I promised an update before tomorrow, and there’s some good news.
WordPress Search plugin – Yay!
The new code for the Search plugin was installed late this afternoon, and the site is being indexed as we speak. The graph of Search plugin activity – before and after the new code was installed – is like night and day. In a good way. So I believe that one is resolved. Happy dance.
The Custom Twitter Feed plugin – Boo!
I gave you a heads up that I would need to turn on this trouble-making plugin on at some point for the plugin developers to see the problem in action. I turned it on today for them as requested, and we lived with the site slowness for most of the day, and they never f-ing looked at it.
We’ll get it figured out. But that plugin will stay off until next week. In case you missed the thread yesterday, that’s why you don’t see John’s twitter feed in the sidebar.
Impossibly slow site loading on some older iPads, sometimes – Better? Or not?
My suspicion was that the WordPress search plugin issue was affecting iPads, particularly older iPads, more than other devices.
Now that the new code for the search plugin is in, we should know right away whether the two issues were related. I know I can count on you to let me know either way, right?
If it’s not resolved, I’ll be in contact with the folks who offered to help with testing. NEXT WEEK.
Ads turned off until Thursday!
John has graciously agreed to turn off all the ads until Thursday. So we get to be ad-free until then!
