I tried to publish the orchard cms 1.4.0.
I didn't setup any features and it is just the default setting.
I followed the following steps.
1. download the orchard.web1.4 from codeplex
2. type the url
3. setup the orchard site as default setting. (Use built-in data storage (SQL Server Compact))
And then I tried to browse it again and the speed was good(just 2 seconds for loading).
But after 2 hours, I tried it again and it took just 21 seconds.
It is same with previous(orchard 1.3.9).
You can check all by following urls.
You can access to those above sites with this account : admin/myloveorchard
Especially, when I try to browse orchard sites everyday, it takes more than 20 seconds.
But after that the loading doesn't take so long, sometimes it takes just 2sec ~ 10 sec.
But after 2 hours, if I try to browse it again, it takes more than 20 seconds again.
The following urls are my sites what I have developed in past for demo using Orchard CMS.
