I have a website with 10.000 posts... WP Snap alphabetizes the posts and puts it out with WP_Query, but it is slow as hell, which is very frustrating. My question would be: what can I do about it?

Is there any alternative to wp_query? Or is the cause of this problem something else?

    WP-Snap hasn't been updated in over 2 years. Consider using another plugin which is still maintained

  • I know that. Thanks guys... But what different approach? WP Snap gives me everything... Other plugins don't output a horizontal list with links to the posts. That's very annoying. Jun 10 '13 at 13:26
  • If you need all 10k posts, I would expect that sorting 10k posts is going to be slow no matter what. WP-Snap, even if not broken, does a lot of work and appears to replace the main query with one of its own concoction. That may be more than you need. If you want a good answer, the better approach in my opinion is to provide details about what you require, rather than ask (implicitly) how to fix an outdated plugin.

The only answer to this question is: don't use this plugin, because it is outdated. I couldn't write a better code, so I am going to use alternatives like A to Z listing and WP-Glossary. I hope the developer of this great plugin will update the code, because it is a very useful plugin if it could contain more than 1000 posts...

Thanks for your comments.
