Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

  1. Hi guys, Was told a few minutes ago that the site was down... when I went to check, sure enough the DNS was not resolving. The issue was twofold. First, my primary DNS server hiccuped. Second, the secondary and tertiary servers did not pick up the slack, though I still do not know why yet. I am looking in to it and will make sure it does not happen again. I suspect I will be able to find the answer fast enough as those other 2 servers are still not serving pattayatalk.com addresses for some reason. Frosty
  2. Approved your post. I suggest you check out the link for activating your account (upgrading). You will get access to more content that way ?
  3. ok, ill see if I can find a way to kill it on mobile. Tomorrow tho. Im dead tired lol.
  4. There is no "time limit", except for the default session timeout limit on the server, which is 20 minutes. But to get around that, all you need to do is have the signin option "remember me" checked, which should work for what your talking about. Also, click on reply again on that thread and see if your text comes back up. It does for me sometimes. Also, another trick I use is if I have to do a long post or reply ill type it in Notepad++ first then copy and paste.
  5. No, on PC. I say strange because I did set it to show on the bottom, but figured that was "broke" as I didn't see it. I actually don't want this banner in both places. I am going to try to put a search box at the bottom. That box is way too big for the top, but I think it works better as it allows the user to type in options first (dates, etc). And I don't like that the banner shows prices for multiple nights. It makes some of the places seem way too expensive. Not a very good advertisement IMHO. I am also going to play with their API to see if I create my own banner or ad instead that b
  6. It was pointed out to me that I should add the note: You need to click the banner, not just go to agoda.com, to give pattayatalk the credit for the visit ?
  7. Strange, I don't see the one at the bottom. Still working the kinks out of this.
  8. Hi Guys, I just put the first new ad online, and you should have seen it by now, assuming your not ad blocking. Everyone that comes here needs a hotel to stay at. And getting a good deal is much more important than helping the board keep costs covered... now that said, in most cases you can find as good a deal or better using Agoda, so please give it a look for your dates. If the price is the same or better than where you usually book your tickets, please consider using it. We get a commission of the sale price, and while its not very much, it does add up. Over the last year with th
  9. You might be better going with a Android box of some kind. Cheaper, more options and more reliable these days. Satellite is an old expensive technology. Of course I have no idea if there are hacked/cracked receiver boxes available. If so, then satellite may be ok. I just can't see paying a huge monthly fee for it these days.
  10. Anyone else noticed that? Seems fine to me... Perhaps a new skin would help. Ill start looking in to that.
  11. No, its not. Our power went out one night a while back... was about 6 months or so ago now. I had just taken nyquil, and I have a really hard time sleeping without aircon... so I left it to the GF to find us a room for the night. The place she found was cheap - 700 baht for the night... place was nice enough, just what you expect from a hotel. But the mattress. Holy shit was it hard. Like sleeping on a slab of wood. It killed my back. I woke up after about 2-3 hours in some serious pain. Got up and went back home and slept without Aircon until the power came back on later that morn
  12. The info I just got is that when you get the Freedom to Marry document, which you have to get from your countries Embassy, you have to tell them what month you will marry, and its only valid for that month. Not sure how accurate this is... but was just told by someone who claimed thats how it worked for them.
  13. He does not have notifications on, so hopefully he sees it in his feed.
  14. Lets see if he has notifications turned on... can you answer this @Bushcraft ?
  15. Trying to get you a solid answer, but the best bet right now is 30 days. Seems that is the usual expiration, but it is up to the Amphur, so it may be more (but likely not less).
  16. The members only area of the forum allows a more open discussion on Pattaya. It is not subject to the same restrictions and censorship as the Open Forum. It is a little more adult oriented. Please understand that this is NOT a porn site. If you are looking for porn you will be disappointed. Save yourself and the Webmaster some time and don't apply. Membership is restricted to people over 18 years of age, and is subject to verification as detailed below. Membership is free. Here is what you need to do to get in... Step 1: Before you apply for membership you must register f
  17. Forum Rules No flames ever for any reason. No posts designed to upset other members. If you enjoy upsetting people even if you stay within the rules, you will still be warned. Absolutely no discussion on girls under 18 will be allowed. It's not my thing and I don't want to hear about it in any way shape or form. Please do not post explicit x-rated photos or videos. Nude r-rated ones are OK but any showing explicit sexual activity will be deleted and the member warned. This is not my idea but a requirement of Thai law. No racist or bigoted comments. Comments wh
  18. Hi guys, The background processes have finally finished, so all old posts should now appear properly (photos, links, etc). That makes the upgrade finally complete. I have also turned on enforcement of SSL, so all parts of the forum should now show as SECURE in your browser. This is something pattayatalk has never had, so please let me know if you have any problems because of it. Moving forward the costs for the site have gone up quite a bit, with the SSL and Email solutions (and I am working on doing email locally instead to save that cost), I will be looking in to putting som
  19. Ya we will be experimenting with it and other logos as soon as the background processes are done. Should be late tomorrow, or early the next day.
  20. The secure thing will be fixed soon. Am waiting for the background processes to finish before I enforce the SSL change. For the other, try this: Activity --> Unread Content
  21. If I understand what you mean... Mouse over the Activity tab at the top... and choose Unread Content. that shows things you have not yet read.
  22. UPDATE: The email issue has been resolved. The contact form now works properly. Important: I know at least 2 people sent contact form requests that were not received, and 3 others used the forgot password link and did not receive their emails. Due to the nature of the system I do not know who these people were and I cannot resend that info. Hopefully whoever you are you are reading this and will try again now :)
  23. UPDATE: Email is still having some minor issues. This means the CONTACT FORM and the FORGOT PASSWORD links may not work correctly. if you are a member and having any issues that require our notice, like you cannot log in, feel free to email me directly at flbbar@gmail.com, at least until I get this sorted out.
  24. UPDATE: Email is now back up and working. For the time being, until I can get a count of the number of emails we send out daily, I am using sendgrid for email service, to ensure that they all get out ok. Its free for 40k emails for the first month, then 100 per day (for free). If we go over the 100 per day (very likely), ill have to either change up or pay a monthly fee. Will see how it goes.
