Support » Plugin: TablePress » Slow Initial Table Load

    Hello,

    We have a large table (8220 rows x 9 column) and initial webpage loadtime for the table is approx. 10-15 seconds. I’m assuming the delay is due to the vast amount of data, however has anyone had success with using optimization plugins or tips they could share to reduce the load time?

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    Hi,

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    Yes, this is due to the amount of data. Unfortunately, I don’t have tips for making this faster, sorry πŸ™ It simply takes time for the data to be sent to the browser and for the JavaScript code to process it.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hi Tobias,

    Thank you for the confirmation. We can get by with the short delay.

    Additionally this week I’ve learned several site visitors using Internet Explorer/Edge (including myself when tested) are experiencing nearly 1 minute load times for JavaScript features such as the search and filters to become available. In some instances, users are prompted with a warning message; “xxx.com is not responding due to a long-running script”. Is there anything I can do to address this, or just recommend visitors use an alternative browser? Is Internet Explorer historically finicky with WordPress and/or TablePress?

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    Hi Christopher,

    unfortunately, I’m not aware of solutions to speed this up, sorry.
    And yes, recommending other browsers is a good idea here. I wouldn’t say that Internet Explorer is “historically finicky with WordPress and/or TablePress” – but with the web in general πŸ™‚

    Hi,

    Hi,

    I do not know much about plugin programming, but a solution could be in loading only parts of the table just in time as you navigate through it.

    Please consider this as a feature request.

    Thx, Issog

    Hi,

    yes, that’s basically what the plan here is. Unfortunately, this is not easy to implement πŸ™
