The forum has become very clunky and slow..

It can’t just be me experiencing this.. ? 🤔

Anyone else finding the forum really slow and clunky recently.. ?
It was really smooth and speedy when the switch over happened.. but now it’s akin to a 2mb RadioShack pc with 1000 pictures of naked girls on it.. ? (It was a friends pc not mine)

Bonjour.

Agree, it comes and goes for me. Some symptoms:

-- Seems to stall when loading a new page, the browser indicates the wait.

-- Sometimes avatars and other pics don't load and show placeholders, then load later.

It's been like this for me too (I know Mike's dealing, but thought it worth mentioning in case the numbers matter etc. It's OK this morning (I'm in the UK) but was awful last night.)

Yes, highly variable. An issue with the SSL certificate that we haven’t been able to diagnose yet. This conversion to a new host hasn’t been easy…

I guess this would apply to the sister Fender site as well? I am hitting it at both.

Still highly variable - very fast or very slow. Still troubleshooting.

FYI, Mike: this week and this weekend has been very bad. Long waits on page responses and certain functionality doesn't function (selector boxes not appearing) or indicate processing slow (alerts populating).

Thanks as always for your efforts.

Agree - it’s driving me crazy! We are buying new SSL certificates from another provider to see if that will solve the problem. We have plenty of bandwidth on the new server, and it continues to appear to be the SSL connection. Will keep you posted.

FWIW, this site's "sister site," The Fender Forum has been displaying a "closed for upgrades" message for nearly a week. It's not just slow, it's DOWN.

Yes, I shut it down while we diagnose this IT problem. Very sorry.
