Support » Fixing WordPress » Related Posts in Cron

  • Hello,

    I’m looking for a related posts plugin that uses a cache and does its calculations in a cron.

    After doing some research, I recently installed this plugin, but I found that it slowed my blog down significantly:

    * https://wordpress.org/plugins/related-posts-thumbnails/

    Unfortunately, I started having backend timeout issues because this plugin apparently calculates the related posts at the time the page is generated (during the client’s GET request of the post).

    I’m looking for an alternative that:

    1. Has some sort of cache
    2. Calculates the related posts in a cron, not on the web client’s GET request of my article
    3. Does the calculation of the related posts on _my_ server

    My plan is to move the wordpress cron into an actual unix cron so that its execution tasks (including calculating related posts) will _never_ affect a client’s GET request of my site.

    PS: I don’t need a whole-site cache, as I plan to use Varnish
