WP Query Counter


Displays exactly how many MySQL queries are executed and how long it took to execute them.

Do you ever wonder why your blog is running so slow? This simple plugin was written to help web developers identify a common problem with many WordPress installations: Query abuse. By using this plugin, you can compare the database query counts load times directly on your website via a small and friendly box in the bottom-right corner of your screen. Use WP Query Counter to aid in your plugin’s development. Efficient code is fast code!

This plugin is no longer maintained. While it may continue to work into the future, I would recommend taking a look at a derivative plugin, WP Page Load Stats, written and supported by Mike Jolley.


  1. Unzip into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s it 🙂
