Hello, I've been struggling with a super sluggish wordpress dashboard. The site itself seems to load at a decent speed, but the dashboard takes forever for each post or page update, or even adding an image while in the editor. I know they had a media library full of images that are too large (PDFs too), and even though I already used WP Smush, I know I'll have to go clean up a lot of the large ones. But why is the Dashboard so so slow? Notes: Hosted on Media Temple grid, Avada theme, current WP, PHP 7.0.6, MySQL version 5.6.35...I have other Wordpress sites on this same account grid using the same theme that don't have this issue.
Thanks for any help, this has been really frustrating.
