Wordpress Speed Optimisation

I ended up going with the WP Super Cache plugin instead, due to this article:


Also, it's worth removing any inactive plugins, plus optimizing your database through phpmyadmin.

I tried a number of other recommendations, but did not really notice any improvement.

I do not use any plugin for optimization, Best option is compressing your site content and use compression technology which will compress your site by 60%+ and your site speed will be increased.

You can compress your site by using .htaccess and If you are using cPanel then login to your cPanel >> Website Optimize >> Enable it.

Here is .htaccess code:
Method 1:
<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/javascript
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/x-icon
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE image/svg+xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-truetype
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-ttf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-otf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-font-opentype
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/vnd.ms-fontobject
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/ttf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/otf
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE font/opentype

# For Olders Browsers Which Can't Handle Compression
  BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
  BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
  BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html

Method 2:
<ifModule mod_gzip.c>
  mod_gzip_on Yes
  mod_gzip_dechunk Yes
  mod_gzip_item_include file \.(html?|txt|css|js|php|pl)$
  mod_gzip_item_include mime ^application/x-javascript.*
  mod_gzip_item_include mime ^text/.*
  mod_gzip_item_exclude rspheader ^Content-Encoding:.*gzip.*
  mod_gzip_item_exclude mime ^image/.*
  mod_gzip_item_include handler ^cgi-script$

My site is compressed by 70%, You can check it on www. varvy.com/tools/gzip And your forum inforum.in is compressed by 79% :eek:



When I don't have time to manually optimise, I use the WP-Optimise plugin. It is also good for a quick tumeup. It clears post revisions and old meta-data, so generally just cleans up Wordpress. Just remember to back your database up first, but I've never had a problem with it.


Thank you so much for the tip about compressing websites. I have done that on my site, and it worked wonders. Now, is there something else we should be doing in addition to this, or is this enough on its own?


If I ever have this issue arise on my own computer, I'm calling you guys. If the optimize plug-in doesn't work for some weird reason.


Thanks for the great advice. As a website owner, I know that everyone wants a faster loading site, but sometimes it's hard to be able to figure out what to do that will be most effective.
Testing my site using gtmetrix my site is showing PageSpeed of A (90%), YSlow Score C(74%), and Fully Loaded Time 2.0 seconds.

All these are above average, but it needed trial and error to get it somewhere near right.

I have a couple of plugins for my WordPress site specifically for speeding it up.

One is Autoptimize, which describes itself - 'Optimizes your website, concatenating the CSS and JavaScript code, and compressing it,' and the other plugin I use is WP Super Cache.


One guy told me that he has a blog specifically for trial and error purposes. It's a guinea pig basically. Before he makes a big change on his regular blog, he tests whatever out on his other blog first.

Sounds a good idea. The only thing is that if the content is very different, what might work on one might not be so good on the other?

But still, where big changes are concerned, a guinea pig blog should help.
