Tracker not working?
15 Jan 2019, 16:12
Although I don't post much these days I am usually lurking and still doing 'vanilla 5:2' I haven't been able to update my tracker this week - is anyone else having a problem with it?

Yes same here, have not been able to enter the backlog of data from 10/1/19. I have sent 2 emails with different error messages to the Support address. I can see historic data but not the charts on home tab or enter any more data. Pity as my doctor gave me 3 months notice until end of January to reduce my blood pressure & weight. I have been very remiss and only really got back to fasting on Thursday! 12 days to go as I do not want to go on Ramipril :-)

Got "white coat" syndrome? Fasting is well known to help reduce blood pressure but 12 days might be a bit short. Consider raising the issue with your doctor - that you get very stressed by the BP process - then ask for a take home blood pressure monitor to track your BP every day for a while to gain some needed time. I suggest going to an every other day fast in the mean time. (ADF only sounds terrible. It really isn't. The body adapts quite quickly.)

I haven't used the tracker in years having moved off to a spreadsheet. These days, admin support is infrequent here at best. Tagging @Moogie to look into it may help. There. Done. Hope this helps.

After a break over summer I was ready to fast again. I don’t mind if I can’t use the tracker as this morning I was back to my weight of 12 months ago. :curse: The fast today went surprisingly well.

I hope this reply shows correctly - all previous text is within the same box.

No, I don't have white coat syndrome, my blood pressure went up in late 2017 and I have had various monitors. It is just bad behaviour, too much food, alcohol, not enough exercise and I used to drink Yogi Sweet Chilli tea (which contains liquorice) and Yogi liquorice tea when at work. As it does not stew, I would leave the bag in the mug for however it took me to drink it even up to 2 hours until remembering people with high blood pressure should only consume liquorice in moderation! I now drink coffee bags and red-bush tea at work!

As I expect to retire soon, the weight should drop as I will not need to kill 2.5 hours between end of work and some social events that I usually fill with large portions of restaurant food and additional pints of strong dark ale!

The tracker is to me the most important part of the site as it is the only on line tracker I know of that includes blood pressure. I so miss it and was inputting various BP readings that are taken every 4 weeks or so. I love graphs and charts!

I’ve given up on the tracker being fixed and have recently downloaded a (free) app. I’ve entered as my starting date the day I started on this site but can’t be bothered to enter 5+ years of data. Such a pity.

Well the oddest of things! I was trying to work out how to reply to you without including your embedded message and clicked on your icon labelled progress, this took me to the home page of YOUR tracker! I then went to the tab where I would need to enter updates and it showed me MY data, then back to progress page and the annoying pink error box appeared again.

I too have given up as this site has not worked since January. I do track my weight in the Garmin Vivofit site (but my vivofit had broken strap in December and one of the mounting lugs has snapped off so a new strap would be pointless.) I also track on the Michael Mosely 5:2 tracker. I like this one due to the BP element. It would be interesting to see if you can access anyone else's progress tracker

You can see other peoples trackers if they have given permission in their settings --as I have. I can still access my tracker as far as it goes if I go through my details on the chat but I also can't add any more data.
It crossed my mind that it stopped working almost exactly 6 years after the forum started and I wonder if that parameter was set on the x axis at the start.
I am tagging @Moogie once more just in case she sees it and can fix things. I hope her absence doesn't mean things are still going badly for her

Interesting comment Lil, I clicked your progress icon and can see your progress up until January. Still cannot see mine at all. Attached screenshot shows what I see. Next I changed my settings to both of the other two and still only see the following text in a big red box"

"ERROR

Progress Tracker Data Update Failed [MAIN_5]

Incorrect decimal value: '' for column `dietplan__devfastd_tracker`.`v2userdata`.`recentwaist` at row 1"

Trying to tag Moogie but not sure how to do it - @@Moogie Does this work?

Is there a workaround for fixing the tracker? The first post was made in January and I was thinking that the issue would be rectified soon, but here we are in June/July.

I love using the tracker as a multi monitor for my weight/BMI/TDEE and would hate to have to go elsewhere now that I am successfully losing weight again.
