    B&N WEBSITE

      Ok so why is it so hard to move around on this forum using my HD+?Scrolling up and down threads is very difficult. The response is really bad. I would think its my touch screen but this is the only website that has the problem. Does anyone else have response problems here?

          I don't use the forums via my HD+ or any of my Nooks. However, I can tell you what problems I have using the PC:

           

          At least 15% of the time the site is unavailable.

          10% of the time when it's unavailable one of the pages won't open or will be in a permanent 'loading' state.

           

          There is sometimes slowness. Both in posting and in loading.

           

          That suggests to me that the servers are either overloaded or slow.

           

          On an HD+ that might be affecting things.

           

          *****

          The other possibility is that the forum software is not optimized for mobile devices.

              Strangely, my HD+ is much faster on the forums than my desktop running an old copy of Firefox.

               

              On the desktop, having a forum page open slows Firefox completely -- I even have to hold the mouse on the menu bar for five to ten seconds before it opens, and links take forever to highlight as active.

               

              On the HD+, the main problem is that the link highlights don't match the active link unless the page (including animated advert) has fully loaded. Many times if I tap a link before the blue line has gone away, the link above it is what opens.

               

              I've not examined the source HTML but I suspect the whole site is done in Javascript and is reading mouse/touch coordinates to compute nearest link. If the page is still loading the blue status line shifts the page coordinates, or the text is shown but the table of links hasn't loaded into the script.

               

              Non sequitur: A few days ago the advert I kept having to wait for was pushing Dish Network's Hopper -- advertising that it could skip over adverts!
