Several people have alerted me to the fact that Bits & Pieces is taking an unusually long time to load.
I’ve deactivated some recently updated plugins to see if one of them might be the culprit.
Just be aware that I’m looking into the problem.
Update: I think I may have found the problem by process of elimination of some plugins. It seems to be loading faster now.
Update II: OK. Apparently not fixed. I’m still deactivating plugins and checking. Let me know if it gets better on yourt end.
Update III: I’ve optimized the database and it seems to have solved the problem. Let me know if it’s better for you.
