bbPress loading about 6X slower than rest of site…
Hey guys –
My bbPress installation is noticeably slower than the rest of my WordPress site. I have WordPress configured in a multi-site install with bbPress running in a daughter blog. Any time you click a page within the bbPress blog, it takes from 4-7 seconds to begin loading. Once loading begins it is fast. Elsewhere on my site there is no such delay and the pages load essentially immediately.
I have talked to my host and they’re claiming the issue is with the bbPress MySQL queries simply being slow. I have about 75k posts on my board software, which is a recent import from another format.
Can anyone help me speed this up for my users? Is there an optimization I should do? Should I limit returned topics per page? (I currently am returning 20 per page).
Here’s the site: itinerantangler.com. Everything is in WordPress now, so you can compare one section of the site versus the Board area, which is all bbPress.
