Slow Page Load

Slow Page Load

Whether I use the link or embed the gallery in a page. It takes 55 seconds for the page to display. I only have the 20 sample images that came with PowerGallery plus one small additional image in the gallery. Any ideas what could be causing the slow load? The rest of the site responds normally.

I am having that issue as well, although not quite to the same extent. I have about 20 images on mine (grid + lightbox)...probably taking about 20 seconds and I have cable internet connection

Please post links to your gallery so I can load it here and see how it takes to load. You can also try using Firebug which will help analyze your page and tell you what seems to be taking the most time to load.

Gallery Link

Just to make sure that I hadn't done something wrong I installed the PowerGallery again on another domain. This domain only has a single php page that does a redirect and then the gallery page and PowerGallery100 folder contents.

Same Issue

Here is a link to an embed page

gallery.php

Here is the direct link to the gallery page

index.php?gallery=1&theme=dark

I appreciate your help.

Steve,

It seems unrelated to PowerGallery to me. I loaded the main http://mediarapids.net page itself and firebug reported a 45 second load time and that page doesn't have anything PowerGallery on it. It seems like something on the server itself causing this long load time, all PowerGallery is loading is some PHP, JS, and images - nothing super complex in terms of file size and very little server processing needed.

Slow Load

That's interesting that you get that slow of a load because I get the mediarapids.net page in about 2 seconds. But even assuming 45 seconds. The mediarapid.net page first redirects to mediarapids.com. Which is a rather large eZ Publish CMS website. The home page, which is what you would have gotten, is running a 600x400 video and if you take a look at the html and css for that home page in firebug you will see that it is a large number of layers of templates and overriding style sheets. So you got all of that loaded up 10 seconds faster the the PowerGallery alone on a single page. Frankly, you really can't use a comparison of the 2.

It's got to be something on the PHP side of things since nothing even starts rendering in the browser until the very end of that 55 seconds. I would add debug statements (that print out the time) throughout the gallery page so you can narrow down what part of the code is taking that long to execute. If it points to a function call, then add debug statements in that file and so on.

Slow Page

OK. I'll take that approach and let you know what it turns out to be when I find it.

Thanks
