Slow Loading Time

Anyone else notice how slow things have been to load on the front page over the past week or so? It’s driving me nuts. I thought it was the Etsy widget, so I removed that. But then it still loaded slowly AND the far right sidebar still looked wrong. So now I’ll remove the bookreading widget. If I still have problems after that I may temporarily switch themes and see if it’s a coding issue with the theme (which I don’t think it would be since I’ve been using it with no problems for the past several months).

But if y’all will be patient – I AM trying to find a resolution.

Update a few minutes later: OH SNAP! I think I lost my book widget! If that’s true I’ll be royally ticked. I dragged it out of the sidebar into the list of widgets and it just disappeared completely. It’s not showing up in the widget list and I can’t get it to come back. If that’s how it works in the new WP 2.5 then that’s a STUPID STUPID change they made.

  1. Your page only loads slowly for me in IE at work. And it has for months.

    At home using Firefox it loads fine and fast.

  2. Yeah, see I only started using IE a couple weeks ago – I was using Opera before that and it always loaded normally. Well, as much as I love my current theme, I may have to look for a new one if this one causes problems with load time in IE, which is the browser 75% of my visitors use.

  3. That would be great – I have IE at both home and work, and I have to admit that the slow loading time has me visiting much less frequently… prob once every couple of days.
