  • I’ve just installed Social Media Feather, and haven’t used it enough to feel qualified to leave a review yet, but it looks like it may just fit the bill.

    That said, I’m seeing RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: 110: Connection timed out messages in both places where you’re rendering the content of your feed. I’m not sure why, because both of your feedburner feeds seem to come up without any difficulty on their own, but I had to comment them both out.

    Mostly just an FYI – not necessarily looking for any support on this.

  • ok, i didn’t do a ton of digging here, but removing those 2 lines of code resulted in a 10s drop in admin loading speed from 30s down to 20s of TTFB. Deactivating the plugin itself dropped the admin load TTFB from 20s to .5s. Reactivating it bumped it back up to 20s – this is to load the posts list (with an admittedly large number of draft posts, and a large number of published posts as well). Deactivating again dropped the TTFB back down to ~450 ms, so I’m fairly confident this plugin is at least the indirect source of the problem.

    Since I imagine someone else would have noticed this if it’s all in the plugin I’ll chalk this up to an interaction between Social Media Feather and another plugin on the site I’m managing, or some special case around large numbers of draft posts, potentially – this is all before I even had an opportunity to configure the plugin. I’m not going to go ding you on the plugin page with a bad review based on the above factors, but I am disappointed – this looked like a perfect plugin for what we were hoping to achieve. I’ll just have to look elsewhere, because I can’t afford the time and effort to track this down.

    Thank you for a good and informative summary and for being extremely smart about your issue and realizing it’s a narrow case or potential plugin conflict.

    In fact, your report was so reasonable that I’m willing to troubleshoot this issue even if it could be a very narrow case, as a token of appreciation. If you’re still interested in using the plugin, just reach us on our Contact Form with login and FTP details and a disclaimer that allows us to access your site for the purposes of troubleshooting and I will look into it personally. Please add a link to this forum post so I know what it’s about.

    That’s a generous offer, and I thank you for that, but I’m afraid I can’t grant you that access. I can provide you with a list of the plugins I’m using, and some idea of number of posts and pages and their statuses if that would help.

    synved, please do not request login/ftp details on the forums.

    To troubleshoot any possible plugin conflict, or to rule that out the standard troubleshooting procedure is to deactivate all other plugins to see whether the issue persists. If it does not, reactivating the plugins one by one unil the issue occurs again should allow you to identify which plugin has the conflict. Similarly temprarily switching to a default theme such as twenty sixteen can allow you to investigate whether there is a theme conflict.
