PHP Speedy and WordPress 2.7

Leon Chevalier — author of the amazing PHP Speedy plugin — has updated it to work with WordPress 2.7.

What This Plugin Does

It signifincantly speeds up the loading time of your WordPress blog by combining all CSS and JavaScript into single files. Database query cacheing combined with this plugin will make your website as fast as it can ever be.

p.s. Leon, have you thought about adding the plugin to the official WordPress repository for easier updating?

    I found that PHP Speedy broke the WP Super Cache, and when I ran them separately, WP Super Cache seemed to improve my load times a lot better.

    Do you use WP Super Cache at all? If so, what are your thoughts on it?

    Hi Kaspars! Are you in contact with the author pf PHP Speedy? It seems hard to contact him :( And all version from 0.5 have serious problems: 0.5.1 isn’t capable of zipping and with 0.5.2 my blog doesn’t load at all :( Does everything work for you?

  3. Kaspars says:

    Andy, I am using the 0.5.2 version of that plugin together with WordPress 2.8-bleeding-edge with no problems.

    As for gzipping — I suggest you do that by using mod_deflate in .htaccess.

    Weird.. I had to replace the jsmin.php now with the newest one from googlecode – finally the minifying works ;) gzipping is still not working but I’m using the ob_gzhandler in the htaccess-file now. Works like a charme ;) In WordPress 2.8 the plugin PHP Speedy seems to become useless anyhow.. the features should be implemented but I had a lot of problems with the latest bleeding-version. Thanks for your help.

    Only thing missing: update of your great tabbed widgets-plugin to make all widgets list (like Ajax Calendar) ;) Thanks!
