CoursePress makes my site slow

Hi!

I was under the impression that the site Nordiska Perspektiv was running slower nw afterinstalling CoursePress so I did a plugin scan with P3 and CoursePress was indeed the bad guy. Do you have suggestions on how to remedy this. I will add some screenshots from the scan and below is the report.

Best Regards

Felicia

    Hello Felicia,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    We're aware of the speed issues and the developers are currently working on improving this. I think you may want to try out the "release candidate" version of CoursePress Pro plugin.

    Please download this file:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/21559010/coursepress_1.2.5.9_rc.zip

    To install it, login to your server via FTP and then

    - go to the /wp-content/plugins/ folder
    - backup en entire /coursepress/ folder (just in case)
    - unpack the previously downloaded file
    - unpack /coursepress/ folder contents in to /courspress/ folder on your server (overwriting files)

    Make sure to make a full DB backup first.

    I hope that helps!

    Cheers,
    Adam

    Hi Adam!

    This made it a tiny bit better. I will give some w3totalcache-treatment to this site when I'm finished with my design customizations for CoursePress.

    Thank you Adam for the quick response and I hop you continue working on the performance issues regarding CoursePress.

    All the best,

    Felicia

    Hello Diana!

    I talked to one of our devs a few hours ago and he told me that they have identified some crucial "resource eaters" in plugin's code and the fixes should already be ready. At the moment they're performing extensive tests and hopefully a new release should be out soon.

    I'm not able to give you any ETA on this because there's always a chance that the test will reveal some other issues to be fixed or show additional places/ways for improvement so there's no way to predict release date. However, I was told that it's really close and they're adding finishing touches.

    That said, I hope this new release will fix the performance issues so you cold make the best of plugin's features :slight_smile:

    Kind regards,
    Adam
