Is Dashboard block creation/modification very slow?

by rfarmeriowa on Sat Dec 26, 2015 9:54 am

Just starting to use adafruit.io. I have successfully created a feed and am adding data to it every five minutes.

Now I am trying to edit my dashboard but there are lots of basic issues:
1. When clicking the link that says "Edit your dashboard blocks and layout," nothing happens except that a small gray line creeps across the displayed page from right to left. Then a small blue dot follows the small gray line from right to left. This takes several minutes, but there is no indication of what's going on or what the small gray line or blue dot mean.

2. When I create a new block, it doesn't appear immediately but DOES sometimes appear later, so it's difficult to know what's happening.

3. Is there a link from https://www.adafruit.com/ to https://io.adafruit.com/ ?
If so, I couldn't find it.

I really like the tools available on the dashboard, but creating or modifying a block seems to be very slow although it may work eventually. Thanks for your work and any suggestions, especially on the above questions.

What browser and operating system are you using?

We don't have a link to IO from the other sites yet. We'll figure something out eventually, but don't want to promote it too much while we're still in the beta.

Windows 7/Internet Explorer 11 - nothing fancy. I didn't try Firefox or Chrome - would they work better/faster?

Sure enough - Chrome seems to run much faster, so maybe it's just an issue with IE, although IE is what I usually use.

Thanks for the feedback. We'll check out IE11 and see if we can speed it up a bit.

Hello,
I'm getting the same issue, was there any changes made? I cannot see my dashboard neither and things are very slow. Looks like all the blocks were removed from the dashboard, When adding a new block, it's not immediately showing or is in a tiny window. Tried with both IE and Chrome. Worked ok yesterday 12/26 and dashboard and feeds were operational, not today anymore.
Thanks!
