Super Speedy Sale Page for WooCommerce will Fix the Awful Vanilla WooCommerce Onsale Shortcode!
Super Speed Sale Page for WooCommerce was developed as the answer to one of the (if not thee) most annoying performance problems people come to me with. The WooCommerce ‘on sale’ shortcode. The code inside is really awful for performance, hurting the trifecta of RAM, disk and CPU on your poor wee server. What did your server do to deserve this? What did you do to deserve this?
SSSP for WooCommerce Boosts Performance
A detailed analysis of the regular WooCommerce shortcode can be found here. We’ve optimised and generally cleaned up their code until it was super fast! Uncached database time was cut from 50+ seconds to 0.2 of a second on our million product demo store
- Add a dedicated page for products you have on sale
- Allows users to filter, sort and page through products on sale
- Includes replacement drop-in shortcode for WooCommerce products on sale
How to use
Install and activate the plugin, then visit the settings page where you can copy/paste the initial SQL needed to update the onsale flag. This SQL will also run overnight every night to keep your on-sale products up to date.
To choose which page to use for your on-sale products, visit wp-admin/admin.php?page=wc-settings&tab=products – this is wp-admin -> WooCommerce -> Products.
On that page you’ll find a drop down selector to choose your on-sale page.
Notes on use:
This plugin is incompatible with our premium Faster Woo Widgets plugin which we recommend you use instead. Faster Woo Widgets gives you permalink control over your on-sale products and allows you to choose how your canonical URLs will work or to configure no-index for Google SEO purposes. Faster Woo Widgets is far superior and has other widgets too to improve speed.
