BBpress extremely slow performance issues (2 posts)

    I am developing a forum currently, relatively small, maybe 14 different forums with a limited number of topics. It is a new build so there are next to no responses. My issue is that the loading time for the forum page is extremely slow, almost up to 25 seconds. The rest of the site functions fine, but the forums are very sluggish. I have researched and tried to find plugins that are slowing the site down but haven't found much that is related to the forums. I am in no way a coder, although I am pretty confident in my computer skills. Any thoughts?

    How many records is there actually in the wp_postmeta table? bbPress is renowned to use JOIN on the postmeta table which is slow because the meta_value column is not indexed.
