Make your blog super fast with W3 Total Cache plugin

I have recently installed the W3 Total Cache plugin, and it has made a tremendous difference. I have no specific metrics, but the feeling I have is as if it loads at least three times faster!! WOW!

What makes the biggest contribution is CDN (content delivery network), which I set up on a subdomain. It is not the easiest thing to do and it took a couple hours of tweaking to get it just right. I mostly followed the instructions found here:

I also got some hints from How To Install W3 Total Cache Tutorial – Setup Guide and How To Install W3 Total Cache 0.9 Setup Guide.

In order to make it work for me, I specifically did the following things slightly differently:


How to set up “Your Own URL Shortener” (YOURLS)

Keeping up appearances

There was something that annoyed me for some time: whenever I tried to copy-paste an Internet address written in Greek, the copied text would not appear in Greek; it would appear in some weird coding, where non-Latin characters were replaced by the ASCI code equivalent of the characters. That would (a) take up too much space and (b) appear gibberish and no-one could tell what it meant.

For example, what do you make of the following mess?




WordPress CKEditor with native browser spelling

If you’re using WordPress for blogging, then you should check out the plugin CKEditor for WordPress. There’s a nice demo of what it looks like

Regarding spelling, CKEditor has its own spell checker and also SCAYT. However, some bloggers may prefer to use the browser‘s embedded spell checker. For example, I use the “English & Greek” dictionary with Firefox, which really saves time as it checks spelling in two languages at once.

In order to be able to use the functionality of the embedded spell checker, you need two things: re-enable the embedded spell checker, which is disabled by default after CKEditor’s installation and then re-enable the browser’s original right-click context menu. That’s how you do it:

  1. Goto CKEditor settings, in wp-admin
  2. Goto “File Editor” option on the menu on the left.
  3. Make sure you’re editing “ckeditor.config.js”
  4. Goto the end of the file and add the following two lines, after the existing text.
  5. Save, done!

CKEDITOR.config.disableNativeSpellChecker = false;
CKEDITOR.config.browserContextMenuOnCtrl = true;

Now, a red curly line will appear every time the embedded dictionary does not recognize a word you type. With right-click, you see CKEditor’s context menu. With ctrl-right-click, you see the browser’s context menu, which includes correction suggestions!!
