Reader is loading continually

  1. Hi Guys,
    I was just wondering if anyone else has been experiencing the same issue as me.. When I'm accessing the Reader portion of wordpress.com I'm finding that articles continually load until my computer begins to perform extremely sluggishly... I'm just wondering whether this is some kind of problem with WordPress or whether it's something to do with a setting that I can access myself??

    I'm currently using Google Chrome with no extensions enabled... The problem appears in Safari and Firefox also.. :S

    Any help is really really appreciated!!

    Thank You!

    - Michael

  2. I am having the same problem plus more. My reader only loads to a certain point, maybe five articles on "Blogs I follow." Also, I have two subjects that will not delete, no matter how many times I "unfollow" them.

  3. I'm having the same problems and I've just posted that in http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/why-does-the-reader-show-the-same-posts-over-and-over?replies=1#post-1103765
    I really hope we'll get an answer from the support staff soon.

  4. I have the same problem. As a matter of fact it has taken me over 10+ hours now, to finally figure out it's not my computer, but wordpress and the reader section. The system gets bogged down when trying upload the blog posts that I follow - gets hung up w/o being able to connect.

    This problem wasn't an issue prior to last week - I ran three virus protectors, cleared cache almost on an hourly basis and trust me, when I say I'm not new to computers. I had to un-follow every blog I follow so I could get my computer back. The experience has taken hours away from painting, you know being an artist is first not running a wordpress blog.

    I belong to three art communities online with millions of images uploaded and these issues do not exist - ever.

    I'm thinking that it has something to do with wordpress in using "pixel.quantserve.com" for loading blogs in the "blogs I follow" section. Because, as is right now, I'm on a different section of wordpress and I can move around very easily.

    As for "notawoodpecker" comment, many bloggers are encountering the issue and haven't taken the time to write, because they are probably thinking it has to do with their computer. So I'm glad you have no problem w/wordpress, perhaps you weren't following other blogs on wordpress - when you do, I guarantee you that you'll bump up to the same issues as the rest of us.

    This week I'm going to re-examine whether I should go to google blogger and start my blog all over again, at a server that can handle blogger expectations.

    The only benefit I can see right now is that the experience in the last 5 days has made me re-think a portion of my business model and force myself to evaluate with I have a blog, it's purpose and what expectations I have for server functions.

    It's time for wordpress to address the issue with their blogging community and let us know what is going on. And the simple answer to change size of images is not the total answer, you have a responsibility with your bloggers to address the issue let us know at the very least that you are working on it.

    Bloggers want followers, but will not have many if they run into this issue while using WordPress.

  6. Hello bloggers!
    I'm sorry yopur experiencing these issues.

    Before creating new threads, which can fall between the cracks, it's always best to search.

    Rather than posting into more than one thread on the same issue, which can also result in falling between the cracks please, post into only one.

    When posting into any thread for technical assistance post what's relevant ie. your operating system, browser details and a description of what you are experiencing. (Note that posting over and over into the same thread or into multiple threads only to commiserate with others is not helpful.)

    Post only into this thread which is tagged for Staff attention http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/reader-doesnt-load?replies=37 so we can keep all bloggers experiencing Reader issues together, as I'm tagging all the other threads for closure.

  7. Dear All,
    In recently days, I got same problem. My computer hangs or freezes frequently due to Reader is loading continually.
    Today, I have tried to remove pixel.quantserve.com, then restart my computer. The result is ... voillaaa.... Reader can load more faster and faster.
    I suggest WordPress team should investigate what happens on quantserve.com
