bbpress forum extremely slow

  • Cal23


    I have created a forum through bbpress for an existing website and am experiencing 20-40 second page load times for only the forum pages, the rest of the site works fine. There are no posts yet, there are 14 forums with maybe 2-3 topics per forum. I have tried using caching plugins and programs like benchmark and profiler to determine what is slowing it down, but can’t find anything. I am not really familiar with code, but can do some basic things.

    Any ideas on how to speed it up?

    Can only suggest you try the following to see if they are causing issues

    Check other plugins

    Check that no other plugins are affecting this.

    Turn off all other plugins, and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem is resolved, add back one at a time to see which is causing the conflict.

    Check themes

    If plugins are not the cause, then it may be a theme issue. Switch to a default theme, such as twentytwelve, and test.
