Registration is terribly slow; 8+ seconds

Very unhappy with Event Espresso’s performance. The registration panel takes 8+ seconds to load, and in general, the plugin bogs down the site. Please see the screenshot for the two slowest calls during user registration. What can be done to improve this?

What page can we view the 8 second load time on?

This is on the registration panel, moving from any event via “Register Now.”

Has this always been slow?

The reason I ask is because I checked your site in the Chrome web inspector and it’s showing a 302 redirect that’s happening when the /registration-checkout page has the ?ee=_register in the URL string. This is in the live http headers going from the ticket selection to the registration form.

What happens is when Event Espresso steps through the registration process, it performs a wp_safe_redirect. This is right after the ticket selections are processed. This helps to prevent double form submissions.

What may be happening here is WP is passing a url to the server, the server can’t find it, but it somehow manages to redirect to it. Do you have any redirection plugins installed, or plugins that modify the query strings for SEO purposes set up?
