Even with features disabled like "Attempt to notify any Weblogs,"it takes forever to post with 1.5--sometimes five minutes or even longer. Help!
Odds and ends:
--The problem seems worse with longer posts. Not sure if links in the posts are a factor.
--My blog may be as long as 900,000 words, including an import from Blogger. I wonder if the size could be a factor, though I see I'm not the only one with problems. Anyone else have a long blog and the same delays? Maybe the testing of new builds should be done especially with users like us in mind. If WordPress will suffice for us, it will for anyone. Are any developers working on the publishing-speed problem?
--1and1.com is adamant that nothing screwy is going on with MYSQL or anything else at its end.
--The problem is only with the actual publishing. "Save" and "Save and continue editing" both work great--almost no delays whatsoever.
--Blog is at http://www.teleread.org/blog/index.php.
Any troubleshooters care to take an interest in this case?
Other than the above and a problem ordering my categories and maybe another detail or so, I'm very happy I made this long-overdue switch to WordPress.
