Issue with accessing DB using cfdb-datatable (5 posts)

    This is an intermitent problem I am having.
    WP 3.9.2, CFDB 2.8.8
    At times when trying to access the records in the DB using shortcode cfdb-datatable it comes back with nothing, although there are records in the database.
    This has also been happening with previous version of WP and CFDB.
    Example page -
    Once I log into the Administrator panel and access the DB through CFDB in Admin, everything starts working fine. The external page also starts showing the contents.
    I am not sure why this is happening, whether something is interfering with the SQL retrieve or what.
    Is it possible to have happened to anyone else?

    I haven't heard of this behavior before. It should not be happening.

    I do see the table on the page. I don't see any Javascript errors on the page. I'm not sure what the problem is. I wonder if the query to the DB is timing out sometimes...but that seems unlikely.

    Hi Michael,

    It does seem that the DB query is timing out. However no matter how much one clears cache and how many tries are done over and over again, when it happens the problem does not go away.
    Only remedy is that I login to the admin panel and access from there before the page also shows the datatable.

    I don't know what else can be done in order to reproduce the problem.

    I am still having this issue.

    Currently on this page...

    Don't know what is causing it.

    There are more chances that this issue will occur if one accesses through a slow internet connection like a mobile network.
    It may be the request is timing out as we originally thought.

    However since it cannot be reproduced I am happy that this thread is closed.
