Full Version: Side Boxes - which plugin to choose?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I tested a few plugins that add the side panel. Unfortunately, each performed about 10 queries. Is it possible to obtain an identical result with fewer queries?
As on your other thread, your MySQL base got problems.
And labrocca's is the one and only side boxes plugin.

Please upgrade your hosting.
It is possible to obtain an identical effect not using plugins? Maybe then the number of queries to decrease?
Depends on what you want in the sidebox. If you just want ads or a search form that's easy but if you're going to add dynamic content like latest posts you'll have to use a plugin. You can use my plugin and turn off boxes in the portal settings if you want to cut down on queries but the plugin is the most optimized you'll get.
