I think part of the issue is it saves (updates) all rows each times it saves. it doesn’t simply updates the ones that actually need it (new and modified rows).
If you could somehow hack the save function so it would only update what’s needed instead of every unmodified row it wouldn’t take that long to save the post. Is this possible or am i daydreaming?
