Jeff, the websites loads slowly for me on multiple devices over several platforms. Is that on the server side or the framework? Anyone else having issues?February 22, 2016 at 7:50 am #79229

Not sure — I will check into this.February 22, 2016 at 8:49 am #79231
Thanks, Jeff.February 23, 2016 at 2:51 pm #79255Philip YParticipant
Yes, I am having the same issue as well.February 23, 2016 at 9:40 pm #79260Francine AParticipant

Okay, we’re looking into this. As a benchmark, the load time for https://socalhiker.net (our homepage) was as follows:
Load time of https://socalhiker.net w. Pingdom Tools: 3.89 s from San Jose, California, USA. Size: 3.8 MB. Rqsts: 566. http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/dZiMlp/https://socalhiker.net
Is there a particular page that seems to be loading slowly? If you don’t mind, try entering the URL of that page at the speed test: http://tools.pingdom.com and post the results as a reply to this topic.
Thanks!February 24, 2016 at 9:03 am #79271
It’s every page I’ve browsed through on the forum. That includes Google search results links. I’m doing Mt. Wilson Saturday. I searched for “mt. wilson via chantry flats” and you were the top result. I clicked it and it’s taking longer than it should. I work for the State of California and the network here is as quick as it gets. It isn’t on my end.
Also, I’m still working through the formatting of the site. I’ve built a few forums using vBulletin so I am obviously more familiar with that format, but I can’t figure out how to attached a file. I screen capped the ping results from the test but don’t see where to attach it unless it’s stored on another site. Maybe it’s just for this sub-forum.
Anyways, I ran the test. It says the site is “As Fast As Lightning” so I don’t value those test results.
The email message:
Subject: Load time test of https://socalhiker.net on February 23 at 22:02:18 with Pingdom Tools
I just tested https://socalhiker.net with the Full Page Test in Pingdom Tools.
This specific test was done on February 23 at 22:02:18 from San Jose, California, USA. The web page took 3.89 s to load, used 566 requests, and weighed in at 3.8 MB.
The Google Page Speed performance grade for this web page is 63/100
There’s a ton of more information you can check out here: http://fpt.pingdom.com#!/dZiMlp/https://socalhiker.net
I think it shows that the web page is “FAST AS LIGHTNING”

Wait. Those are the test results you ran. Hang on.February 24, 2016 at 9:09 am #79273
This is more like it:
Your website is slower than 96% of all tested websites

60 seconds is really, really bad. 🙁 Thanks for running the tests Joseph. I’m going to dig into this tonight.
I’ve setup forums with vBulletin before as well. I haven’t enabled file uploads to the forums here, but maybe I should reconsider that.February 24, 2016 at 11:39 am #79284

I don’t mean to bug about this but as a site admin I’d want to know. I mentioned it in the other thread about the new badges because I love the idea of building a community of local hikers but it’s gonna be tough with the page load times.
Also, Greg Glass got me involved in the Challenge and is my summit pal. I saw you tagged him in that FB post. 😉February 24, 2016 at 6:17 pm #79293Philip YParticipant
Excellent! Much faster. It has taken 3 and 10 seconds for me to gain access to the site and have the ability to post this.March 1, 2016 at 3:26 pm #79440
Hasn’t changed at all on my end. Still super slow. Any progress, Jeff?March 2, 2016 at 4:09 pm #79457

We’re working on it.
We’ve switched our CDN and are seeing some better performance already:May 7, 2016 at 8:46 pm #80667JoelParticipant
