I have cleared my cache and tried logging out and back into WordPress and it is still super slow.
Is anyone else having the same issue?

It was fine when I was on earlier today. Hope you get sorted Jenny
Bux

It seems to be better now.

Faith …

Yes I had a 401 error yesterday said that the server was not responding due to trouble with servers.whatever that means. Hope it's not slow tonight . I need to add more content.

Hi Dennis,
It seems to be better now. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

No issues here, however if your situation persists, please reach out to site support
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

I haven't experienced it as of yet. Did you contact Site Support. They will be able to help you.

I am wonder about your theme. The reason why I say that is because sometimes the themes can cause your site to run slow.

When I was in WA before, I have a theme that was giving me trouble once I changed themes everything was okay. And it was Site Support that told me about the theme.

I would contact Site Support and put a ticket in. Explain what is happening and they should be able to tell you.

So I hope this helps you out. If you don't mind let know what happens.

Best wishes on your journey your endeavors and much success in your business

This is not a theme issue, as I have other sites using the same theme and there are no issues with loading on those sites.

It pretty much boils down to server equipment as far as I can tell. Especially if other are dealing with the same issue and some are not.

I appreciate your thoughts, but I have experience having problems with the themes.

I had belong to WA before all the new changes. There was an issue with the theme. Site Support is the ones that told me that.

I am just going by what I had experienced.

Mary

Mary,

I fully understand. I have also experienced problems with a theme that I actually pay for on a yearly basis.

Frustrating, because the theme developers are located in India, and they rarely admit to a theme error on their part, if ever.

After explaining the issues, they will clear up after a few days, and just tell me to clear my cache and, yes, the issues are gone after they clear them up.

Hi Mary,
It's definitely not a theme issue, as I have been using the same theme without problems for a long time (GeneratePress Pro). Usually, it has been very fast but as of yesterday and today, the WordPress Dashboard is super slow.
Thanks for your thoughts.

Well then, contact Site Support and let them check it out to see what the problem is.

That would be the best bet then.

Mary

Okay no worries

Mary

Mine isn't slow, but perhaps that is because I log in with my regular email address instead of into WP directly, Jenny! I hope you get some helpful answers!

Jeff

Thanks, Jeff.

You're very welcome, Jenny!

Jeff

Mine is not slow, either.
Maybe you check your plugins for any issues.

No problems on mobile. It's fast on mobile via my iPhone and iPad Pro. I was able to type few words pretty fast. have not yet opened WP on my desktop MacBook Pro. I updated all my plugins, no problems. Let me try desktop to see if I can compare mobile vs desktop. I know WA updates more focused on mobile user experience.

I just tried my MacBook Pro so far no problems. Not slow its fast. What I did was update all plug ins then log out and reboot my laptop then back in SiteManager and everything looks 👍 to me.

Hi, Brenda

I'm having the same problem on my iPhone with both WiFi and cellular.
Typing speed in the Block Editor is ok. Saving drafts and previews are slow on my end.

Frank

Interesting. Saving a draft is no problem for me. I am able to see the previews. I use the Safari browser. I have not checked Google Chrome. Sometimes you have to update Google Chrome more often than other browsers. Hopefully, those issues will be resolved.

Yeah, it is interesting

I tried Chrome, Safari, and Edge. When you close and reopen Chrome it should automatically update to the latest version.

It might also vary depending on your location.

Hope SiteSupport has some answers for you.

I've been meaning to change the way some of the graphics load on my website.

This is a good opportunity to do it and it'll probably help. It can't hurt!😎

Horribly slow...........2 minutes or more for a page to load. Hard to make updates with that situation.

Yes it’s frustrating!
Hopefully it resolves soon.

Hi, Jenny

I am having the same problem with the WordPress dashboard today. I tried a host of possible solutions, unsuccessfully.

In the block editor, saving a draft and showing a preview are taking quite a while, too.

How is your website loading? I'm getting intermittent "unable to reach the server" errors.

Yes same here Frank.
I noticed it was slow yesterday as well.
Not sure if it has something to do with all the WA updates or maybe a plugin that was updated.
Either way it’s frustrating.

Hi, Jenny

I didn't update any plugins and I noticed it yesterday, too.

I put a ticket into Site Support and they are looking into it. I'll keep you updated with any new info.

It has to be a server problem at WA.

I have several websites using the same theme and much the same plugins. Many of those sites are loading pages normally.

Site support tells me they don't see a problem on their end, so what now?

It's not the Internet per se, nor is it my computer equipment that I use. I can vouch for that.

I agree, Eric, about it being a server problem, but who knows? I'm on the latest PHP 7.4 (new) server, so it's not that.

We have to be patient. I think that Site Support is working on this problem and all the others in the background.


I use the GeneratePress Pro theme, which is super fast, and WP Rocket (with the WA cache turned off).

I just redrew my site logo and made it smaller. I'll probably do the same with my header.

I am considering signing up for Ezoic, but am a little hesitant about it because of having to change nameservers and how it will affect my speed.

And in an adjacent topics, I just added the WP Rocket affiliate program to the list of affiliate programs here on WA!

Great question Jenny thank you, I appreciate everyone's insights! And bookmarked for future reference.

Hey Jenny,

Just to add to what Carson and Dale said (Hahahaha!! you just know someone's gonna say in a minute, "Just to add to what Partha, Carson, and Dale said"), regardless of what all the Ezoic help tutorials say, WP Rocket and the Ezoic plugin are NOT compatible.

You will told they are, but they're not.

WP Rocket basically stops working as soon as the plugin is installed.

I know it's obviously about traffic and playing the waiting game, but I have now removed Ezoic from the final site I had it on - all my sites now have Mediavine or Adthrive.

I will admit that the difference between Adsense and Mediavine/Adthrive is literally astronomical.

This is why many people try to get onto Ezoic as soon as possible.

I always used their tiered premium service, which was okay, but their free alternatives seem to leave a lot to be desired.

To me, it's far more hassle than it's worth.

Partha

Thank you Partha for sharing your experience with Ezoic.
It has given me a lot to think about.
I will likely hold off for now and wait until I have reached the traffic required for better ad sites like Mediavine. Which will likely take a long time! LOL!

For now, I'll just keep plugging away and writing content.
Thanks again.

Hi Jenny,

Just following up with what Dale mentioned, changing the namer servers to run Ezoic ads would mean that you are giving away control of your website to a an ad agency. Also, you would don't be able to use Wealthy Affiliate hosting as our hosting platform requires your DNS pointed at our servers.

The "plugin" version of Ezoic ads will slow your site down significantly, so please consider that doing so could drastically impact your rankings in a negative way. Also, the user experience when being subjected to ads all over the page will be impacted negatively too, and this is another metric that Google looks at when ranking.

In terms of the WP Rocket plugin, the only thing you would need from that plugins is the "Lazy Load" capability. No other settings should be turned on as our SiteSpeed Platform takes care of caching and running your site as quickly as possible.

I hope this helps!

Carson

Thank you so much Carson.
You raise some valid points.
This is why I’m hesitant, as I don’t want my speed to drop significantly or my rankings.

You can use the Ezoic WordPress plugin if you don't want to change your namservers :)

If you do go down the route of nameservers, Ezoic actually have caching & CDN apps etc that you can utilize.

Thanks for your response Dale.

WordPress is extremely slow for me, there seems to be a delay when I type. It's really frustrating, as I'm trying to edit a post, and it's taking forever!

Is anyone else

I was curious, so I just went into one of my sites and added a few lines to a draft post.

Absolutely no problems. Speed was fine. Now that could be because:

1. It's a local issue.
2, It was a problem that has since been fixed.
3. It's an issue with the block editor (which I don't use).

Not much help, I know. Just reporting my personal experience.

Thanks Phil, I am using the block editor.

Hi Jenny,

I'm not in WordPress right now but I will be soon. I just finished a post in MS Word and will be adding it to WordPress soon. Of course, I have about 100 windows open so that might affect my performance also. I will close some of the windows.

Thanks, Jenny,

Barbara

Thanks Barbara.

Hi Jenny,

I did go into WordPress and it seemed fine, even with all my windows open. Did yours start working ok?

Barbara

Not yet Barbara.

Hi Jenny,

That is so awful when that happens! Did you contact Site Support?
I hope they can help you out here! Did the slowness start just after doing a particular action? Are you writing a new post or modifying an original? Also, another thing to check would be what else is also running on your PC. You might have some real pig background process running that you might not even want.

Anyway, just some things to look at. I know the feeling of horrible slowness when trying to get stuff done!

Barbara

Hi Barbara,
I’ll check when I have time on Monday.
Thanks so much for your helpful suggestions.
Enjoy your weekend.

You too, Jenny!

Barbara

We do not have an issue. Is this something that just recently happened. If it is a recent happening. since you are typing in WordPress, I would contact Site support, Let them know of the speed issue. We have done that a few times and they make adjustments which could be a server.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/websites/support

Yes just recently in the last few days.
Thanks for your suggestion.

You are welcome.

I will give that a try as I'm having the same problem.

Jenny28,

I had a slow lag yesterday, but it subsided.

Glad yours is working well.

Right now, mine seems to be working okay, Jenny!
