Product Home comment

Post by oftentired » Sat Jul 10, 2010 6:11 pm

I like the new look of the Product Home webpage and choice of Icon. However, it invokes one of my pet peeves.

When I load the page it fails to resize in the browser left <─> right making it necessary to use the bottom scrollbar to see the content of the page on the right side. And I have to scroll back to the left if I want to see that.

I attached a screenshot.

I get the same on my 1024x768 res. screen. I guess it might have been designed on a higher res. screen and not for the more common 1024x768, not good if that's what it is!
BTW a bit OT but are you finding this forum very slow when entering or replying to posts?

I'm running my resolution at 1024X768 which seems to work best for my eyeballs.

When I make reply to a post I would estimate about 70% of the time the forum response is slightly faster than molasses on a cold day. The rest of the time it moves along OK but still not so fast that I would brag about it. .... Took about 20 seconds for this reply to come back accomplished.

Yeah, perhaps the DB needs reorganizing!

EDIT: Just timed the SUBMIT and it took 32 seconds!!

The webpage width is exactly 1024. I guess i can make it a a little smaller so that you don't have to scroll.
I also found the forum is slow when posting. I will look into it.

I'm surprised about that, have you allowed for the vertical scrollbar? Even that wouldn't really account for the large horizontal scroll that's needed to see all the page. Out of curiosity, what resolution are you designing the page on?
BTW both the Preview and Submit still taking ages to do.

I have a 1920x1080 monitor here. :)
I have reduced the width of the web pages to 980. I hope that will be better for you.

Right now, I don't know what makes the forum so slow to post. I pruned posts more than one year old, and recreated the search index. No help at all. It takes about 10 seconds for me to make a post.

The slow-posting problem has been traced back to the option of checking user IP against a DNSBL blacklist (apparently an online service which takes time to access). After that option is disabled, posting is lightning fast again. Thank god! That definitely made my day.

The website's a lot better now. All the objects can now be seen without having to use the horizontal scroll bar. However, the horizontal scroll bar is still showing. It's as if there's an invisible object on the right side somewhere.

EDIT: Ah, that's better, no more slow response.

Not it is lightning fast. I for one am addicted to instant online gratification. Waiting 10 or more seconds for any webpage takes me back to the days of dial-up modem and having time to read a chapter in a book waiting for a webpage to load.

Does it still take more than 10 seconds for you? It takes less than one second here.

I guess he meant Now not Not :D (I may be wrong).

EDIT: Yes, it is fast now.

No. EssBeeman is right; it should read "Now"

Yeah I typo'd at work. For some reason I make more typing errors at work than anywhere else I may be.
