angry   Super Slow
My localendar is embedded into my Weebly calendar. It is loading so slowly onto the page. None of the other pages do this or other sites. Even when I am making changes while publishing on localendar site it is taking forever to load.

I only have 1 Google calendar imported onto my localendar.

My customers are getting frustrated at the time it is taking for it to load, so any help appreciated.

Re: Super Slow
I just hit the site and the calendar loaded instantly with the rest of your page.

Regarding the Google calendar import though: We do refresh any imported iCal feed on every request... this is not typical (even Google does not do this) but we have many people who (after they add an event to an external calendar) want it to show immediately on their localendar calendar.

This does create a performance connection outside localendar; we won't display the calendar until the external feed returns. And even Google may sometimes struggle here.

One option is to export your calendar to a file, and import that file into localendar. Of course, that removes the extra call out to Google, but then the calendar won't auto-sync and you will have to manually re-upload the file on a regular basic.

We could easily move to a format like Google where we only update the feed every few hours, but based on past member feedback I don't think this would be a popular decision.
