  • Site Speed and Logging into uksignboards.com

    This is a short message to apologise for the slow page loading times over the past few weeks, more so the past few days.
    We are currently preparing to migrate uksignboards.com to a new dedicated server. This will happen over the next 4-5 days.

    Due to the size and age of the site which is 24 years now, it is a bit of a tedious task, but it will be worthwhile, once the dust settles. As it will let us move to the coming changes and additions being put in place in the background.

    Thanks for your time on this.

    Rob

    —————————————–

    We have integrated Google’s latest reCaptcha security system into UKSB.
    This will secure the website at the highest level possible from the likes of spam, phishing, hacking etc.

    Other than the obvious, the benefit is that we can now also keep users logged into the site, even after a session is finished and they leave the site, turn the computer off, or whatever. they will still be kept logged in.

    The annoying part is that you will probably get presented with the reCapatcha “prove you are a human” photograph matching or number-calculating tasks. I am sure you have all done them at some point already. However, this should only be required once, and you should then be automatically remembered when you return to the site anytime afterwards.

    If anyone is reading this and cannot get logged into the site as a result of this update.
    Please email chris@uksignboards.com or rob@uksignboards.com

    thanks for your time on this.

    Thanks Rob,

    On the example Captcha you supplied, are we to include stairs that exist within the buildings or just those we can actually see?
