Solved a forum loading issue

Just to let you know, I've solved an issue that meant the index page was slow to load when first visiting the site.

It would only affect users that have set their browser to delete the cache, site settings, history etc when closing your browser. It was the Font Awesome icons that were slow to load.



I know I'm kinda paranoid about keeping my PC clean, but now the site loads perfectly first time, every time. Also, to speed things up, the top banner has been converted to a GIF image which is much smaller in size.

This Font Awesome issue has been a pain for over a year, so I am really pleased it is now fixed.

Look out Bill Gates - sharper minds are about. Many are the talents of most caretakers.

I'd love to respond to your post, but I had better not. My views are unlikely to be the same as others and to be honest, those subjects are hotter than a red hot poker on heat [Big grin.png]
