Site Technical Help or Site Feedback / test - PHP errors
« on: December 20, 2019, 03:04:28 PM »
Test post.  I had upgraded the PHP on the server which broke the site functionality.  Some people were getting a 503 FORBIDDEN error upon login attempt.  Fixed today 3pm.

We have upgraded the Forum software package today. Some users may have seen error messages during the 1 hour it was being worked on.  Please let me know if you see anything weird going on or error messages.  Shouldn't be any problems but you never know.

Thanks for the reply.  How can I upload more pictures?  I have about 15 more.
You can only add 4 at a time using the "ATTACH:" file option below the box where you type in your responses.  Its better to just link to the images on another service such as or and similar sites. 
More details at the link that 1914mauser suggested: [size=0px],121.0.html[/size][/color]

Thank you!

Cheers to all of our Mauser collectors!  I wish you a safe new year and I hope your collection grows.  Preserve the history, enjoy the engineering.

Its possible that your images are in CMYK mode in Photoshop.  Using the "Save For Web" method changes it to RGB which is for use on the web.  CMYK is for print.

I've not experienced this before myself.  But I'll keep an eye out for it.

General Discussion / Re: The old site

This can be done.  I had already started on this about a year ago and added a couple.  See the menu now on the main web site which is WordPress. 
I'd need a volunteer who is willing to copy over the old information and create the missing pages as well as curate some of the content we need to add.  Best fit is someone already familiar with Wordpress, but if not, it's pretty easy to learn.

We are in the process of decommissioning the old hosting server where the old site resides.  The old site is also utilzing old code technology that is not maintainable going forwards.  Our primary focus will be on the forum here on the new site.  However, we can indeed take some of the old content such as articles, etc. and move them over. 
I will try to turn that site back on temporarily so you can retrieve what you may want to backup.   We will need to recreate some of the content on this new site, either inside the forum or outside the forum (top nav from home page).
Please indicate what is most important to retain.  You may email me at for faster attention from me.

Wow, that chair is spectacular!  What a great find.  I think a trip to Obendorf is in order.

Sorry for the weekend outage everyone.  I had applied some security patches that locked everything down too tight.  Should be good now, let me know if it is not.
