  • anyone find solutions to speed up wordpress 2.6.3??

    Other than the use of plugins, there are other best practices that can be used to speed up the blog.

    1- Images
    scale it down to the exact pixel size and also to 72dpi. This will make it load faster

    2- Other Plugins
    Try to see if there are other plugins thats causing it to load slowly. For me, the ‘sharethis’ plugin caused my website to load really slowly and when I deactivated it, it loaded much faster! So, that might be the cause.

    3- CSS
    It’s good to clean up and streamline your CSS to make increase loading time. I read this somewhere on the website A List Apart.

    4- Check your WordPress loops
    The more php processing your theme requires, the longer it might take for your page to load. So, again, its good to surf around and find tips to streamline your code.

    Hope this helps in some way:)

    The addthis button (not plugin) was slowing my site down bigtime. I removed it and it seems to be a little quicker. I still think it’s slow though. If anyone has a moment to check, please take a look and let me know:

    Thank you!

    Fast download to me from your site. 🙂

    Good blog, i read more here now. 🙂
