I believe you could try out the suggestion from the following forum thread:
Slow to Post
Check the reply of @daniellajos.nl.
Thanks for the reply — however, as mentioned in my opening post we have already tried that solution. It helped, but posting is still extremely slow (from 30-35 seconds to about 10 seconds).
i’ve the same problem with 1,1 miljon posts.
Here it takes 4 to 6 seconds to post. Not very fast.
There a serveral topics about this problem.
It looks like the author’s of Bbpress don’t see that as a big problem.
for them Bbpress posting is fast. (i think they testing on a small forum)
Version 2.6 is supposed to address performance issues, but there is no indication as to when it will be released. At this point, I am considering running the alpha version in a live environment just to increase performance.
i use Alpha 2.6 and it is not much faster than 2.5.
Still very slow.
Are you running BuddyPress, too? If so, have you tried disabling BuddyPress to see if that speeds up the posting process?
Yes i use buddypress and that is not the problem
i’ve tried all other plugins but iám sure the problem is that bbpress is slow with big tables
I hope you saw that we released bbPress 2.6 beta last night 🙂
There are significant performance increases with 2.6, wordpress.org/support is now running 2.6 alpha, we’ll update it shortly to 2.6 beta.
We’ve got further performance enhancements to come, one that I think you may be running into is the time it takes to post a reply, one change that was merged last night and is now being used here on bbPress.org significantly imporoves that time for adding new replies, another in the works for the same issue is to optimize how subscribers are notified of a new reply in a topic, currently most of that wait period you’re experiencing I would think is coming from topics that have high number of subscribers.
Anyway, I hope this is better news for you 🙂
p.s. WordPress dot org support has ~2.5 million topics and 6 million replies
Can i use the beta2.6 safely on my live forum?
Per the announcement post:
If you’re going to test 2.6 on a live site, maybe don’t just yet. It runs a database upgrade routine to migrate favorites & subscriptions from usermeta to postmeta, and for large forums that may take a while or possibly lock things up for a bit.
So I’d suggest waiting until we hit beta 2, by then we should be able to better analyse how the upgrade routing has worked for some larger sites, mainly wordpress.org.
This is great news. I can’t wait to see these performance improvements and hope 2.6 moves swiftly through beta.
ok have you any idea when release beta 2?
@reedy – If your install is experiencing slowness issues, I’d *love* it if there were a way for you to try the 2.6 beta. You are exactly the best person to be the most helpful, and confirm that our improvements actually make the same differences for others that we are seeing for ourselves.
Is there a way I can help you safely give it a try?
@johnjamesjacoby I’m OK with giving it a try, as long as there is some support around if anything goes wrong!
i already use 2.6 alpha.
works 2.6 beta1 faster than 2.6 alpha?
i’ve do the upgrade and the fix from 2.6 alpha to 2.6 beta1.
i see no realy performancechange
@reedy I’m here if you need help. Can also use the
#bbpress channel in WordPress’s Slack instance.
@senatorman The improvements here on bbPress.org were not-insignificant.
We have 25k topics, 100k replies, and many more in spam/trash/drafts/revisions, amounting to around 180k total posts.
It’s not a huge-huge install, but not exactly small either.
p.s. @reedy, to get Slack up and running to join the #bbPress channel sign up here:
