I doubt that you will get a reply until at least Monday when the site Admins come back after the weekend.

First off dump all your cookies and then retry it. Also it will help them out if you list what you are on such as a computer/laptop or a phone when you are having problems also the operating system and browser if on a computer.

Another member had the same type of problem and he switched browsers and then everything was fine.

I have no problems on FireFox or IE but then I very seldom use IE anymore.

I doubt the problem is with the site, but with either your internet connection or the browser you're using.

You might try another browser.

Hey there,

Please list your Device / Browser and OS so that we can investigate the issue.

Please ensure you clear your browsers cache and cookies as well.

Is your browser hanging on anything in particular? (Waiting for/Connecting to ..... ) alerts in the bottom left corner?

If you are using IE, please add the site to compatibility view.

thanks,
- JB

Have you tried a different browser besides IE?

Such as Firefox or Chrome?

Let us know if this pops back up for you in chrome.

Can any one else confirm that this is an issue for them as well?
Please Provide the browser that you are using.

I use firefox on a laptop and feel just like buzzleo.
This seemed to happen right around the same time (we) all had to
reset our passwords because you guys got hacked into.
I can't pinpoint the specific (lags) or just why they happen.
I guess if I clicked to go to another thread I would find the (lags).
Seems like the site is to busy loading advertising before it loads the thread.
I just can't see loading & using another browser JUST for THIS site.
It didn't do it a few months ago and NO OTHER site's I go to seem to
be having this type of issue.
I regularly hear "clear your browsers cache and cookies" as a suggestion when people
are having problems on a site. I RARELY hear "doing that solved the problem".
Also, I am no computer expert but doesn't Clearing cache & cookies cause other
sites to load slower? I thought that was a big part of why sites save cookies onto your machine.
So when you revisit the site there is certain information it doesn't have to reload?
I don't know exactly what speed connection I have but it's no different than a few months
back before the hack and I am on the same machine with the same Ram, Memory and other
physical features. And I HAVE cleared the cache & cookies. Still thedieselstop.com is a turtle!

Yes, I've been having fits with the site for about a week or more now. I just tried to go from the 7.3 IDI section to the 6.9 IDI section and all I get is a continually spinning icon and a blank page. Then when I minimize the TDS page and go to a completely different web address or forum the minimized TDS page causes the new forum or web address not to load or causes it go into a "tizzy fit" in one way or another. If I eliminate TDS still trying to load in the background, everything else is back to normal. I have IE and have absolutely no trouble with any other forum, just the TDS forum. Also, I'm a fast typer, and many times as I'm typing a reply (like here) I have to wait due to the fact it will take may 6 or more seconds for each letter of each word to appear in the reply box, there again, that's only on the Diesel Stop site. Any advice would be appreciated.

Windows 10, Edge browser...What a PITA to use this site anymore. Like LMJD, type fast and it doesn't get all the keystrokes. FINE EVERYWHERE ELSE.

I had so many problems with the MS browsers that I switched over to Firefox There are problems with Firefox also but a lot fewer of them from what I have seen.

I haven't had any problems this AM 4/28

Ever once in a while I have problems with IE. Usually if I go Tools....internet options.....advanced.....Then press the reset button.

Oh, over the years the forum has slowed down a lot probably due to the length of time it takes all the advs to load. I guess it is just something that has to be. One big change is the edit function. When I try to edit it shows a blank box so I can't edit.....just repost. And of course the last thing is uploading pixs always come out as small thumbnails that are so small that you can't see detail. So I now pdf my pixs. Still a great forum but not what it used to be.

If you want a picture that fills the whole screen you have to host the photo on a site and then use the picture icon and insert the pictures url. The size of the thumbnail depends on the size of your picture on your computer or phone. It really has nothing to do with the site.

On the edit box I have never had any problems with it showing up. I do believe that they have changed the time that is it available to the OP to edit his response.

The speed quite possibly is the adds, you can either get a add blocker that might help or actually send the site owners some money to eliminate them. This happened even back when Jason owned the site

The edit box shows up most of the time except it is blank with nothing to edit. Could be the browser or operating system, I just work around it. I just repost now.

Redtop, I have the same problem with the edit box. In my case, at the bottom of the new blank box there's ANOTHER "edit" icon I can click on then that second box shows my post and allows me to edit it like the first box should do. Maybe yours does the same? Another odd deal that I've only seen here.
