I'm developing a WordPress website (countrycamper.com.au) using a Bold Theme template. I noticed that the site is running very slowly and when I disable the Metabox plugin, things speed up.
With the Metabox plugin enabled, if I open the media library, I see lots of '404' errors for each thumbnail it's trying to load. Disable Metabox and the whole things run just fine.
Same behaviour if I load a Page in admin mode with a Metabox form at the bottom.
Any ideas about what could be causing the problem? It seems linked to the Metabox plugin.
Thank you for reaching out.
Can you please create a staging site and share the credentials via this contact form https://metabox.io/contact/. I will help you to check the issue.
Hi Nguyen - thanks for agreeing to have a look.
I've just sent you the login details.
I've got a similar issue regarding site speed when metabox is enabaled.
Could you please assist
Please enable WP Debug to see if there is an error log on your site
Or you can use the plugin Query Monitor and share some screenshots in the admin area https://wordpress.org/plugins/query-monitor/
This is also an issue for me, especially when I have user front end forms enabled or user profile editor. I've even gone so far as you trying tool set but wasn't impressed. However, I am beginning to look at alternatives that seem to be less demanding than metabox yet more powerful.
Please share some screenshots of the tab PHP Errors (5) and Slow Queries. If you are using the Custom Table in the builder, please follow this screen record https://monosnap.com/file/oPhOJJulVxpT7y1Ay5q7LIm90p3NKw
to know how I resolve this issue on David's site.
Can you please deactivate all plugins except Meta Box, MB extensions, Query Monitor and switch to the standard theme of WordPress (Twenty TwentyTwo) then re-check this issue?
I see some PHP notice errors and slow queries from other plugins and the theme on your site, they might cause this issue.
So you can see that activating the Meta Box plugin does not cause the slow-down issue. It might come from another one. For your live site, you can share your site credentials via the contact form https://metabox.io/contact/
I will help you to check the issue.
Thank you, I have sent you the requested information.
Please check two screenshots before and after I deactivate all plugins except Meta Box and switch to the standard theme of WordPress (Twenty TwentyTwo). The slowdown issue looks resolved.
