WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] WPPA very slow (21 posts)

    Hi,
    I have a question concerning the speed of WPPA. I have a bunch of WPPA photo albums on my site and it takes several minutes to load them even for the albums with only ~25 photos (www.phil.chillsofa.de/wordpress/?page_id=1448). I am wondering why this is? When I initally tested your plugin I did not experience this behavior. Is this because the WPPA library is now several 1000 pictures large? Is there any way to signifcantly speed up the loading times? I like the plugin a lot, but in this configuration now it is nearly unusable.

    Thanks for your help in advance,
    Phil

    You have all albums in the above link listed separately like:

    %%wppa%% %%cover=13%%
    %%wppa%% %%cover=18%%
    %%wppa%% %%cover=...
    etc.

    If you make a dummy album, say its named California with id=4711 and set the parents of all the albums to California and use the script:

    %%wppa%% %%album=4711%%

    You have the same result, but (a little) faster. This will not fix it all, but helps and is easier to maintain. You can also set the sequence order of the albums in the album admin.

    Please check Table IX-A3: allow wppa+ debugging, then i can see a little more.

    Thanks for your answer. I will try your suggestion with the parent albums during the next days. I am not sure if this will solve the problem. It is equally slow if I point only at one album entry in my blog posts: http://phil.chillsofa.de/wordpress/?p=1830. I also turned debugging on and reinitialized the plugin. Unfortunately I don't have control over cleaning up the cache of the server.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    To my info you are at wppa+ rev 4.6.12, hotfix 001.

    Do you mind updating to the current version 4.7.12.?

    It has more diagnostics in debug mode, so i can see more... especially time needed for queries.

    This made a very big difference. Thank you. Do you think that the time for the quries is now normal on my site?

    It looks rather normal (acceptable) now. However, i will still go further searching for performance improvements. In the mean time it may be usefull if you find out if you can 'manually' optimize database tables. Look for:

    wp_wppa_albums, wp_wppa_photos, wp_wppa_rating, wp_wppa_comments, wp_wppa_iptc, wp_wppa_exif.

    I will build this in a later.

    To be continued

    Plese: supply a link to a page that displays an album or a slideshow, Greek is no my favorite language, so menues or links dont tell me anythig.

    Also, please check Table IX-A3 (allow WPPA+ Debugging). This enables me to see a lot of diagnostic data, without affecting normal users's views.

    I did some tests. The time to make the html for wppa is normal (mostly less that 0.5 sec), even in large slideshows.

    Can't you avoid redirections? They seem to take time

    What do you mean redirections? You mean to show contents in different page? Of course I can do it. Moreover some of the users ask me if there is a possibility not to see the message: your message is posted". They lose a lot of time. Thank you very much again for your quick response. I ll try to donate as soon as possible.

    Forget the redirections as they are out of your control.
