Small speed issues and caching q's (9 posts)

    I recently switched over to WP from MT and I have a fairly noob kinda question. One of the things that I've noticed is that the response time from my ISP's MySQL db is not great so I've done a couple of things to try and speed it up (reducing the amount of posts shown, etc). I like everything else about my ISP so I'm not really looking to change just for a faster db, but my site right now takes 1.5 sec to gen 21 queries. In looking around, I've seen many sites that are faster. What really bothers me is when I click on a link and then use the back button, my page has no kind of caching so it regenerates every time I click off and on. Mind you, 1.5 seconds isn't terrible, but if I'm clicking on several of my links and going back it takes quite a bit of time. Is there anything I can do? Is there a way to cache the generation of the page for x minutes or something? Any help would be appreciated. The web page is at:

    your pages load fairly quickly for me. removing the textamerica javascript may speed up the page loading.

    when I look at the code though it does seem like it has a relatively long query time. I will look into the staticize reloaded plug in. I've considered removing the text-america code, but it seems like the links list takes the longest to generate (cause it happens close to last in the code). I tried moving it above the content generation, but then the style looked weird until the content generated. The links loaded faster of course, but it didn't seem like an optimal solution. Even if the text-america code takes a while to load, it's not above the fold so to speak so it's ok if it takes longer. It's just my links list that I'd like to hurry up some.

    you could restrict the number of links you show and set it to random.

    I just loaded up the Staticize-reloaded plug in. Is there a down-side to using it?

    Just been using that site - despite it's very salesmanlike playing with figures.
    Are there any other sites than can be used to test your page and get decent feedback ?

    I've used this site before and it's pretty good:

    On another note, after loading staticize-reloaded, it seems that my RSS feed doesn't go through to the readers I use. Is there something I can do?
