    Not sure where the problem could be. There are a lot of moving parts and it could be anything. It could also be that the site was getting heavy traffic at that point.

    The software does have an upgrade out that may address any performance issues but I’m testing it right now and don’t have this site upgraded.

    Well one reason I found out (which may not be the ONLY reason) is that the pictures in the signatures are images that are not on my server, but instead coming for some other server on the internet. Of course if you have 20 posts in a thread and each loads the signature which tries to connect to the various servers to get those pictures, that adds to the load time and slows your browser down because it has to wait for each of them.

    I haven’t figured out how to disable images in signatures yet, but I would like to do that just to see if page load becomes better or not.

    Other things, are your connection to the internet, how busy the connection is from where you logon.

    Hope this helps.

    hey doc

    ok well…i have disabled the viewing thingy of all signatures (i cant see anyones, even if they got one)…and its still “slow” (when i say slow – i mean a hellovalot slower than the green forum)

    most of the time, the page just freezes at the top fraction (where it just displays the header links – Lyrics Home, Home, Blogs, Forums….)

    sometimes when i click refresh it gives some debug error in the /cs/ thingy (a yellow / white page with red font)…

    hope that helps !

    Send me the error page when you get it next time. That will help me explain the problem to Telligent (the makers of the software) and see if they have any solution.

    I've upgraded the forum to the latest release. It is supposed to fix performance and reliability issues. Please let me know how your experience is going and if you continue to see slowness.

    I'll post a more detail annoucement in the Announcements Section later with list of updates and stuff.

    THanks,

    The forum definetly works faster now, thanx admin. What happened to the coloured texts and the bit where it shows how many people have viewed a topic?

    Thanks for your reply.

    I'm working on getting the # of viewed part back. Can you explain the coloured text part?

    We used to be able to change the colour of our texts a few weeks ago but I cant see that button now?

    I'll see what I can do about that. The texteditors have changed (for the better) and seems like that option has been disabled. If you know HTML you can still get the colors in your font via the proper HTML tag. Just click on the HTML button in the toolbar.

    Optionally you can paste from Word but that seems too much trouble for just posting.

    I have tried pasting from Word, but it didn't seem to work?

    (the colors are still missing?)
