Question?

post #1 of 23

Is the website faster for everyone else. It is here but of course I'm sitting almost on top of the server. It's not a real good indication of what's going on for you all. Only one high speed switch between me and the server..

I definately haven't been experiencing the slowdowns which were happening before you installed the new software, or whatever it was you did.

Much better, thanks dchan. I am no longer getting the "waiting for Epic" message. It is a vast improvement.
Thanks,
RD
P.S. Where is the "Quick Reply" button?

it's much, much faster, both on a work connection and my home wireless signal (in Australia). Interestingly, even though you have to click something to make the "fast" reply window work, the whole process is much faster; when you click 'post it', it posts it up extremely fast.

Much better....I actually stopped dropping by for a while...due to the fact that the site was just gagging.....Moving along nicely now.....

What upgrades?

But how does one define fast? And how does the terrain of the posting effect the speed? Pages load faster now for me, but from who's perspective should the speed of the words dissemination be measured? Would the site be faster still with a Metron server?

(Oh and yeah, it rocks now. Thanks!)

David, all seems well here. I do have a question tho. I use a dsl connection and all is well, however at my friends in So.Cal this weekend I tried signing on using his dial up connection and it took so long to connect that Epic "got bored" and returned to the sign in page never letting me sign in. Not a major problem but was just wondering if dial up users have problems or was it just my friends dial up server?
Hope to see you soon at SB. Snow permitting.

It's the page with the feather pen next to the quote button in each posting.

yes, but....

according to the search bar at the top of the web page (I entered from the home page via "view new posts", my search took 25,407.48 seconds. Funny, it seemed a lot faster than that!!

Latest versions of PHP 5.0.5 and Mysql 4.1.15

Vbulletin upgrade to 3.5.1

I suspect the biggest speed booster was mysql and php combo. There was a known bug that caused serialization of data to really slow down the system.

Now as I watch processor utilization, we are pushing 3-5% when 200+ users. I think we will be good for a while on hardware!

Si!!!!! What is the difference 'tween quick reply and normal reply?

Gracias.

Big difference here. Since I was a complainer before, I send you a six ski salute for the improvement.

hey DC, I don't if this is just me (I'm running Firefox) but I just posted and left clear paragraphs with an extra space between each one but it came out as just an extra space (not line). I went back to edit and made sure the paragraphs were there but it just came out the same. This was using quick reply I think. That should have been an empty line before this. I'm sure there is a way around it but just to let you know it is happening that way.

That goes under the heading of 'I don't see why that would work' but I'll try it.

First go here is just clearing the cache. I'm on 1.0.4 right now and I'll download the upgrade later.

But first seeing if this new paragraph will look how it does while I type it.

Whodathunk something like clearing the cache would fix that problem?

Regardless the new improved cache cleared version allows me to

create paragraphs



or just random annoying

spaces like a champion.

Thanks.

The new version of vBulletin uses a lot of AJAX (asynchronous JavaScript And XML), including the posting using the Quick Reply. That's why you have to click the "Quick Reply" button to open the box; it starts the async JavaScript process. That's why the post doesn't have to redraw the entire page (just seems to add the post at the bottom of what's already there).

Edit post is pretty cool, too, since it does an in-place edit.

Have you looked at the username field in the search and PM To boxes? The AJAX does a dynamic search as you type. Gotta love it.
