I received an alert from a client's hosting company this morning informing me that they had to shut down our gallery page due to exceeding our CPU and MySQL usage limits - MySQL limit is currently 1000 times over our limit, and CPU usage is 6 times past the limit.
My client has a WP site where he posts a lot of images, and we're using your plugin to pull images from his posts and display them in a gallery. There are currently 961 posts on the site and I'd estimate that about 90% contain images.
Is there any way for me to optimize the plugin to not pull every image any time someone accesses the gallery page? The site is averaging between 15K and 20K unique visitors per day and it is chewing up the CPU on the server.
I'd post a URL to the gallery page, but the host has unfortunately disabled it. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!
