Pimpin’ My WordPress – Part 3 — Speeding up publishing.

Yesterday while publishing a new entry into my blog I started getting PHP timeout scripts. At first I thought it was a plug-in I just installed for testing and removed it, yet publishing was still sluggish. I then remembered a new change I made. I had enabled a boatload of ping servers in wordpress. I went in and removed these ping servers and immediately my site publishing speeds increased back to normal.

So, if you have a large number of ping servers added recently and find your blog publishing is failing it’s very likely this is the problem. Fortunately, there’s a solution and it’s name is “WP-No Ping Wait“. Turns out I wasn’t the only one affected by this and a detailed write up about this issue can be found here: http://asymptomatic.net/2006/02/13/2260/why-posts-…

Additionally, GrabPERF plots the page load of ping-o-matic here: http://www.grabperf.org/homepage.php?page=scatter&…

Finally, here’s my list of ping servers, it’s no wonder my blog was timing out.
