Odd javascript errors [2.1b2]

ZhaanZhaan Professional fool ✭✭

My users are reporting that they sometimes get "Whoops! You need to enable javascript to do that." when they perform certain actions on my board, such as bookmarking a thread or editing a post.

I've experienced this issue a few times myself, and occasionally there will be a Vanilla notification saying "There was an error performing your request. Please try again."

Do you think this is an issue with my forum, or is it a client-side problem? Any input appreciated.

    If you want to speed things up - don't use google fonts or have lots of things coming from facebook, etc on other sites.

    widgets.js from is particularly slow

    every thing coming from social networking sites will take a big performance chunk out of your site for people with slow internet connections.

    This is very true. Also a good reason to make sure any external scripts don't block loading of the page properly. I run ghostery and you would be amazed how much faster loading most sites are.

    Then you come across a site that is set up poorly (or purposely) that will not load unless tracking/social JavaScript is running.
