    Glad to hear it.


    SHoot me a PM about this.


    I just removed a ridiculous number of old records from the banner server and optimized tables. This should help. Ironically why I was doing this it was probably slowing things here - but I am done with that now.

    I just removed the social buttons from the nav on the homepage until I can hardcode them as well. Seemed to hang for me with them there.

    I am not sure what is going on with dropped requests though - I have found that if you are waiting for a page to load, double clicking the link sometimes makes it load instantly. Still looking into this.

    Iv been having problems all day, when jumping thread to thread it will only load the 3reef banner sometimes.

    Tried multiple browsers:
    Safari
    Chrome
    FireFox
    Nightly Build Open SDK "Safari"

    Yeah it's driving me a bit nuts. Really don't get it but I will remove all my new code now and see what that does.

    I am also looking to migrate my banner server off this server to save bandwidth and lower server requests - it currently creates 2 requests a second at times.

    Wow. I might have raised the anchor by removing the social stuff.

    Don't know what software you're using for the forums but GZip compression, Xcache and table indexing can all increase responsiveness while decreasing load times. Depending on the hosting package you may have to contact your hosting provider to turn these features on.

    Thanks. Actually have all of those running. Going to log into xcache as I have not done so in a while.

    EDIT - Didn't see any errors in there but I cleared out the caches.
