Does anyone with Vanilla forum on a wordpress.org domain find slow loading ?
I have a self hosted wordpress.org site with a /forum URL on the same domain linked to my Vanilla forum 126.96.36.199.
After long hours on the phone with my host, they say the slow loading is my fault and is down to CPU throttling (?).
I've followed their instructions to cull down unwanted files etc but still find the forum is rather slow at loading and the blog is even worse!
We get quite a few visitors each month but keep this website running in our free time so not really able to spend $$$ on a premium host.
The vanilla forum files are located in wordpresswebsite.org/forum folder and has independent SQL database linked to it. Is that normal to be in the wordpress sub folder ? Or is that maybe where the so-called throttling issues start ?
On a side note, I have about 40+ plugins running on vanilla and a few on the wordpress site too.
Any advice would be much appreciated as I'm new to vanilla forums and really loving the design/openess/community but worried I'm going to lose visitors with this sub par performance issues.
Thanks so much!
