    New software "speed?"

    Are there some options I need to turn on/off to improve performance? This is slower than PF2 was on its bad days. 15-20 sec for forums, threads, control panel, everything --- t'ain't my ISP --- sciforums is fine, chemical forums is fine --- PF is ssssllllloooooowwwwwww.

    Well that really surprises me. The actual file sizes of each page are reduced by 20% and the new forum code is supposed to be better optimized and faster. Maybe you just need to wait for things to be cached. I'm on cable internet and PF takes about 2 seconds for every page to load. Hmmm...

    Okay --- ran a few "experiments" --- navigating in my normal fashion (forum to thread to next page and back, back, back on the browser bar) it's 6-10 sec to load at each step, and around 10 to "unload" with each "back" step. Using the "forum jump" at the bottom of pages (in the forums, or in the threads) runs around 15 sec (too slow to do more than once or twice), no hints of new topics or anything else, and an accidental "back" is a real mess.

    Is there some "cleaner, more efficient" navigational method to be used with the "cleaner, more efficient" code?

    First time i've seen bystander get a little testy :biggrin:

    To be honest I'm not sure why you are having so much trouble with loading time. My home and school computer loads pages in 1-2 seconds. Is anyone else have long load times?

    Can you run a tracert for me bystander to see if there is an outside influence?

    By and large I have no problems with loading, although occassionally it does take a considerable amount of time for pages to load. For me it only seems to be a random occurrence with low probability of happening though.

    pf seems fine to me. I can only suppose it's neither your local connection, nor pf itself, but some router/pipe between you and pf.

    Caught things busy enough today to see sorta what's going on --- looks like I'm getting "refresh" triggered on every navigation step. Now all I gotta do is find how to turn that off.
