Similarities between WordPress Editor and Molassas
Last Update: Jun 17, 2015
Is or has anyone been experiencing WordPress running PAINFULLY SLOW!
It starts out fine, moving back and forth from editing to refreshing and or saving and then back to editing. An then one day you are in WordPress editing and it happens. The Big Slowdown....It starts when you finish a segment of your draft and you go to save it, and you wait,and wait and go fix a cup of tea, come back to your PC and wait, and oh- it moved, I can continue with my draft.
If you pour black strap molasses on a hill in the winter it moves, however Painfully Slow!
So you start writing again and complete a section, refresh and again, The Slowdown, so you wait and wait and surf the web and go back to WordPress editor and wait, then oh- it moved I can start editing again....Does this pattern sound familiar?
So you contact support and they tell you to try a few things, and you do and they tell you they cannot find anything wrong, so you try again and ......It works ok maybe for a day or so and you are like, great they fixed it, and the very next day you power up your PC, go into WP and.... wait for it...... The Big Slowdown! x%$)*)&(^ here we go again....If this sounds familiar please chime in...
Overbooked your T-1 Lines anyone?
I have been having some issues as well but it has been suggested mine are at least partially theme related!
I used to have this problem as well a couple months ago, but I've never been able to go fix a cup of tea and come back to it still moving slow.
Ever since WA has put me on a new server everything has been running fast. Perhaps you could ask them to put you on a new server and see if that helps things any.
About a month ago they did a huge update which was supposed to fix the problem of having too many people on their servers so this shouldn't be an issue any more.
Thanks Scott- I already had the support team do that, so I am not sure what is causing the slow down, again.
Greetings Tom -
Sometimes I need to 'burp' my browser - just close out of it altogether and re-open it. If you've set it up to do so, all the tabs you had open will re-open. With luck, that will solve the problem.
I also use CCleaner - both to remove extraneous temporary files from my computer (including clearing my browser's cache), and to scan for problems in the registry. The latter can throw a hidden wrench in the works.
I typically buy components and assemble my own computers, then ride them into the ground rather than letting them check out on their own schedule due to obsolescence.
Of course, if you do so you've cut off some avenues for support, but I'm OK with that. When something breaks, I wade in to fix it, despite not knowing what I'm doing. Generally my thrashing around means I make the situation worse before finally stumbling on a solution or finding a work around.
Best of luck wrestling with yours!
Hey Dennis- I just cleared the cache and it seems to have helped a bit. Not sure if it is what is causing the issue, however for now its working a bit better..
I've never experience that particular big slowdown. Maybe your computer is getting a little old (they have built-in obsolescence - they start to die after 3 years or so) or your hard drive could be short on space. Sometimes it just needs to reboot. If you Ctrl+Alt+Del and start your Task Manager you can see if your processor (CPU) or memory (RAM) is being over-used. ~Marion
Hi Marion- And thank-you for chiming in, however my PC is brand new and right now much faster than what I am dealing with.

I have not experienced that issue yet. However I'm just getting started, I'm sure my turn is coming.
