Following yesterday’s upgrade, we ran into a performance issue: the plugin that we use for the featured row and image galleries caused a huge site slowdown. I have removed it and replaced it with it’s light-weight successor, which restored the speed of the site. Unfortunately it still has some issues, mainly:
- I can’t sort the featured image by tagging date for now, they’re stuck to the topic creation date.
- Some galleries look a bit messed up.
There may or may not be a quick solution to fix this, I’m waiting for help from the plugin developer. I’ll review the situation again tonight.
