Now I'm using my other computer with Windows 10 and Firefox and the above problem is still there. I'd guess a huge percentage of PW members use the same browser and version of Windows.


Update: The most recent problem(directly above)seems to have been fixed now. Thanks!

The challenge with this type of issue is that it could simply be a conflict with an add on in your browser, difficult to diagnose from here.
Do you get any type of error messages?
Is there any warning text down in the lower left of the browser window?

The time shown for when my post was sent - - is way off. I just posted (about 9am west coast time) and it shows as 3pm... as a matter of fact, look at this post right here: it shows as 4:19pm, but I'm posting at 9:20am, west coast time.

The time was a problem for a while, but it seems to be corrected now once you set it correctly in your Preferences.

One thing that definitely no longer works in the New Forums are new or old MediaTag links to a video/audio recording contained within a YouTube playlist. The problem exists whether or not I attempt to create a new MediaTag link to a single piece recording (or movement) within a YouTube playlist, or for ones that I had posted in the past - which now look like "dead" black screens. Here is an example:

The following hyperlinks to any given individual YouTube video/audio recording work just fine, either as:

1. a listed hyperlink to the web address:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_T4-jqrcIg

or 2. through PianoWorld's "Insert Link" option:
Jason Solomonides - Chopin: Etude Op.25, No.1, "Aeolian Harp" - Mason & Hamlin BB

or 3. via PianoWorld's "Insert MediaTag" YouTube link option:


HOWEVER, if the hyperlink attempts to link to this SAME individual YouTube recording NOW contained within a YouTube PLAYLIST, this only works as:

1. a listed hyperlink to the web address:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_T4-jqrcIg&index=4&list=PLkP65I5BsNirTcv-nAHm4BXXsCbB_EbAJ

or 2. through PianoWorld's "Insert Link" option:
Jason Solomonides - Chopin: Etude Op.25, No.1, "Aeolian Harp" - Mason & Hamlin BB

but NOT 3. PianoWorld's "Insert MediaTag" YouTube link option - which now produces a "dead" black screen.


As a result, many of the sample recordings I had provided in past PianoWorld postings also no longer work.

Two problems:

1. Mark all as read doesn't work. Instead, just exit the browser and come back. Now all threads are read!

2. Slow.

OK. Here is a test I performed that provides some data.

I co-ordinated with my son (I was logged in, he was not.) who lives in a different region and uses a different ISP. Internet speeds were 1Gbp/s for him and 200Mb/s for me. I was using Safari and he was using Chrome.

We both clicked on the same page at the same time on PW and waited until it loaded some 30 seconds later. It loaded essentially instantaneously on both our computers at precisely the same time. We then clicked on a different page. I clicked first and he clicked precisely 10 seconds later. After a delay of 15 seconds or so, the page loaded essentially instantaneously on both our computers at precisely the same time.

The above experiment eliminates browser, computer type, connection speed, ISP and queue position as possible sources of this particular problem.

It appears that one of the backend servers is causing mysql or php to actually freeze up. Once the pause is over, everything returns to normal.

There are many reasons for this to occur. Here are a few:

They could try increasing the php.ini memory_limit.
Something is eating up memory, though this should cause a crash, not a pause.
It is possible some java service in the background is constantly doing garbage collection.

Hope they fix this soon.

edit: I take no credit for this knowledge. smirk

Hi Wouter,
We aren't ready to set up the forums or recital pages for https: yet, I first have to go back in and set EVERY image to point to https, a task that will take some time.
The primary Piano World site (not the forums or recitals) should work ok as I tried to assign everything with the new version to be secure.

I am curious about the spam message though, we are not on any spam lists that I know of.
Or are you saying our site claims your IP is on our list? That's possible if it's looking at a general IP (used to happen to people with AOL). Can you get me the exact IP?

Thanks,
Best,
Frank B. / Piano World


Frank, sorry for the slow response.

This is a message coming from the pianoworld website.

So yes, your site claims that the IP tor is using is on a spam list.
I can't give you an exact IP, this is exactly a main feature for Tor browser that tries to anonymize your browsing activities. And that's also why I would like to have https working for the forums. Indeed you may see quite some activity from tor IP addresses, as these addresses are shared by many tor users.

For the last two days, I have had problems logging in to Piano World. Yes, I am in now.

Either the first or the second log-in screen "hangs." When it's the second log in screen that asks for member name and password, after three or four minutes of "waiting for forum.pianoworld.com..." the log-in times out and I get a message that reads (something like) "Member name/password not found."

What is happening and why?

This happens only with Piano World; any other website I log on to comes up almost immediately.

Regards,


BruceD

It makes no sense to "request a removal" because Tor will change my IP address all the time.

How can I get this working with Tor?

Still the same 10-20 sec freezes happening periodically. I'd say roughly 1 in 10 times I click on a new page within the forum there will be such a delay. Every time I think it's got better, it reverts to the same behaviour. It's got to the point where I spend less time on PW because the waiting is frustrating. Whatever is being addressed to improve it temporarily is not fixing it permanently.

Any time you find a delay in accessing a page, please check to see if your browser is indicating what is causing the load issue.
Whenever I run into something like this I see a message in the very bottom left of my screen telling me what it is trying to load that is not going through.

Having this information would be a big help in tracking down what it is.

Another thing you might try, hit CTRL & F5 to clear the cache or close and open your browser.
Every time you connect to a site (any site) you go through a series of routers on the Internet. Every once in a while I run a trace route (in a dos command prompt tracert pianoworld.) I've seen it go through ten routers all over the country before finally hitting the host computers (which are in Canada). And I've seen it hang up for a long time on one router before being passed off to another.
Any one of the routers along the way can cause a delay, and yes it would take a different path depending upon the site you were trying to connect to.

In the meantime I'm running some tests and looking for ways to improve speed.
One of those tests can be seen here: https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/cJ0MKu/http://forum.pianoworld.com

As you can see by the results, there is no one magic bullet.
Some things I will work on myself, others will require help from our hosting service, and some are beyond my scope.

Frank,

As sent to you in my recent PM the message on the bottom left indicates "waiting for forums.pianoworld" Previously the messages indicated the advertiser service causing the delay but not anymore. I have no delay problems with any of my ten (not pianoworld) forums. I regularly clear my cache and do other computer housekeeping.

EDITED: I wrote too soon about no waiting for advertiser loading to complete. Now I have no completion at all on piano forum after several minutes. Messages are alternating between:

"waiting for bid.contextweb.com..."

and

"track1.aniview.com..."

regards,

Ian

Update:

I have solved the webpage delay problem by stopping everything related to Google analytics. Forum page changes are now instant.

Not a problem per se, but just wondering if we could have a "Like" button on posts. There are many times when I like a post or agree with a post but don't have anything to add to what has already been said. It would be great to have a way of expressing agreement or support for what someone else has already posted.

Why introduce clutter? If your proposal was accepted then others would be asking for a "dislike" button.

This may not be considered as a problem, but I just found it odd why search engine would behave differently.

Whenever I would like to come to Piano World, I just typed "Piano World" in Google search and this site almost came up on top. For some reason recently, a different site, Carlson's Piano World, came as the top result.

I am not against Carlson's, and of course I can always use Bookmark function to save this step. I am an illiterate when it comes to how search engines sort their results. I am just curious about this change.

I don't suppose that this is the correct place to mention this. It is very minor, and I am probably doing something wrong.

I tend to log in to the forum, open the most recent thread and then just click on "previous thread" until I have read all the threads with anything new. Sometimes I am taken to the most recent posting, sometimes I am taken to the very beginning of the thread. Why is this?

BTW I thought it was better when the "previous thread" option was at the bottom of the page, not the top, but this is scarcely an inconvenience.

10 out of 10 for an excellent site!

I'm not sure about the "Previous Thread" button and how it determines where it points to exactly, but you can always use the "Active Threads" button to see all of the most recent posts on the forum.

Also I use Koniro theme and the tweet/like buttons at the bottom above the quick reply are annoyingly off-set, with regards to the "previous thread" button being at the top of the page, I'm sure they could tweak the template and add another link at the bottom if they wanted, should only take a couple lines of code. smile

Thank you for bringing the "Top" link back. Not sure when it came back, but I just noticed it now ;0
