    I have a site with lots of pages. The pages have a mix of static content and posts. Many pages have two showpost widgets. A couple have three showpost widgets. Right now I have dozens of saved filters, and I’m using shortcodes with filter name. Is there any performance advantage to just using the Showpost shortcode with parameters? If I just used parameters, does eliminating the call to the database to translate the filtername to parameters yield faster page loads?

    Each filter shows the equivalent shortcode full parameter settings in the first box, and you can use it. But the difference in the performace between the two would not be measurable even if you had dozens of shortcodes in the same post.

    Thanks Weaver. Can’t say enough good things about the Weaver Xtreme Plus environment. I’m showing it this week at our WordPress Meetup Show and Tell session.
