I've found the new layout really difficult to use because the pages are so slow to scroll.  If I drag the scroll bar, nothing happens and then suddenly the page jerks and I have to figure out how far it has jerked.  Using Page Up and Down is very slow and boring too.  If there is a lengthy report like MiniToolBox, it's so tedious I don't even bother to look.  I had no issues with the old layout nor other sites.  I don't have any data from the old pages but if I save the "New Topic" page that I am currently writing into, the html is 70kB and the associated files are 901kB.

The site isn't slow for me... Maybe it's your internet's speed or CPU's speed which is the problem.

I am not seeing a problem either.  Can you please post an url to a  topic where you are seeing this issue.

I quote myself, "I had no issues with the old layout nor other sites".  That means any other web page in the last ten years, even if they were slow to load due to size.  My worst page to date is my TV listings web page which have about 1.3MB of html, 350kB of files and requires 52 "page downs" to get to the bottom.  No problem once loaded, scrolls fine.

 

This page (.....bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/484574/new-layout/) is not very long but still jerks - the html is 97kB, the 36 associated files are 1.28MB

I realize that forums may need a fair bit of code but this seems somewhat excessive.  It may be cached so that it does not need to be downloaded every page but the PC/browser is still handling a lot of kB.  I suspect the problem is in the code rather than the amount of it.

Yes, new version. I also made some tweaks yesterday to increase speed. Seems to have helped a little bit.

The "lag" between forum jumping seems to be better now -

 

Not sure if this will show in the post, but there seems to be a line missing when you Quote someone ?

The top line is blank, but it may not show in the post, but it shows in "Post Preview" -

 

No big drama,  just takes a bit of getting the hang of the new display layout.

 

EDIT - The "missing line" is not in the final post - So ignore that one -

I'm not sure if I see improvement or not.  For now I've zoomed out twice (very small text) so that it is jerking within what I can see and I know where it jerked to.  When I browse large web pages elsewhere I see some jerking but the scrolling keeps up reasonably with the scroll bar movement.

For the jerking are you seeing this in other browsers? What browser are you currently using?

I'm using Firefox. In its Safe Mode it is no better.  Chrome is slightly better.  The worst problem is logs which are usually very long.  Normal threads have a blue bar at the top of each post so it's easier to keep track of them as they jerk.  I think it is better than it was, but I'm probably avoiding threads with logs!

Give me a link to a topic that is causing this jerking.
