Recent Comments

I added a Recent Comments thing to the blog. It’s right down the sidebar. I’ve actually had the plugin installed quite a while ago. Just never turned it on. Mostly because it’s such an SQL query hog (bumped it up to 44 queries per page from the usual 9). That was, until i had the common sense to re-download updated version of the plugin (the one i had was probably like version 0.1 or something), which is A LOT better, query wise. Down to 24 queries versus the 44 from before. I’m still a bit worried that it’ll overload my server though. Considering the number of visitors i have looking at the site at any given moment.

But then again Spencer has 18 queries for his front page and like 40 for his comment pages and he probably gets a lot more traffic than i do and i’ve never seen his site go down. Then again he might just have a better host. How many queries is too much anyway?

Regardless, if i do start overloading my server or whatever, i’ll probably take off the Recent Comments thing. Just thought i’d turn it on to make things easier for you guys. That way you won’t have to sift through every single post just to see if there’s anything new in the comments.

  7. w00t. i installed a different plugin and now not only do i have a better recent comments thing up, i also have it down to only 12 sql queries for the front page.

    the site was actually dying every once in a while with the 24 queries from before.

    but with the no. of queries down that low, maybe i can add more plugin goodies to the page in addition to the recent comments thing without the whole thing bogging down the server.
