Support » Fixing WordPress » Editing Posts..Browser hangs!! REALLY Annoying!!!

  • ok this is killing me…I created a blog for a client….but anytime a post is edited and then U hit submit..the browser just goes and goes ..and I must hit stop and refresh everytime I change a post..well the client is telling me he is done and WordPress sucks..and so now I am tasked with posting his blogs from email..THIS SUX….I have been trying to tell him that WordPress is the ONE but I can’t back it up right frustrating…. I thought it might be Tiny MCE but I changed to WYSI…but it still hangs..I am using WP1.52 and have tried Firefox and IE….

    any one have this problems or have any suggestion?!!! I’m still trolling the forums looking….8 (

  • Maybe you can turn off the pinging/tagging. Those things can make it SEEM like the browser/wordpress is hung when you’re editing/saving posts.

    How many update services are you pinging ?

    OK excuse my total ignorance here but where are these functions? and how and why do I need to set them….. sorry for the Newb out… I see the “allow pings” checkbox when I post…. Podz…sorry I have no can I check that?


    I posted a similar question a week ago with no responses. I had no idea that the number of update services could have been the issue. I’m pinging about 70 and it takes perhaps 3-5 minutes every time I publish, or save an already published post. When I just save and edit, it’s done in 15 seconds.

    Thanks for the answer!!! I’ll be testing this theory out. Makes waiting worth it since the pings are important to me.

    SEVENTY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That’s the problem, not WP !

    How Do I check this Podz?

    The guy with 70 is different from the original poster (I think).

    I am the orginal poster..I am clueless…I don’t have seventy update services…I don’t know what they are…HELP my post got hijacked!!!

    First – has the other person added plugins ?
    Second – TinyMCE is in 2.0 ?

    You could upgrade if indeed you are using 1.5.2

    What happens if he uses another browser ?

    Do YOU see this happening ?

    HE has not added any plugins himself….

    I have been usng Tiny MCE for 1.5.2 for a while I have it off now…and am using WYSI

    My host hasn’t set up the 2.0 upgrade path yet..and I am weary of doing it manually….

    we have tried this on FF and IE for Mac & well as safari

    I see all this happening..when I hit submit I open the blog page in a new tab….and keep hitting refresh till I see the changes take…..then hit stop on the submit page ..then refresh to continue editing….. Thats my work around….. 8 (

    could plugins that are installed but deactivated cause any problems?

    well I deactivated ALL plugins and it stills hangs badly….. 8 (

    anybody have any clues?

    BTW I went back to Tiny MCE because the WYSI one wasn’t playing nice with my Photo Album

    Just Refreshing the topic in hopes of an answer 8 )
