My Postings still up the creek?

I've tried several times over the past few days to get at My Postings with no luck. Still the same old problem?

IT has been very slow access times for me but it has eventually got there. Its been like that for me since it was brought back online.

The rest of the site is running well thou

No particular problems - somewhat slow at times but ok in the main.

I get into them...a bit slow. Also I can select a old posting but the info inside has gone.

I found they get slightly faster the further back you go,but then around midway back it goes back to ssllooowwww.

I think that "View your Postings" has been hogging resources and has been the cause of the sites problems for quite a while.

Hi All, I remember a few years back Forum ED saying that the 'My posting' folder on his server was causing lots of problems. I invited the ED. to delete all my postings to help aleviate the prob. but nothing was done. Perhaps this is the problem. Cheers, Bill.L.

It seems this is an area that still has to be fixed. Like the rest of you, sometimes it takes forever to load the page.

The trouble is, from a troubleshooting perspective, it's intermittent. One time you will click on it and it's almost instantaneous; another time you can go and make a cup of tea and still nothings happened. On occasions, it simply wont load at all. But I would rather have it in it's present state, than not have it at all.

It's a bit unpredictable as LastChip states above but at least the forum threads are opening okay most of the time.


I think that someone mentioned that the 'View your postings' database goes back 25 pages, well IMHO this may be a bit too much data to access for the server, so if it only went back to (say) 10 pages, this would still give you a reference for your latest threads while, hopefully, speeding the operation up with less chance of getting timed-out. Just a thought ;0)
