    Hello,

    I am using the front end plugin on a site that uses the s2Member plugin as well for a “members-only” section. The client wanted most of WP's post editing functionality on the front end of the site so I found this plugin to be a great alternative to a lot of custom coding.

    Problem is it seems to slow the site down to a crawl. I've tried all different kinds of caching and Apache mod_gzip / mod_deflate compression and deactivated / reactivated all plugins to test for performance bottlenecks. The only one that made a difference was the WPUF plugin. When disabled, the load time for a page went from 14 agonizing seconds to 4.

    If anyone has run into this kind of problem please drop me a line. For the author of WPUF, Tareq – I've posted load time tests from http://webpagetest.org. I'd like to at least do even more with WPUF and possibly purchase the pro version, but I can't continue to use it if I can't get the site load times under control:

    Plugin disabled: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130930_G3_TAY/ (4 secs)
    Plugin enabled: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130930_00_SYH/ (14 secs)

    Comparison: http://www.webpagetest.org/video/compare.php?tests=130930_00_SYH,130930_PZ_SV4

    You'll see that the time to first byte is the main problem.

    Thanks again for any help.

    Hello There,

    Yes, free version has some loading issue. Unfortunately, Tareq is passing super busy time and will not be able to release next upgrade version with in couple of weeks.

    However, PRO version doesn't have this issue. Guaranteed.

    Which version of the plugin you are using? The latest version doesn't have
    any loading issue. The issue was in previous version.

    Tareq,

    I'm using what I believe is the latest: 1.2.3. I had an older version of your plugin at first and then updated it to make sure that it wasn't a bug or feature from the old version causing problems.

    Mahi mentioned that the older versions do have some speed issues? If you had an idea of where I could look to optimize it that would be great.

    Yes, the older version had the speed issue and it's been fixed and optimised as much possible in 1.2.3 and you shouldn't face any speed problem. It's also confirmed by many users. Don't know where is it troubling you :-/

    Tareq,

    Thanks for your response. Unfortunately the upgrade didn't help in my case. Are there any caveats or things I should try to avoid while using the plugin that could cause performance problems? Like maybe it doesn't play well with some other plugins?

    Thanks again –
    Jeff
