Top Tip #2 Use the Query Monitor Plugin to Monitor WordPress Page Load Speeds Live

Query Monitor Plugin to Monitor WordPress

With the Query Monitor Plugin, you can monitor your WordPress page speeds from your admin panel. It is constantly available and ‘on’ so you can see what is happening.

Query Monitor is the developer tools panel for WordPress. It’s a plugin that enables you to inspect and debug many aspects of your site, including:

  • Database queries
  • PHP errors
  • Hooks and actions
  • Enqueued scripts and styles
  • Theme template files
  • Languages and translations
  • Rewrite rules
  • Block editor blocks
  • HTTP API calls
  • and much more…

I add it to every WordPress website that I build and maintain. It helps me spot problems and easily compare sites on the same web host server. Query Monitor focuses on presenting information in a useful manner, for example by showing database queries grouped by the plugins, themes, or functions that are responsible for them. This allows you to efficiently determine which plugins, themes, or functions are performing poorly.

It’s also free to install and use. Just search for Query Monitor in the plugin Directory from your WordPress admin panel.
