    Site Speed , Maintenance and feedback please

    Hi guys,

    Because of repeated complaints of slow speeds we've been experimenting today. We've made some changes to the database , the server and have also disabled the video's and gallery slots on the homepage. The Gallery and video sections are still accessible from the tabs at the top.

    Those of you that have experienced slow speeds please give feed back in this thread , if feedback is not given we will assume that the problem has been resolved. Also because of the drastic changes we've done please clear your cookies and cache before leaving feedback.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just to note , we have also now tested the page speeds in the following locations :

    1. India
    2. Pakistan
    3. USA
    4. UK
    5. And various other countries in Europe.e

    Server response time and page load times have been optimal and very little difference between them all ( if any difference at all )

    Those of you that have issues still with site loading please goto :

    http://www.whatismyip.com/

    Note down your IP address and send me a PM with it , I will then do a trace route and test the server from your location. If i test the route and it checks out ok then its will 120% be your connection, ISP or computer that is causing issues.

    Tons of videos and gallery definitely decrease the speed of the website....I notice few days ago, but now it is fine with me.

    Plz take a look at ''new posts'' button..It lags too much..

    On other forums as soon as a thread gets a comment or is posted it comes on top of the list when ''new posts'' or todays posts button is clicked.
    That doesnt happen over here...
    This poses a hinderance for people wanting to join in an ongoing discussion.

    If the section has been removed for bandwidth issues,please move "Your photography" thread elsewhere so that people can show off their clicks.

    That is correct , I have no idea why but a moderator or admin must have moved all the threads and locked it for posting , this is not a technical problem. If the admins/moderators would like it opened for posting again let me know.

    Max Upload size in PHP is 8MB, however you also have a upload time out so if you have a slow connection and your 5MB files take over 90 seconds to upload then it will time out and decline an upload. There is no real reason to have to upload a 5mb file however, you can use most photo editing programs to "save to web" which will decrease image sizes considerably.

    The sections under : http://www.pakistanaffairs.pk/forums...amp-Multimedia

    Have indeed been removed from public view some time ago because of the addition of the gallery and video sections. A moderator has already moved that thread by the looks of things.

    Too slow. There's a cricket site with live updating of alerts/PM's and a twitter like profile page (Which is awesome) and it's faster too, and has loads of members.

    This is at least 10 times slower, despite not having as many features or guests.
