WordPress appears to be slow loading

At times, you may experience performance issues with WordPress. This typically occurs when you have themes or plugins that require a high amount of resources. If you’re experiencing slow load times with your WordPress site(s), you can try the following tips:

  • Disable plugins
  • Change your theme
  • Increase the memory limit in the wp-config.php file

To increase the memory limit in your wp-config.php file, you can add the lines below:

/** Memory Limit */
define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’96M’);

The above variable of 96M can be adjusted as needed.

Themes & plugins:

Themes & plugins can always be enabled/disabled through your wp-admin dashboard or via FTP by renaming the folders. It is recommended to begin troubleshooting by checking your plugins first as plugins are the number 1 cause for WordPress performance issues.

In addition, we recommend that you review our WordPress Performance Optimization guide & our WordPress Themes & Plugins: Bloat & what is too many guide as well.
