Which plug-ins in WordPress slow down your site?

Old 3 Comments on Which plug-ins in WordPress slow down your site? 74

For my customers who order a website, I make sure that their site is as secure as possible, but customers also have requirements that can be added by installing a plug-in.

But some plug-ins can slow down the loading speed of the site.

To know which plug-ins run off with most loading speed, a plug-in can be installed that will give you an overview of what installed plug-ins decrease the loading speed of your site.

In the back-end of your site you are going to add new plug-in and search for WordPress Plugin Performance Profiler (P3), install and activate him.

Now you can run a range of tests that give you a nice overview of all plug-ins and what impact they have on your site.

Remember after testing to deactivate this plug-in because this plug-in remains otherwise running when loading your site.
