connection can be SO frustrating. The difference in loading speed today on this site is truly amazing. I'm just about to check out the search facility – something I'm usually loathe to do.Cheers!June 14, 2014 at 11:09 am #102052rodshawParticipant
I agree – the improvement in response times makes the forum much more pleasant to use.June 16, 2014 at 12:21 am #102053AnonymousInactive
Will you please keep the Google alternative search as well?I like the option of using it to do the site and the web.
