    sorry to bring this up again but i'm not only finding tmp slow, it's slowing up the rest of my comp. this is probably more to do with my comp than the site, but how do i check that i'm on the simplest style? i'm assuming simplicity = more speed :)
    thankyou

    Most people seem to find the style called "Clean" is the fastest: go to the bottom of the page and at the left hand side you'll see a box with the various options. Set it to "clean" there nd give it a go. If it is the fastest, you can set this as your usual setting in User CP.

    Forum slowed to snail's pace again now. What have you tinkered with?

    As John is currently in the air between London and Madrid, I'd say it was unlikely he'd "tinkered" with anything! :)

    I have no problems here - even on the dodgy super-narrow band connection I have to put up with at work. Maybe it's a problem with your ISP?

    I don't have any problems either.
    But the traffic on the sight was very high yesterday (I wonder why that was ;) ), so maybe that has slowed the server a bit.

    Been very slow to load posts for a few days now. 10 seconds or so of blue screen, before they open.

    It's very quick today whilst at work but at home it has been a little slow.

    Thought it was me! - Glad it's not only my pc that is affected. :D

    An Internet speedcheck can be done here http://speedtester.bt.com/ (other speedcheckers are available :) )

    I'm running XP/Firefox/tMp Clean and, at the moment, a new page loads in under 2 seconds.
