Alter authors query to improve slow lookup on blogs with many users.

  • For blogs with lots of users (10,000+), your queries to lookup authors and author post counts take a really long time. I’m not sure how backwards compatible the below code snippet is, but it dramatically speeds up the plugin if you can use it.

    $user_args = array(
    ‘fields’ => array(‘ID’, ‘user_nicename’),
    ‘who’ => ‘authors’
    );
    $wp_user_search = new WP_User_Query($user_args);
    $authors = $wp_user_search->get_results();
    $author_ids = array();
    foreach($authors as $author) {
    $author_ids[] = $author->ID;
    }
    $author_count = count_many_users_posts($author_ids);
