WordPress comes with everything you need to create a great website, but the right plugins can make it exceptional.
Query Monitor is a debugging plugin for anyone developing with WordPress. It has some advanced features not available in other debugging plugins, including debugging of AJAX calls, REST API requests, redirects, and the ability to narrow down its output by plugin or theme.
For complete information, please see Query Monitor’s GitHub repo.
Testing your WordPress site? This plugin allows you to display memory, page load time and query count in the footer of your site on both the front-end and within admin.
This plugin is partly based upon the WP Query Counter by Steven Word (http://www.stevenword.com/plugins/wp-query-counter/) and has been customised for my testing needs.
If you’d like to contribute to the plugin you can find it on GitHub: https://github.com/mikejolley/WP-Page-Load-Stats
This tool allows you to monitor, dequeue and requeue scripts and styles that are enqueued on your site. It is designed for frontend performance engineers who want to view and manage all assets enqueued on any page and control the minification and concatenation themselves.
For background, please read Chris Coyier’s initial request.
Warning: This plugin makes it easy to break your site. Don’t use this unless you know what you’re doing.
CPU performance testing:
This plugin does various calculations and string manipulations on your PHP webserver
and your MySQL database server. To further test the MySQL server, a sequence of MySQL
inserts, selects, updates and deletes are performed in a separate custom database table
(we do not use your WordPress tables for this).
WordPress Inspector will inspect your site for speed, seo, security and performance. Your WordPress URL, Theme and Plugins are sent to https://wordpress.inspector.io where we run different benchmarks and tests on your WordPress and tell you how it performs.
Includes a complete security and exploit scanner which scans your WordPress for potentially broken plugins or themes. Removing broken plugins is a big win in maintaining a high performance WordPress site.
- Speed: Checks for issues causing slow speed
- SEO: Checks for any issues causing SEO rankings to drop
- Security: Tests your WordPress for vulnerabilities and security issues
- Performance: Tests performance of your WordPress
- Theme: Tests your theme for any security issues
- Plugins: Identify broken plugins or themes
WordPress Inspector includes a scanner which will look for broken plugins and themes and recommend you alternatives. It will also give you recommendations to improve performance.
