Troubleshooting Plugins

February 4, 2014 - wordpress

If your site is simply too slow, try installing the Plugin Performance Profiler (P3). (Yes, it’s somewhat ironic to
use a plugin to diagnose a problem with plugins.) This plugin will scan your site (automatically visiting its pages,
or allowing you to visit specific pages in a separate window) and report how your plugins affected the site’s load time.
Once it’s installed, you’ll find its scanner under Tools ➤ P3 Plugin Profiler. Press Start Scan to begin. When the
scan is complete, you’ll see a report like the one in Figure 6-3. There’s more detailed information behind each of the
report’s tabs, but the most important information is in the pie chart: which plugins took the longest to load?
