I like to speed up the work of WordPress, reduce the load on the server and all that is connected with it.
Today I will tell you how you can reduce the load on the server when writing new posts or edit old ones.
Once you've written a new article and clicked "Publish», WordPress «throws» Home page, updates the database, creates a site map (if you have the plugin) and pings update services from your list. Moreover, it does these operations simultaneously. With a small number of processes is not a big load, respectively. But if your blog has grown out of the 'new', the load can be very large.
I propose a simple solution. In the functions.php file, add the line:
Now WordPress postpone pinging. Ping will only take place after the completion of all previous operations on the publication (edited) post, update a database, etc.
In the latest WP 2.8. * This feature is enabled by default.
