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:
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 :-/
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 –
