W3 Total Cache
W3TC with Thesis generated thumbnails via thumb.php (10 posts)

    Greetings.

    I've got W3TC set up on one of my sites that uses thesis. One thing I'm noticing is that the Thesis theme calls "thumb.php" for each of the thumbnails for posts that you see on the category, tag, and home pages.

    see: http://www.noveleats.com

    The problem I'm having is that W3TC doesn't seem to be caching these thumbnails that are generated with thumbs.php

    I'm wondering how I can get W3TC to cache these images as well. Any ideas?

    There is no way to make W3TC work with that scheme since the output from WordPress is not referring to a specific file. The implementation in thesis would need to be changed.

    Thanks for the response, I feared this was the case.

    Thesis and plugins using similar conventions will eventually have to update their techniques anyway, so contact Chris Pearson about it is not a bad idea. Change is inevitable.

    I've had this problem with a theme called 'antisnews' which is a thesis like scheme. I agree with Frederick, the theme needs to adapt a bit more.

    If someone would like to tag this topic to loop in other developers, that is not a bad idea.

  7. A lot of these themes are using the timthumb.php script which in my opinion became obsolete when WordPress implemented the featured image thumbnails.

    Hello everyone,

    I seem to be having a similar problem with a Theme called Destinantion. I am having problems with my CPU consumption. My hosting company says the main consumption comes from these two files:

    http://buenviajesocialclub.com/wordpress/wp-content/themes/Destination/thumb.php

    http://buenviajesocialclub.com/wordpress/index.php

    Can I reduce the CPU consumtpion and keep this Theme?Thank you all!

    Page caching should help, but you need a more performant thumbnail implementation.
