Easy
[resolved] Impact of many easy widgets (2 posts)

    Your answers have been very, very helpful and I thank you for that. What is the impact of having many Easy widgets operating at once? I have three Easy widgets set for my front page and three other Easy widgets that show only on certain posts. I have in total six Easy widgets and would like to add more in order to match different sidebars with the various content pages, authors etc. on my website. Is this a problem for page speed and SEO in general? What is the impact of having all of these widgets all listed in the same widget settings area? Does having an Easy widget that displays only on a single page slow down the homepage at all? Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    good question.
    You can have as many Easy widgets in one or many sidebars at once as you like . I do it on many of my projects and it works just fine.. you know no coding :) is just so sweet.. anyway..

    The question about the speed is actually crucial.
    The case is this.
    Each brick is more then less a call or more to the database, plus some function that has to do the whole thing. On that is not all, there are many more functions that are in charge during the output creation.
    If you write the same thing in code straight, you do not need that many call, and processes to run. You ask straight for what you want (if you know how :) ).

    In order to solve this problem, you have to use a cache. I recommend the W3TC http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/

    It does incredible job. The page is created "only once" and so the resources and calls to DB are done only once, and than all other pages are just simple HTML pages with no Db calls and processes necessary.

    SEO depends on your SEO solution. Easy has no impact on it.
