Running a slick install of WordPress helps your readers and your hosting. So what can you do to improve load times and ease the strain on your server? Here are the plug-ins we have found useful.

  1. WP Cleanfix

    WP CleanFix is an all in one tool for check, repair, fix and optimize your WordPress blog. Amongst other things it will enable you to Check/Remove:
    • for unused UserMeta
    • for Post Revision and Trash
    • Auto Draft Posts
    • Edit Post Lock
    • for unused Post Meta
    • for unused Tags
    • for Posts without Authors
    • Pages without Authors
    • for Attachments without Post/Page
    • for unused Categories
    • for unlink Categories (terms)
    • for unlink Categories Taxonomy
    • for unapproved and Trash comments
    • for spam comments
  2. WP Smush.it

    Reduce image file sizes and improve performance. Every image you add to a page or post will be automatically run through Smush.it behind the scenes. You don’t have to do anything different.
  3. WP Super Cache
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-cache/
    This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts.
