    Why is NBC Motorsport talk forum so dog-Arse slow the past few weeks? The title says it all and it’s not at my end with a 16 MB. Comcast cable feed with every other forum on the planet working just fine.

    The load and post times are just outrageous and the site has become basically unusable…




    It loads perfectly fine for me. I’ve seen two personal blogs that load slower just in the past few hours.

    It loads quickly for me as well. Perhaps there is an issue with your browser and that specific site:

    good evening :)

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:


    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.



    Win 7 w/IE 8 and it’s not my browser or my cable feed. I routinely clear the cache multiple times per day. The problem has just occured in the past few weeks at NBC Sports.

    The problem only exists on the NBC Sports website and Motorsportstalk. I run speed tests on my system daily and it’s actually 20 MB. download.



    They are both high traffic websites.



    I’ve conducted some more testing and the issue is definitely with WordPress.

    If I log into WordPress so that I can comment the NBC Sports website comes to a crawl. If I log out it’s normal load speeds. Log back in it’s a crawl. Clear the browser cache and it’s still the same. Use different PCs, it’s still the same. Rebooting it’s still the same.

    BTW, logged in here I don’t experience the slow load speeds. All is normal here. I can load pages fine.



    UPDATE 4-20-13

    Testing is showing when logged into WordPress that a page load takes 6-10 seconds vs. 1-3 seconds when not logged in. Logging out of WordPress also takes 5-9 seconds. Clearing the cache while in or out of WordPress has no effect.
