Just installed SilverStripe on my windows laptop with windows installer. I understood it should be quite fast. Still in my case admin page and in fact all CMS pages load really slowly. When I tried the online demo it loaded pages much faster. Is this because of my slow computer or because of some other problem? I tought localhost would react faster than online version.

In addition SilverStripe wont load its own images like style buttons and such.

Can anyone give me any advice? Thanks.

The fact you're saying some images won't load is hinting something is wrong, and that its not your computer's processing power.

Is this with 2.0.0 or 2.0.1rc2? (I'm assuing the former)

We've had some reports of problems that can be worked around with a change to ManifestBuilder.php

On line 27 of sapphire/core/MainfestBuilder.php, there is the following piece of code.

		return !file_exists(MANIFEST_FILE) 
			|| (filemtime(MANIFEST_FILE) < $lastEdited) 
			|| (filemtime(MANIFEST_FILE) < time() - 3600)
			|| $_GET['buildmanifest'] || $_GET['flush'];

Replace it with the following check.

		return !file_exists(MANIFEST_FILE) 
			|| $_GET['flush'];

Let us know if that fixes your issue.
