    I recently was adding a new product to my cart and I had created a new variation. Once I did that, all hell broke loose.

    Website started taking 40 seconds just to load or not even load at all.

    I went forward and removed everything that i inputed and also a few other items that were not being used and still there was a very big lag load issue. I had thought it was Dreamhost so i went and spoke with them and they said that my site was causing it.

    I went and installed WP Tuner and it looks like my e commerce plugin seems to be taking 35-40 seconds to load. And when i dove a little deeper, it seems as though my variations is the culprit. I have tried deleting and re issuing of the variations and nothing changed.

    I am no expert. I am actually just a green horn when it comes to these things.

    Anyone have any experience in dealing with this. Right now my only fix is to have 5-10 items which cause my site to load for 5-10 seconds.



    Also. Dream Host Guy said that i possibly would need to clear my theme cache and do a flush. but then again, I don’t know how. I tried to search for that button but to of no avail. Any help will be appreciated.

    How many variations (groups, and variations per group) are you creating per product?

    Not many about 4 categories. Honestly everything was working fine until one day I was adding in a new product with new variations and for some reason my website lagged out and after that, I started having the problems. Now everything takes 20 seconds to load. It takes each item a second to load.

    Interesting. I’d be happy to take a look if you want to email me admin credentials at justinsainton at gmail dot com. This generally occurs when you are on a shared host with low memory limits and create many products that have many variations. For better or worse (mostly worse, in hindsight), a custom post is created for each variation combination. For example, if you have 3 variation groups with 10 options each, that’s 1,000 post entries in the database, per post. Pretty insane.

    Hi Barry,

    Thanks for shooting me an email. You’re running WordPress 2.9 and WPeC You need to update your software.
