    Improve wordpress loading time

    To all wordpress bloggers out there, which one the good one to use?

    I mean in the code. Is it better to use php's include or just copy the contents of that include file and combine it in order to minimize the php execution?

    Any thoughts?

    To add up, how do you optimize your site's loading page?

    If you are having issues with WP loading times, try wp cache http://mnm.uib.es/gallir/wp-cache-2/

    IMO, if you are using WordPress, it's better to let the embedded system do the work. The WP loop works pretty well.

    Yeah i know Shyflower. But my point is, will be better if you just combine the codes of the other pages to make it one. Will it save the php execution from the server?

    I don't know whether caching is a that good idea, might increase server load and can cause potential style issues (it's cached, that's why).

    When I deleted plugins that weren't necessary I found that made my blog loads a lot faster.

    Cache is good as long as you're OK with having to reload your page every time you implement a change. A little nuisance but worth it to save the load time for return visitors.

    I have noticed that too. How many plugins are you using?

    @ kenbrower,

    You're right Sir, I agree with you.

    Using PHP includes will increase the load time but to such a small degree that it shouldn't really matter.

    WP Super Cache seems to be the standard caching system used for WordPress. Caching does have it's limitations though, but in most situations they aren't a problem.

    @ ryanhellyer,

    You get what i mean. Thanks.

    Yeah, supercache is really good. I'm really wondering what's behind this site, http://sixrevisions.com. Take a look at it, and notice the speed....

    Thanks for that link Thing! Anyway, Isn't a server be considered as a factor that could speed up the loading time?

    wordpress load slowly due to many reasons it may load slowly due to the hosting problem if you are using free hosting service then this will happen.
    wordpress load slowly due to Apache problem if you will request your host then they will make fast your server and your blog will load very fast other wise do one thing you need to clear your DNS and clear you browser cache then you will find your site will load very firstly.

    I would suggest eliminating any unnecessary plugins, some can make a significant load on the server.
