Support » Fixing WordPress » Pages are very slow, but posts are fast?

  • I have quite a few number of pages in my WordPress install. Probably somewhere in the realm of 500.

    Lately, editing or creating new “pages” is taking upwards of 30 seconds to a minute or two.

    Editing or creating new “posts” are extremely fast still, so I’m guessing these two functions are treated entirely differently in WordPress.

    Has anyone else encountered this issue?

  • Try this plugin:

    edit- and quit dredging up old posts asking if this has been fixed yet? You have an answer.

    Wp-Cache does not help in the editing or creation of “pages.” It may help after a page is created, but that’s not my problem here.

    Wp-Cache is NOT the answer.

    Ok, that’s fine, then wait patiently for an answer – quit resurrecting posts!

    Sorry, feel free to consolidate these postings, since they all refer I believe to the same thing. I’m going to reply to one more post that has the most information, and then I’ll be waiting patiently. Seems no one has the answer to this problem.

    Hi Kineda,
    I have exactly the same issue with WordPress 2.3, and about 3000 pages in the DB.

    Due to the configuration of my ISP, I end up with:
    “Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded” errors.

    But no idea how to fix this issue.

    Hoping to resurrect the thread after 10 months of silence 🙂

    Sounds like a database issue to me. I’m not that familiar with mySQL, but the behavior you’re getting would be expected if the table you’re writing to when you created a page had a problem, and the table you’re writing to when you created a post were a different table. Contact your web host, explain the situation, and ask if they can check the database performance and perhaps increase the size of the table.

    You’ll have to ask somebody more familiar with the WordPress mySQL schema which table would be involved. I don’t know.

    I am having the same problem… I have pinpointed the problem with help of someone yet there seems to be no solution at this point.. I have over 1000 static pages and same dilemma…. The problem is very simple; every page generates a rewrite rule. which casuse mysql to spike up… We all have to contact the developers to fix this problem!!!

    I am plagued with this issue as well. If there is a fix I would love to know about it. The key example is the difference between loading the admin manage posts and manage pages links. Posts is snappy, and pages takes far longer.
