HobbyLink Japan and Social Networking plugin issues
« on: August 13, 2011, 03:38:48 PM »

Hey gang,

Anyone else using Chrome and finding that the product listing pages on HLJ are awfully slow to use after they appear to have loaded?
I was! Then I found out why: the facebook Like button on each product. It causes HLJ to make an API call to the Facebook website for each product on the page.

How to fix it: Block the plugin, somehow. How'd I do it? The Chrome addon Disconnect.
This extension prevents the Like button from loading.

"Okay, Shaid, I did this ish, and it's still slow?" Well, that's the Google Plus plugin doing that. Just block it aswell. I find it's not too bad to keep running, Facebook is the big killer.

Also, Firefox doesn't appear to have this problem. Additional disclaimer: No one else might have this issue in Chrome either, it might just be me. Though it was happening on my Mac (eww) at work and my PC at home. /shrug

@GaijinGunpla: Don't know if you're able to, but would you be able to pass something onto your webteam at HLJ about how they're using the Facebook plugin? Maybe ask them to investigate if there's a better way to do it. It can cause issues with the browser due to the sheer number of connections it asks the browser to make to Facebook. Possibly use json or ajax to do it as a delayed asynchronous action instead of a direct load. Or let me know who to contact about it, and I can write them a more detailed image. Also, it only affects Chrome, really.

Are you sure its making a separate request for each like button?, im using the facebook api for a project at uni and it makes one or two connections and gets all it needs

Also im using chrome and both mac/pc with no issues, you using any other extension at  work that might affect it??

Either way some helpful facebook removal info

Anyone else having issues with the G+ button on GAF?

Thanks for the tip Shaid. I will forward this on to HLJ and move the thread to the forum feedback/glitches area.

Yeah, it's making separate requests for each one. Atleast for me. Also, it's possible an extension is causing it. It's also more likely my clam chowdering wireless card is the main issue. ;)

Im not, and due to the theme stuff and the nature of my uni project im inadvertently testing it on many browsers and platforms lol

@shaid: ah i assumed coz you said it happened at work and at home that it wasnt an internet connection based issue if its the same net at both though id definitely be looking at that

Was on HLJ last night and yes, it was painfully slow (using Chrome on a mac- YAY!!! :P ).
So slow I didnt buy anything from their current sale........ !!!!

Figured it was the FB/G+ connectivity which appears to be relatively new on HLJ but wasnt sure how to fix it so thanks for the heads up!!!
