All of wordpress really slow for me - looks like windows mobile

    It's taking myself and my housemate (diff computers) 2 mins to open a page - and it looks like it was on windows mobile.

    Both my website - http://www.speakingofresearch.com, and the main wordpress pages are all like this.

    The rest of the web works fine, and weirdly I can ping the website with very low timings.

    The blog I need help with is speakingofresearch.com.

  2. The URL you have posted is not valid and cannot be loaded. In fact a whois search provides the information that you specify with the "www" in the URL the domain is available for purchase.

    However, minus the "www" the URL does produce a blog being free hosted by wordpress.com and it loads in seconds time. See here > http://ismyblogworking.com/speakingofresearch.com

    Presumably you have purchased domain mapping from your wordpress.com root blog to that domain. In order to receive assistance with your issue I suggest you contact Staff with all of your details and ask for their assistance http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  3. @timethief the original URL has a comma at the end, that's why it didn't load for you.

    @speakingofresearch for me, http://www.speakingofresearch.com loads quickly. but i too have problems displaying the stylesheets, and it makes it look like a mobile layout.

    i've determined that my problem is WebSense blocking the domain that the CSS files are hosted on (wp.com). but you might be having a different issue if the page takes a long time to load. contact support. they helped me resolve my issue quickly.

  4. Thanks I have my theme set up to display a mobile theme here > Appearance > Extras >
    ___ Display a mobile theme when this blog is viewed with a mobile browser

    Thanks for returning and telling us Staff resolved your issue.
    Happy blogging. :)

    Sometimes it works fine, sometimes the whole of wordpress is slow as hell - what can explain these changes?

  6. If you want an answer to that question you will have to provide Staff with all your details. Every time Staff deals with a technical issue they need to know:

    1. Your operating system and how you connect to the internet and to wordpress.com.
    2. Your browser and your browser version.
    3. Whether or not you have tried this > http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/
    4. A very good description of the exact problem

    1. Windows 7
    2. Firefox 3.6.3 (and also with IE8 x64)
    3. Yes tried all of the above
    4.

    Most of the time I use wordpress the page takes ages to load (if it loads at all). It often comes up looking like Windows Mobile. Often it takes 3 mins to load a page.

    My connection is fine for all other webpages.

    I just want to make sure that you do report your details to Staff by creating a support ticket and I can't tell from your last response if you did contact them yet or not. Here's that link again http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
