Update Problem w/ Load Time

Recommended Posts

gwbodywork

After updating to the latest version many things went wonky - which took hours to correct. The one problem that is persisting is the page loading. Page loading is now PAINFULLY SLOW and when it draws the page the Feature Slider multiplies & stacks 4+ high before it finally lands on the page. Can someone take a look at what I'm referring to and give me some feedback / suggestions? Thanks

It may be your browser cache. It loaded instantly for me and I'm on a really crappy laptop. It could be your hosting company's lack of resources. Have you considered going to a WP-centric host like page.ly?

Hey There, So this seems like a "script battle" between the 14 different js map files, and the js that loads the feature slider. http://screencast.com/t/mWNUz4Z1 So the map scripts load, then the js for the slider, so on some internet connections, you may see it flickr out with the 4 slides, or however many you have there. Thats likely the markup, before the JS kicks in to hide the stuffs. I visited the site though and it loaded fine for me. Some things you can look into doing: 1. Get on a CDN network. Sign up with MaxCDN or something, it's pretty cheap and uber easy to setup. 2. Consider moving to a host that specializes in WP, like Rob above suggested. 3. Did I mention moving away from GoDaddy? ;) Nick

Hi guys - Thanks so much for the feedback. Right now I'm hosted w/ Hostmonster which has been great up til now. I'll look into your suggestions. I've been dumping my cache, since I was having so many issues I wanted to be sure that wasn't affecting anything, so can rule that one out. Thanks again. Glen

I think the 14 javascripts that load are what Nick referred to mostly. Likely your PHP RAM resources are being maxed out.
