Scotlands People
« on: Thursday 31 August 17 11:08 BST (UK) »
Is anyone else having issues with searches on SP?

I have tried accessing using  different search engines ( Google Chrome and Safari) but, I found the site has been running really slowly for the last few days.

Also my searches seems to drop specified area criteria ,  thus returning every possible throughout the country which takes several minutes to complete.

Wondered if anyone else has found this.....before I email my complaint

Thanks Rosie, I did try to locate any thread on this subject but I couldn't find one.
I looked in every section except  The Common Room... Duh

Got a seat booked at the GRO for tomorrow and wanted to get a head start on possible records but, it's going so slow that I've given up.

Continual bebugging error notice on specified searches is driving me nuts.!

It was only that I had seen it the other day so just put Scotlands people into search within '10' days

Hope you manage to find what you want for tomorrow.

I was having problems too and thought it was my tablet/broadband connection! It kept showing some Ajax error.

Hi all,

Not sure how often you all use SP but I noticed quite a while back when searching, having maybe been on deaths & moving to births or census' etc. when choosing options for places & then pressing search I was often not getting results which others such as MonicaL (a fantastic researcher) was able to find after I'd searched & I kept thinking I was doing things wrong until more recently with research of my own (with much knowledge) & knowing something should be there, that's when I realised that the changeover from one place to another is chronic to say the least  ???

I could get a 'slow boat to China' & back by the time the options do a changeover  ;D

I don't know what on earth they've done but it isn't good & I also thought initially when I discovered the snail pace that it was my comp or internet connection  :-\

Seems progress nowadays should be renamed as 'regress'  ???

That said, we have the best system in the world at a great price & a pretty good navigating system when you compare many others!!!  ;)

The IT team just need to get it right & if things are slow because of 'in-house' comp work at least let us know what to expect as the speed is not great.

I wonder if they are adding additional info...I could put up with the slow speed if I knew there was a wee surprise at the end of it  :P
