Page load with editing turned off is over a minutes just to load the main view.php?id=xxx page
External content includes blocks for twitter and Blackboard Ally (accessibility and alternate content) but deleting or hiding or disabling the plugins does not appear to change the load time.
The strange thing is when we "turn editing on" the page load time drops from over 1 minute to 2 seconds.
Browser inspect networking doesn't help as the request goes out, takes the full minute, and then everything else is loaded in the next couple of seconds (whether editing is on or not)
Any thoughts on how to debug? We don't have access to server logs but our hosting partner does.
