    • I've been having issues with what my coding looks like in the preview versus the actual post. In the prieview, my coded character forms look all nice and organized - so obviously I post it. But then what I get is completely different than the preview and all skewed? Is there a reason for/solution to this?
So, there is a sort of semi-quick-fix available for this. It is not exactly the best one but it allows to view the current preview without submitting your form.

1. Press 'preview'
2. Open the (Chrome) debug console > Press F12
3. Find in the elements tab the following line of code:
space <div class="inner">
4. Click on the line
5. In the right pane, put between element.style {} the following:
space margin-right: 20px;

This will alter the width of the preview to the width of the actual post (at least on my screen), so you can check out how the form looks when you actually post it.

Please realize that every time you hit preview, the page reloads and the css fades away
You can leave the debug tool open and have the line of code beneath copy and paste and just paste it in whenever you refresh the preview.

See below for a picture indicating what I mean

It’s an issue with the DNS server, possibly down to cloudfare if that’s in use and how it’s accessing the webpage

I’ve been experiencing the same and it’s only late at night. Happens on both my phone and laptop. Phone runs safari and laptop is chrome.

We don't use Cloudflare for proxying HTTP requests, so that can't be it. As for DNS, DNS records have a high TTL (Time To Live) of 86400s (a year), so it's only hitting the actual DNS server once every year. Although, It's a possibility that people are loading the page during the nightly backup (I take backups of the database and files around 2:42 AM EST) and it is under load during that time.

I can confirm that it is most likely the back up in that case. It tends to happen around 8:45-8:55 CET for me, and I am 6 hours ahead of EST.

I had a feeling it was a straightforward answer since the ‘issue’ seems to be on a schedule. Makes sense that it would be down a few minutes while that is done, as it is during the night hours for the majority of users.
ATTENTION:

Please go take the survey about the Afflatus so that we can better design it for 2019 - even if you don't typically read it! Tell us what would get you to start.

Also make sure you are ALWAYS up to date on announcements!

We also have STAFF OPENINGS!

--Actually Lost this time, Nev's gone back on her own account.

The other day it was down for more than five-six hours though. I think it went down at about 7 in the morning and didn't come back up until past midday. Was that a one-off?
