Default talk of the villages website too slow

too many ads, etc slow down this website making it somewhat annoying to use, don't get me wrong, its useful but hard to have to wait so long for it to display the screens you want......my device is on a 10 mb line.

I believe this would be an issue with your device or browser, not TOTV web site.

OP has probably picked up some malicious malware.

slow for me too sometimes. I think it the recurring video add. I notice when I stops repeating itself the site speeds up. But, I'm no Geek squad and don't know how to tell what's doing it?

no problem for me
Do you know anyone with a laptop that can come over and be on your network and see if they have the same problems?
You are trying to find out if your network is slow or your laptop is slow.
Let me know and I will try to help you.

I have 40 download speed and reading new posts or classifieds takes exceptionally long.

Brighthouse now has 100+MB, no issues here. Your computer processor could also be slowing you down, just because it comes in at 10MB doesn't mean everything inside your computer can handle it.

Hmmm. I never notice ToTV being slow. We have a reasonable internet connection speed...25 Mbps download...but not business class. It even runs well on my iDevices. And I do visit some slow sites on occasion. Not sure what the problem might be.

Knowing it's not your computer or OS does not leave the site as the only possible issue. Could it be the speed or possibly another problem with your connection?

I find TOTV very slow, also. And why do we have to wait 30 seconds when changing topics? Very often, after reading or making a post, when I want to go back and pick up the new posts where I left off, I have to sign in again. This can happen to me a dozen or so times when reading a day's threads.

Another annoying thing is when I go to enter a post I've made, I often get this message: "You do not have permission to perform this action. Please refresh the page and login before trying again."

Very frustrating!

Hmmm. Might want to check some settings. I never have to log in as long as I keep the appropriate box checked.

Speeds at home are just OK - not good but tolerable. I'm in hotels most of this month, including now and the speeds are awful.

If you're using Chrome, do you have AdBlock enabled?

It's not TOTV. It's how you are accessing it and the device you are using. When I use Lap top....no problem at all. When I use I Pad, I have to use Chrome. If I use Internet explorer, it's all over the place and unable to navigate.

I will admit that TOTV is the only web site where these issues are present.
