Support » Fixing WordPress » Updating A Page In Admin Is Very Slow

  • Hi All,

    I am getting really frustrated with the backend of my wordpress. I have created a site with about 500 pages of content and now I am going back through all the pages to edit for SEO, and the pages are taking literally 1-2mins to actually update.

    Does anyone have a solution to fix… I only have 3 plugins installed, using the thesis theme!

    Please help!

  • Hi,

    Check with these options:

    – Upgrade your wordpress to the latest version
    – Disable all unwanted plugins and remove unwanted theme
    – Also update your hosting service provider to restart MySQL and http service.

    Well, 500 pages is a lot of content. Have you tried using a caching plugin or compression plugin?

    I have a site with the same issue. It has over 800 pages. I have read elsewhere that WP has issues with lots of pages (not posts). Has something to do with rewriting of the permalink structure.

    I’m on a machine with a ridiculous amount of memory and processors, so hardware is not the issue. It only effects the modification of a page (whether it be in Quick Edit, moving to trash, or normal edit mode).

    If I try to perform any of those actions in bulk (more than maybe 4 pages) I would end up with a blank white screen. I just recently extended the PHP memory to 200 from 64 and the timeout to 180s and now the processes do complete without the white screen, but it takes many 10’s of minutes for things to happen. Does anyone have any ideas?

    P.S. I’ve also run WP-DBManager’s db optimize and repair to no improvement.

    It’s all about permalinks.

    This is a nice post explaining whole issue:

    All you need is to change permalink structure from /%postname%/
    to /%post_id%/%postname%/ and suddently site runs as fast as when you started it.
