That’s it, pretty simple!

  2. Either Network Activate this plugin or activate it on a single site.
  3. That’s it!

Filters

Changes the minimum role for which the GenTime is shown:

add_filter( 'gentime_minimum_role', 'my_gentime_minimum_role' );
function my_gentime_minimum_role( $default = 'install_plugins' ) {

    // See https://codex.wordpress.org/Roles_and_Capabilities for a list of role names
    $role = 'edit_pages';

    return $role;
}

Changes the number of decimals to output:

}

You just activate it and it works without the need for anything else.It couldn’t be simpler 😉 I liked it a lot

Did that object cache have an effect on the back end? Did that PHP 8.2 upgrade change page generation times? Is the server currently bogged down, or am I just impatient? GenTime is so simple and yet so useful. By having basic page generation timer in the admin bar at all times, it really helps to qualify the website speed over time. Don’t underestimate the importance of backend speed. When managing WordPress websites all day, a few 100 ms at every click, makes a difference. GenTime is a stable on the sites I administer now. Highly recommended

Doesn’t bog down the system and works as expected! Better than any other timing plugin I’ve used.

Useful for testing page load speed especially if you have many different page setups. Thanks!

I love Sybre’s plugins. This one is soo simple, soo useful, no idea how this feature is not included in most seo or all-purpose plugins. Highly recommended for people dedicated to speed up their site!
