Upgrading from FM4.1 to FM5.5 Unlimited (PC)

Help me! :-)

I've just in the process of upgrading our company's web-based FMPro dbase. It used to run on FM4.1.

When upgraded the database takes many times *longer* to log a user on (the html pages use portal and other commands to fetch the list of users from the dbase), but once in the dbase searches etc are *many* times faster.

Is there a secret setting that I'm missing to speed up the log-on? The html is copied below.

I'd really really appreciate your help.




<h2>Database ([fmp-currenttoken]): Login</h2>


Please select user i.d., enter password, and press "Login":

<form action="fmpro" method="post">

<input type="hidden" name="-db" value="[fmp-currentdatabase: raw]">

<input type="hidden" name="-lay" value="check_login">

<input type="hidden" name="-recid" value="[fmp-currentrecid]">

<input type="hidden" name="-edit">



<td align=right>

User :

<td colspan=2>

<select name="_user">

[fmp-if: currentcookie:cdb_user .eq.]

<option value="" selected>- select your id -


<option value="[fmp-cookie:cdb_user]" selected>[fmp-cookie:cdb_user]


[fmp-portal: show_users]

<option value="[fmp-field: show_users::user]">[fmp-field: show_users::user]




<td align=right>

Password :

<td colspan=2>

<input type=password name="_passwd">


<input type="hidden" name="_ip_addr" value="[fmp-clientip]">

<input type="hidden" name="client_state: laugh.gif" border="0 b_name"


<input type="hidden" name="-script" value="check_login">

<input type="hidden" name="-target" value="_top">

<input type="hidden" name="-format" value="add_menu.cdml">

<input type="submit" value="Login !">

Am working through it trying to find more clues.

It seems to be something to do with valuelists - the longer the lists, the longer they take to come thru' the webcompanion (ie much faster in 4.1 and slow in 5.5).

The code is:

[fmp-valuelist: itema, list=levels]

<option value="==[fmp-valuelistitem]">[fmp-valuelistitem]


Any thoughts would be appreciated.
