WordPress 2.7.1 Dashboard Slow Load Fix

As of late my blog’s dashboard has been bogging down and taking forever to load.  At first I tried removing some of my plugins, specifically my Word Press Stats plugin, but it didn’t work.  Then I started removing all of my front page load screen options, still slow as ever.

It wasn’t until I glanced at my number of comments under overview that I realized what the problem was.  According to WordPress I had over 5,000 comments awaiting moderation.  Of course most of these were spam, but I had not set my Akismet to automatically delete after 30 days.  So guess what, I had a huge ass back log of comments that were slowing my dashboard load down tremendously and some times even timing out.

A quick delete of all Spam comments fixed my slow loading WordPress 2.7.1 and all is back to normal.

  1. I’m having the same problem with my Dashboard. It takes to load forever and even worse if I want to make a new post. I don’t know what went wrong or why and how to solve this.
