[Plugin: Yet Another Related Posts Plugin] Really slow to create new posts when this plugin is activ (3 posts)

    Installed Yet Another Related Post Plugin and noticed that creating posts in WordPress (i.e. the wp_insert_post function) slows down dramatically.

    I performed a quick debug and found an SQL call which simply deletes one row from the yarpp_related_cache table.... it was consistently taking over 9 seconds to execute!

    In the week it's been running the table now has over 110k rows and is around 6MB. Seems a bit crazy. Unsure if the table is even indexed?!

    Has anyone had similar experiences with this plugin?

    also looking for a good and customizable related posts plugin. found this one and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/contextual-related-posts/ and both seem to have a couple of issues.

    have you found an alternative to this one?

    @conjase yes the table is indexed. Note that there are recommendations in the YARPP FAQ for how to make YARPP less computationally intensive, which may help you.
