gtmetrix performance tests
because 14sec is stupidly long to load a page
i have ran the test 3 more times and the load times are:
how can i improve this
Apart from Gtmetrix, check your site with
https://www.webpagetest.org/ to see the load times.
Also you can install some queries debug plugin and see what is causing all that, IF it is db related.
Is that a big site? Is everything updated (php, mysql)?
i will look at this, one other question when posting it seem to take for ever to post somthing the blue wheel spins for like 5 seconds before it posts any ideas how i can cut this down too ?
I have the same issues. Although I have good Gmetrix scores, Pagespeed and Webpage test org are poor. The latter even gives a security warning about jscript version. The best my bare-bones site will load in is around 6 secs.
I have followed all the relevant advice here on on the links. DB is fine and settings are as recommended including using the simplified form for forums.
I have three pages on a clean WP install and the only plugins present besides WPFORO are Elementor(free), Elementor header and footer blocks and Envato elements. I am using the minimalist HELLO theme.
I am not using a caching plugin and I have set the cache features in Wpforo.
My host(Bluehost) also hosts my other web site which is an image rich photographic site with a huge amount of images, pages and posts. I also use Elementor there. This easily beats my new site on all metrics testing sites.
Any thoughts you can offer would be appreciated.
