Support » Plugin: Facebook » FB plugin v1.1 is still slow, even with cURL enabled

  • Resolved hieu.nguyen


    In my local environment (XAMPP, Windows 7), even with cURL enabled, this plugin when activated, still makes my site super slow.

    Each action (add new post, view all post etc.) takes minutes to complete.

    Is this bug fixed with this new release?

    Publishing a new post may need to submit multiple requests depending on the number of mentions, post to profile, and post to page configurations. The latest version of the plugin includes the latest version of the Facebook PHP SDK, which should help speed up the process.

    What is the specific issue with page speed when viewing all posts? How many social plugins are you displaying across how many posts on the page? Plugin version 1.1 loads the PHP JavaScript SDK asynchronously, which should speed up the initial page load. Comment counts now happen outside of an iframe, also speeding up rendering.

    Thank you for your quick response 🙂

    I just double-checked with my computer at home. Only Add New Post is a bit slow. View All Posts is fine.

    The performance was much better than my computer at work (takes around 10-15 seconds for Add New Post to load, while it was minutes before). I guess this is because of slow connection to FB server at my workplace.

    I will further monitor the situation and let you know.

    Thank again,

    Thanks for checking. Posts to Facebook occur over HTTPS. Running updates to your operating system or server SSL/TLS software may speed up connections to Facebook.
