Speed up WordPress with Gears for Internet Explorer

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Gears is a little addition to your regular web browser that speeds along the way you use online applications like WordPress, making them more like the applications you run from your desktop like Word, Excel, iPhoto or Keynote. It does that by copying essential files over from the web to your computer so that every time you do something new, your computer doesn't need to pull 100% of the information from the web, every single time In the case of WordPress, that means that you can glide through tasks quicker than you could without Gears, whether you're using a blog, or self hosting your own WordPress So how do you get it up and running? This short video will show you how to get Gears installed in your browser of choice So the first thing you want to do is head to and when you're there - click on "Install Gears" Read through the terms and conditions if you feel that you must, and when you're good to go click on "Agree and download" and Internet Explorer will throw out a warning for you. Click up here for the options and choose "Download file" That's going to open up, and just click "Run" and you'll see that it runs automatically Click "Run" again and the bar will start doing its thing. Once its done you can restart your browser, and then you're going to want to head to WordPress So in WordPress, look for the Turbo button next to your name top right in the dashboard and then you're going to click on "Enable Gears" from this tools menu here. That's going to say "Do you trust this site?" - We do, because it's our blog, so I'm going to click "Yes" and then click "Allow" Then I'll see that updates, and this can take a while - I've actually sped this up, but once it's done you'll have a souped-up blog that's much quicker than before
