Posting for traffic- am I the o my person that has had difficulty getting on and reading mumsnet this last few days? It won't load properly and freezes. I've hardly read anything since Thursday..... So annoying!

Mine has been okay for lurking...

No problems here

There's a thread in Site Stuff about it, lots of people been having issues (seems a bit better this morning for me?).

rainbowstardrops Sun 05-Mar-17 10:00:31

I've had problems too. I'd assumed it was my phone because it's on it's last legs but maybe not?

Allthewaves Sun 05-Mar-17 10:00:37

yes, same happening here

isupposeitsverynice Sun 05-Mar-17 10:00:58

not just you, I am having trouble too - there's been quite a few threads started in site stuff about it

It has been awful the last week or so, mainly if you're using Safari. There's a big thread about it in site stuff. I downloaded the adblocker app yesterday and it's solved the issue for me.

Yeah, there seem to be issues with iPad and iPhone. Lots of people complaining about it on the other thread

Welshrainbow Sun 05-Mar-17 10:02:19

Same for me for last week or so.

womanwithoutasong Sun 05-Mar-17 10:02:31

Yes, same here. Im using iPhone6 and iPad2. It's been fine on my PC though.

It just sort of freezes while the bottom half of the page remains blank.

Gave up on the ipad and works fine on the mac.

The main thread is here:

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/2860644-SLOW-Its-so-fucking-slow-now-I-cant-even-get-long-threads-to-load-any-more?

But the TLDR version of that is:
- all Apple devices seem to be struggling
- this has been going on for several days
- rare updates from MNHQ, 36 hour intervals, so no idea what's going on
- adblocking seems to be the solution (AdBlock Plus being the most frequently recommended app)

(there's about half a dozen other threads in site issues saying roughly the same thing)

Just assumed it was me.

Bluntness100 Sun 05-Mar-17 10:07:02

I downloaded ad blocker and it's been fine ever since.

MissDemelzaCarne Sun 05-Mar-17 10:08:41

Please post on this thread www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/2860644-SLOW-Its-so-fucking-slow-now-I-cant-even-get-long-threads-to-load-any-more

too, if you can. hmm

Hoping for some updates from MNHQ.

hopefulmumofone Sun 05-Mar-17 10:10:55

Another vote for Ad blocker, it worked for me. I thought it was my iPad and was going to buy another one today - so happy I read this first!

Glossolalia Sun 05-Mar-17 10:12:23

I updated the software on my iPhone and the issue stopped for me.

thenorthernluce Sun 05-Mar-17 10:19:59

I'm having difficulties, too, but only on iPhone.

Writerwannabe83 Sun 05-Mar-17 10:22:03

I'm on an iPhone and it's been a nightmare for a week. Long threads won't load, screen freezing, not responding to the 'Threads I'm on' button and various other annoying things.

I thought I had problems with my internet connection but I guess not.

U2HasTheEdge Sun 05-Mar-17 10:26:01

Same here. The pages keep bouncing about when trying to get my my last booked mark page and it keeps telling me the page needs force reloading.

spacefrog35 Sun 05-Mar-17 10:29:43

As said above- Adblock plus solved the problem for me.

U2HasTheEdge Sun 05-Mar-17 10:31:07

I completely forgot to install Adblock plus on my new laptop.

Just installed it.

underneaththeash Sun 05-Mar-17 10:40:53

We had problems on all our apple devices and I too loaded ad block. Not having irritating ads too is a bonus!

Squills Sun 05-Mar-17 10:59:10

I had same problem on my iPad but all was fine on my iMac. I downloaded ad blocker and all is ok now.
