I have several sites running atahualpa that are running fine.

The particular site in question runs fine when I switch it to another theme.

I've tried shutting off all plugins, and there is a cloud caching service running on it.

It's been running slow as long as I can remember so I can't pin-point anything specific.

I have several custom page templates, very few plugins, less photos than I've seen on much faster sites.

Any ideas? http://www.millenniumrun.com thanks,

Keith

Bluehost, I have several other WP sites running Atahualpa with them and they are running fine. I've contacted them and they said they see nothing on their side and suggested the cloud side caching that I installed with little affect.

Also, when I flip the switch over to the twentyelleven theme the site loads fine.

the 404s wouldn't affect individual load speeds though... right?

and how would I find the request that gets aborted?

Also... why don't custom page templates survive theme upgrades?

OK I re-uploaded all of my custom page templates. The site looks the way it is supposed to, it just isn't running the way it's supposed to.

everything effects load speed including how much you have running on the computer you are using to view the site.

run a 'net' test in Firebug and look thru the results

when wordpress updates a theme automatically it deletes everything in the theme folder and then loads in the new theme files.

Are you noticing the painfully slow load speeds?

I'll ask how to manually update after this is figured out, or is it better to just stay with a version that is working? I updated hoping that it would solve my problem.

I believe I resolved the 404s

Also, the backend seems to be having the same issue.

domaintools.com shows that there are 2490 other sites hosted on the same server - so depending on how active they are, it will effect your site too.

I still see two 404's
the site load is 2MB

I would try this. Remove all widgets nd plugins and see how the site loads. Measure the time, then add in the plugins and widgets a few at a time and measure teh time for each change and see what your results are.

the 404s were from the java flyout menus I had running on my custom page templates. I've removed everything on the Atahualpa html/css insert page and those are now gone.

OK How do I place the [SOLVED] tag on this thread

First: I now have Firebug, so thanks for that, the 'net' test feature helped huge.

Two things were contributing to the page load dragging

1. the 404s, the vertical drop down I am using was calling for .js that I had misplaced and external .css even though the .css was... where ever Atahualpa puts it when you use the 'add html & .css'

2. Many of my internal links were written with an extra / at the end of the address, this was causing the 301s that I asked about and was causing page loads on those links as long as 18 seconds.

Thanks a ton!
