Maybe moving to a faster server would have been a good idea ?

The current site is really sluggish.

Huh??? We're on two servers now, each of which is faster than the one server we used to be on. We're also in a better data center, with superb network connectivity.

I'm afraid I'll have to agree Will. Receiving a blank page with just the tabs (News, Forum, Equipment etc) for a second or two prior to each page change.

4mb NTL Broadband.

Hope your able to sort it out.

Den, It sounds as if that is the ad server slowing things down, which we had severe problems with at 7ish today. I should have a fix implemented tomorrow.

Will... I'm running 'AdBlock' on 'Firefox' and the site is fine.. Was a bit 'twitchy' late afternoon but, all is well here in Berkshire on a 2Mb pipe '-))

EDIT: B****y well done earlier on today. Must have been a nightmare situation.

This caused problems a while back and it was resolved. I am also experiencing problems. Good luck with the fix.

The ads should all now be in IFRAMEs, which means if the adserver slows down or dies, the site speed shouldn't be affected. Page loads will also be faster.
