All issues should now be a thing of the past.

If not, then I give up. I have doen absolutely everything I can do. There are no more options.

If there are any more issues do a ctrl+F5 before reporting them.

additionally, due to the upgrade, some elements are missing but I will be working on them a little at a time....never fear.

"<td class="alt1" id="td_title_2663" title="Hi, I hope that this is Ok to post this in here? Just to quick message to let you know that if you are a golfer who also owns a Pocket PC and a GPS receiver (Bluetooth, CF"


they seem to appear at random and dont affect anything...and it's sometimes amusing - just letting you know...

I'm doing some sniffing around, and found this thread:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=20920

You mentioned elsewhere about your server admin doing something with the gzip. In that thread I found, it was stated that you can comment out using gzip, or you can enable us users to turn off gzip in the our control panels. If that's possible, letting us users turn it off in our control panels, it could be a good test.

Okay, this is starting to make some sense for me. Gzip is a module that allows the server to zip up a file, then IE and Firefox have the ability to unzip the file. The file compression helps to reduce the amount of bandwidth being used, but there could be problems. Somewhere in the transaction, the file gets compressed and delivered, and needed information is lost, that's why we see code getting displayed, and parts of the code disappearing. Maybe the gzip on the server isn't zipping properly, or everyone's browsers, those of us who have troubles, aren't unzipping it properly.

I'm currently performing my own test, by hacking the Firefox about:config file. There's a line in there which I think can be changed to turn off Firefox requesting and accepting gzipped files:

Preference Name/ Status/ Type/ Value
network.http.accept-encoding/ default/ string/ gzip, deflate

is the default status. I've blanked out the value.

So far, no problems loading this site.

Yes, later this morning I'm having alot of difficulties. This morning it was ok (post cookie clearing and temp internet files deletion).

But as of late, I get hung pages where it won't load without 5 or 6 refreshes. In either FF or IE. And I re-installed FF, just to make sure I had the most recent and updated versions...
