Site Loading Slow with Social Media Widget Active? (7 posts)

    One of my sites has been loading slow lately, actually a few are, but I have been running tests & on the one I tested so far when I deactivated the social media widget plugin the site instantly started to load quickly. Has anyone else noticed a slower loading site lately with this plugin activated? Or maybe it is my hosting.

    We've had the same issue, removing the plugin instantly fixed the site loading problems.

    Not sure why this is occurring for you guys. I will do some testing and see if I can replicate the issue.

    Yes I have the same problem since they updated to version 3.
    Today I tried version 3.3 and it's still very slow.
    Damm pluggin.
    It was fine before version 3 so I reverted to an older version and it's fine.

    Still looking into this. I will update the thread when it's fixed.

    I can confirm that enabling this plugin (even with no social sites added) makes my site load VERY slow. Something changed recently, as it didn't have this problem when I first installed this plugin last year.

    I am on WP 3.5.1 and the theme is 2011.

    I have the same problem. I currently have version 2.9.7 installed and it works all fine. As soon as I update to the current 3.3 version the website takes 5 minutes to load. So for now I reverted back to 2.9.7.
