So it seems that the forum homepage will update once per day. Every morning it's been resetting, and staying exactly the same until the next morning.

Just to clarify:

Samsung j3, chrome browser, adguard is on, cookies repeatedly cleared, phone never turned off. Full desktop mode, current FOTY skin. No problems on other sites (fordsix, ford-trucks, ESPN, atlas obscura, local news, Craigslist. No social media at all)

heya blue, sorry for the delay in responding, the Schwim Dandy camp went on a road trip and my laptop passed away so I was regretfully disconnected.

It was so lonely and cold.

Just so we have a nice starting point, can I ask the current issue? I think you're using a browser on a mobile phone, are you using the mobile, mobile/desktop or pure desktop theme? Are you averse to using or have you already tried Tapatalk? Is it that it's still slow? Is the forum index not updating? Are you still seeing only the front page when you click a link?

Not trying to be dense about it but don't want to waste any time making suggestions to solve issues you don't have.

Not to pile on to the complaints but FSB has been redonkadonk slow for the last few weeks. So slow that I sometimes give up trying to load the page and close the tab figuring I'll check it out later.

The slowness has been pretty much resolved on my end. Yes, using chrome and the full desktop theme on am android phone. I don't do apps.

The only issue I seem to be encountering still is the forum home page (index if you will, not the main FSB page) isn't updating but once a day. It'll show the same 'last post replied to' all day and the same notifications ive already cleared.

Hi there Blue,

If the page is updating for you on your desktop browser but not your phone's browser then the problem is very likely the fact that your phone is caching the page and the cache is expiring in a day's time. This is something the phone does to save data and speed up page loads. Usually, you can alter this setting but the stock browser that came with the phone likely won't allow tinkering at such a level.

There's two things I can think of as a workaround to your issue.

1) Use a different page: Instead of loading the home page, you can load the "posts made in last day page instead. This will always show the posts made in the last 24 hours and since it redirects to a dynamic search URL, it should force a new page generation every time the URL changes, which occurs any time a new post is made.

2) Use a different browser: Most modern phone browsers understand a website's directive not to cache a page. To explain a bit, this site's forum index page explicitly tells browsers not to cache it:

Code:
	<!-- no cache headers -->
	<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
	<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="-1" />
	<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
	<!-- end no cache headers -->
but I think your phone is ignoring those. Trying another popular browser(Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin, Opera, etc. forever and ever) will likely get you into a browser that will obey the flags being passed. If you're already using one of these browsers, we might be able to change the way in which it behaves. Just let me know what you're using.

I don't use anything but my phone. Using chrome. Currently when I want to access FSB, I go to the main home page. Then I go to the forum index and its the same all day.

They seem to be having a heck of a time recently. It's nothing we can fix, unfortunately. Just another storm we've got to weather :)

Me too. Slow. Takes about 20 seconds (timed over several attempts) to move from one page to another.

My phone just updated itself, so maybe something will improve

They replied at the help desk saying the ticket is still open, and they are working on it.

“Seems like this was already escalated by JB,

We've been sending slowness issues up to the techs for them to figure it out.
They have been testing a fix on some test sites, but still waiting for a full global fix.
Will keep you updated on this.

Ed”

Logged in on my laptop, and only had troubles with slowness. None of my other issues appeared. My phone this morning though is still the same old slug

Did the slowness clear up or is it still happening? Did you get any alerts in your browser (bottom left) stating waiting/connecting to anything specific?

No, it's unbearably slow today. Takes Minutes to open any page or section.

I'm on a phone... there's no notification bar in the browser.
