    What OS / Browser are you using ?

    Has it suddenly changed ?

    Can you ensure you have applied any browser updates and then clear your browser's cache and let us know the outcome of how it performs....

    I use my phone 99% of the time. iPhone 7 iOS 11.0.3 with safari.
    It’s not a particularly new thing but does seem to be getting worse.
    If I press a button to move from Say the bog to the forum it starts (blue line at top moves)
    But then stops for approximately 13-15 seconds then continues to load.
    No idea how to clear the cache

      To add to that I’ve just downloaded google browser from App Store so it’s got no data hanging about in it and is up to date and it’s the same.
      Just done an internet speed test with ping of 11 down of 47 and up of 21.

    Yeah, it's been getting slower over time. I think it's all the bloating on ads etc. I'm a bit of a tech head, and my pc is high spec. This is the slowest site I use.

    • I confirm that.

        I think that the 'ning' platform used here isn't really a good platform. Maybe Phil should think of moving it to a better platform?

          Ning has also given a lot of issues over the years I seem to remember? more than any other forum I go on.

          Mine too is slow. 16gb 3000mhz ram on 64bit firefox with fibre internet and its still slow.

            How about advert free version for those that pay the subscription...
            • Since downloading Ad blocker I get zero ads pop up. I don't find LJN any slower than any of the other websites/forums I follow, the only time it really slows up for me is when site maintenance is taking place.
