One annoying thing I’d noticed after switching to WordPress, was the increased time it took to load each page.
I’ve just installed the wp-cache plugin, and it’s very much helped to speed up the site. If you’re running WordPress without it, you might want to give it a shot. It effectively caches your pages and reduces the load time and server strain. You’ll also likely want to fix one minor bug with wp-cache, but it’s so easy to do, even a caveman can do it.
So with all that said, I’m now ready to be slashdotted or dugg. So if you could just help me out with a test, that would be great.
