My wordpress installation is very slow whenever I activate the plugins of WPML. On your forum I found a couple of settings to change but it didn't help. Theme doesn't seem to affect speed (standard theme is also slow) so I figured the problem has to be hosting (godaddy), Called them, they can't figure out a solution either.

URL of (my) website where problem appears: hidden link

Hope you can help me!!

Can you please update WPML and other AddOn Plugins to the latest versions if you don't have any current jobs with ICanLocalize? You can download latest versions from here

Then you should deactivate and delete all WPML plugins from your website, and follow the instructions here (Section : Updating WPML Manually)

// NOTE : Please make a complete backup of your website, before updating. The update should go without problems, but in case something goes wrong it is good to have a backup.

After the installation, please check if there are any slow queries generated by WPML. You should download plugin "Query Monitor", then check the backend and frontend ; set queries by caller : "sitepress multilingual cms" and order by speed (slowest first) and check if there are any slow queries called by WPML.

If there are some of them, please check when :

- All non WPML plugins are deactivated
- Theme is set to default Twenty Fourteen
