For the past few months, it’s been difficult to click the arrows to go to the next page in a thread. I’ve experienced it on multiple phones. 

I usually resort to typing in the number of the next page and hitting enter on my keyboard.

This situation points to a lack of communication and prompt and consistent acknowledgement of “technical issues” from the Wedding Bee administration.

When these “technical issues” appear, the users of this site are the ones who bring it up, usually asking if other Bees are experiencing the same difficulties. For example, the time stamp and inbox issues. It is then later that the problem is mentioned by the administration, always stating that they are working on it.

There are no announcements of changes either, such as the Pinterest pinning option for all posted photos. It took a site user to point it out.

How can the Wedding Bee drive more new users to the site, and attract new advertisers/business possibilities when it doesn’t seem interested in identifying, addressing and correcting these problems in a timely and efficient manner?

I am unable to read full threads. I get a message saying this website is using significant memory and when I try to see another page, it spins and spins but never goes to that page. This has actually been going for several months and has made using WB difficult.

As with all situations, look at action, not words. The deficiencies of the board software are too numerous to list, and they only increase.The owners of the site are not interested in making it better or easier to use. That’s because their version of better means packed so full of ads that the javascript keeps running and slows page load. I expect that eventually there will be ads running between every post.

Comments that I’ve tried to edit ended up getting deleted somehow.

Having the same issue with the database error. Cannot read my inbox for example.

Same database error. Sometimes stuff loads, sometimes it doesn’t. So. Damn. Frustrating. 

Now my text box is disappearing when I try to type a comment to post so I’m typing blindly without being able to see any of it. It’s done this on and off for months though. Beyond annoying!

The damn database connection errors. Can’t even moderate due to those. Not sure I can even post this, 4 tries in.

Chiming in on the database errors, every other time I click on something I get one.

Only half a page loads and recently I get an error message and it won’t open at all. 

I DON’T THINK YOU’RE TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO AT WORK NOW???

Same with the database errors. 🙁 Very hard to navigate the site, and I’m feeling like I want to give up at this point.
