Now it seems to have got to the point where the web page loads, but choosing any options at all sends it into the hanging/unresponsive state. Do I need to reflash the SD card and start again?

For release of 03.15.2015 is there a difference between the image motionpie-20150315.img.gz and motionpie-raspberrypi-20150315.img.gz ?

I'm running the latest version of MotionPi (20150317) and I have 3 x USB2.0 cameras attached to a raspberry pi 2 through a 7 PORT USB HUB. The cameras work smoothly with MotionPi and I've had them up for 7 days in a row with no problems and lags.
But...when I do a reboot of the system using the Reboot button, sometimes (30-40%) of the times... a camera will stop working and it will return "Unable to open video device since 2015-03-24 xx:xx:xx etc".
I then check under /dev
ls -l vid*
And this returns
crw-rw---- 1 root video 81, 0 Jan 1 1970 video0
crw-rw---- 1 root video 81, 1 Jan 1 1970 video1
......and the 3rd camera which will be 'video2' is gone. I don't know why this happens, but after unplugging it in and plugging it back into the same port doesn't work either.
Any ideas on this or how to avoid this happening?

I am unfortuneately stuck and need help.
I only want motion triggered captures, and no matter what I do, I cannot get more than one frame per second.
I have tried to increase framerate to "framerate 30" and have also added "webcam_maxrate 30" in the "thread-1.conf" file.
I am running a Rasperry Pi camera on a Rpi2, and fresh version of motionpie which I have just installed.
I have tried resolution 320x240 and higher resolutions as well.
In this thread on page 4, it seems that it should at least be possible to get 5 frames per second, when running in resolution 640x480, but I am not that lucky

As I wanted to use it for home surveillance when im not home, I really wanted it to be able to take more than one picture a second in case if the burglar comes into the house, to be able to have more information on him/them.
mcmanuf wrote:That is off course a good idea, but then I would loose the opportunity to upload the pictures to dropbox as soon as they are taken, as that would require the theifs not to take the RPi with them.
That cannot be guaranteed unfortunately, unless it could somehow be implemented that the the recorded video would be streamed/saved directly to the cloud which i don't believe is possible
