    Hello
    Nice plugin, simple and reliable. But there is a problem with image uploading. It so slow, last time I have waiting 20 minutes… Sometimes upload 1,2 for 15 minutes, if there is more than 2-3 ot gets slower… My hosting is not the problem. I have no problem with my other websites on different platforms. It is not my internet connection either.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi, there was a similar thread on the forum but i cannot seem to find it right now, either way the file upload speed depends mainly on the server upload connection (which is most of the time significantly slower than the download).

    The WPJB file uploader sends the data via a normal HTTP Post request, so it is basically the same as when submitting a form with a lot of data, that means the upload time will usually depend on how fast the server can receive the request. and minimum time is spent on processing it with PHP.

    You can paste here a link to a page with your [adverts_add] i will check what is the upload time being spent on.

    Also, how fast is the same file uploaded when you try adding it to the Media Library from wp-admin panel?

    Also, the file upload might be slow to process the images (generate thumbnails) once they are uploaded, but it will be the easiest to tell if this is causing a problem if you share the [adverts_add] URL.

    You can also check with your hosting support if it has imagick support enabled, if not then you can ask them to enable it, this should help with generating thumbnails faster and to have them in a better quality.

    I did checked, hosting sayd there is no problem. But after another plgin that I installed later with same problem, I also assume it is really from the hosting 🙁

    Thanks for the but the page does not load for me at all, it loads for a while and then Chrome only shows an ERR_TIMED_OUT error.

    If you are having the same problem with another plugin then most likely it would be best to set up a trial account with other hosting company and see if you are having the same problem there

    I am moving the website to a different hosting

    Good day, Can someone please help me.
    I am having some problems with the WordPress crunching all my images, which really slows down the process of uploading images. Is there any way of removing the Flash Uploader. I have already added the following code to all the function.php files in my Cpanel:

    add_filter( ‘flash_uploader’, create_function( ‘$a’, “return null;” ), 1 );

    as well as

    add_filter( ‘flash_uploader’, create_function( ‘$a’, “return false;” ), 1 );

    I have also changed the media settings Image sizes all to 0.

    Nothing seems to be working it keeps crunching the images when I upload it.
    If anyone can help I will really appreciate it as this is driving me crazy now.

    The internet connection speed is perfect 100mb per sec
    file size and resolution of the images are good
    Hosting server is perfect as the other sites have no issues at all.
    Also not the plugins as I have already checked them as well.

    Hi,
    1. most likely the images are not being crunched by the flash uploader but rather by the WordPress itself once the images are uploaded (the WP needs to generate thumbnails).

    You can stop WordPress from doing so as explained here https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-prevent-wordpress-from-generating-image-sizes/

    2. this seems like a question related to WordPress itself, not WPAdverts so it might be better to post your question in the general WordPress forum https://wordpress.org/support/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting/
