Toad World® Forums

Extremely slow loading of the forum

… this might be because of the performance.

Loading the landing page of the forum takes ages for me and usually doesn’t finish unless I try multiple times. Sometimes it works if I login before visiting the forum.

When tracing the network calls using wget I see this:

So there seems to be something wrong when loading the CSS file for the site.

Hi,

we tested it from more locations and speed is OK.

This seems to be only the case when accessing it through http.

When I use https the performance is acceptable (although still a bit sluggish)
