Make it faster

    I think the performance with WP-Cache2 is good enough on the public pages, but the administration is extremely slow at times, so I'd too like some improvements in this area!

    Absolutely, especially for those of us running big WPMU sites... quick quick quick please :)

    I can not agree more.

    There is my contribution:
    http://vizualbod.com/wp-admin/wp-admin.css
    Was 18,8 -> now 15,8 and it reads better!

    This is one second on a dial-up connection (my GPRS is pleased too).

    Who needs intended XHTML? The only XHTML formatting needed to keep perfect readability are line breaks after all non-pair elements and block pair elements.

    The slowest server-side stuff is probably function page_rows(); On one of my websites it runs 60 seconds and than it dies:
    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\...\wp-includes\query.php on line 182

    Bad pages management prevent WordPress from being a No.1 CMS out there.

    WordPress cannot (in theory) be made much faster, unless entire pages are made static with a caching system and it's core is not even loaded for the visitor. It's simply a limit of WordPress's architecture and would require an entire core rewrite to change. If you have mysql caching turned on and an opcode cache (apc, eaccelerator, xcache, etc) that's the most you can do before solutions like wp-cache.

    The reasons why include:

    Agreed, overall performance needs to be improved.

    Yep, faster is better on both the frontend and backend.

    I'm guessing it's all the queries that slow everything down. A vanilla installation, without any plugins or anything added, just runs slow. We need more speed, and less CPU load.

    You know you've got it right when Digg users stop bashing WordPress. :D

    Please optimize to reduce the CPU resource usage.

    Speed improvements are good but you have to realize that you cannot have a zillion plugins and then expect things to run smoothly. There is always a trade off between functionality and speed. Look at operating systems, the more stuff you have to preload the longer it takes.

    Use these techniques for performance boost
    WP-Cache, PHP_FastCGI, repair and optimize your MySQL database occationally, remove plugins that aren't activated, consider installing WP Super Cache.
