System requirements

Node.js and npm

WordPress uses a JavaScript task runner called Grunt to build its files. It requires the most recent LTS version of the Node.js runtime. It also requires dependencies fetched via npm. npm is packaged with Node.js, so if your computer has Node.js installed you are ready to go.

Troubleshoot slow edit (post/page/ct) pages in combination with Yoast SEO.

There have been multiple reports of people who have slow edit (post/page/ct) pages. Support could help us track down issues by asking the following questions:

  • Does the problem occur on every edit page of the same post type?
    • If not, it might be something specific in the content that is "causing" the slowdown. Please note:
      • Length of the content.
      • If there are a lot of shortcodes in use.
      • Use of images, links.
      • Use of other fields than the content field (for example excerpt or featured image).
      • Language in which the content is written.
  • Does the problem also occur on edit pages of other post types?
