BB Press is Running very slow

  • kemmieg


    I’ve seen a few posts regarding speed issues. I have not seen anything recent for a resolution, everything I’ve seen is from more than 5 years ago except for one (I did post that I could use some help) but there was no resolution.

    It’s taking 9 seconds just to post in the forum. Users are clicking the submit button multiple times because it’s not posting right away.

    What can I do to get things speeded up. I’ve tried deactivating plugins but it’s still slow.

    Thank you

    @kenmieg, were you able to get any resolution with speed issues? curious to know if you had success or abandoned? appreciate it!



    Hi! Should I use BbPress on my site? I have a bit of concern, on the staging site it’s not working. Seems like it does not work with Gutenberg block themes (not sure about that) and it has not been updated for more than 2 years, which is a lot. Is it abandoned? I’d appreciate your thoughts on this.

    If you are using one of new FSE themes, you need a fix to work with bbpress.

    bbp style pack

    once activated, navigate to

    dashboard>settings>bbp style pack, and you should see the first tab called ‘Theme Support’ – if you don’t see this, come back.

    In that tab, select

    Enable Theme Support

    and save

    The forums should then display



    I’m having the same issue. Also pagination settings in WP aren’t working.



    I used to have the same problem with slow posting. About 20 seconds for a new topic.
    Robin w tried to help out and big thanks for all the effort you put in.

    I eventually moved away from bbpress/buddypress to buddyboss instead and I don’t have any performance issues anymore.
