Help Fix My Gurgling Toilet!

When I take a shower or run the dishwasher the toilet will gurgle and not flush correctly. Is the drain pluged? If I wait 2 or 3 hours all is good but when water is poured down the drain the noise (gurgle) still is there. No water collects in the tub when I shower and drain takes it away quickly.
Here is a link with more information on gurgling toilets.
Your drain could be partially blocked and the extra running water is hurting the flush. However, my guess is that the toilet is "wet vented" using the drains rather than a separate vented pipe. So, when the dishwasher or the shower runs, the vent for the toilet is being filled with water.
