Categories Box Slowing Site Down


Guest

Recommended Posts

Greetings.

 

Just recently, our site has come to a complete grind. It took me a while to find out that the Categories Box is causing the dramatic slow down. As soon as I disable it, the site speeds up back to normal.

 

We have 10 categories:

 

Maternity Wear (37)

Maternity Essentials (38)

Children's Wear (129)

Baby & Toddler Care (237)

Prams & Pushchairs-New (5)

Car Seats & Boosters-New (5)

Out & About (89)

Storage & Good Ideas (201)

Toys & Gift Ideas (175)

Summer Fun-New (9)

 

 

Has any had this problem before or know how to fix it?

 

Thanks in advance.

1 easy fix is turn of the category count for the categories box in your admin....

 

This will speed up your site.....

 

If you want even more speed up....

 

Consider using this contrib.

turn off your category counts for starters if you have that enabled. The rest depends on how you implemented the box.
