PageSpeed, YSlow and Load Times
Can the team please look at ways to improve scores in PageSpeed, YSlow (et al) assessment systems. Like it or not these are important metrics for organic traffic rankings and need to be taken seriously by any website owner.
Examples might be (neither exhaustive nor perfect):
- enqueued css and scripts are added to a single file (with options to exclude perhaps) and variations possibly cached by default
- version numbers of files are included within the file name rather than added as a parameter
- the output delay caused by themes and plugins can be seen on an admin page which could be used by site owners to assess whether the feature(s) added by the code is worth the site performance hit
I don't know if I understood this idea correctly, but I would like very much to have the following analytical data:
1- I like to be able to see the page load speed of WordPress pages at the footnote of every page. I am currently able to do this via a piece of code, but I would like it to become a part of WordPress settings; besides, that piece of code does not calculate the numbers exactly. I feel the real page load time is a bit longer than shown by that code.
2- I would like to know how much delay each plugin causes in my page load time, so I will be able to find out what plugins make my pages slow. I sometimes suffer from very serious speed problems, while I don't know which plugin causes the problem.
WordPress is famous for becoming slow when lots of plugins installed. It should think of a way for making its pages agile and fast.
There I am completely and exactly the opinion itself
I have been around for over a year and I expect much more from WordPress
The most important of course is our website
I think most of the time the database connection/speed is not enough for WordPress, especially when you have installed a lot of plugins. Go and spend a few dollars more for a decent webserver and you will see a lot of improvement.
This is not a proper post for ideas.
This all comes down to how you customize your theme and plugins, as core WP is optimized.
