Why is my blog so slow? (6 posts)

    My blog has become painfully slow recently. I can't understand why. I have other sites running from the same domain and they are fine. Is there anything I can do?

    Start with the plugins you have enabled. Next go to any statistics stuff you've got running and see if they're delaying the load.

    Thanks for the quick reply Cypher. I just deactivated the WP-Shortstat plugin and it's faster now.

    Hmmmm.....been using that plugin for a while now without problems.

    Don't know that plugin but I guess it could be the size of the table. I have had some plugins that run through the entire table and may even time out if it is too large (I have to remember to flush the table for CG-Feedread from time to time).

    Yeah, the table for WP-Shortstat was huge. Is there a flush command in phpMyAdmin or should it be a function of the plugin? I'm just doing without the stats as I learn more and, thanks to you and Cypher, I've learned a lot so far.

    Yep, there is in phpMyAdmin a tab called, surprisingly, "Empty" (Not to be confused with "Drop" ;)

    And, yes, there should be, if there isn't, a function in the plugin. There is in CG-Referrer (I mistakenly wrote CG-Feedread earlier).
