    Yes, but I'm wondering if it's just another restriction imposed by the iPad.

    Yeah, that's a small mod.

    I notice they run the same version as us, do they have the same issue with the latest post when you use it?

    Yes sometimes it is slow, and sometimes very slow

    I got the stop watch out this arvo.

    Clicking "Home"....Best 15 sec, worst 24 sec before the homepage displayed

    Clicking "Reply With Quote"....Best 20 sec, worst over a minute before the reply window was up.

    Clicking "Post Quick Reply"... Best 15 seconds, worst over a minute for the post to show.


    Tried on three different computers. Results seemed to be about the same. No such problems on other forums

    That's my only beef as well - it seems to take forever to load up and change pages!

    Is it my iPad or the new site program? I can't indent paras.

    As far as those face thingies go, I do get a fleeting glimpse to the RH side of the thread box before it disappears.

    Robert

    Quite aside from the fact that this new site is terribly, frustratingly slow (30 seconds to a minute to navigate between threads, or to open a reply window) there is also a serious issue with the "search function... it is essentially useless. Every search I have tried so far comes up with "Sorry, no matches". I even tried search for the word "scrum" and ........ "Sorry, no matches". WTF?

    When I try using Google's Advanced Search to search the site, I see the results I want, but when I click to go to them, I get this page.... every time

    http://www.rugbyrefs.com/forums/index.php

    It seems the archives are inaccessible because they are located in a sub-directory of http://www.rugbyrefs.com/forums, and you have blocked access and forwarded to the index page

    You need to get rid of that forwarding page so that the archives can be accessed. It is also probably the reason why the search function doesn't work, because it is not looking through the archives, only those posts that have been made since the new software was installed.

    I'll send the server optimisation details to the hosts see if they can make the load time faster, mines not normally that bad, but is slower than before.

    I'll rebuild the search function, I'll probably close the forums for an hour or so to do that as it's quite a server intensive process.
