Admin WordPress 3.1 Slow — Do You Notice it too?
Since I updated my blog to wordpress 3.1, whenever I first time logged in to my admin dashboard and want to create or edit blog post, the admin dashboard loads very slow, and it happens to other blogs, I even tried to install a brand new blog without any plugins or premium themes, and all happen to be the same, admin wordpress 3.1 slow problem still remains.
After noticing this glitch I did some Google research and it seems to be wordpress 3.1 bug, because I saw alot of people are reporting this matter, either to wordpress.org official forum or some bloggers wrote the same articles about this problem.
I am not sure if you also have it, but apart of doing researches above, last time I check Google analytics, some Google visitors actually search for the search term, Admin wordpress 3.1 slow.
Of course, personally updating wordpress to the latest version is a must to me. Usually before I updated my blog, I first tried in my local wordpress blog (related post: install wordpress locally windows, and install wordpress local mac) to test everything first.
But this time, I updated to wordpress 3.1 directly after backing up wordpress database only, so I try it within my online blog.
The update alone went excellent, just from the day one, my admin activities became slower at the first minutes, after that, it runs okay.
I thought at first, it was because of my host, but it happens everyday after I logged in to my dashboard, other than that, I don’t find any problems so far.
Admin wordpress 3.1 slow What to do?
I have not tried too much stuff about it yet, but many people said, by turning off admin top bar in the front end of wordpress blog (related post: disable admin bar wordpress 3.1) will help.
I actually did it, but to me, it does not help quite much, the admin wordpress 3.1 slow problem is still there.
What weird, is, always in the first minutes after I logged in, it becomes slower. But a few minutes later, it will be fine.
Admin wordpress 3.1 slow any solutions?
Since I notice a lot of bloggers have this problem too (this I know in so many forums, not only in wordpress.org forum, but other forums which have bloggers as members), I actually think this is wordpress 3.1 glitch and I hope and expect to be better in the next update.
Even to be honest, I think this updates are too frequent..I would rather update not too often, but updates without bugs.
Though you can try to disable the admin top bar first as I linked in my other post above, to see if it would help.
If this admin wordpress 3.1 slow glitch still remains, then I am right about the bug of this version, and we can only wait for the next update, which I guess it will come after three or four months later.
Let us know, if you have this admin wordpress 3.1 slow problem too!
