Site Load Time (6 posts)

    For some reason my site is loading extremely slowly.

    I've noticed that it loads up initially at a slow speed and then it loads all the graphics and images very quickly.

    I thought to myself maybe it's taking its time loading scripts or something like that, but I can't really figure it out.

    I went to dr.mike's blogspace and also to andrea's site, and both of them load in no time. But for some reason everytime I load up my site it goes slowly. for people that want to test it out.

    I've seen at least three or four posts on hosting forums about servage being slow over the last two weeks.


    Is it just the wpmu site or are other sites on your account slow as well? I ask because A Small Orange is usually known for having quality hardware and I believe they are located in the Atlanta NAP (if memory serves) so I doubt it's a connectivity or bandwidth issue.

    yes but ovidiu, the site is slow even when you're not on the homepage.

    Try visiting my demo blog ( and logging in with username demo and password demo.

    Despite my using a much quicker backend interface it's loading incredibly slowly.

    Try navigating on any of the blogs ( or and you'll see what I'm talking about. It's just not moving like it should.

    Andrew, I'm using ASO and went there because I had heard good things. The BBPress forums that I've got installed seem to load in no time ( but anything WPMU based is moving slowly.

    the forums are a lot smaller so your response tiems seem normal to me...
