I've been having minor problems with the forums along these lines for months now

I first identified it as an ISP problem as when changing pages in the forum it would hang and then I would completely lose my internet connection

It would return if I used the repair facility - I've given my ISP a bit of verbal over this

It was only after a time that I realised this only occurred with this site

It happens quite frequently, but I just either go back one page then forward again, refresh the page a couple of times, or do the repair whereupon it loads the required page

I think it must be a server issue but since no-one else was complaining about it I couldn't be certain it wasn't my network timing out

Hi Nemo

I think the particular problem I'm having has cropped up before, because the last post I can see is post number 80. Since I have posted on there today, and How has added a second, it's the problem of the next page not appearing. I gather that some posters can see 20, 30 or more posts per page, but I have only ever seen 10 per page and it normally causes no problems.

Hi Robert

Yes, I think Tim has the solution for that problem

If he didn't then I would have suspected the server was at fault in not updating the page, but it's strange how some people see the posts and some don't

Regards

Nemo

Actually Robert, I've got the same problem - lol

I can only see as far as post 80 too

Is it because the thread has been archived in some way I wonder?

Hi Nemo

Well, it does seem to happen to threads that have been inactive for a few months.

Bob:
Tonight was an awful mess in trying to post over here too.
Photobucket is acting up....Newspaper Archive is slower than an Ostrog thread....and these boards which the overpaid administrator is supposed to be keeping up to date is just a bitch.

I had the same problem after posting at 9am GMT. This too was to an older thread. I couldn't get back to the main screen, Google timed out saying it couldn't find jtrforums.com, then threw me off.
I've made several attempts to log back on since then, finally succeeding at midday GMT.

Dave:

Apologies for the problems you had...it drove me nuts trying to simply stay on the boards.
Not that Tim made any valuable posts or anything like that, but other people did and it was difficult to stay on.
Hopefully, it won't be a problem tomorrow.

I just posted on the Grosevenor Sq thread - and can't see my own post. That's because there were 10 posts on the thread.
