Of course, the Thesis documentation is absolutely rock solid, and has gotten a big boost recently with the addition of Derek Halpern to the Thesis team as well as the talents of a certain girlie . You’ll find detailed documentation for every Thesis hook and filter along with a growing list of specific how-to’s based around commonly used design elements. Again, being around for two years longer is a big advantage when it comes to things like documentation, but you definitely have to be impressed by the docs that Thesis offers.
@Amit I’m currently making some design changes and as soon as it’s done…Will be moving to VPS…Already have VPS purchased from KnownHost .
Hostgator Baby plan is good enough to hold 20K/per day visits…Though you should make sure to use any good cache plugin like W3 total cache or Super cache plugin .
Rest, make sure not to use too many plugins and too many php calls…Most of the time server goes down due to high execution time of any script…So try to keep your theme as simple and list of plugins to as low as possible…Also try this plugin P3 plugin performance profiler , which will help you to find out which plugin is consuming maximum resources…
Some excellent tips however if you or a client has many images, I would not recommend changing the default directories structure. First, the search isn’t impacted by the images being in different directories. It’s a database search and not a server search through WordPress and numbers does up database queries. Second, most server Is have restrictions as to how many files can go into a single directory. I’ve had clients have terrible trouble over loading a single directory with too many files. For the casual blogger this isn’t a big deal. For photobloggers or image intensive sites, it is.
