Hi great forum thank you. I bought some of your addons which work well.

The problem I have is that I have one forum with 1300 pages which is very slow.

Small forums are not slow.

Is there anyway to speed up this forum or do I just start a new forum on the same topic?

Its happened twice now when a forum gets to around 1200 pages. I upped my php to 7 but not much quicker

Thanks

Hi @cthgpro,

Forums cannot have pages. It seems you're talking about topics. For any case please follow to these steps:

1. Navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Tools > Debug > Tables Tab and check if you have Database problems click on [Solve database problems] button.

2. Navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features admin page and make sure these options are set correctly:

  • Enable Member Cache: [Yes]
  • Enable Object Cache: [Yes]
  • Enable HTML Cache: [No]
  • Enable Memory Cache: [Yes]

Hi Robert 

Sorry yes one topic is slow.

I have done all the things you suggested I saw them on your other topics and the 1.6 upgrade. There was table problems but they are now resolved says error free but the topic is still slow.

Thanks

I my view, the whole site is slow. The home page takes around 6 second to load and has 93 http requests (GTMETRIX)  and the Forum page takes 6.5 seconds with 140 requests.

I see Yoast plugin running along with wpForo and Yoast is slowing everything down, this is known fact. You could disable the plugin for a while and see how it goes. If the difference is noticable in speed, you could use a lighweight plugin like SEO Framework.

Finally there is a signature of some cache in everypage, coming from your hoster (Endurance page cache). Not sure what this is and what it does, could be a problem.

If this is a regular hosting plan (i mean nothing special) you may need to upgrade. If this is a good plan, you may need to do some tuning to the whole WP site.

Thanks I’ll take a look at yoast. 

Interestingly my front page loads a lot quicker on my end.

Anyway I give it a try.
