Just wondering if it's just me. It looked like the new TE is hosted at infosec.vanillacommunities.com and there's some DNS round-robin configured. But it looks correct to me.

Seems to be related to use of Tor but Cloudflare supports Tor and I don't have problems accessing any other Cloudflare protected systems with Tor.

Might it be possible for the mods to change my username? I've tried editing my profile, but it throws an error because of the spaces. Thanks in advance.]]>

Can't post links? https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134640/cant-post-links Sun, 13 Jan 2019 08:00:58 +0000 TechExams Support rsxwithslicks 134640@/discussions
I've been a member since September 2014 and have 26 points (I know.. I know.. Big Poster but I saw in another thread that you need 25?).  Let me know if there's anything I can do to be able to post links.

Thank you in advance.

Automatic Sign-On Intermittent? https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134680/automatic-sign-on-intermittent Fri, 18 Jan 2019 00:30:04 +0000 TechExams Support DZA_ 134680@/discussions
I came across a weird behaviour (maybe I'm not the only one?) that sometimes I have to relog back into TechExams periodically. The unusual thing is that my account always has the "always sign in" check mark selected whenever you type your credentials. It happens from time to time, even on the mobile version. On the same topic of automatic login, sometimes it takes a few seconds for the top right hand bar where it displays your login to refresh and display my username.  May be it's just me but something I wanted to see if anyone was else having the issue. 

Cheers, ]]>
Anyone else seeing the tech exams site being blocked by OpenDNS? https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134667/anyone-else-seeing-the-tech-exams-site-being-blocked-by-opendns Wed, 16 Jan 2019 23:06:45 +0000 TechExams Support Ertaz 134667@/discussions InfoSec Institute: Training quote requires personal information https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134593/infosec-institute-training-quote-requires-personal-information Mon, 07 Jan 2019 17:09:06 +0000 TechExams Support FluffyBunny 134593@/discussions
I got curious about InfoSec Institute's offerings, so I poked around the Flex trainings pages. Still wanting to work towards CCENT, I thought I'd take a look over there. Personally it's left a bit of bad taste that I would have to enter personal information, just to get pricing information. It feels like a hurdle, when you're trying to consider giving them a sale. Why not just make the information freely available?

Simply because this one little thing, I'll try elsewhere. ]]>

It would be awesome if you could block someone from posting on your thread and/or them seeing your posts. 

I highly recommend the block button. ]]>
Posting Pictures https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134589/posting-pictures Mon, 07 Jan 2019 16:07:13 +0000 TechExams Support MrsWilliams 134589@/discussions
I am not the most active person on the website. But, I attempted to upload a picture today (again).

I get the error stating that I have to be around a little while longer.

With the old site, you could see how many years, since someone created an account. Now, you don't know if a person has been a member for 5 years or 5 days. 

Long story short, how long do I have to be around to post a picture?
Any chance of being able to see how long someone has been frequenting TechExams?

Side Note: I am trying to post a picture but I get the error stating I need to be around a little longer to post a link. I think it's a difference between a JPEG and a link. Just saying...

Looks much better now. Much more visually organized, easy to follow, and detailed.

Thank you!]]>

It will, however, allow me to manually enter links, but who wants to type out very long links???

I tried both with and without the default text in the input field. Neither option works.

For example I participated in the large "New Site, First Thoughts?" thread: https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/comment/1159415#Comment_1159415

and now every single comment in the conversation generates a notification in my TE UI. Is it possible to remove my notifications just for this conversation so that all new notifications will be indicative of smaller threads that I have participated in?

When I tried to test a url with the post "preview" feature the comment was actually posted to the forum and would not allow me to edit the comment. What happened to the "gear" and why did the comment get posted when I hit the preview button?

Why can't I post links or pictures? https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134243/why-cant-i-post-links-or-pictures Mon, 26 Nov 2018 12:58:59 +0000 TechExams Support Pseudonymous 134243@/discussions I've been a part of TechExams for over 2 years. Never had a warning or any of my posts reported. I don't post all the time, but I have 55 posts so far and never had any issues. Just curious what the requirements are.

I tried posting a link to the Comptia objectives for someone AND I tried adding a screenshot of the message I got on this post and both times I got a message saying this below (and it wouldn't let me post it).

You have to be around for a little while longer before you can post links.

Editing post caused post to disappear https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/134193/editing-post-caused-post-to-disappear Sun, 18 Nov 2018 14:17:03 +0000 TechExams Support That Random Guy 134193@/discussions I was working on a (kind of) lengthy post on a thread here last night and after the third edit, the system told me that my post would need to be accepted for review or something along those lines.

I didn't copy/paste what I wrote anywhere else and I won't be able to recall it again.

AFAIK, there's no way to check up on that.

Can I get feedback as to why this turned out this way?

Editing posts multiple times shouldn't be considered as SPAM attempts. I simply kept missing my typos and needed to correct them upon edit.

I noticed the timestamps on posts are different when you're not logged in. Here's a screenshot of a post from my desktop while I'm logged in:


And here's a screenshot of the same post from my phone when I'm not:



Once I log in on my phone the timestamps displayed are correct.
