PHP Fatal error: Maximum execution in acronym plugin

  • Ummm, because it does a ton of preg_replaces for EVERY acronym in its database? So, a big article, plus a ton of acronyms in the database, equals a lot of processing time. So running the process ends up exceeeding your PHP processing time limit.

    But, you don’t want a standard page load to take 30 seconds in ANY case… what’s your page load time WITHOUT this plugin active? how about page load for a single article being viewed? okay, THEN, how about page load for a single article WITH the plugin reactivated?

    There are other coding approaches which would cut down the time significantly. Since I have a plugin with a similar type of functionality (that is, look for particular tags within post content and replace them live), I know there are faster ways… such as doing a optimal match expressions to detect if there’s anything to replace (i.e., make a match for ALL acronyms), then loop through the matches, rebuilding the body content block as you go.

    But you’d have to ask the plugin writer about this for more details. 😉

    Thanks Davis, what is your plugin as a matter of interest?

    Thanks

    CG-Inline is the one I was referring to. It does sort of ‘macro based’ link creation, including post permalinks, multi-page links, my CG-Amazon inline text and image product links, as well as links to click through to google, wikipedia, and other data lookup sources.
