    Hi @rcarlos,
    Please let me know your hosting service information.
    Also, what other plugins do you use?

    If you have some issues you should look at your database. In most cases the issue comes from WordPress comment tables. Also, make sure you don’t have errors in the WordPress caused by the active theme and by other plugins, check your site health in Tools > Site Health admin page.

    From wpDiscuz side. These option could make wpDiscuz even faster:

    1. Set [Initiate AJAX loading after page] for “Comment List Loading Type” option in wpDiscuz > Settings > Comment Thread Displaying Tab

    2. Enable “Display only parent comments and view replies ∨ button” option.

    3. Decrease the number of parent comments loaded on first page in WordPress Native Settings > Discussions admin page. By default, it may be set 50, you can set it 10. This is the number of parent comments, so the 10 parent comments may load even 100 comments with their replies.

    4. Try to use wpDiscuz fast AJAX option, by disabling “Use WordPress native AJAX functions” option in wpDiscuz > Settings > General Settings Tab

    5. Make sure these two options are enabled in the same admin page:
    — Combine JS and CSS Files to Optimize Page Loading Speed
    — Minify JS and CSS Files to Optimize Page Loading Speed

    And so on…

    There are tons of tricks that make wpDiscuz faster than rocket. However in most cases the reason of speed issue comes from your website, theme, plugins, errors, database issues and server issues. So, instead of searching an alternative to this awesome plugin, it’s better to find the real problem causer.

    Site Health = OK https://prnt.sc/132wpmt
    All settings are as you recommend. Besides the number of comments, there were 50 made 25 and this reduced the download speed to ~1.7 seconds. https://prnt.sc/132xe7z
    Without wpDiscuz plugin ~ 350 milliseconds.
    Any more ideas?`

    Hi @rcarlos,

    Hosting beget.com

    The name says nothing. I’ve asked you to provide some information about the hosting, not the name of your hosting service. Please let me know what is your hosting plan and https://beget.com/en/virtual-hosting

    If you are using a shared hosting service for a few dollars per month then you should expect this kind of issues. All good and feature-rich plugins ask you for some resource. Spending a few dollars on hosting service you’ll only have a good performance for a simple plain website, nothing good and feature-rich can be added on such websites without speed affection.

    There is no way to add new features without performance and speed affection if you’re on a sharded poor hosting service.

    Let’s not look for mystical villains.
    Hosting excellent vps https://prnt.sc/1364qeh
    Site with 7 pages. There is nothing to slow down, everything is cached.

    Write a website link with your plugin and over 300 comments (except your demo).

    The demo is a simple website, nothing extraordinary.
    So if you think a comment plugin with more than +90k active installs and with +400 5* reviews cannot work with 300 comments then you should try to find better alternative. I’m not going to create a website lists here.

    I’d just recommend you change the poor hosting service you use or optimize your website. Also, ask your hosting support to optimize the MySQL database and make sure the table use MyISAM engine.
