Has anyone else besides me found the forum to be laggy as hell on a PC or Mac lately? I think Europa has experienced this as well, but I'm not sure. Navigation is very slow and pages take forever to load completely. It doesn't happen all the time, only occasionally.

BTW, other sites load fine and navigate very quickly.

Next time it happens, let me know via PM. The host has had DDOS attacks which I've noticed impacts our site. Sunday in particular was problematic for the site, as a result of these attacks.

I came across an issue as a result of the migration. Some image URLs were being called by the old CDN. Since the URLs no longer existed, certain threads might take longer to render. I suppose if you multiply this across hundreds of threads, it might impact the overall speed of the site.

In any event, I've found some great help at XenForo and the issue has been resolved.

Not computer related, but iPhone related. I am getting notifications daily of ones on the app that are from days ago. This just started occurring.

I've seen that myself. There is an update in review, though that's not part of the changelog. It's possible it could fix it, but I'm not sure. Let me do some additional research.

Sounds good. Thanks. I also noticed this a good while back, but not since then.

While the iCafe app was out, I had the notifications turned off and used the TapaTalk notifications. No problem there. But when I turned them back on for iCafe, they ran about 5 to 8 hours late. I don't recall any days late. But there could have been and I didn't notice.

@chris I am experiencing article links vanish after tapping them. It goes to the next page, the article appears for 2 seconds, then the screen goes white. I get around that by quickly sending it to Safari before it goes white.

Are you talking about the app? I'm confused?

Yes, the app. When I tap a link, it goes as usual to another page where the article is shown. But the article only shows about 2 seconds, then the screen goes white. I tap the option at the bottom quickly to send it to Safari.

Can you give me a sample of a thread where it happens. I will see if I can reproduce the issue. I have the new version, which may fix it.

I tap the link in first pic. It goes to article in second pic. Vanishes to white in third pic. Article shows for about 2 seconds. Has happened on more than one thread.

That URL seems to have other issues, namely it requires some sort of login to access the content. If it happens elsewhere, please let me know. This seems like less of an app specific issue and a problem with the coding on that page of the Huffington Post.

It appears to be an odd Safari issue. My searching of Google shows that jot 1x1 pixel is specific to Safari. I emptied my caches, but it didn't fix the problem. I submitted an inquiry with the developers to see if they can offer any insight. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks. Out of curiosity, I checked those 2 on Tapa. Worked fine there.
