We’re faster, finally.

August 25, 2009 | By | 1 Reply More

Over the past few weeks, we’ve had a lot of trouble with this website running slowly.   Yesterday, we figured out the source of the problem: a WordPress plug-in for “popular posts.”  Removing that plug-in sped up the site immensely. That is why that “popular posts” navigation feature no longer appears.  In return, the site should pop up on your browsers in a second or two now, instead of 15 seconds.

WordPress is a fantastic (and free) blogging platform and many of the optional plug-ins are slick, but once in a while we run into a plug-in that doesn’t play nice with the platform.

Bottom line, our load times should now be a lot less taxing on your patience.
