WordPress Fast Frontend

WordPress Fast Frontend: A few people still think that WordPress dynamic page generation is slow and choose to tweak their code to make page generation faster. WordPress Fast Frontend is one such endeavor. As a side note, this blog is relatively high volume and I use no such tricks or hacks (not even Photomatt’s staticize) and I see no need for any either. However, if gaining a few milliseconds is your game, try out the WordPress Fast Frontend.

    You might say that it’s time for me to get a new host however, I LOVE them in almost all ways except for the performance of the MySQL db used to power my wp site. Right now, my page generation takes about 10 Seconds for 35 Queries. I’m working with them to try and improve it, but any tool that I can use to speed up my pages is a tool I like!

    Even if my host seems to be rather ok, I notice a, well, really noticeable slow down when upgrading from 1.2 to 1.3 : when I had about 100 queries run in 0.5 seconds with 1.2, I’m now done in 1.5 seconds (steady benchmarks, a few milliseconds can vary but it’s always this time)

    Why on earth do you have 35 or a 100 queries running?

    I don’t find that number of queries too surprising. I’ve got 49 for my home page, probably because of the things in my sidebar. I’m using the link management in WP for my site navigation links, list of friends’ sites, and blogroll — all of which appear on the sidebar. Add category archive listing, recent comments, and most commented posts, plus the latest 9 entries…

    I’m just glad it’s still coming in at around 0.5 seconds. The test blog I’ve set up using 1.3 does seem a little slower, but staticize fixes that nicely.
