I am still unable to access forums most of the time

Sometimes I can get onto the forums and get to anything I want but most of the time I am limited to stuff in the left hand column (recent posts). I sometimes can get onto one forum with persistent clicking but then cannot get onto another or back to the first.
 
 I am on Virgin broadband and speed tests show me as close to 10mbs.  I have tried on my desktop which is a Dell i7 and on three laptops and a tablet and get the same results. I wonder if anyone else is perhaps having the same or similar problems?
 
Again If I don't reply to any postings it is more likely that I can't reply rather than not bothering  wink

It's still a little sluggish - but seems to work pretty reliably for me on Safari.

I don't know what the problem your having is Bob, it seems specific to your connection. Maybe there is a misconfiguration in your router?

Re: I am still unable to access forums most of the time
It has drastically improved recently but could you confirm if the following points are me or is that how it works now.
 
First this thread is showing twice and on opening the second one does not get rid of the new posting star.
 
When there are new postings on a forum I can only reliably open it by clicking on the "new posts" box and otherwise is quite hard to open.
 
Within the forums the same applies. If a thread has new posts it will open in the "new posts" box
 
Any forum or thread without new posts is quite hard to open (or am I clicking in the wrong place?)
 
The only way to stop a forum showing new posts is to open every thread that has new posts.
 
These are not complaints just queries as if this is normal then I will have to just get used to it. smiley

Re: I am still unable to access forums most of the time
I’d like to know why there is two threads of “I am still unable to access forums most of the time”.  One of which remains as “new” and never goes away after reading the recent posts.  http://www.dvforums.com/pressflow/forums/i-am-still-unable-access-forums-most-time#comment-1396902

Just wondering

Perhaps your not actually clicking the links Bob?
 
you have to click on the Purple TEXT - when you mouse over the actual clickable part of the text your pointer should change to a hand or something.

Yes I had become sloppy with my clickingwink
 
When I was having real trouble with the forums I had got into the habit of clicking all over the place and many times, sometimes opening forums and threads from unlikely places and after multiple clicks. Now that it is better I must be more discerning with the mouse blush
