Additional Notes:
  • Recently, Google Chrome 83 changed the style of checkboxes and radio buttons to be colored blue in some instances. This is not a Jcink Forum Hosting default, it is chrome related. If you wish to change the style back to a netural color gray, because the change color clashes with your current layout, the filter css attribute can be applied:
    input[type="radio"], input[type="checkbox"] {filter: grayscale(1);}
Best regards,

John & the JFH Team

Service Interruption (Resolved)

Jul 7 2020, 08:04 PM

At 5:51pm CST we became aware of a service disruption related to the network.

This investigation is ongoing at this time, we're in contact with the datacenter to find the root cause of the network problem.

We will continue to provide updates, and apologize for the inconvenience. Measures have been taken to reroute traffic at this time, but they are temporary and you may experience degraded performance. They will also not be immediately effective for everyone at this time.

As of 9:39pm CST service is mainly operating on emergency procedures normally.

note: if you have a domain name and you have an 'A' record instead of a cname, please change the IP temporarily to -- or access the board via the url.

Latest updates are provided at the end of this topic
