Problems with forum!!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I recently joined. Now it seems that every time I get online, it is taking forever for things to load. It has taken me almost 45 minutes to get to this point. At first I thought it was internet connection, but everything else is working great. When I try view the posts in different sections they either don't load or I get the message that this site is triing to download to my computer. What is going on????

What browser are you using? I saw your post and it opened as fast as I clicked on it. I don't know of any active X content that is not standard that you need. Maybe Jeff will be along soon to help you out or one of the other computer gurus. Hang in there this is a great site!

Big Dee.. I do apologize for the problems you are seeing. There is a known issue with certain browsers that is making everything in the background load before it moves on and does what it should. Some updates were added yesterday that should have fixed some of the lag but I don't know how well it worked.


I've been using Google Chrome and have had no issues.. might be worth a try.


Welcome to the forum by the way.. we are certainly glad to have you on board!
