    I have just looked into it. A certain visitor has been banging the server extremely hard.
    I have temporarily blocked them at the firewall until I can speak to Jim to identify them and put a better solution in place.
    The server should be back up to speed now (y)

    That's better, I lay the blame at the feet of @RogerThat who stated the thread Forum Speed yesterday.

    ok, I have confirmed it was not a logged in member so I am guessing they will remain blocked at the firewall. I was a little concerned about blocking someone totally.
    I will wait for @Jim to look into this.

    Having similar problem on iPad2 @Jim , on quick link tab and select old forum style, get smiley error page. If I close the tab down and reboot I get the old forum page and I have just checked and it is an up to date refreshed version. However, when I go to the quick links tab and old forum style selection, I get the error message again.
    iPad software has been updated recently, but not that recently, and this fault only started after lunch today.

    If you want to refresh the page, tap the circular arrow to the right of the web site address e.g. "motorhomefun.co.uk".

    If you can see a cross symbol next to the address, it means the page is still loading, or stuck if it's been like that for a while. In which case tap the cross and it should turn into a refresh symbol.
