    Current Testing Week: 11 January /21

    We are currently doing some testing that is causing some severe slow downs. I apologize for this. We will update a little later. We are moving some data around right now.

    We will likely go offline for 15 minutes. Sorry.

      We have made some changes to improve page load time. We will test the results over the next day or two unless things go sideways.

        Remember that if this forum goes down for a serious amount of time (like more than 2 or 3 hours) news will be posted on the sister board rwg.bz/board but it's of no use to go there to post that RWI is down etc...

              I got some errors loading pages with lots of pics for past few days. Not sure if it's my phone or the forum.

                That's hard to tell with that error message, could well be a local cache issue, can be a time out too but it's not the usual time out message so I couldn't really say unfortunately

                  If i scroll thru thread slowly (thread with lots of pics) I'm ok but if I move a bit faster it gives me this error.

                  Never had this before but I have new phone so this might be the issue (note 20 ultra)

                    It look like a local issue as the server don't use "lazy loading" meaning the page is fully loaded when you browse it, so the speed at which you browse can't have an impact.

                    Maybe worth testing another web browser, Samsung Browser is usually good but give a try to Chrome or Firefox to see if it's better

                      I use chrome actually, I'll try different ones. Thanks

                        On Samsung device I really like Samsung Web browser, follow closely Chrome releases and it follow some styling implemented on RWI, if you choose to make the status bar of the phone disappear while browsing, you'll have a very "app like" experience of the forum

                          Our last change has definitely improved conditions on the forum. Hopefully people are feeling it in a positive way.

                            Maybe I can suggest some IT guy for you to do some optimizations? Site sometimes is extremely slow, especially via Tapatalk - might take a few minutes just to reply to a message.

                              It's actually a tad faster - but not a big margin for me. It went from 30 seconds loading time of the main page to around 27 seconds (without the site being in my cache).
                              My Internet shouldn't make any problems though
                              I'm working in the graphic and webdesign business so I tought I'd look into it - I never really worked with vBulletin but I think maybe more eyes would help.


                              I made some checks:



                              So my internet is not the issue

                              Afterwards I made a Google PageSpeed Test




                              So as you can see the test for Desktop is not good, but not horrible either but the Mobile one is awful.
                              I don't know if that is the reasoning why Tapatalk has such issues - but as far as I've researched Tapatalk is using the vBulletin API so normally that shouldn't do a issue but I can't know for sure of course.


                              So after these steps and some thinking I've came to a conclusion which possibly could help you:


                              1. Have you tried installing LiteSpeed for your servers? It is a really powerful extension which increases loadtimes by a whole lot.
                              I googled and found that it also works with vBulletin but don't quote me on that since the post on LiteSpeed was from 2011

                              2. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the webserver - what about your database?
                              I'd guess that the database is huge and could be a bottleneck if not powerful enough.

                              3. If it isn't the database and you can't or don't want to use LiteSpeed what about a CDN? That could possibly speed things up
