I have just installed Fuel. I experience buffering when looking at http://####/index.php?/fuel/pages and other pages e.g. http://####/index.php?/fuel/blocks. The rest of the interface works fine I am able to see the dashboard, add files, edit pages.
What simple thing am I missing
What do you mean by buffering? Do you mean the spinning loader icon? If so, if you view the develop console in your browser, do you see any errors from AJAX requests?
