ORBX Forum Access

Recommended Posts

Before purchasing an FS product, I normally like to browse the various forums about the product - see what folks are having issues with, what they like, what they don't like.I'm surprised to find that the Unofficial ORBX forum is the only commercial product support forum I cannot browse on Avsim.Why?

Don't know. Give it another try. Clear out your browser's cache, and if that doesn't do it, try an alternative browser.

Still having problems here. It shows there are 6 topics in the forum, but when I enter the forum there is only 1 topic "Sound" showing. I cleared my cache, am using IE8.CheersJack Johnston

I can confirm that some topics seem to vanish and appear again. Using Firefox 9.0.1 and a clear cache at every start. That's an Orbx forum only behaviour as far as I can see.

am using IE8.
Anything holding you back from using IE9? Recommended and it comes for free, Jack. Should also be much faster than #8.

Jack, try it with Firefox please. I have had nothing but problems with IE since v7.

Ahh, so it's not just me then.Just checked the forum and there is 11 topics on the main page but when I go into the forum I can only see 2, the "offical moderator of the unoffical ORBX forum" and "sound".Using IE9 here

Try this also

Hi everyone,The system defaults to only showing the threads that have been recently updated. When you enter this forum, before you click on a post, you will see a number of options in the blue bar right above the threads. The setting called "custom" will fix that.Kind regards,

@CoolP and Tom,sorry, but this machine is in my office and I am not allowed to update or change anything. Currently IE8 is installed here, so I have to live with it.In any case I found out that by clicking on the Custom bar in the forum, i was able to change the settings and now have no problems any more.Thanks

Changing the custom bar settings fixed it.Took me a minute to find the custom bar though.I have highlighted the custom bar on the attached screenshot for anyone else who might be having a bit of trouble finding it.

I'm not sure if this is a related problem but I'm unable to read the ORBX forum using Tapatalk on my IPhone. I get a "no permissions" prompt. No problems reading the forum in IE8. Any insights?EDIT: Yeah, that was it. Changed my setting to "show all" in the custom menu and Tapatalk now reads the forum with no problems. Hope this helps somebody else with a similar issue.

Agreed, that tweak helped, but it only is necessary in the Orbx section. All others work at default settings and show their older threads by design.

I've marked the whole forums as read. Logged out and cleared my browser cache. Browser closed. Next try, logged in, visited a totally new section for me (scenery design or something) and all threads are there, back to 2008. Visited the Orbx section, only two threads. Stephen's tweak needed to show the rest.

I noticed that too. Strange...

Hi, Long time browser but have never posted before - I am still having issues accessing the Orbx forum. On the main avsim forum page it says 19 topics and 315 replies at the time of this post, but I can only see 3 threads irrespective if I am logged in or not and have cleared the cache. This is making me wonder if I was/am missing threads on the other avsim (non orbx) sub-forums too all this time without knowing it.Thanks

I also have some problem as I can "see" only 4 post in the forum and know there is more (for example I can't see the post I created answering for feed back on the new Zealand South)

Click on the "Custom" option while looking at the listing of posts, and set your display preferences.See reply #15 in this thread for a picture!
