Slow comments posting (5 posts)

    Does anyone else have trouble with the speed of posting comments on their wordpress site? I am on a very fast connection and it takes avery long time for me, so on slow connections it must take an eternity.

    Does anyone know any way to remedy this situation?

    My site is http://www.jeffisacat.co.uk/wordpress if you want to see how slow it is.

    I was contemplating moving my comments section to haloscan but I'm not sure if I can import previous comments to haloscan from wordpress, or if there is a way of creating a 'cut off' date so that after the last comment in wordpress I can then use haloscan - is this even possible?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Anti-spam plugins or the size of your blacklist or moderation list may be affecting the speed of your comments. Check those.

    As for the speed of your site in general, go to http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/ and plug your blog URL in there for tons of useful suggestions.

    Here's a quick quote from the results that I saw for your site:

    "Warning! The total size of this page is 1018796 bytes, which will load in 203.24 seconds on a 56Kbps modem. ... Pages over 100K exceed most attention thresholds at 56Kbps, even with feedback."

    Thanks for that link to analyze my site. Although I'm not sure what to do with some of the results, it was good to see. It said something about making some images .png ... where can I go to learn how to do that?

    Thanks again!

    Recent image editing apps like Photoshop and GIMP (free) can convert graphics into PNG format. PNG is generally smaller and looks better, but can sometimes be twice as large as your current format too. To convert all of your graphics to PNG, use an image editing app and save them as PNG (make sure the resulting filesize is smaller before you continue, because that's what you're trying to accomplish). Then, enter you theme and find out where the images are called and enter the new filenames.
