Hey all,
          Recently it has started to take a very long time to post anything on my website. Navigation around the website is quick and smooth, everything is running normally, except when you go to make a reply or post a topic, it can take upwards of 10 seconds to load and make the post. I have not installed anything or changed anything before this started occuring so I am unsure as to what could be the cause. I asked the hosting provider and they ran tests and said the speed was fine and it could be a scripting error?

I have cleaned the forum using the tools etc but I am still having the problem, any thoughts?

Kind Regards,
Tom

Are there a large number of members set to receive notifications on the topic/forum you're posting in?

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

There are only around 20 members on the forum and they are all having the same slow posting speed, im not sure of the notifications, but surely only 20 members wouldnt affect that?

Hi,

I just created a test topic on your site, and it was more like 3 seconds.

If ocPortal needs to send out emails, that'll slow it down a bit. Turning on the mail queue option probably speeds things up a bit, if that's part of the problem.

We are working on performance improvements for v10. One issue is that when you post on the forum, it does do an intermediate redirect to jump to the latest post, which makes things a bit slower than it needs to be. I'll see if we can get rid of that.

Thanks chris, yes it has been a bit faster today, the other day when I first posted the message it was unbearable.

We're saying probably next year, but no firm commitment at this point. It's a challenging release, we're doing a lot of things in it.

Oh and I just…
  1. Added hint about enabling the e-mail queue option to our optimisation tutorial. Definitely if there are a lot of people with notifications, it would help. E-mailing can be slow.
  2. Did remove one of the direct hops when posting in a topic.
