Support » Fixing WordPress » v5.8.3 Categories Slow to Display

  • Hi

    This is my configuration:
    Wordpress 5.8.3
    No plugin
    Theme : twenty twenty-one
    Environment: local / Apache 2.4.46 / Php 7.4.9 / MySQL 5.7.31

    For information, i have more than 6000 categories.

    My problem is the categories show slow to display in edit post with new editor gutenberg and once all is charged, no categories are selected.

    In Webtools, there is the REST API webservice which called many times :
    /wp-json/wp/v2/categories?per_page=100&orderby=name&order=asc&_fields=id%2Cname%2Cparent&_locale=user

    Each call takes 600 ms.

    This is a screenshot : https://www.pocomdesign.com/gif/screenshot_category_load.jpg

    Please can someone help me to speed up things and automatically select right categories

    Thanks

    Laetitia

  • Depending on your hosting providers configuration it would take a while for 6000 categories to load. In my experience most sites have 150 categories at most. I would suggest cleaning up the categories and checking with your host about the speed of the database connection.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I don’t have hosting provider because m’y website is in local on my computer.

    for categories, there are many because the site is a comic book site. Each comic author is a category in order to display his list of comics.

    I don’t choose this architecture.

    Anyway, do you have an idea to resolve this problèm ?

    Thanks a lot
