A Quirk About Forum Speed....Is It Only Me?

by Steven Wagenheim 17 replies
Okay, I know this is going to sound really strange, but I have tested this
enough times to come to a definitive conclusion on this.

Whenever I hit the refresh button on the forum, sometimes it will take a good
minute for the page to refresh.

Well, what I tried, just for the heck of it, was to click the stop button and
hit refresh a second time. Still no change. But when I hit stop again and
click refresh a third time, the page loads instantly.

Now, if I hit refresh and it doesn't reload right away, I simply go through
this process (quickly) and the page refreshes right away.

This happens every time without exception.

If anybody else is seeing long refresh times, would you please test this
out and see if it's something particular to the forum or if this is just a
quirk with my Internet connection.

Thanks.

    I believe that it wasn't your internet connection Steve. I had the same issue at times. (Not everytime though)

    I have had a few glitches like that. It's also happened when I post and it gets stuck. So I stop the page from loading and try again and it posts. I'm on a broadband connection so usually it's pretty fast.

    Same solution/problem here...and 2 stops + 1 refresh does seem to be the magic recipe.

      The glitch I have with the forum is on the main page where it list all the forums. It always freezes up my computer and takes about 45 seconds to unfreeze.

      Not having the same problem Steven, but a solution might be as follows:

      Somewhere near the top right of your screen you'll see a white X in a red box.

      Click this and get some work done.

        You know, you Scotts think you're funny huh?

        Well, you are...LOL. But I'll never admit I said that.

        Thanks for the great tip. Shame I can't find that X.

    Have a life man. Focus on making money.

    Jokes apart, I didn't see that problem yet (tried your method a few times in IE7), maybe because I not too focussed on it. One thing I can say for sure is that the new forum definitely loads a lot faster than the old forum.

    • Peter... I'm backing away, any of those are scary options! Good post though.

        Im using Firefox and am having no problems.
        Same here. For me this forum loads and functions significantly faster than the former.

        Regards,
        Jeff.

    Steven,

    it could be that you repost data, or the antiphishing.. do you have it enabled?

      Everything seems to load pretty quickly for me. I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary.

        Steven,

        I don't know if this is the problem for you or not, but all Warriors who have the old "Warrior Forum Toolbar" installed in Firefox should either uninstall or disable it. It no longer works correctly and could cause delays in loading the forum.

        When I have slowdowns, it is often caused by things such as browser extensions and add-ons, so be sure to check those often.

          Mike, I uninstalled it and so far it seems to be the cause. I'll keep an eye
          on it.

            when all else fails clear your cookies.

            I'm using FF and not having issues although on another forum I frequent which had lots of subforums we noticed alot of slow down due to each subforum loading as well as its decription. Renesting them off the fornt page helped alot.

            I have a similar problem. I tend to be a patient person but I do try to refresh (or reclick a link) before the page times out. I just tried the refresh trick to see if I could get it to work and the page snapped open every time, the first time I clicked on refresh. It must have known that I was trying an experiment.

              I think the other posters are correct. I had a similar problem with IE and logged in using Firefox three and no problems.
