Search Tags Plugin Performance Improvement

Search Tags Plugin Performance Improvement

Loïc Mahé brought to my attention a performance issue with the search tags plugin (it’s not noticeable in wordpress implementations with a small number of tags, but is much more noticeable for folks with 1000+ tags).

So I took a look at the queries I wrote for searching tags and realized they were incredibly inefficient.So I rewrote them and performance has greatly improved.

The positive here is that search on Pink Cake Box is now noticeable faster. For example a search across Wedding Cakes is not greatly improved…

Thanks Loïc!
