Has anyone else been experiencing a particularly annoying problem that has cropped up only recently since they started making changes to the site? Moving from page to page is frankly onerous. Why does a blank two-tone green screen appear with such monotonous regularity and for minutes on end when I click to move to a different page? That endlessly spinning circular disc is a wind-up and reminds me of the bad old days of dial-up. It can't be at my end as I have a fully functioning 20Mb Virgin Media connection. :-(

Having some problems

Mine seems to be when one advert appears

If I try to change boards when the car advert appears then I just get the GR header and advert running but the rest of the page is just black.

Yes pages slow to load when the "webuyanycar" advert is running

If that is the case, then make sure that you have AdBlock and Block Pop-Ups turned on

I have no problems with ads.

My Block Pop-Ups is in Tools --- Internet Options --- Privacy

AdBlock is in AVG

Roger ................. this board is really for Suggestions to GR on ways to improve the site, or boards to be set up.

They cannot change problems that are due to your server. If you think that it is GR's fault, then you should contact support
