WordPress site loading extremely slowly (27 posts)

    Getting this site live, having problems.
    http://www.gigastrategy.com

    Loading had been just fine - never thought it loaded slowly whatsoever.

    Today I switched themes (To Genesis, and its Child theme). I added in Them Test Drive plugin. Somewhere over the course of this all my problem started.

    Where I am now:
    - All plugins disabled.
    - Browser cache cleared
    - Verified slow load times with another computer on different network
    - Host says there don't seem to be any problems from their end

    Any help appreciated.

    FIrst your site is too big. 800k, 600k in like 75+ images alone. That's 3 minutes plus for a dial-up user.
    TOo many Objects and Calls.
    Plus looks like you are getting a lot of content (images?) remotely.
    And the Youtube and facebook objects don't help either.

    Software like WordPress delivers pages via the dynamic publishing method. Any software using this type of generation is inherently going to be slower when loading in comparison to pages published statically. The reason for this delay is due in large part to where your content is stored, but more importantly the retrieval of the pages. When someone visits your WordPress site, the software delivers your pages dynamically, producing them as they are called upon by a browser. So basically, the actual HTML pages that visitors to your site see are created on the fly so to speak. It is during the process of generating HTML pages which contributes to additional lag time. These dynamic pages are not stored on the server like a static page is. Another contributing factor involves making changes to your content. For example, if you go into the administrative panel of your WordPress software and add a new post, WordPress goes through a process regenerating several of your pages if not all of them. Furthermore, many folks will get motivated to change out the template. A move like that will cause every single page to be regenerated too. If you take a big website created with WordPress and every single page is being regenerated from a content change, it would not be a surprise if the server slowed to a crawl. So I would start with the hosting company and see if they have any idea what is going on. They may see a pattern and be in the process of resolving the issue.

    You did not like my first post. But it is never a good idea to compare to other websites. They may have a very powerful server, right up front you are behind them. Care to give your server specs which might reveal things?
    Also is this Apache or IIS? Version? What version/implementation of PHP? What Server OS? Many varables. Other apps or domains hosted on same server? Then you can get into configuration. As one example I see many have a dedicated Apache but listening on everything which is a big waste of resources.
    I just ran a couple of speed tests (html only) against your site and got everything from 3 to 11 seconds. So also need to look at your connection to the Internet (which includes the router) and how many hops from the backbone.
    Cache plugins do not make you entire site static. PHP code is still being executed. There are still other things executed.
    Again I must state you are pulling content from other locations. The latency alone will add to load time. And seperate locations is new port connections. Many large sites place lower priority on serving pages called from outside their domain. state.gov looks pretty well self-contained.
    And size & # objects is always an issue whether you like it or not. You already gave up visitors on dial-up/slower connectins.

    Does not matter what anyone else is doing. It matters what visitors your site is trying to support.

    Thanks for your quick response, here is my server details:

    Apache version 2.2.14
    PHP version 5.2.11
    MySQL version 5.0.91-community
    Architecture i686
    Operating system linux
    Perl version 5.8.8
    Server Name host
    Lite Speed Installed

    avidppc.com is only one site hosted in this server.

    yes i am understanding that size & objects is always issue, but when i am seeing many large huge content base sites like smashing magazine a great example we have,

    Its Home page total object size is 1376 KB approx 85 images at a time load. and total site load time 1.9 seconds.

    so in this way my avidppc.com site is like half cake of smashing magazine, and take site load time 19 seconds.

    Hello funorang,

    Here is a list of things you need to do:

    • deactivate all plugins
    • download WP Super Cache (or anything like that)
    • if you have the Jetpack plugin, delete it. It causes lots of problems.

    If that didn't work, are you having some errors sometimes that show up on the top of the screen? If so, tell me, and exactly what is written there.

    I had this problem a long time ago and then I put a piece of code on a file and then it went faster. But now I forgot the code.

    I will try my best to help.

    Hi AnJali.n,

    First i was using category icon plugin that is causing slow speed problem,
    i deactivate it and my site speed is bit more fast then i use tools.pingdom.com for checking which element is taking extra load time.

    Using this tool i found some images which is in my stylesheet but not uploaded in server so conitunes server findiing those images and takes load time.

    And a main big thing i use CDN MAXCDN and its increase my site load time unbleavable level

    So U have to check your plugins and activate one by one and check site load speed using tools.pingdom.com

    This should help:
    1. Go to your file manager.
    2. Edit wp-config.php.
    3. On line 2 (after <?php) put the following code:
    set_time_limit(0);

    That should help.

    Thanks i checked your site its intresting, here you can view herarical elements load time:
    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/?url=http://www.eenaducinema.com//&id=5224464

    Your some or 70% element are not loading or 404 not found that's why your site is too much slow. note if any of element you include in your page with valid path setup server always continues find this element on defined path and server continues searching cause slow speed for site loading.

    You can IM through my email abdullah.media[at]gmail.com for any questions.

    ECADF check this:
    http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/?url=http://ecadforum.com/

    your some images are loading from your from server not NET-DNA CDN server that also cause slow speed problem.. and your site first connectivity time take 7.5sec its also very horrible slow speed. you have to check your site by disabling your plugin :D.

    Hi All,

    Our site is slow in loading , 10 - 11 seconds.

    7 or 8 seconds of that is caused by wp-mail.php

    Any idea why wp-mail is taking that much?
