Is there no longer a way to go from a "for sale' post directly to pm-ing the poster when on mobile like we used to?

So, I was thinking... yeah. There's a link in the profile info on the right.
Not being one to visit on my phone, typically, I logged in on my phone to see how to do it, so I could show you how.

Umm... yeah. It would appear as if there's not.

For now, you can always hit the QUOTE button, copy the text, then paste it into a PM.
FOR NOW.

I'm certain that, if it can be rectified, Plarz will do so as soon as he can.

I have no idea what you're talking about. I totally see a PM User option at the bottom of the drop down. It's definitely not new, and I definitely didn't just add it. :D

Haha. Thanks guys. I must have missed it when looking. Silly me.

Have a good weekend.

Are you having the same issue as discussed above, AoD 007?

I am also getting "504 Gateway Timeout Error" on a search for "Kastorel". This is Windows 7 on latest Google Chrome. This appears to be similar to some previous reports in this thread.

If I do a search on Google restricted to bartertown.com, I get results but when I click through to them it says "topic not found" which I guess may be a data base issue?
Thanks, Bartertown!

Please let me know if you're no longer interested so I can offer items to others; I'll assume you're not interested if I don't hear from you within 72 hours of a message.

Is it possible there are no current ads with those items?
Google might be showing you cached items in their search, where our site would have aged off the item by now.

Looking further, I believe that to be the case.
I did my own search. The first link was your ad from about 4 or 5 hours ago, as of this post. The previous was Apr 10, 2017. That ad wouldn't be here any more. The third ad was around the same age as your own.

I'm going to go on the record and say that I think that's the issue.

Thanks; that would make sense for the second issue. Didn't realise Google didn't update their cache results more frequently. I wonder if the gateway timeout could be related (i.e. it doesn't stop searching in time if it doesn't find matches).
Thanks, Bartertown!

That would be my guess.
Try now, and see if it happens again. Since we know there are at least 2 ads with that in the ad, you should have your answer.

Still gives the same 504 gateway timeout error, unfortunately.

I'm aware of the 504 Gateway Timeout issue when searching.

I've tried several simple fixes (re-indexing, swapping search engines), none have worked. I'm now working with our host and the phpBB community to find a fix.

We apologize for the inconvenience this causes many of you, and will update here when we have more information.
