Page load, hanging up over graphics

Postby Spokavriel » Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:50 am

I'm not entirely certain why and it might just be a problem with my browser but since switching servers the smaller graphics incorporated into the site have been delayed in loading and clicking on a link won't actually start loading the next page until after the icons file in. For me it has appeared as if all the icons that aren't Smiles have had their code changed to make them all No Cash allowed.

I've had the problem occasionally as well, but for me it is normally only a couple seconds... 2 times it has been around 30 seconds though.

For me, the page loading always times out. I then press "back" in the browser and click the link again. The page loads instantly.

Also, Konqueror notified me that "page has coding errors":
Error: styles/prosilver/template/styleswitcher.js: ReferenceError: Can't find variable: onload_functions

And there's what Firefox says:
Error: onload_functions is not defined
Source File: styles/prosilver/template/styleswitcher.js
Line: 154

That's it. I just disabled images from fukufics.com in Firefox and the forum became usable for me.
I'll continue browsing it without images, for now.

I keep the images turned off when I browse unless I need to look at something, and the browser still sits down and contemplates the meaning of life before deciding to load the page. It doesn't do this all the time, more like once every five or six page loads, but it's still annoying.

The CSS for the site images are scripted relatively aren't they? I mean they don't have the server address for the old server to look there or say at the BB software site before looking on the current server do they?

I just noticed that it's a BROWSER COMPATIBILITY problem.
The site works perfectly in m$ Internet Explorer 6 but hangs in Firefox and Konqueror.

The outrage! :evil:

As an old Linux user, I am deeply offended.
Not to say I have serious problems accessing the forum. :x

P.S. Even IE has the timeout problems if to the lesser degree.

I'm using Firefox 3, and I'm having next to no problem. And by "next to", sometimes a few of the "new post" images won't load.

I'm using the latest Firefox and for the most part I have no problems, although probably every 10 times I go to the site the initial access with either timeout or be very slow (I jump straight into the new posts list using http://www.fukufics.com/search.php?search_id=newposts as my link in case that has anything to do with it). Once loaded though, I have no problems from then on out while browsing the site, so the caching is definitely working for me.

Perhaps it has more to do with routing between where you are and where the site is based? Could there be a bad connection somewhere?

I'd hazard a guess that most of us having this problem have page loads for the site in excess of 100 page views a day.

I should note, I am using IE8... and have had as stated before minor issues with the loading, but not big ones.

The reason I wonder if it might be how the CSS is written or where the sites graphics are is because I am not seeing any lag at all from images loaded from Photo Bucket or Image Shack but the site graphics are some times taking a whole minute to load in even though I have already had those graphics loaded not even 15 seconds before going from thread to thread in Fan Art or Spamville. Just a for instance.
