NextGEN Gallery
Running Slow - How To Speed Up (1 post)

    I recently changed to a new theme, Magnifizine. My old theme was fine with Nextgen, but this new theme, causes Nextgen to slow the site way down. I found some other posts, where people had talked about caching plugins fixing the issue, but I have yet to figure out how to get it to work. If I just have Nextgen installed to an older version, and no galleries installed it loads fine. But if I install my galleries or update to the newest version it causes my site to take about 5 seconds to load.

    Right now I have it disabled, but I really really really love this plugin. Anyone out there with any fixes, work arounds, hacks, anything would be appreciated. Another thing they talked about in some other topics I read on this it said you could set it so Nextgen only loads on speicfic pages. Since I have soooo many pages with these albusm on them, I was wondering if it was possible to make it so Nextgen would just not load on the main page. Or maybe make it the last thing to load so the user can still nnavigate the content, as nextgen does its thing in the background.

    Anyways I hope this is enough information. My site is

    concertaddicts.ca

    If someone wants me to turn it on so they can see how slow it runs, I would be more than happy to.

    Thanks in advance.
