It would be great if this forum had a "like" button like Facebook has! Other than that this forum only gets better!

We have Google+, but only do it on the forum front page.


Actually anyone can do it on any page they want, even in a thread. That's why it shows up everywhere.

the forums are almost unusable, so slow to load.



At the bottom of each page, just above the admin email it shows how fast the page has loaded

I get less then a second, what do you see?

Unfortunately all the G+ on the thread pages don't add to the one on the forum home page.  So it doesn't look like the sit is as liked as it is.

Syd, I think I figured out the problem.  You've been slow on paying the customs duty.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I know Len has problems too.

WR's server is in Colorado, I'm in Pennsylvania, you're in Canada and Len is in the Caymans. Of the three of us I'm getting decent page load times and I'm sure others are too.

One of the reasons I installed that little item that shows how fast a page loads is to help me pin point the problem.  I have a couple of ideas of what may help the pages load faster and I plan on going through them one at a time. It may not be the forum's software or server, but I'll do my best to see if I can find the cause. Hang in there.

Morning Ron,
I run on a Mac, so I use Safari, has the new Forum software got a preference on Browsers.
This problems sounds more like a Spam filter issue where it looks down a list of Bad boys via IP #
My IP# is 199.96.209.239, if I am away down the list, this would explain the long load times.

Good luck Ron, what a thankless job..... Tongue

Just as a datum point, I am also in Canada and my page load time is under 2 seconds using Google Chrome.

PS: Didn't there used to be a member location or flag in the left column under the member thumbnail?  Not seeing it now.

1) If your IP was listed in our Spam Filter you wouldn't have access to this forum.

2) All browsers (as far as I know) use a cache, if your browsers cache is not enabled then it needs to be enabled. If you are clearing your cache stop for a while and see what happens.

3) Any browser should be fine on WR
