Support » Plugin: Rate my Post - WP Post Rating » Is it resource hungry?

  • Hi, I’m currently paying for technical support to optimise my page load speeds and I’ve just been advised that I should remove my current ratings plugin because it’s adding quite a few technical files to each webpage load, and it’s relying on making a new connection to the rating widget server every time the page loads, so it’s not wholly self-contained on my website.
    As your plugin looks promising, I’d like to use it instead. Can you please reassure me that it won’t affect page loading speeds?
    Thank you so much.

    Hi @antya63,

    The plugin uses ajax to get vote count and average rating from the server. Ajax is asynchronous (i.e. non-blocking). Therefore, your page loads normally, and the vote count and average rating load in the “background”, so there should be no negative impact on user experience or seo. However, you might see a slight increase in “finished” time in chrome dev tools since there also asynchronous requests are counted. DOMContentLoaded should, however, not change much. You can read more about this in this support thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/admin-ajax-loading/

    Let me know if you have more questions.

    Blaz
