    I am using PCIG 0.1.7 and wordpress 3.2.1

    This page http://www.caramelpotatoes.com/recipe-box/

    Is where we use the plugin. If we post too many categories the page just doesn't load at all.

    [pcig category=app show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=bee show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=bev show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=bread show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=break show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=chi show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=cho show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=con show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=des show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=fru show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=gri show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=pas show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=por show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=pot show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=ric show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=san show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=sid show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]
    [pcig category=veg show=category_name,post_title links=post_title hide_empty=true]

    is the current page code, but we used to have more categories, but as we add posts we have to keep removing categories. Any idea on how we can fix this?

    I will try check if there a solution, but most likely there won't be a solution. The plugin uses recursive function to generate the tree index, wich are cpu and database intensive and having too many post and categories is not going to help.

    I will try make any optimization that I can, but I believe that code of the plugin is already mostly optimized, so don't expect much.

    One thing that you might want to try is to increase the memory_limit and max_execution_time of the php in your webhosting and then install a wordpress caching plugin like W3 Total Cache. I never had many categories on my site so I not sure of efective will a caching plugin will be.

    I'm not sure if what I sugested fixed the PrestonSwain's problem, it depends on the number of posts/categories as well as the server memory.

    When a error Allowed memory size of .... bytes exhausted while the refering to the simple_html_dom.php is because of the post_sections parameter wich you are using wich might have too much options or you have too much posts in wich you ara searching for text and you server's memory runs out.

    If you really want to use the post_sections then you will have to increase the avaible memory for php by increasing memory_limit in you php settings or remove some options of the post_sections parameter or remove this parameter completely.

    I will try to add any speed/memory improvements in the next version, the I can garanty that this error will not occurr when there are to many post in the blog.

    Not sure if it will work, but test the new version. I added a few tweaks to the code but I can't garantee that will solve your problem.

    If it won't work, try the plugin PS Auto Sitemap too

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ps-auto-sitemap/

    I only use 1 category for Post Category Index Generator: (but this plugin can be used in many pages if needed)

    http://www.astrasuite.com/astrablog/used-hifi-for-sale/

    and PS Auto Sitemap for the bigger one, a sitemap (it can be used as a category list of course) :

    http://www.astrasuite.com/astrablog/astra-suite-navigation-page/

    PS Auto Sitemap also has different options how one wants to display the page

    Or one can also put the numerous categories under one parent, and use PCIG ...

    yeahhh! it's working! I have some categories and over 50 posts, maybe that was too much before but with new changes it's working perfectly!

    You can check it here if you are interested, and if you need some more information that I could provide you, or testing anything, don't hesitate to tell me!
