Also installed query monitor plugin to see what it sees

the slow query is

SELECT post_id, meta_key, meta_value
FROM wp_postmeta
WHERE post_id IN

update_meta_cache() calls it, I wonder if I can prevent it from running....


It's something to do with your database.  Not sure what it is, but that's in *every* installation of wordpress by default.  So, if it was a problem because of the number of posts, there would be more hue and cry about it.

Check the indices on that table, and repair them- especially if they are on post_id.  You might also try to run mysqlcheck on all of the tables, i.e.

mysqlcheck -u root -p --check --all-databases

or...

mysqlcheck -u root -p --auto-repair --check --all-databases

if you're going to trust it to check.  Or you can just run the auto-repair after the check.

I don't see anything obvious, other than the lag.

Three more troubleshooting steps I could suggest:

1. Run the posts query to see how long it's taking.  That's all that is in the edit.php- it did a query, then formatted it with the options, i.e. select * from wp_posts where post_type = "page"
2. Create a plugin script, and try to replicate what the php script is doing in creating the posts by query, i.e.
$querystr = "SELECT * FROM $wpdb->posts as wpost ORDER BY wpost.post_date DESC";
$pageposts = $wpdb->get_results($querystr, OBJECT);
3. Then in your plugin, change it so that it's getting them by using the wp_query engine, i.e.
<?php $args = array(
   'sort_order' => 'asc',
   'sort_column' => 'post_title',
   'hierarchical' => 1,
   'exclude' => '',
   'include' => '',
   'meta_key' => '',
   'meta_value' => '',
   'authors' => '',
   'child_of' => 0,
   'parent' => -1,
   'exclude_tree' => '',
   'number' => '',
   'offset' => 0,
   'post_type' => 'page',
   'post_status' => 'publish'
);
$pages = get_pages($args);
?>
4. Last, create the site from scratch, do the import, and see if you get the same problem.

I really do think it's something with database performance, and you can't check that kind of stuff from the wp admin.

Sorry I wasn't of more help.

Can I PM you login details to the site tosee how edit.php?post_type=page looks in the browser and how it looks when you view source?

You can, but I still think you're looking at a red herring.  I understand where you're talking about now- it uses the query option at the end of the string to formulate the UI for the page.  I have the same code on mine on several sites- one of them has more pages than yours.  And I'm not experiencing the same problems.  It's just text- it shouldn't slow down your site, as it's not following to other requests. There's something else going on that's causing your problem.

First, I don't think the number of posts is the problem.  It's a red herring.

Try this in mysql (or let me know if you've already done it)

Formatted for SQL with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. REPAIR TABLE wp_posts QUICK

The code that you posted is just to show the posts in the edit page so that you can hyperlink to them and edit.  I've seen sites with more posts than that not take nearly that long.

Ok, so the first thing to do is to get your question down to the minimum.  Then we can flesh it out.

If you were asking your question to someone standing in front of you who didn't have a lot of time, what would you ask?
6  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: I need a physics/chemistry/engineering/science forum on: August 03, 2015, 06:45:57 PM
If you don't explain yourself they pretty much chastise you but if you do then they want clarification, they take this to the extreme.

My question is

Quote
edit.php and post-new.php take a long time to load

The rest is explanation, which will be asked if I don't post them initially any way.

The 'problem', if there is any, is that the question will be lost in the crowd if not answered quickly, they know it and if they make the effort to insist on clarification they should come back to read it.




If it is lost, and you don't come up with a solution, there is always the option to place a bounty on it.

And in my humble opinion, that bit that you posted as a question, isn't really one.  I can help you workshop it into a good question, if you'd like, but you have to be able to explain it to me for me to be able to do so, and I didn't really get the question from reading either.

I don't get your problem?  He was asking for clarification- which is the right thing to do if he doesn't understand the question?  And it is better to try to make your question generic for posterity's sake, i.e. unless you're asked about your specifics, just ask the question you want to ask instead of trying to 'frame' it.

Using Windows 10? Microsoft Is Watching

From the moment an account is created, Microsoft begins watching. The company saves customers’ basic information—name, contact details, passwords, demographic data and credit card specifics —but it also digs a bit deeper.

In the Screenshot Captor window, you have a list of the captures that you've done by default.  What I'd like is in a menu somewhere (whether it's in the right-click menu, or in the file menu) there to be a list of all files saved by Screenshot Captor, whether to the default location or by using the Save As command- as long as a file was saved, it would be in that list.  It can be limited to the last 10 captures if necessary, or it can be somewhere else if it's not limited.  I'd just like to see where the captures were, no matter what was saved.

Thoughts?

Each of these settings is a 'give and take' scenario. Each setting gives you something and takes away something depending on if it is turned on or off. There are no right or wrong ways to set them. It's up to each user to decide for themselves if what they gain is worth what they lose if they have a given setting turned on...or turned off.

I'll quote this again for truth.  Nothing comes free.  There are some pretty nifty features in windows 10- but to make them nifty, they have to have information.  You can cut that off pretty easily, and make your choices not to have the nifty.

It's much ado over nothing.

One thing to keep in mind about Windows 7.  It is out of mainstream support right now, in the extended support period.
ugh i hate this about ms.

I think it's unfair to expect Microsoft to support old software.

They're still releasing security updates. But they're not going to be adding new features. I don't find that unreasonable, especially since they consider Windows 7 to be two "generations" old at this point.

Agreed.  This was more of a PSA and FYI than anything else.  They have perfectly reasonable EOL procedures, IMO.  But, the more you know... and that was the only reason for this.

thanks for the info.  I have cancelled my automatic upgrade not for any reason other than i wasn't comfortable with the way it got integrated in my windows update and task tray.  Most likely, I'll wait a year or more before making any windows 10 upgrades to my machines that matter.  windows 7 and 8.1 are running smooth right now.

one of my very knowledgeable friends did the windows 10 upgrade and is very satisfied with it.  but he does the whole xbox thing and the thing he was raving about was the tight/smooth integration with windows 10 and xbox.

One thing to keep in mind about Windows 7.  It is out of mainstream support right now, in the extended support period.  What does that mean?

I thought I would post this as a separate thread outside of the Windows 10 mega-thred so nobody missed it.
Thanks for taking the time, forewarned is foreboding.

My take on the whole thing can be summed up, by a very good quote from the reddit thread that I think applies to the whole post.

Quote
That's my problem with this post. It tells people to change these settings to increase privacy, but does not explain what these changes actually do. No Onedrive integration, no Windows Defender, blocks Microsoft servers for diagnostics and feedback. It disables the p2p windows updates, which if I understand correctly could reduce bandwith usage if you have multiple computers in your network. I'm not going to do this on my computer, but I doubt Cortana is functional at all with all of these changes. Unplugging your PC is the most secure option, but you have to draw the line between functionality and security at some point. This post goes a bit further than I would like with disabling functionality.

https://jonathan.porta.co...e-scary-privacy-defaults/

That whole post to me seems to be a combination of FUD, and Microsoft not being clear in what they mean/were applying these too.

But I did want to get others' take on it.

... and even before reading these, I'd already done the custom, and already turned all of these off.  I figured, if I needed anything, I could turn them on later.

Thoughts?

I have a feature request: Ignore all topics (current & future) started by a certain user.

I think we've gone down that route before (the asking) and his response (and a good one) was that sort of thing leads to the fragmentation of the community.  But maybe his opinion has changed.

well, it just seems like you get more bang for the buck with the alibaba options.  the NUC seem to be ok...but the alibaba items sure seem to pack a lot of power in a small, fanless unit for pretty cheap.  I'm actually a little curious how they are.  but ultimately, i'm having a hard time comparing the specs and prices of these things.  the cpus are so confusing.

Not an alibaba, but my foxconn seemed the same way- to pack punch into a small package.  The power supply was where the problem was, however.  And now it won't boot at all.

I could use a nice lightweight (Windows) Laptop that doesn't cut my bank account to ribbons.

Depending on how literally you meant 'lightweight', Acer is coming out with the Cloudbook at USD169, to compete with the HP Stream series, which seem to be going for around USD230.

Thanks for the tip.  I'll take a look.  smiley


I thought to take a look at that HP Stream for my wife and daughter to share.  And quickly looked away.  In use, it's very laggy, even doing basic things.  That was with windows 8, but it was *bad*.  It was masked because of the SSD, but it was still nothing that I'd put up with.  So unless performance is not a consideration *at all*, I'd recommend a steer clear of the HP Stream.

I'm not bleeding yet, so I think I'm ok.  Of course, that's on my laptop, not on my primary computer...

Perhaps you can point me in the right direction. I could use a nice lightweight (Windows) Laptop that doesn't cut my bank account to ribbons.  Then I could use the Toshiba as a guinea pig machine.  I'm taking a computer repair class and eventually I will succumb to the temptation of upgrading ram or some other excuse to pry the box open and screw things in, or up, or something.  smiley

Laptop purchases are a minefield that I've not learned to fully negotiate- especially on the low end.  I have a Dell Inspiron 7000, and it works very well for me, and was not exorbitantly expensive- but I had a lot of discounts to make it so.  But it is a good computer.

"As you already know"?

It seems that there is subtext in your answers that point to a prior conversation and relationship.

Please elucidate us, so no one will walk into a minefield?

No offense was intended by my post. I have nothing but the most sincere admiration for Don and his work with XYplorer--so much so that I will in all likelihood purchase the software when the changes are implemented. Conversely, I feel that, as a consumer, I have the right to keep my options open. Looking at things honestly: I have not signed any contract to purchase XYplorer, nor has Don signed a contract to adapt the software to suit my personal needs and wishes.

Agree totally!  I was just asking as we've had arguments from other boards spill over here before, and considering the inflammatory nature of some of the parts of highend01's response, I wanted anyone that was getting into the thread to know of any subcontext.  I've run into such arguments unknowing before, and it's not fun.

I hope posting from the edge is more fun than living on the edge.

Anybody else notice that thread it 3 years old?

I just looked at it as the OP updating the thread with new information, i.e.

for Screenshot Captor there is only an older portable version (4.5.0) available at PortableApps.com available:

I suppose he could have created a new thread... but why?
