yes both on same server (well its a 1and1 shared hosting). but i never had any problems before - im almost convinced that its the webassist image resizer - then but again, once all the images have been cached they are simply stored on the hosting under a folder - so that wouldnt make my theory correct. with regard to the homepage perhaps its the way i have structured the coding for the record sets as getting those images displayed in the middle was a bit messy since the way they are stored in the database. but before i fix the homepage wanted to get the admin open orders code sorted first.
hmm im scraching my head as it seems to work faster now but it doesnt update itself so i have to refresh the browser to show the new saved results. all confused. as i uploaded the file back onto the server.
