    Hi there,

    Using my new wordpress website, not using a hefty theme or anything, but it's taking a significant amount of time to open.

    I've googled the issue and it says it's potentially a plugin issue. Currently I've got no plugin's installed. Is there anything else that could be causing the issue?

    You could just have a crappy host.

    Look at your wp-config.php

    Add this...

    define('FS_CHMOD_DIR', (0755 & ~ umask()));
    define('FS_CHMOD_FILE', (0644 & ~ umask()));
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
    define('WP_CACHE', true);

    Look into plugins that provide cashe and see if you are luck enough to have ACP on the server get a plugin that will use such as "WP Super Cache".

    Also check for large images in your page/post and theme and header

    Thanks for responding.

    I am using 123 reg as the host. They have said there's no current issues with their service, but did advise that WordPress works better on Linux servers (where their's are Windows based).

    Should I add that to the config.phb anywhere in particular, or can it go at the bottom?

    I've installed WP Super Cache, but that itself is creating issues. Two popups have come up the first being: Fancy permalinks are disabled.

    Please enable it first, then re-attempt to enabling enhanced disk mode.

    However going into this there is no option to enable it.

    Also have:

    File and directory creation tests failed

    Clicking into the task brings up the following:

    Could not mkdir: \\web-123win\winpackage22\photographerfilm.co.uk\www.photographerfilm.co.uk\web\content\Site/wp-content/cache\test_dir

    No idea what that means or what to do.

    Thanks

    For "Could not mkdir: " follow the path in your FTP and make it your self.

    wp-content/cache/test_dir

    Yes a Linux system would be a lot better, try Heartinternet.com for cheap UK WP hosting.

    For your wp-content, I would add it at the top after the <?php
