How to troubleshoot WordPress performance

How to troubleshoot WordPress performance

These are the slides from a talk given at WordCamp Halifax 2017.

Have you ever had a client come up to you and ask why a WordPress page was slow to load? We’ve all had that happen at some point or another. Especially nowadays with the increased importance of page load times! (Everything has to be fast fast fast!)

But what do you do when someone asks you to fix such an issue? It can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. The issue could be anywhere. (It really can!)

So how can you troubleshoot what’s going on? There are a lot of tools at your disposal to help you figure things out. But that doesn’t mean that you’re any closer to knowing what’s going on.

This is what this talk will help you with. We’ll look at the tools that you can use to solve this tricky issue. But we won’t stop there either We’ll also go over how to interpret what these tools are telling you. Because that’s how you’ll get to the root of the issue so that you can fix it.
