When I try opening a page or saving it, it always freezes. I see the pointer swirling around (I have a mac) and around for a long time, and then a message pops up: "The code is not working (I can't remember the exact wording, sorry), would you like to stop or continue?"
If I press Stop, I often find bits of work hasn't been saved.
If I press Continue, I don't lose work but sometimes the page will freeze again and the message will come up again.
It's annoying. It doesn't happen to every single page but it does on about half of them, especially the longer pages.
I don't know what 'code' it's talking about. I don't use any that aren't provided by WordPress or is average HTML. If a code doesn't work in WP, I can usually tell because it doesn't show up on the page on "View the page".
Could it be the movies I link to on my page? I put a link to images that when people click on the image, it takes them to a new window with a movie on it? (I prefer this to embedding BTW for special reasons of my own).
I don't know what I'm doing that freezes the page. I don't use a lot of fancy code at all. I just put images up from Photobucket and put links to other sites up.
It's annoying because it slows my work and often these pages are the same ones that are awfully slow to work on - when I paste something or type something on the page, it takes forever to show up. Even pressing return can take a while to see the results.
It doesn't happen for every page, some pages - especially the ones I've just started up and don't have a lot on them - are fine.
But these freezing and slow pages are a chore to work on. It can take hours to write up a page when it should take only 30 minutes or so. It's become a persistent problem now that I've built up quite a number of pages on my blog that I am forced to write a post on this.
Thanks for any replies.
