Yeah, there seems to be a loading delay, the frame loads but the actuallt text takes a long time to load, probably about 30s - noticeable anyway.

Yeah, I have noticed some real loading problems. I have even tried three different Email programs: hotmail; MS Express; Outlook. Same problem on all of them.

Alan, is there a glitch in this version of DC?

Color me confused on this one. How are you using email programs to view the internet?

I'm using Firefox 3.1 and it loads fine for me.

I saw it yesterday afternoon - beautiful! I love the new options on the top - very user friendly IMHO. I really like the different colors as well. Not that blue isn't very warm and inviting but I like the plaid and color variations. This morning, it's gone ...

My Email inbox tells me when a response has been received at DC. They produce a handy little hyperlink to reply. Got it?

You are talking about your subscribed threads that give you a link when someone replies to a thread you've either started or replied in. That's different than looking at DC on the internet be it Google Chrome, Microsoft IE, or Firefox. That is something you need to adjust in your mailbox settings, it doesn't have anything to do with DC.

What internet browser do you use to see the board, not the threads you've already posted in?

Yes, you are totally correct. I am hyperlinking into DC in one or the other of the threads to which I am corresponding. It has always been fast and simple to reply.

MS IE6.something . . .

It seems to be getting better, the more I use it. Thanks for your help.

You might want to try downloading Firefox, I'm linking in via the town free internet service and I'm on the end of the service area, I don't even know if Town knows the free service goes this far, and Firefox is still really fast. Just a thought. I have issues all the time with IE which is why I switched.

Marty,

All the links that are included in the email notifications should remain working.

You might want to turn off the right column and see if that helps the page load faster (less stuff to load). You can do this from the UserCP >> Edit Options (on the left) then scroll to the very bottom.
