Right so here's the deal im trying to create an Aviation Database however the problem im having at the moment is i'm spending more time waiting for Yola sitebuilder to load than doing any work!

So i tried what the support team told me (try some other browsers, scale down pictures and so on so fourth) but nothing seems to work so i thought it was my computer or connection however they run perfectly fine with any other website including another website builder i use..... does anyone have any ideas of ways in which i can improve the speed of loading?

For reference purposes;
- The website has roughly 170 pages and roughly 9million to go hahaha (seems like it anyway)
- Browser currently in use Internet Explorer
- Computer Mac Book

This problem is starting to frustrate me somewhat terribly if anyone can help that would be Awesome :D

Hello Andrew

I have checked a few things on your website in your Yola Sitebuilder, using Firefox 14 on a Mac, but I wasn't experiencing the problems you are reporting. Is Sitebuidler loading slowly all the time or just sometimes on your end? When is it loading slowly? When you upload files, when you save changes, or when you publish your site?

What file types are you trying to upload for your database? How big are the files and how many are you trying to upload at the same time?

Why would you like to add many more pages, are they for your database? While we allow you to add unlimited pages to your site, regardless of your account status, we encourage you to keep this number within reason as too many pages could definitely impact on site performance. As a rough guide you should seriously consider whether it is necessary to create a site with more than 500 pages.

Thank you for your understanding.

Hey Stefan, pretty much 90% of the time its going slow but only on Yola?, they are just picture files as all the content is written using the yola text also adsense and banners go on the site via the google widget tab.

When i do upload pictures its on 4 per gallery just as a reference to the interior/exterior of the aircraft.

Yea i have huge ambitions for the database which includes a news feature,aircraft investigations etc my competitor site has 387 aircraft dimensions, powerplants etc equating to 1 page per aircraft so its going to have to be double that if not triple but there are so many other pages to go in there.

i have worked non-stop on this site pretty much for months so if it is going to damage site performance have i wasted my time with Yola because i will cry haha I only came to you guys because you kept flashing the Unlimited web pages i dont mind if i have to pay more for more space if that's the problem, but i have referred many friends to yola in the past whom are creating non-disimilar databases on other subjects, so im going to look like a complete numpty if i tell them they can't neither haha.

I would have to say in long-term prospective, we're talking 1,500-2,000 pages :S
