Solved Slow Loading Times
#1
I think the hamster needs to be replaced. The site is taking ages to load up for me. Problem on the phone and PC. Other sites load fine.

Feck, didn't see the other thread.
I'd blame the slow loading speed but that will get me in trouble😜

Ok so we finally got to the full bottom of this issue and its fixed HOWEVER theres drawbacks to it, images are now caching for a much longer perios of time meaning that if your seeing someothing iffy its probable old.

also, it will be slower to tell you whats read and unread. If we find a way around that we will implement it

To try and limit bandwidth and increase our load times and other issues we are taking the following steps:

A, Archiving the transfer section. It has become dorment to it will be archived for the moment.

B, Sorry the 2 users that like it but we will be removing the Original and Alternative themes from the site.

C, Changing the bottom links from images to words.

Load times still are incredibly slow for me, both via phone & laptop. If anything they seem slower. Just an observation / info pass on.

Still very slow, if the host doesn't come up with solutions maybe we might need to change.

According to my watch we are now at 5 second loading time which is fine. We will give it a week or two and see if the hosts can maintain that, if not we will have to pack our bags.
