wordpress not loading

  1. As of yesterday, your web site was slowly loading, and now today it is trying so hard to open. i have to open it and close it, try different times, then finally it loads. the stats have quit showing the graphs now also. i have cleaned cache, cookies, and everything i can think of. wordpress is the only site i am struggling with. can you help? so afraid i am going to lose all of my stories and followers.............

    The blog I need help with is terry1954.wordpress.com.

  2. (1) How are are connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com?

    I'm asking because the way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers. Also note that the main dashboard isn’t designed to work with touch devices through the tablet and smartphone browsers.

    (2) Exactly which browser and version of it are you using. If you don’t know click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/

    (3) Have you tried?
    clearing your browser cache and cookies > http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050
    using the browser with all extensions or add-ons disabled
    confirming third party cookies are enabled http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=61416
    updating the browser to the latest stable version (not a buggy BETA browser version) http://browsehappy.com/
    using another browser

    Note: If you are running IE9 in compatibility mode then be aware that it renders as IE7 and IE7 is not supported.

    (4) Are you logging in using the secure https:// log-in? see http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

  3. i use firefox, and have been using the same system since i started in march of this year. i have never had any problems ever until yesterday. I cleaned cookies, cache, and checked for spam and viruses, and the computer is fine. i log in through my app for WP button, like I always have. I use yahoo mail and facebook which are all working fine. Even when I go on to search, and find wordpress, it comes up to me, but won't show my stats, the graph. i got lucky and right now it is working again. I have a desktop computer only and I am hooked up through satellite, I think, because I am hooked up through my television company. i have wireless modem though
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0.1

  4. Just to provide a data point: I started having problems getting to wordpress.com today as well.

    After a few failures (in Chrome, IE, Firefox), I decided to check it out via dev tools (in Chrome)... recording the Network and Timeline.
    Eventually wordpress.com came up.
    From the Network tab it seems there is one request that was holding it all up:

    http://s0.wp.com/_static/ took 2.3 minutes to show up.
    The full request includes more, of course:

    http://s0.wp.com/_static/??/wp-includes/css/admin-bar.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/notes/admin-bar-rest.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/subscriptions/follow.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/hover-bubbles/style.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/instapost/css/reset.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/instapost/instapost.css,/wp-includes/js/thickbox/thickbox.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/instapost/css/light.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/admin-bar/wpcom-admin-bar.css,/i/noticons/noticons.css,/wp-content/mu-plugins/post-flair/style.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/reset.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/tabs.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/fresh.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/my-blogs.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/notifications.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/post.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/reader.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/settings.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/welcome.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/tabs/css/stats.css,/wp-content/js/select2/select2.css,/wp-content/themes/h4/global.css?m=1345671269j

    The rest seemed to be delivered just fine (in ms, rather than minutes)

    I'm connecting via cable (Cox Cable) from North-Central Florida (USA).
    I tried various browsers, with the same results. Most commonly Chrome 21.x
    UA string matching that: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/21.0.1180.83 Safari/537.1

    I did not try to clear cache, or disable all plugins, sorry - but now that it all got delivered, even incognito mode seems to work without the huge hickup...

    HTH

  5. Everything working fine with the browser I use until this morning when, suddenly, there was a new way, a new page or something, to use to log in. It has caused me problems big time. I have no idea how many viewers/users have not been able to get into my blog today. How about WordPress.com goes back to the previous means of loggin in? How's that for a fix to my problem and similar problem experienced by others? Is WordPress.com trouble-shooting this "new" log in system as of Aug. 22nd? What I'm saying is, I think the problem is caused by WordPress's new log in system and is not caused by blog owners.

  6. i agree. you changed the log in and now it is all messed up. this is my way to the world being at home all the time caring for my brother. i lean on wordpress and am so upset because it is not working at all right now. now i can not even get on it period. please quit asking us what we are doing wrong. after this many months of using it the same way every day and now the change, this should tell u something wordpress staff, it is on your side this time/ please fix!!!

    WP not loading or loading slow is it because of all the advertisements on the site now every time I sign in all I see is advertisements at the top. What is going on I don't like seeing someone asking me to hook up for a chat thinking I'm a guy.. on my dashboard come on guys.

  8. Also having problems with the pretty new front page to the site. The log-in just "spins" and goes nowhere. Working around by going in via my blog to the dashboard.

  9. I'm a problem-solver so I've found secret "ways" to get into my blog. But, hey, why am I having to outsmart WordPress.com's new log in system??

  10. As of this afternoon when I try go to my blog it is black with only the title showing. I had a friend try to view the site from her computer by typing in my URL and it went to the wordpress home instead of my blog.

    Also, if I try to view stats it freezes for a long time...

    I've restarted and deleted my cache...still not working...

    The blog I need help with is macrocritters.wordpress.com.

  11. i am having all the same problems you are all talking about!! it can't be us when there are so many of us with the same complaints. spin and spin and nothing all day long

  12. Similar problems with wordpress.com "spinning" rather than loading. I discovered that if I have a link in my history to "jump" me to the Dashboard, I have no problems, but if I try to get to anything on the main WP page (stats, Freshly Pressed) etc, it hangs indefinitely. Afraid to close my browser (which will log me out, and clear history and cache) for fear I'll have no way to get back in.

  13. I'm able to access wordpress.com to login, but my site is not loading:

    safeguardthesouthfork.wordpress.com

    with a site redirect to safeguardthesouthfork.org

    The error I am getting is "server is busy."

    Is anyone else having trouble accessing their wordpress site?

  14. I am also having problems. I got on by googling my blog name. Had no problems this morning. The problem started late this afternoon.

    I did notice this morning that I was having issues with the preview function.

    I agree with all of you. Been very slow for several days. Nothing different at this end and all other sites I use load OK.
    WordPress problem.

  16. Howdy all,

    We're currently investigating some network-related performance issues that affect the WordPress.com dashboard. I apologize for any inconvenience--things should be back to normal soon. :)

    Best,
    P.
