    Default Site not working on phone anymore..?

    I used to visit this site almost daily on my phone. Recently, maybe within the last month, it has looked like a new site design, though when I visit on a computer, like now, it looks normal... But now, whenever I try to access the site on my phone, I can get to the main page no problem - but whenever I click on a sub-forum, it goes to a page the says "Resource Limit Is Reached". This happens just about every time now. What's going on?

    Thanks

    In the past few days, I have accessed the site via a tablet once in a while, without any issues. I normally use a laptop, and as always, there are occasional "Resource Limit Is Reached" messages, but typically when I use the Unread Posts button, and they do not repeat.

    Did anyone else who visits the site via phone notice a lay-out/design change, or excessive "Resource Limit Is Reached" messages? I can't think of a reason why that would happen (nothing has changed on the TC end).

    I get the same message virtually every time when i access by cell phone...you can get around it tho, pretty easily....
    You should get a list of categories, click the search button at the upper right....you will get a menu of options....go down to "any date" click there, from the options you can choose what date/time range....i usually pick "last visit"- this will list all new postings since your last visit....you can then choose whichever you want..

    This will occur when the server is handling higher traffic volumes that expected. It typically means that our resources for CPU and RAM usage have temporarily exceeded the resources assigned to them.

    For instance, right now there are about 926 users online ... 863 of those are 'guests'. A guest can be lurkers and/or search engine bots who constantly scan sites to update their engines.

    We are using some rather outdated software and there very may well not be additional resources available. We have tons of drive storage space, so that is not an issue.

    I'd say that the likely-hood of this getting repaired is next to nil. The next step for us to upgrade to another app, much like was recently done on our sister forum, MIMF.

    I've been seeing exactly this for a few weeks now, but I doubt this is a genuine “resource limit is reached” situation.

    Loading talkclassical.com always succeeds. Clicking a subforum will produce the resource limit message. But reloading the subforum page will always succeed.

    Once a subforum has been loaded successfully. Subsequent visits to the same subforum in the same browser session sometimes succeeds, sometimes fails.

    The funny thing is, I have seen this only with Android Edge. I would say 99% reproducible.

    I have never seen this with Android Firefox or Android Firefox Focus.

    With Windows Edge and Firefox this never happened.

    Therefore, I doubt this is a genuine “resource limit is reached” situation. It is more likely an issue with Android Edge. At least in my case!

    Internet is 'buggin'' all over the place. On my work, in my house, on social network...Something goes on, behind the scene of ''visible''.

    Totally agree there. There are times my wi-fi to tv connection gets goofy, distorted pictures and such.

    I've come to think the problems are somewhere in the vast internet infrastructure and not limited to just our site.

    That said, you realize that our physical server is located in Denmark, as is our hosting company .... there's lots of open space and thousands of miles of cable/fox lines/wireless connections between Denmark and where I live in southern Arizona.

    When first visiting TC, without logging in, my phone defaults to the mobile version of the site, which does look different. Is that it?

    I get the Resource Limit message occasionally on my phone (Android Chrome) and on my PC (Windows Firefox).

    It happens occasionally but not all the time. I do know that everyone will need a late model phone pretty soon. At least that is the message I got from my Android phone service provider. Networks are being updated so I had to jettison my perfectly good Motorola phone and buy a 2021 phone.
