Server update - 11/2/2017

Recommended Posts

I made a server update and configuration change today at 12:00 est. I updated us to a technology called HTTP2. It should more than double the speed of pages loading for you. 

Please let me know if you any issues.

Am I the only one getting a lot of hanging at "Loading" when selecting page 2/Last Page etc on forum topics?  Experienced on a few different browsers and systems.

That was happening for me too.  I did a different update today.  Please let me know if it continues.

Seems to be the same so far. It might be something to do with the advertisements?  I turned on an ad blocker to see if that made a difference and it works ok with it on.

The only issue I do have actually is when I'm in a thread and try to go forward or back a page it won't actually load. It will go there but I ave to click refresh every time. Both my phone and Chrome on my work computer are like that. 

I didn't read through everything when I posted ^ that. I'll try and see if it's still doing that. 

Still did it on Chrome.

I still have the "loading" problem too.

Like CCAP, I just click on the reload/refresh icon thingy and the page loads properly and instantly.

It did it to me just now on my phone but I can't see the debugger on there. It's on my radar and I'll be investigating it.

Just a note, I was able to find the cause, and @frogger is correct it is an issue with one of the ads.  I haven't figured out which ad it is yet, but I'm on it.

Another update: I've narrowed it down to happening only in very specific scenarios.  It no longer appears to be caused by the ads, it appears the ads' failure to load is a symptom of an issue with the programming of the software.  I have opened a ticket with the software provider.

Thanks Drew, I've checked a handful of multi-page threads and it looks like the patch worked.

Great to hear.  Hopefully you've turned ad-blocker back off

Yes I made sure it works with the adblocker off and the site is whitelisted again.

Thanks

I have noticed weirdness in the email notifications.   Instead of seeing the actual response to a comment in the email, I see weird stuff like '18 minutes ago' or the first few words of a response.   I'm also getting email notifications on threads I haven't followed (but have posted a comment in).
