Ok so i have recently updated my theme on wordpress and have encountered a HUGE server load!
My site was always at a regular load nothing to be worried about but then around the time i updated the theme with minor modifications in aesthetics the load went off the charts.
All that was done was that categories were added to my homepage, a tag cloud, background color, new logo and thats it!
I have been looking around for solutions on this forum and thought it may have been an issue with "cache" so i installed the super-cache plugin and that did not affect it in any positive way.
Bare in mind nothing at all on my site had changed except for the looks and the theme was modified by the same person who created it so it was done professionally and correctly!
As the theme was implemented i did not change the way i work in terms of posts.
I would love to get as much help as possible and if anyone needs my website if love to send it your way!
I wanted to just know what may cause this type of issue. My server load was averaging around 30 to 40.
Thank you again!
