Just wondering if people are still having this issue. It's become bad for me again when connecting through my mobile hotspot. Grogheads is the only site that has this issue for me some I'm suspecting either forum software or a server issue.
That said, I'm not complaining or demanding justice or anything. It sucks for me but if it's just me I can live with that.  :buck2:

If I'm out of the house and I want to check out GH on my phone (it's an iPhone ....one of the older models ) I've  had some issues with the site , for instance it sometimes won't let me post ....takes forever ! And it wouldn't let me listen to more than 10 minutes of the grog cast :(  BUT since I've updated this time , I've had no problems , I can listen to the grogcast now through my phone when I'm driving for instance  8)  and I've had no problems with the site being slow  :)

I don't know why this particular update has fixed those issues , because before when I've updated it didn't seem to make a difference !  If I get problems again , I'll post about it , but so far , so good  O0

Thanks, Emeraldlis. I usually use my iPhone to connect to the internet with a laptop I have during the day. Grogheads is the only site that I have trouble with.
But you have given me an idea! I need to try visiting the site just with the iPhone to see if that has any problems.

Since I switched to and Android phone a month ago, I have trouble with Gorgheads loading there.  I also got a hotspot device that I use with my laptop and it also has issues with Grogheads.  Both the phone and the hotspot are on Verizon. Grogheads is the only site I have any issues with on both devices.  Using my home computer with my DSL I have no problems.

Is it the entire site, or just the forums?

Do you have the Tapatalk app installed?

I'm not sure that listening to a grogcast whilst driving is wise. Strapped into a chair, yes. Driving..........risky.

Well Bob , it can be rather distracting at times listening in the car .....concentrating to much on what's being said , rather than the road !! :crazy2: but I do have to drive long distances at times during the week , so it's perfect for listening to in the car , it's just like having the radio on really  :)

bbmike I hope that worked out for you listening to the phone directly ,rather than hooking it up to your laptop  :)  I've also just recently discovered that if I buy an "AUX "cable , I can hook my phone up to my car radio and have it play through the car speakers . So I'm gonna give that a try , hopefully the sound will be louder as well :) I'm sure most of you guys know that already and I'm just as usual playing catch up !! :D

Forums have been very slow loading in the past 24 hours. I've been mostly at home on a wired connection when viewing. Other sites have been fine, no lag.

Front end site is pokey too, but not as noticeable as the forums.
