I am going to reactivate the 'latest posts' extension. I have a feeling it may have a negative impact on site performance but if you can all let me know it would help :)

Thanks

Recent topics seem to be working ok here. I reduced the number of pages it displays and It should be showing the latest 15 topics? Actually I set it to 5 but for some reason, it only shows that when not logged in.

Has anyone noticed an impact on site speed?

Nothing has changed. The response time is about 1.5s and looks very stable.

Thanks for the info dmitrins :)

Still working fine here too. Which is very good news because having the latest posts there in front of you when you enter the forum is easier for people than looking in the Quick Links in the navbar. I know it is easy to click a link in the menu but there are a lot of people who are new to forums and won't know where to look.

I have noticed the forum is sometimes slow today? Seem to have gone back to there often being a delay when replying to posts. Can take 20-30 seconds between hitting 'submit' and the action taking place. Anyone else noticed this?

Mostly I notice a little lag when I'm trying to preview or send a PM. (But not an entire 20 seconds).
I've gotten into the habit of copying any text before I reply anywhere.
Not because it times out on here but because of bad moments when it did in OTHER places after a long lag .. especially transferring script from my story-writing app to the cloud.
If you use an abundance of words (like me, when I write) .. it is an agonizing palm-slap to the head moment. Otherwise I haven't really noticed anything.

Thanks, Shelly

Must be just me then. Probably down to local ISP connection.
