Hi

Not sure if this is happening to other users. I can view and use the forums as normal. Until I want to post anything. For example if I want to reply to a forum post everything is fine until I hit post reply.

I then get a blue line pulsing across the top of my screen and 3 blue bars pulsing top right. As if it's thinking about it or buffering. This probably lasts about 30 seconds. Then stops but the page does not update. I have to reload the page to find out if my post was uploaded. If it as the original text I typed is still in the new post dialogue box as if I wanted to upload again?


Hope I explained this enough for someone to help. I stayed off the site for a few days as it drove me silly.


I'm on win 10 and Firefox browser.

Edit. Did not happen when I posted here yet it did straight after when replying in another section ?

Thanks for the replies.

I'm getting this problem 99% of the time. Just posted a thread the page did the buffering thing then settled but didn't update the page. I had to go back to the forum page headers to see if the thread had been posted.
Which it had.

I'm not techie but assume that can't be a busy server ?

It happens to me from time to time W7 & Opera.
Its not a new thing TBH it's been happening on and off for awhile.
So its not the new server causing it @Marcel any thoughts?

It's because of Brexit.



Seriously though, first things first we need to get that search bit fixed. I know Chris says its not a new thing, but I need to rule out it as a contributing factor first.

Funny though every post I have replied to in this thread as worked perfectly as it should. Type reply, hit post reply, page refreshes instantly with my post.
No problems yet the post I made seconds ago in another section gave me the same problems.

Posting this, I got about 2 seconds delay.
