Hi All,

Please help me identify any speed issues you may be experiencing.

Do these issues occur at a specific time?
Do they occur on mobile or desktop or both?
Does the status bar (bottom left) say "loading ..." or anything while its loading? If so can you post what it is loading?
Anything else you may have noticed.

Thanks guys, the site has been fine for me so I haven't noticed it at all.

I've made some changes to our CDN and caching. Please give it a go for a day or two and give me any feedback you have.

 

Thanks,

Christian

The speed issues im having are mostly when using pc. Mobile  app isn't lightning either but is ok. When on pc in the bottom left corner i get waiting for sau.com and then waiting for google ad services and after about a minute the next page will actually load. I have held off in saying anything till now in the hope it will resolve itself but that hasn't happened.

Cheers Bill

Thanks Bill,

Can you keep an eye on it over the next day or two and let me know if it seems any better?

Thanks,

I'm not much help since I don't visit all the time, but I hadn't noticed a speed issue lately, and I haven't noticed it being better since the changes...

Happy to report the speed issues i was experiencing are a thing of the past. Thanks @PranK for working your magic. It's gone from tortoise speed to skyline speed:thanks:

It has been snappy since you started this thread.  Previously there were times (random, apparently) when it would take ages to load any page.

I have been having issues connecting to SAU....all other forum sites I visit are fine, just SAU.  I sometimes get the DOS based view [blue text, and just a list of the forum pages] rather than the normal GUI forums page.

If I get the DOS view then I cannot open any other pages, it usually comes up with a blank screen.  If I leave and come back in 10-15 minutes its then usually OK.

 

The other thing that has just started to happen as well, the forums page comes up OK then it reloads straight away and I get a blank screen [address in address bar is still OK].

Wow! That all sounds really screwy!

Can you take some screen shots next time? This is really bizarre. 

What OS / Browser are you using? Has it been different over the past 24hrs?

I'll take screen shots when I can...just now had to try to get into SAU 3 times...3rd time lucky.

Was Ok 1 or 2 days ago, didn't notice a difference till this morning tbh.  Still using IE...been lazy,  really should have gone over to Chrome or Edge.  Used to use Firefox but my virus checker was saying FF was out of date etc so gave up on FF.

Shortly after you made the quoted post, I could not reply to any threads for the whole afternoon.  The reply box at the bottom was grey and unresponsive.  Highlighting any text in a post did not bring a pop up "quote the selected" and there were no quote buttons anywhere.  I wouldn't normally say anything about this, because it has happened to me many times in the past (and yes, I was logged in), but the timing of you "making some changes" might be more than a coincidence.

Ok thanks for letting me know. It's some of the coad behind the reply box that has been changed so that makes sense but please let me know if it happens again (if it happens you can get me via the contact form or even via the Facebook page if PM's don't work).

Thank you!
