WordPress too fancy with Javascript locking up admin pages? (3 posts)

    Is WordPress getting too complicated with the fancy javascript pages?

    Even if I just hit the SETTINGS link in the admin panel it locks up FireFox (even the new 3b5) and I can't use any other tabs in FireFox until the page has rendered. Same happens when writing a new blog post.
    If I disable Javascript, every admin page loads instantly!

    I'm seriously considering finding another blog application as this is getting very annoying.

    I've even tried the WordPress 'hacks' to enable longer delays in FireFox 2 just to stop it timing out and displaying the STOP SCRIPT / CONTINE buttons. It doesn't time out now, but just locks up all of FireFox until the page has rendered.

    everything is using ajax and jquery right now - and if its not, then it will be by next week.

    actually the major complaint for a lot of wordpress users was that the admin was so outdated compared with some of the other pretty offerings out there.

    personally I would suggest that those people should focus on what they're writing, but hey... that's just me.
