I am having an issue with my plugin I'm developing. After using the GoDaddy P3 Plugin profiler, it shows that is taking up a large amount of runtime, but the plugin itself is very minimal.
It just provides a few shortcodes and sanitizes the data entered into them. It basically takes a url, pulls an ID from it, uses an API to get an array of values in JSON format, then takes several of those values from the array and displays them in a div.
I'm not making any queries against the WP database, so I know that's not the issue. It may be the amount of time the API is taking (High School Cube) to return the call, but I'm not sure. I've made sure to follow all of the plugin documentation to the dot and have a very clean, organized file structure with a strict style guide.
Can anyone explain to me why this may be showing up as slow?
