WordPress: Increase Your Memory?

WordpressHow to get more intensive plugins to work?
How to Get Better response from your WordPress site?

Recently I was working with a few plug ins that stopped working when I pulled out the code (I’m going to be listing). Now the code didn’t come in the original config.php file. It was added at the suggestion of others. However I wasn’t really sure if it was ever working between a slow database and a number of other factors.

I had removed it for the meantime thinking that it was maybe putting too much weight on my site. That wasn’t the case, though once removed I did notice some of my list-creating plugins weren’t functioning anymore (the pages would come up blank)

After adding the code back in, they worked without a hitch.
This lead me to believe that “yes” we can control a portion of our memory by override a few settings
(to the dismay of your ISP, no less)

1- Open your config.php file in a Text Editor

2- scroll down to the part that says:

define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);

3- now add the following code right below it so it looks like this

define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);
define( ‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’128M’ );

4- That’s it – SAVE and RE-UPLOAD

Oh just in case you were wondering about the plug in I mentioned it was

“List category posts”

(the plug in pulls huge lists onto a single page for categorizing, say for instance “action films” or a list of “trailers”…etc. For it to work, the out of the box memory setting wasn’t sufficient enough)
