Publishing Pages really slow (minutes > does not finish) Reproducable
|Reported by:||lummie.co.uk||Owned by:||lummie.co.uk|
Ok, This is a weird one. I've been having problems with publishing / updating certain posts/pages on two of my sites (on different servers but same hoster). When I update the page or copy the html to a new page, the publish/update never finishes, if I stop it using the stop button or navigate away, I end up with half a post, (not stopping at any particular point). After hours of investigation, and reading other peoples problems with 2.7.1 being slow... I have a reproducable case on my blog.
I don't have ssh access to the server unfortunately, but I did enable wp_debug and that didn't show up anything.
Open works.txt in an editor, copy all the text, in wordpress create a new PAGE (haven't tested it with new post) in html view paste the text in, give it a title of 'works' and publish. Within a couple of seconds, the page should be published.
Now do the same thing but with fails.txt, copy the contents, create a new PAGE, title it 'fails', paste in the text and publish it.
On my server this sits there forever, until you get bored and stop it.
Now, I can here you crying out there must be something wrong with my server. Maybe so. But here is the WEIRD BIT:
Copy the fails.txt, create a new PAGE and give it a title 'fails2', all the same as before.
Now before you publish, there are a list of LI elements, about the 4th paragraph
The first li element reads "How about a blog, that you can add to from anywhere....."
change the word 'from' to 'frox' (yup that's right change the m to a x)
On my server the page will now publish no problem.
I asked on the forum for someone else to attempt to replicate this but didn't get any feedback so far.
I have had this problem on another site, but haven't had chance to narrow down the cause by removing blocks of text until it works.
