Slides from Word Camp Raleigh
Members of the TayloeGray team went to Raleigh today and Andrew presented at a conference on the WordPress publishing framework. WordPress is one of the open0source frameworks, that we use to build client sites. The conference includes three tracks of WordPress content and plenty of networking.
Andrew spoke about improving the performance of WordPress based sites using the built in tools.
Here is the abstract:
“Speed Up Your Site Using Transient API for Caching”
Transient API is a great way to cache sidebar items and other fragments (HTML sections) of your site that don’t need to be created on every page load.
With a simple change to your template, you can dramatically reduce the load on your database and still have a dynamic site.
The presentation will include a basic overview of the transient API and how to use it in your template. Examples will include caching the tag cloud, most commented posts, and other side bar items.
