Is anybody else experiencing this problem? I recently upgraded to Wordpress 3.8 and the dashboard is slow as molasses! I swear, it easily takes me anywhere from 10 to 20 seconds to pull up my list of pages or about the same time to start and save a new post. Sometimes though, it will just randomly decide to load on time. More often than not, I get an error like:
It's literally timing out. I checked with my host and everything is good as far as speed. I've also disabled literally every plugin with the exception of the ones needed to operate (Yoast and a few highly reputable ones) and it still is like pulling teeth.
I would have been done with my site by it's dragging on.
Is anybody else having issues? I see a lot of people online complain about speed with the new Wordpress but no solutions. Did Wordpress ever officially address this?
There are no speed issues with WordPress. Speed issues arise when there are conflicts between plugins and or themes. Start with these first. Look for upgrades for your plugins and theme - visit the support forums to see if anyone else is having the issue.
