I didn't realise Beex was particularly slow. Maybe I'm just too laid back and casual, like.

It wasn't, but faster is better.

It should work for everyone by now.

I think I'm going to power it up for www. as well, which will work as it'll be sitting on the same IP.

If it does break though, have you both got a way of getting a message to me?

Are you going to tell us what you did? I'm curious in general, but even more so after that hint that you shouldn't tell us. I can't imagine what kind of website optimisation could be a dirty secret... ;)

My experience so far is that the first initial connection to load the site is noticeably slower, but every subsequent pageload is quite a bit faster.

I've made it a better too, so now you can just hit the button and it'll insert the tag at the caret and then move the caret to the middle of the two tags so you can just keep typing.

Also it's a bit more efficient. You'll never notice unless you look at the code but it was bugging me.

Also I added a PM button to the posts, because it's not like there isn't room.

I'm going to force https so the site can use http/2. If that causes problems for anyone then let me know.

Works, although Zaphod's sig loads over http and triggers a mixed content warning. Guess you can't do much about that though.

lol now my avatar is doing the same thing, weird how that didn't show up in the network requests panel.

//edit: fixed, and obviously it wouldn't have shown up before I posted because my avatar wasn't on the page.

Times are a-changing, friends. Well, actually, times a-changed quite a while ago.

When Beex started in 2008 Duffy was topping the charts and it wasn't until four months later that Apple decided to release an iPhone that actually had a 3G connection, and many members were still connecting via dialup. Therefore it made sense for Beex to keep image and page sizes down.

It's not 2008 any more (sorry if that is a shock to some of you) and Beex has a lot of pages (roughly 33,000 of them) containg 30 posts each. I'd like to experiment with upping that to 100 posts each.

It doesn't make much difference to the page size (unless there are a lot of images) because a good chunk of that is taken up by the JavaScript code to make the page go (especially in the mobile skin), so things should still load quickly.

WHAT SAY YOU, CITIZENS OF BEEXLAND?

That's basically in place for fun now. We can make it a 30 page limit instead?
