Within the past few minutes every time I click on something it takes at least 2 minutes to load it.

Due to the persistent slowness issues, I have switched off guest access to the gallery for the time being.  We would like to allow public access to all photos members would like visible to the world, but we need the site to be usable for members first.  Note if you wish to link to or embed an image you've uploaded here, you may still do so by direct URL to the image file, rather than the gallery image page.

For example, instead of linking to https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-191911, I would link to https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/albums/userpics/10246/circline-sw.jpg.  You can typically determine the image file URL by right-clicking on the image itself and choosing to copy the image address.

Thank you! :D Glad this came about, see some of the bots dropping like flies! ;D Hopefully this can help the preformance issues going on, i had it take a good 3 minutes to load the home page as of late. :P

Agreed, during the past week or so the site would pretty much grind to a halt at around 9PM EST or so. Thanks for the temporary fix for now.

Won't that eventually make it impossible to search the gallery using google?

The built in search functions on forums never seam to work very well.

Not sure, I rarely if ever use Google, it tracks too much for my liking. But hopefully this will only be a temporary measure.

I think the pick up in speed is due to Patrick limiting the gallery to logged in members only.  :wndr:
