I'm on a Mac, OSX.4.11. I've been happily building my site on Yola..but am finding your FILE MANAGER very VERY slow and sticky... Long pauses after any command, etc.
So long that it's pracitcally impossible for me to move files to folders, etc...
(Even though your tutorial page is perfectly clear.)Any thoughts?
Thanx

Have you done the usual be clearing your cache and everything else? Also what type of internet are you using? Is it wireless? If so what is your speed? I sometimes use wireless on my laptop and the file manager loads slow with that even though it is supposed to be one of the fastest recievers.

Hi.Thanks. But, uh...sorry I'm not tech savy enough to know about "clearing my cache". Please feel free to explain how?!! As for my internet--I'm wired in. And it's about as fast as they get--or so they say. I AM however running thru a laptop onto my big screen....

I am sorry but I am not fimiliar with Mac's Internet browswer. But look for in some sort of settings "Clear History or Clear Personal Data" or something along those lines. Other than that there should be no reason why it is loading slow.

Oh never mind the last post I put.
Go up to "tools" then click "options" then click "privacy" then clear everything. That should do it.

My Firefox is in french, so it's a bit different. The only thing about Privacy they offer under this menu is (roughly) "start a private navigation"... But I went ahead and cleared the "downloads" window, as well as the long lists of sites visited in recent days... we'll see if it acts any better....
Thnx again.
