    I’ve been using WordPress Hit Counter Version 2.6 for some time and have really liked it. However over the past few days my WordPress sites have slowed to a crawl with pages taking 60+ seconds to load. I found WordPress Hit Counter Version 2.6 to be the culprit.

    When checking the MYSQL processes there were a list of processes with a “sleep” command. Every time a page was requested MYSQL would sleep for 60 seconds before serving the page.

    Deactivating the WordPress Hit Counter immediately fixed the problem! Pages load in 1 second rather than 61 seconds with the counter.

    Please find a fix for this as I really like the counter.

    I should add that I had the counter installed on 6 separate WordPress websites and all were affected the same. Each sites speed returned to normal as the counter was removed.

    I really hope this gets fixed/updated so I can continue using it. Every other counter I tried only lets me use their default designs. But I have my own counter image designs I want to use.

    Also would like to add that My problem was also solved after de-activating the plugin. I can’t even re-activate now though for some reason. Not that I would want to till a fix gets found.

    I had the same problem with it.

    Don’t update the plugin! That’s what corrupts it. Read more info on it here.

    Thanks for the link TJ Post, now Its working on my site again.
