Love the upgrade of the theme – however, it has now caused my website to slow down dramatically. Can anyone see what is causing it?? It is found at:
Thanks for getting back – have just upgraded – still very slow. It’s either the server I use, or a plugin… I guess. Any thoughts appreciated, as I’m trying out things like the Yslow yahoo extension for Safarri to analyse the site, and I can’t make any sense from it (not being any kind of expert).
No problem, I’ve just done a test with Pingdom and you currently have a 11 second wait time from your server.
One thing that maybe worth trying is removing the following line from the DynamiX/functions.php page.
require NV_FILES .'/adm/inc/note-admin.php';
And if you have Flickr enabled, try disabling that to see if it has an affect .
I removed the code, and no effect – hopefully it wasn’t important… I guess you’re the one who’d know 😉
I then removed my flickr id from the DynamiX Theme Options section… and the website suddenly sped up. Shame, as I reckon that would have been a really nice feature – it’s a pain using plugins to link through to the flickr site. I take it that it works ok with other people’s flickr account id’s?
Thanks again for the help.
Yep, I can confirm that loads a lot faster! No worries, I’ll get on the case of seeing why the API is taking so long to load the data in. 🙂
The part you removed was for admin update notification of theme updates. You can place this back in now.
Craig, what’s your URL and are you using Flickr – I can guarantee it’s not the Theme itself ( unless you have flickr enabled it seems ), it scores extremely well for page load speed.
@hep2djive – I’ve tested your site and the page load is still scoring very high – http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/cGjqRS/http://www.lewisvillenoonrotary.org
The way to improve further is down to your server settings.
Here is the link to the file:
Unzip and replace:
DynamiX/lib/adm/functions/core.php ( make a backup of it first ).
Let me know how it goes.
Initially it looks like it’s working, though I haven’t added any flickr sets via the DynamX interface. I reckon it’s fixed… excellent work – thank you. Looking forward to when you will be able to add single flickr photos as well as sets – then my quest for easy blog updating will be complete 😉
