Update: Thanks so much to everyone who very terrifically emailed and left comments to help me out!
I am not a technical person; I mean, I can program a bit in HTML but that’s about it. Everything beyond that is ridiculously out of my realm. Still, it’s been a learning experience!
According to my site, the former theme was the issue, making 56 or so SQL requests per load. I am keeping my bits crossed that this is the end of the site crashes.
For now, this is the theme, but I hope to suss that out in short order as I look at my options moving forward.
Thank you so so so so so so so much for helping me out. I’ll keep you posted! For now, enjoy (I hope) no down time. I’ll get the images back in as quickly as I can…
