I don't think it's related to facebook or whatnot unless that's code that runs server side?
I've got (and have had) facebook disconnect for a long time, plus all facebook domains statically resolve to a local network IP with a basic web server that displays an empty page and the site still runs slow randomly.

Woop for like button's return!

IPB has helped us in the past with issues like these. Although I think the current issues are all us and not IPB, why? Because we haven't upgraded IPB for at least a year or more?

I'm also interested to know what can be "pruned" from the database without losing content? I'm pretty sure all logs are already rotated so they don't get huge.

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't trust mods with access to prune/clean the database. That's a task reserved for Admins and Developers IMO.


Yeah, that's a bad idea letting me do that! :p

Can anyone on Chrome experiencing issues test these 2 guys out for me?

I have to say I nearly never see load time issues. The worst I've seen is like, 5 seconds to post.

I have all facebook/twitter etc linky things blocked.

For those encountering issues with Chrome, perhaps take a look at:
https://chrome.googl...ibcbegplfmcfigp
https://chrome.googl...akheieifhpjdfeo

Neither app has ever caused my problems, and it's dramatically improved my browsing life (I'm in what's called a Congestion Zone in Australia. We have an 8mbps connection, but the back haul isn't even close to being able to provide that speed for us and those around us.)

I literally never see slow downs and would like to know if it's related. It will help you rule out Facebook as the issue at the very least.

Installed them both but they block the ads too, so disabled them because I was too lazy to find out how to whitelist ads.

I've realized that lives of many people would be incomplete if they didn't have a chance to complain about every little thing.

This is especially true when talking about a product or service that doesn't cost them anything.

Replying to a thread using fast reply takes about ten seconds.
Switching between pages takes about five seconds.
Going from thread view into advanced reply view takes about ten seconds.

Sometimes the site loads so slowly I give up and go do something else!

No issues on other sites, and I visit sites hosted all around the world. Can even stream videos from foreign soil without buffering.

Edit:

Just noticed my status bar gets stuck at "Waiting for eu.projectsunblock.com ..." - slow advert maybe?

The attempted derailers of this thread are annoying, I'm sure there are "fun" threads for you to go talk in.
