Is 3.2.5 much slower than 2.10.18?

I have been using 2.10.18 for a few years.
I am now trying out 3.2.5.
But the most noticeable problem is that it is very slow, for approx 50% of the clicks I do in the admin pages.
For example, opening a message sometimes takes less than 1 second, and yet sometimes takes 10 seconds.
Same for logging out, Save-and-continue-editing, too.

@kaon The delay is probably caused by the display of the news feed on the right hand side. That is being refreshed on each page and causing variable delays in displaying the pages.

There will probably be a new release shortly but you might want to replace the two files that are affected,
admin/ui/dressprow/rssfeed.php and onyx-rss.php (4.8 KB)

which are in the attached zip file.

Thank you.
I have replaced onyx.rss.php

But I do not see any file called rss.php within admin/ui/dressprow/

@kaon Sorry my mistake. It is rssfeed.php, which is in the zip file.

I think the random 10+second delay is solved, surprising… but thanks!

Had a similar problem, worked for me too. Thanks @duncanc!

As there seems to be a continuing problem with either not responding or responding slowly, I have made a further change to the code to avoid displaying the news feed when it is not responding.

Use these files instead of those in the earlier (4.8 KB)

These changes are now in the phplist 3.2.6 release so you should upgrade phplist instead.

Thank you very much for this!
It is a godsend for those (few) times when the server is having trouble…
