Popular Posts Tabbed Widget for Jetpack
Plugin seems to slow down the entire blog (3 posts)

    Hello, thanks for a great plugin. I've been using it for a few years already and it worked great. However, as of few days ago I noticed that my blog gets much slower than usual and WP Tuner (plugin) reports that Popular Posts Tabbed Widget causes the biggest lag... here's a screenshot:

    The weirdest thing is that I haven't changed or updated anything on that blog in some time (at least a few months) and everything worked very fast... and now this suddenly appeared without any apparent cause.

    It appears as if the plugin is using up a lot of Database resources. Any idea on how I can fix this?

    Interesting.. Has JetPack updated recently? Or did this start happening during a wp core update? Basically, this plugin piggybacks on a jetpack function that grabs popular posts. This plugin doesn't do caching by itself since JetPack (supposedly) does this already. I'll take a look what's new when I get time.

    To be honest... I am not sure when Jetpack was updated last. I think it might have been recently... e.g. 15 days ago or so.. but don't quote me on that.

    However, even with that update about a few weeks ago nothing was slowing down the blog until today or yesterday. And today or yesterday I don't recall changing anything at all.

    It seems my blog has some other issues because even when jetpack and popular posts tabbed widget are turned off, WP Tuner reports some significant lags under "Page generation performance" in:

    plugins_loaded
    get_sidebar
    posts_selection

    and within SQL Database performance in:

    wp_posts
