Gatsby Wordpress Performance

Hello there,

I’m having huge performance issues with a basic Wordpress Gatsby build on Netlify -

I’ve simply cloned the Gatsby Wordpress starter demo (gatsby-source-wordpress-experimental/ at master · gatsbyjs/gatsby-source-wordpress-experimental · GitHub) and updated the config to point at my Wordpress CMS. The application runs smoothly in development & build on my machine but doesn’t appear to work when I deploy to Netlify. Clicking the ‘Hello World’ link does nothing.

In the console log for the Netlify build, I get the error ‘The result of this StaticQuery could not be fetched.’ However, there is no output on my local build.

Can anyone help please? Am I missing something really basic here?

Thanks in advance,


Just like the error says, it’s likely a bug in Gatsby. Have you tried opening an issue there?

Also, it might help if you update your dependencies to the latest versions.

This was fixed by amending the Netlify build command from ‘gatsby build’ to ‘gatsby clean && gatsby build’.

I hope this helps someone else sometime soon!
