    Phil Marx: Lightweight use of transients

    WordCamp Berlin 2017Speaker: Phil Marx

    May 17, 2017 — WordPress Transients API is a powerful tool for caching data with an expiration date. But you always have to have a look on the database the transients are stored in.

    Transients can mess up your and your clients database without any benefit. A poor implementation of transients can slow down the database and consequently the webpage instead.

    I want to raise awareness for a lightweight way to use the Transients API. Additionally you’ll get an approach to reduce queries and fragmentation of the database.
