Blogroll, sometimes expanded and others shrinked

Hi!

The blogroll appears sometimes expanded and others shrinked. The first time that i visit the page, appears all shrinked, if i reload then some entries or all appears expanded.

Could be the problem?

The first time after the application start it will retrieve all the blog items. It happens asynchrously so it takes it a few seconds to get them all. They start appear as soon as it gets them. It's by design

Humm... it happens the first time but also after.

I enter in the web with Firefox, appears shrinked, reload and then is expanded yet, if i reload, is always expanded, besides i try with iexplorer7, and is expanded too, this is ok.

Some hours later, i enter again ... and is shrinked again, i don't know why.

Only happens for me? :S

You're not alone and as mads pointed out, it's by design (the reload by an application restart). There is a chance that some code causes your application to be restarted. Another reason is if you have the refresh time in the admin section set on a short interval (e.g. 1-5 mins).

What helps (and is a pretty handy way to boost site performance anyway), is to use some kind of tool that pings/loads your website every x-minutes interval. That way, your application (blog in this case) gets (pre)loaded anyway because of the tool. The next time a 'real user/visitor' loads your page/app, the webserver doesn't need to load the app and saves a significant response time. Good luck and if you want to check the free tool use:
