Problems with Pages Loading

When some of my pages appear, they don't appear completely. They appear as blank, but then appear after I hit the "Go" button or refresh several times. Could this be a problem with the server or hosting? The web pages do feature images and pictures, could that be the cause? If so, how would I solve that problem? Thanks for your help.

Hi AllHale,

This certainly could be a server or bandwidth problem, a problem with your particular connection to the interwebs, or it could be a problem with the size and amount of images on the page.  Seeing a sample could help.

For the last one, DW tells you how big each page is when you are in design view.  Look at the bottom right corner of the Design area and you should see something that says "24k / 2 sec"

That means the current page is 24k with all images and should take 2 seconds to load on whatever connection speed is specified under Edit | Preferences | Status Bar

I'm thinking it is a hosting problem but it could be the images. It says 32K in 5 sec. But it still acts on the fritz. If you would like to see my problem - please go to the following link: http://www.curesicklecelldisease.com.

The index page and a few others feature the problem I described above. Initially there are problems with segments of the page loading, but after you reload the page or hit the go button again the page shows as normal and then may appear as normal after you revisit the page.  Go figure. But when I tested it on other computers, the same problem emerged. It doesn't load completely upon the first visit and requires reloading for all parts to show up. Recently, I refitted it for screens with lower-resolution and then this problem started.

Please visit the link and let me know if you see this problem. Thanks.

Hi AllHale,

I don't have any partial loading problem in FireFox 1.5.  In IE, the Flash loads and nothing else displays, even after a refresh.

I think the problem may be seen by viewing the page source.  At the very bottom of the page, the following code occurs outside of the closing </html> tag:

<!-- text below generated by server. PLEASE REMOVE --><!-- Counter/Statistics data collection code --><script language="JavaScript" src="http://hostingprod.com/js_source/geov2.js"></script><script language="javascript">geovisit();</script><noscript><img src="http://visit.webhosting.yahoo.com/visit.gif?us1153705315" alt="setstats" border="0" width="1" height="1"></noscript>
<IMG SRC="http://geo.yahoo.com/serv?s=76001405&t=1153705315" ALT=1 WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1>

If you check that page against the W3 validator, it really complains:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.curesicklecelldisease.com%2F

I'd fix the above problem first and see if that helps.

Okay, so I went to this site and attempted to make some of the changes. But in Dreamweaver I don't have any lines that are present after 138 like the site says. Every other browser works just fine, except for Internet Explorer. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I obviously need to correct this problem A.S.A.P.

The extra lines are being added by the server.  You may need to talk to the ISP to get this resolved.
