Re: WPMU or Buddy Press is really slow



I looked at your site and three things right off the top;

1). Ditch the Get Satisfaction button and link to them. That code for their widget is terrible AND it will definitely slow down your site. I think you should also think about the other social bookmark widget too. I would also add that there are time when the Facebook Fan widget loads really slowly. Better yet just take all of those off then see if your site loads faster. Bottom line keep the JavaScript widgets to a minimum.

2). Add this to the top of your .htaccess file;

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php

3). If 2 worked add this to the top of your header.php


ini_set(‘zlib.output_compression’, ‘On’);

ini_set(‘zlib.output_compression_level’, ‘1’);


(of course ad the <> )

Try all three of those things and see how much faster you are loading… Andrea is right next time add a link to your site if you want help.
