Forum So Slow--Is It My Computer?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I love this forum, but it is super slow going from post to post. I have deleted my cookies, but that didn't help. Other forums I am on are not slow, so wondering if this is going to get better?? I hope so, because I want to read alot of the old posts to get alot of info, but not when it is so slow to go from post to post.

It's working fine for me and my laptop is about five years old (practically ancient in the computer world :lol: ). You could try switching browsers if it keeps running slow. I'm using google chrome, but I like firefox too.

I always use Firefox and never have a problem.

Perfectly fine using my Mac, Firefox browser and Verizon FIOS connection.

I have Verizon's slowest "high speed" internet (not FIOS, but not dial up) and am running google chrome on a five year old PC. I also tried it in Firefox just now to test the speed. Pages load pretty much instantly. In fact, sometimes I am too fast answering replies and I get the error message that Admin has made it so I can't answer in 20 seconds. SO I know it is loading fast for me. :D

Using an iPad and AT&T or Sprint Overdrive, wotks well. Occasionally, it slows or stops but I think that is my wifi s fighting over the iPad. :) On the regular computer with AT&T, it's great.

Thanks, Scott.

I am using a netbook I got last Christmas, so assume it has up to date stuff. I have the highest speed internet through our Centurylink phone company, as I use the internet for our business, so I know it works fast enough. I use Google(don't know what chrome is) as my search engine. Anything else I can try?

I'm sorry if this post started out sounding "negative". That was not my intention. It honestly just keeps loading slow, and I am not a "tech" person, so didn't know if there was anything I should be doing on my end, as far a settings or something.

It takes about 30 seconds for my page to go to the next page.

Okay, I just came to my desktop computer, and my pages load normal, like in 5 seconds. Must be something about the netbook. But, in the netbook's defense, it isn't unusually slow when I browse other places. I guess their is too much info for my little netbook to reload on every page--maybe this will help someone else down the road that is using a netbook.

I have health issues that keep me for sitting up too long, so I tend to read through my forums in my recliner on my netbook.

You may be able to improve your load times by going to your settings and specifying a lower per-page count of topics and posts. The board default is 25 topics per page and 15 posts per page. Setting smaller numbers will break long lists up into smaller chunks, which will load faster and use less memory to display. The downside is that to read the whole thing, there will be more pages to load.
