SLOOOOOW Site :(


Hi,

I have a template monster affiliate site and it is one of their off the peg jobbies with some slight modification.

The problem with the home page is that it takes forever to download. I have looked at the code but can not see what is holding the load of the page up. It is really frustating because no one would stick around long enough for it to load

Can one of you programming experts spot the bit of rogue code that is dragging this down. I would love to remove it if only I could find it

Thanks for listening anyway.

Simon

Tested in IE 5.5, 5.01, and 3, all loaded in around 2.5 seconds.

Tested in NS 6.0, loaded in about 4.5 seconds, (note it is also not displayed right.)

Tested in Opera 7.23, loaded in about 2.5~ seconds.

These are the only working browsers I have on this machine.

There must be something wrong with my browser because it just took about 30 seconds for me and I too am on broadband

Was that 3 minutes or 3 seconds?

I would not be suprised at 3 minutes but it does seem excessive. The most I have waited is about 1 minute. It seems to be intermittant. Yesterday...it was loading fast...today it is like a slug again.
