Would some one in your company please help the Chevy Avalanche Fan Club straighten out there site. They just updated the site with your software and for some reason the Mac users are having slow loading problems. This page (hxxp:www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php [nonactive]) and any page in the forum takes 5 minutes each to load.
They know they have a problem but they have not been able to correct it.
Hoping you would be able to help.

What browser are you using? Have you tried something like firefox (I believe they do a mac version), to check it's not the browser struggling with some js of some sort.

I bet it's hostname lookups.  Five seconds is the magic number for hostname lookups.

Why should I have to change my software to get that forum when I have no problems here? This appears to be the same forum software. I am using a G3 iMac 333 with OS 8.6 and IE.
Have you got a Mac to try to load the link I sited. If you have, you may be able to see the problem.

Roger,

While I personally prefer Windows and Linux to Macs, I have used Macs and you can be sure SMF has been tested to make sure it works properly with them.  The software itself is not incompatible; rather, some other problem is cropping up.

However, if you use Mac IE, I should note that - especially since Microsoft has completely stopped supporting it - it does not have the best support of the Mac browsers.  I recommend, instead, Camino, Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, Opera, or even OmniWeb (please note that the last has not seen extensive testing with SMF, but I expect it should work anyway.)

For me, the forum runs fine.  If it's a hostname lookup issue, it won't matter what browser you use; otherwise, it will get faster if you use a better/different browser.  If you could just try our suggestions, only temporarily, we would be better able to help you.

The owner of that site has an account here, and another person who is involved in the site does also.  I can contact them and describe what settings might be changed to improve your experience, but I would like to know that it would actually help before doing so.

Thanks,
