    Website Events Problem

    We noticed a problem with the new website and are currently working on it. The full events are not displaying venue, time, etc., which makes them not very useful. Somehow this slipped through our extensive quality assurance process 🙄. We are working on this, and may need to contact the vendor. Stay tuned.…

    Website Update Coming Soon!

    Several months ago, we embarked on a website redesign project for steeplechasers.org. The first phase is to update our website’s look and feel. This is coming soon, but we want to be clear what you’ll see at first, and what we’ll be updating over time. Initially, the look and feel will be cleaner with …

    UPDATE (6/19/23 0630): The server website resize is completed. The upgrade went uneventfully. We’ll be monitoring to see if additional tuning is required. (6/18/23) We’ve noticed the web server which hosts steeplechasers.org, scoretility.com, routetility, and several other xtility apps you may not know about has gotten somewhat slow. We plan on adding memory and some…

    Sluggish website results

    We were able to investigate the website slowdown without impacting the production system. It turns out there are two plugins which don’t play well together. For now we’ve disabled the less important one (the features are just visible to admins anyway), so the website performance should be much improved. As always, if you see any…

    Investigation of website behavior

    Some of you may have noticed the club website has been running slowly lately. Kathy Cea and I (Lou King) believe we have tracked down the cause to be a recent update of the calendar “plugin” we use, and are working with the vendor to debug the problem. While we have a staging site to…
