Extremly Slow Loading Time

Recommended Posts


I have the same problem with my website but I just started! I have less than one page done. My site is so slow that I haven't even able to finish one page! I was reading previous posting and everybody installed the W3 Total Cache plugin so I was about to install it BUT the video tutorial for W3 Total Cache plugin says that it should be installed until the website is done. What can I do? I have my hosting in godaddy and someone told me that godaddy was very slow in running wordpress. What can I do? I am desperate!!! www.canadaes.com.mx

Please try deactivating all active plugins on your WordPress dashboard to see if the site continues to load slowly.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Ingrid, please take a look at the post below. Very similar to the problems you've been encountering and some possible solutions enclosed.


You will need to disable W3 Total Cache as it will stop you from seeing any updates you make to your site during the designing process.

I've just tested your site in Pingdom and some of your images are over 2mb. The total page load is 4.5mb, which is far too large for the web, if you reduce them down you'll notice your site will speed up dramatically. The results of the test can be seen here http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/zJM5sBlWn/http://www.canadaes.com.mx/

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.

      for some reason the pageless css file is increasing the loadtime (file taks 1.6 to 2.8 sec to load). I'm talking about the Pageless file (http://afrankadvice.nl/?pageless=1_1409431991)  Can anybody help me to solve this issue so my site will load faster.

      Hi to all,
      Last night I looked at using Flipper to load specific pages with a meta key and value applied. This has all worked well but for some reason the posts (pages) are loading slowly compared to other web elements on my web page.
      Could someone please take a look and let me know how I can speed it up? Everything else on the page loads quickly. It just takes a few more seconds to load the posts: http://www.jawdesigns.co.uk/portfolio/
      Kind regards,

      I was curious why our video is loading so slow on our site we are working on http://pharmacistrecruitersusa.com/
      When its finally up and running it runs smooth, but until it loads it just a blank white screen. This is just a sample video as well, low quality. Its going to take forever to load when we get a better quality video in place of it.
      So why is it taking so much time to load?
      Is there a program or settings you suggest to make the video load quicker?
      I used after effects to render out my mp4 and then used a convertor for the webm and ogg

      Installed and updated the plugin and could barely use wordpress.  I did a scan and the speed was a D, I deactivated it and deleted it and now performance is better and backend loads better.  Uninstalled all other plugins til I got to that and it is what was slowing site down.  Just wanted to let you know.
