How much “slower” will my site be if I use Genesis Plugins like Simple Edits and Hooks? Wondering if it is better to hard code these things into the function.php.
I am just still struggling to figure all this out. Tried to find video explaining it but not much on it.
I have quite a few Genesis plugins running in my Genesis sites and they don’t slow it down at all. I think because they are specifically designed to go with the Genesis Framework – that’s why they work so well. Now, if I go and put a non-Genesis plugin in there – that’s the one I normally have a problem with. Just try them. Test them out for a few days.
There’s virtually no difference between putting code in your functions.php and running the same code in a plugin. I think WordPress.com is running about 500 plugins and it’s reasonably fast. Speed is more a function of what the actual plugin code is and attempts to do than the number of plugins you run.
Appreciate your feedback.
