Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Atahualpa 3.5.3 - VERY Slow load times (like 34.4 bps-modem slow)

I'm running the site shimbukan.se, and we have had very slow load times since the install of Atahualpa. I started out on version 3.5.3 and don't dare to update to the latest one.

Anyhow I tried to use Firebug and found out that total load time in Firefox is around 52 seconds (with the site catched by Firefox). With IE8 it's longer than 90 seconds for me.

The files that takes the longest to load is "?bfa_ata_file=js" and "?bfa_ata_file=css". Each takes approx 30 sec to load.

I contacted one.com that is the webhotell we use, they asked me to edit DB HOST to something other than localhost. That seemed to have made the site somewhat faster, but still those to previously mentioned files takes around 10 seconds each.

I have searched the forums and tried to disable different plugins etc, but still no difference. Those two files must be dealt with. But what can I do to fix this?

I would be very happy for some advice or help!

OSX 10.11.5 WP 4.x Atahualpa(all) Safari, Firefox, Chrome
The site loaded for me in under 9 seconds, but it looks like you have several images over 300KB.
If you shut off all your plugins, how long does it take to load the site?

If you go to ato->Style & edit FOOTER and turn on the 'Show number of queries & timer?' option, it might hep you.

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
Using Chrome over a fast home fiber optic connection in the NYC metro area, the site loaded in 165 förfrågningar3,721 sekunder.

Using Firefox, I got 165 förfrågningar3,721 sekunder. I'm on a MacBookAir and don't have Flash, so the four Flash movies are blank. I ran YSlow with Firebug:

This page has 9 external background images. Try combining them with CSS sprites.
