WPWeekly Episode 98 – WordPress 3.0 And WordCamp San Francisco

wordpressweekly1In this golden gate edition of WordPress Weekly, I was joined by Kim Parsell as well as Leland of ThemeLab.com to talk about the stories of the week. This episode was recorded at the same time WordCamp San Francisco was going on and I want to send out a special thanks to James Hicks of TheTechScoop.net for calling into the show from WordCamp San Francisco. James gave a detailed account as to what he was experiencing. His timing couldn’t have been better as James was on the line, Matt Mullenweg walked by and James was able to get Matt to hop on the phone to say hi. Hopefully, next weeks episode will feature a couple of guests who attended WordCamp San Francisco to provide us with a recap as to what took place their.

Kurtis sent in the following question: What if you have so much content between Posts and Pages that you start to notice the site slowing down. Is there any way to resolve that or will I have to leave WordPress and find another alternative? Hosted through GoDaddy.

I responded that he should start using a caching plugin such as WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache. I also suggested hooking up W3 Total Cache to a CDN. Kim weighed in and mentioned that he should start with his plugins. Review all of them, remove the ones he doesn’t need.

If anyone else has suggestions for Kurtis, place them in the comments.
