Don’t Upgrade To WordPress 3.8!

wordpress_hexThis was a mess. I did not expect WordPress 3.8 to slow down my blog site. As in literally! The admin console takes too long to load and so do my blog posts.

I tried to look in the web for a solution but it seems people are blaming the hosting provider or possible WordPress plugins. Unbelievable!

Everything was in good condition until I pressed that update button. And it is quite a hassle downgrading so it totally sucks. If you have not upgraded to WordPress 3.8, DON’T!!!

Sure, the visuals look appealing but who surfs the web in their phones in the first place? Just go download the WordPress app.

If you upgrade to WordPress 3.8, it will be hell for you. Load time is slow and you will see connection timed out messages quite often especially while you compose a new post.

Now my monetization chances are getting slimmer because if the advertiser sees your site as loading at a snail pace, they will ignore your website.

So if you are still with version 3.7, stick with it! It won’t hurt you.

  1. I have experienced the same problem with my two wordpress sites, and have been trying to figure out what the problem is. Good to find a possible reason for the slowdown.

    1. @matt: because of wordpress 3.8 though i managed to use a plugin (forgot the name) that detects how much each plugin use resources. While now my blog runs fast again, i had to change some plugins that use more resources in order to compensate for wordpress 3.8 affecting my blogs in the first place
