Hey

The forum seems to have issues with ajax loading, it keeps loading incomplete without layout. Doing a manual refresh on the same page seems to fix it but you cant expect a user to know that, this is unintended behavior, any tips to fix?

Hey, didn't even know you replied, it seems emails from this forum goes to spam. Anyways, you can see the issue I'm talking about by going to my site and clicking on Forums: here  

You'll see it fails to load properly with ajax, but if you refresh the same page or go to the page directly, it loads fine. Please assist.

Hi @ram130,

Please deactivate the W3 Total Cache plugin and check it again. If it works just exclude forum page from plugin settings.

Please do yourself a favor and uninstall W3TC. There are a lot of really good caching plugins if you need one. W3TC is only trouble and huge load for your site.

Also in wpForo pages, you are still (i think) using W3TC Minified using disk as i see in the html code.

Finally exclude wpforo pages from Yoast SEO. Right now you have both (Yoast AND wpForo SEO).

I disabled W3, still same, I don't think this forum works well with AJAX on the initial log, I think they have a bug here. 

Thanks, what plugin do you recommend? I tried a few like auto optimized, but that was on my previous theme and it had caused some design issues, so maybe its good now. Let me know what you recommend. 

 

Thanks for the heads up on the site map, I'm gonna make adjustments tonight and let you know.

About your problem: it could be a theme or some plugin conflict. How to solve it ? I'm afraid the hard way, switch to the default theme and check if the problem is gone. If not, enable your theme and disable your plugins one by one to see what the conflict is.

Also you could enable WP Debug to a LOG and check for errors, sometimes it gives hints about a problem.

About the caching: what web server are you on (i can't see since you use CF)  ?

Well like I said it's ajax, there is a bug with this forum and ajax on initial load, and devs are refusing to even look into it and fix it. Just because I'm the only one reporting it.  I know for a fact its ajax, as when I'm logged into admin, ajax is disabled and the forum loads fine. 

 

Anyways I'm using Site5 as a host and CF.

I'm afraid that if you don't follow the std WP debug procedure (disable plugins, switch to default theme and also debug.log) you will not find the cause. It is up to you of cource.

As for developers, they actually look into each and every problem, if it exists. They are among the friendliest i have seen.
