Unresponsive script continual message and site down last night (Mon)

Hey Catch and co tongue

Just to say i have been getting a message saying "Unresponsive Script" -( do i want it to go on scrolling down and wait or stop??) pretty much every post tonight and there HAS been a short wait before i have been able to read a thread or post thereon. I take it this is the fairly common "slow to load" problem tho the computer hasn't called it that before? And also could this be all or part of the reason why the site was down last night - Mon - from about 0130 am on?

Love

LW X

PS Thought i would liven up this thread by giving you a muso visual - this is the only album title i can think of that features the word "script" .Plus tech probs can make me quite tearful. tongue

Monday night I think I caught in the morning, and was something else.

i had it a couple of times around when the server was changed but didn't recur, so i figured it was to do with that ... maybe not though

Yeah i get this pretty much every long thread i read. I figured it was because of my 8 year old laptop and 256 ram.

Its basically any heavy threads, espesh if they have pix on them etc. Option to continue loading script or stop. If you stop it it doesnt load the corners.

Was waiting to see if anyone else was getting it before i mentioned it cos i put it down to having a crap machine.

Will pay more attention next time it happens and see what other info.

Got it on page2 of the tat thread - basically it takes ages loading that page + pix + corners and so gets stuck. If you hit continue it will take some more time and load up fine. If you hit no it will load half of the corners and the pix and stop..

ok it's a timeout thing then.

another reason to change how we do corners I guess, that might fix it.

I'm getting the same message for last few days, quite regularly.

I'm getting the message and I'm pretty sure its not a timeout thing as I have a fast connection and it happens within a second of starting to load the thread

How is the spec on your computer though? Old/slow?

Its a 3 or 4 year old laptop so old but not unreasonably so. The error is coming and going which would suggest the problem is not the age of the computer. Its a Mac under 10.4.9 using Firefox 2

OK anyone getting the message it'd be great if you could do two things:

1. post a link to the thread

2. take a note of exactly what the message says.

Then we can try to narrow down.

Catch its a browser message, here it is:
Either option my browser will lock up for 15secs. Im pretty sure its to do with corners.

Its fine on faster computers for me.

The same thing with me - when I click on continue it works fine, but slower...

the sexy rounded corners on forum posts. they use javascript (hence the "unresponsive script" error), there's another way of doing them which seems better for a variety of reasons which i think we're going to use, which should hopefully fix this

I'll try to work on the corners tonight.

Will probably switch existing ones off in an hour or less, if you do or don't get the error message after the corners stop being round, please post here.

alright, round corners off. if the error doesn't show up we'll know it's that.

fuck these new corners are easier than old ones.

rkn go to admin/settings/rounded_corners

it's going to be like a five minute job!

I've got the same as JAck, I'm using firefox though, I can see on the left side of explore two white spots which are rounded corners and the drop-downs can't be clicked on.
Mind you it's not as if anyone was going to read the blog entry I'm writing grin

Me reporting this appears to have been helpful - thats good. cool

Yeah Rkn that is the message I got. - the Unresponsive Script thing. I agree that continuing is quicker than stopping (irony!! ) - will see if things have changed from my pov when i get back later..

Actually no its more fucked. Its still doing corners after loading the page.

Also on the anarcho tattoo thread i got the message box twice, hit continue both times and after the second time it just gave up loading the thread after first post.

Is it a really weight script? Or is it that it just has to do it so many times?

This thread has got long so its taking ages to load for me now, well not load - i can see its loaded - it just locks up as it renders the page.

Barkanine bans thread gives me the error message, but works if i hit continue.

I think it's the number of times - script is way, way lighter - it's only 50 lines of js maximum.

super fast for me now, and no after-render corner jumping either.

Still bad for me, but i dont think my experience should be the gauge, this computer is 256 800mhz so its unrealistic to base the site on that.

hmm. same issue on ff/ie/opera?

If others could post up if they get the error that'd be great.

Ideally please post the following:

operating system
processor
ram
browser (and version).
which thread(s) you get the error on with links.

I'm going to kill nifty from theme folder, this way isn't make it worse at least.
