Slow load times experienced

Recommended Posts



Am i the only one experiencing slow load times?

I have only recently started using DMS2 and wanted to do all my new sites using DMS2 but i have found with the test sites i have done so far that they are pretty slow to load.


Now i know that it could be the server it runs on or the code running the site so it is not a simple situation.

What is the best way to optimise / speed up a DMS site?


I really would appreciate any advice - i am freaking out a little about the fact that these sites are slower than other sites which are not DMS based.


Thank you.

Site load times depend on your site & server setup. Could we have a link to your site please? 


Also read through this for tips http://forum.pagelines.com/topic/25369-the-quest-for-speed/?hl=the+quest+for+speed


IF your site is Kitschdesign.co.za then the pingdom report here outlines the site resource load times (most of which is 'waiting' for your server to respond)  http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/buJl4C/www.kitschdesign.co.za


Also a reverse IP check on your site returned 266 sites on your shared server http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-web-server/ 


Simon outlines all this in the post linked above for you and suggests ways to improve all this. 


I hope this helps. 

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
