Loading photos to TypePad has become excruciatingly slow, to the point where it's seriously affecting my workflow and causing me to consider moving to another service. TypePad Helpdesk confirmed this is a problem they are aware of: "The problems you're seeing are probably related to an issue we're working on that's related to high Comment, Post, or TrackBack counts. In your case, the all of the Post and Comment counts are pretty high.[note: I've had the blog about 14 months and there are 309 posts and 1153 comments -- less than 4 comments per post -- and I expect to be doing this for years, so their comment that they think these counts are high is extremely discouraging news] Basically, the database is making queries for Posts, TrackBacks, and Comments and because it's a large number, it might be timing out before the query is complete. This will cause errors like the ones you've been seeing."
TypePad has so far refused to provide me with a timeframe for a repair to this problem so I'm considering moving on...can't spend my life staring at the screen waiting for something to happen (only to get a timeout message and have to start it again).
This has really put a damper on my blogging...is anyone else having this type of problem with TP? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated...
