Pages aren't loading
I'm posting this for a friend on here; FlamesBlader, as he cant reach the site bug area because of this problem. (He's accessing ggFTW from the Netherlands if this helps at all)


Since the recent update, some pages on the site haven't been loading. Member pages and some threads randomly stop working.

It's kinda on/off so I can get to things sometimes and other times it will take a long time to get anywhere.

Last time we made a change with our CDN provider some members had this problem. We recently parallelized the CDN (about 6 hours after the new site deployed) so this could be causing the issue.

I can think of nothing on the site side that would be causing this; tbh this is really just a modified version of the old ggFTW theme. If it keeps happening after a day or two then we need to look at it.

In the interim, could you please get his browser, browser version, operating system, and line speed info? Please PM those to me. Thanks.

Okay, I've given the message to him. He has said that if he can access PM he will try sending the info himself, if not I'll be sure to do it for him.

Resolved. Just in case anyone else has this issue, please try this resolution first:

On Windows, issue the following command as an administrator:


C:\> ipconfig /flushdns
On Mac OS, issue this command:


bash-2.05a$ dscacheutil -flushcache
This command flushes your local cache of DNS (the system that resolves to an IP address that your computer can use). To speed up page loads, your computer caches this information (stores a temporary copy -- fast) so it doesn't have to connect to the internet every time and retrieve the information (slow). This particular issue was caused by a stale (out-of-date) DNS cache.
