Why Is WordPress so Slow for over a Month?

  1. I have notised that IE8 started to open my blog and my dashboard in compatibility mode about a month ago. After a Microsoft update. Sometimes this happens in the middle of everything. I too have an issue with slow posting. I hit the update or the publish button and wait much loger than usual for the site to get ready for further writings.

  2. It actually helps to run IE8 in compaibility mode...

    I could not figure out how to do a running log, so I did a series that may identify the problem. The link to the screen shots are at This was done several days ago. Again, this was not an issue before the redesign of last November.

    Many thanks for your input and suggestions.

    Take care,

  5. Hi all:

    I have read through these post eagerly! I have just started using word-press and I am surprised at how slow the site is when I am uploading posts and images. I have wait times of over a minute at times for saving a post as a draft, publishing a post and even previewing it.

    Uploading an image can take up to 1 minute for the interface to provide me with the upload screen once I have clicked the 'upload an image' button.

    When undertaking these actions, my Mac is running hot! I can hear the fan starting up and the CPU activity and processing requirements for my browser go through the roof!!

    I am running a Mac Book Pro with Chrome.

    This certainly does not feel right. Can anyone help out - I am sure I have not provided all the information needed - happy to!!!

    Could be slow if you use Firefox. Ever since I downloaded the newest version some time ago, it's been slow a lot and many pages never loading. Many people say using Chrome works faster for them.

    Are you using the Beta version of Chrome? Also have you tried using Firefox?
