Really slow pageless load

Recommended Posts

claire pickle

Hi there


Hope someone can help me, I'm not very technical.


I'm having speed issues and cache plugins haven't solved the problem, it seems to take between 3 and 30 seconds for my site to go fetch this file mysite/?pageless=1_1408185209. 


Had a quick look and can't understand the compiler thing, but read somewhere it could be a RAM issue with the hosts.


If that is the case can I direct it to a static css file somewhere and maybe just recopy the compiled file if I make any updates?


Thanks Claire

Hi Claire,


The likely cause of your issue is your host itself, the compile CSS file will load instantly if you view it in your browser. If you do use a site performance service such as Pingdom, the compiled CSS file will be shown to load slow as it is one of the last things to load. However, this isn't the cause of your sites slow performance, it is likely you're on a shared hosting environment.


If you provide a link to the site in question, we can run a test to see if this is the case.

Hi Danny


Thanks for getting back to me, you are quite right I was using Pingdom to test the speed, and I thought it was the css as quite often it loads without any styling..  The site is seehearvisibility.org.uk, It was built around a year ago and speed was OK, but now it seems awful, I really struggle to get anything done in the admin pages too, which was never the case before.


Is there anything I can say to the hosts, we have other none wordpress sites on the same server which are superfast.

OK, Claire, I have just this moment done a reverse IP check and found there are 1000 websites on the server your site is hosted on. This is the cause of your issue, you're using shared hosting and all these 999 other websites are sharing the same server resources as you.

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?

      Hi, could you let me know where the custom less/css is saved to - i.e. how I could access it directly via the server.
      I hid the Admin Bar by mistake and now can't save any changes to the Custom CSS as the Save Button is not available - so I need to find another way to access and edit the custom CSS.
      Thanks in advance

      I've been trying to upload a video to use as a video background, but the size was 12m, and the alotted max file size is 8m. I downloaded a couple of pugins that increase the size by creating php.ini files and all of that jazz, but to no avail. It would say (Max file size = 250mb) but after I uploaded I would get an "HTTP ERROR",
      Soooo I logged into my cpanel and saw that the php I was using was 4 version out of date. I upgraded my php to PHP 5.6 and now I get
      Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 39583744) (tried to allocate 15 bytes) in /homepages/39/d200014696/htdocs/dymondentertainment.com/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.plugin.php on line 848
      When I activiate another theme that is not pagleines, the site works fine.... but will no longer work with Pagelines DMS Version 2.2
      My site has no gone dark. What can I do?

      I installed DMS for a new site and got an error message on install and when I install any plugin.
      Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /nfs/c09/h04/mnt/208781/domains/prevailcoffee.co/html/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/less.legacy.php on line 818
      I installed the latest DMS
      Please advise. I'm now having issues getting any plugins to work. Not sure what to do next.
