Today we purchased the WP eStore and WP eMember plugins.
However, after we installed them, we notice that our website load has slowed down pretty substantially.
We went through and deactivated/deleted the plugins that aren’t in use. But this didn’t really help much.
Is anyone else experiencing/experienced this issue?
Everything else seems to be working great! We’re just not too excited about normal page load on a site that’s normally pretty quick.
Thanks for more info!February 17, 2010 at 11:29 pm #18098
@Codegirl, I am a bit surprised with this one. I personally use these plugins and couldn’t think of a reason why they would slow the site down but it won’t be hard to pin point issue.
Can you please post a link to your site so I can analyze it with Yahoo YSlow.
I will try a few things outlined here:March 10, 2011 at 5:08 am #18099campbella2Member
Hi – I am experiencing the very same thing. It ran somewhat slower when I installed eStore, and now markedly slower with the installation of WP Stamper.
I’ve used YSlow, and it appears there are several instances of java script coming before CSS – not sure if that’s it.
Anything you can do to help out?March 11, 2011 at 2:50 am #18100
The PDF stamper only works in the background after a sale is made. It does not output anything to your web page. So there is no way that the PDF stamper can have an effect on the page load time. The only place it can have an effect is when the customer lands on the “Thank You” page after a payment because thats when the stamper is stamping the PDF file and depending on how large your file is it can take a few seconds to stamp it.
Please post a link to your website so I can check it out.March 25, 2011 at 12:33 pm #18101johngaydonMember
Hi, Since I downloaded a new version of the Wp Estore and Wp Affiliate platforms to fix a problem registering sales, I have noticed a marked slowing down on my blog. I am currently using wordpress 3.0.1 and Wishlist member as well. an upgrade to WordPress 3.1 crashed the blog, so I reverted back.
This happened immediately after loading the latest version you sent of the plug in.
Otherwise, it all works great!March 26, 2011 at 1:15 am #18102
Its really easy to measure if the eStore plugin is slowing your site that much.
Deactivate the eStore plugin then measure your performance using Yslow (take note of your overall score.. write it down somewhere). If you don’t know what YSlow is then read this article:
Remember to note the “Overall performance score” (we don’t want to rely on the ‘Second’ value because they can very based on your server load, internet connection, caching etc. Now activate eStore and do another measurement using YSlow. Take note of your score now. Compare the differences. Do you see a huge difference in your score value (for example, a difference greater than 10)?
This way we are not relying on any hunch or feeling or coincidences (these only lead to unnecessary confusion and time wasting).
