Title: Fetching Preview Slow
Post by: Spede on June 04, 2014, 02:17:32 PM
Hello. The preview fetching has been really, really slow for me. When the new version of the forum came out (I instantly switched to the theme resembling the older one) first it only took few minutes to fetch the preview but lately the preview fetching has took longer than my lunch breaks (as a matter of fact so long that I haven't bothered to wait anymore)! Less than a week ago I deleted my cookies in order to get the PMs work for me (didn't help, the messages get sent but my browser seems to hang and the only way of me knowing the message was sent is to reload the site and chock my outbox).

There's a possibility that the issue is my oldish browser: I'm running OSX 10.6.8 with Safari 5.1.10 (the last one which work with SL)

I'm running Firefox 29.0.1 on Win7 and have the same problem with preview fetching. Not the biggest problem in the world, but still a little hindering.

Hmm, I'll take a look and see what I can find out. I know that the servers this forum is served on are occasionally quite slow, but if it's a common occurrence, it's probably something with SMF.

(just confirmed it on my browser, Firefox, under 10.9.3)

Please try now, it seems ok for me, having optimized the tables in the DB.

Let's see.

Ten minutes and counting when trying to preview the above text. But if it cannot be fixed, it's not the end of the world; one can always edit a submitted post if there's a typo :)

Try it again, if you don't mind. It seems to be working for me now. Let me know if you got my PM, too.

Oddly, now it's hanging until I click a menu item (like the ADMIN dropdown) at which point it shows the preview. Something weird...

OK, I removed the ad management mod, and it seems better from here...

It seems disabling the ad management mod fixed the issue. As long as I keep the post short enough.

It seems disabling the ad management mod fixed the issue. The preview is working great here. Also when I replied to your PM my browser didn't hang when I sent the message. I wonder if it's a certain version of AMM causing the hangs (you can't run this site without the ads of course).

When I add this red text to this message, preview stops working. Nothing to do with the color but the length of the post.

Aha!

The Apostrophe is hanging it. I am sure it is not being handled somehow...

You seem to be correct. This one previews (with or without the quotations) just fine.

The "other" apostrophe ´ (which is the one you´d place on top of vowels) seems to work fine with preview.

There´s also a possibility that it´s not just the apo. My keyboard is Finnish, so my apo lies just next to enter button:

Ah, nope it´s not, the USA keyboard has the apo in the same place.

I´m having no troubles whatsoever previewing this post.

Yeah, I spent a few hours yesterday trying to sort out what could be causing it. The guys at the simplemachines forum are stumped, too.

The apostrophe is a special character that's used to do a few things in SQL, and in PHP. But it shouldn't cause a problem, in a text field.

Ok, it seems to be fixed. I had the hosting company move my account to a new server, it appears everything is ok. Let's see.

Tryin' to test.

Seems to work. (My safari is now also 6.1.4, updated my system two days ago).

''' :)

Thanks for finding the time to address it.

No problem, it was a challenge. The guy at my hosting company was totally stumped.Somewhere, something got goofed up, but we never did figure it out. We just moved to a new server on a hunch.
