QUESTION:

When I have comments enabled, my individual article pages load more slowly than the rest of my site.



ANSWER:

Go to:
Preferences > Advanced > Publish > Spam blacklists (comma-separated)

and remove sbl.spamhaus.org if it is there.

If this does not resolve the problem, read up on Diagnosing Performance Problems.

This FAQ does not apply to:

  • Sluggish admin-side performance
  • Slow rendering of article list pages
  • Delays during a comment preview or comment post
