Interesting (if a little sad, but early days I know) - the new site seems very sensitive to a fully loaded local inet, got a few other machines doing inet stuff here now, old futures.io (formerly BMT) still DNS/page loads in 2-3 secs, new one is still taking 12-15secs.

Like so:


Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



And like I said, the Beta site shows two copies of the image in-thread not just the one that shows on old futures.io (formerly BMT).

Fwiw (unless) you're doing some heavy maintenance the Beta site has just gone into 10-15s page load limbo, not seen that before.

I will try to fix the two images in post bodies as part of "Critical #1", but the sad truth is I may not be able to.

Regarding the "Sorry, we couldn't" on your first tab, what is the URL you are trying to view? Your screenshot is of the last tab (far right) not the first tab (far left) best I can tell.

For speed, no there is no activity -- should be no change in performance. Anyone else having a problem?

The url for the tab is just that generated by the Beta site to show just the image that is in the thread that is referenced by the main right hand tab thread.

I didn't think it was an on-Beta site speed issue, but there is a big difference between old v new site performance when my local net is loaded (kids watching videos, etc). Old futures.io (formerly BMT) doesn't flinch, new one gets well bored.

Are you saying you don't get the lightbox when clicking on the image?

What is the URL for the first tab that is giving the error?

I can't duplicate any of this. Do you have Chrome? I am wondering if the problem is something weird with FF.

All Chrome tonight, none of this was happening on the previous Beta conversion.

Pretty sure I 'report'ed the post on the Beta site, I try to do that whenever I find a dodgy post/thread.

I can find nothing odd about this post

https://beta.bigmiketrading.com/topic/30562-code-example-for-displaying-unrealiz...ndComment&comment=500989

Except that the image is duplicated as previously mentioned.

Can anyone else understand the problem @ratfink is describing? I'm afraid I just don't understand.

@ratfink what is the URL for the first left tab that says "sorry..."

That is the post, the first half the problem is the image duplication as you say, that now appears to be applicable to many posts now, it was not noticeable to me in the previous conversion.

The second half of the problem is that it now just gives a 'Sorry we can't find that' as the Tab title text, and the page was hanging up, I understand if you can't reproduce it but it does here and I definitely didn't see that before.

I can't help much more here tonight as I can say with 100% certainty that the new site is unusable for me when my local inet is loaded up, whereas old futures.io (formerly BMT) is still running fine. I have no doubt this is a side effect of whatever new technologies they are using to build it, progress is not always progress..

Cheers

The bad news is you have an intermittent bug. Solid reproducible hangup this afternoon, not any more, just shows the image ok and tab text fine, so I can understand why you don't get it. The worst sort of buglet, they do pass in time.

I'm wondering if this might also be why @madLyfe was having some apparently local download issues the other night?

I suggest you get a few others to focus on this because when local inet is loaded the apparent difference in usabilty between old and new sites is huge. There's probably a different ack protocol response level needed somewhere.

And to confirm - it is just the new Beta site, I'm not having trouble with any other inet sites, including links ref'd off the new site (e.g. NinjaTrader.com, etc).
