YD FAST page update
When using WordPress as a CMS, it is usual to create web sites with a lot of hierarchical pages. When reaching a few hundred pages and using custom permalinks, page updates become VERY slow. Eventually, when reaching about 1000 pages, page management becomes very tedious, because any change in a page takes a few minutes to be saved (during which the site usually comes to a halt because of heavy database load)… when script or database max request times are reached, it becomes impossible to modify anything in a page.
The reason is that rewrite rules for all the blog’s pages are rebuilt everytime something is changed and saved in a page, even if url structure has no reason to change at all.
This very short and simple plugin fixes this. Rewriterules structure will get rebuilt only if the name of the page, or its parent attachment are changed.
Expect hundred-fold improvement in page update delay in the admin for a 1000+ pages blog.
