How to Show Page Load Time and Number of Queries in WordPress

Showing page load time and number of queries in WordPress is a good practice for observing how much time you page takes to load and how many queries are performed. It is something like “30 queries in 0.637 seconds“. Now I’ll show you how to display page load time and number of queries in WordPress.


Open your single.php, page.php, index.php, footer.php or any file and paste the following code:

[code type=”php”]

<?php echo get_num_queries(); ?> queries in <?php timer_stop(1); ?> secs


After pasting the code, save the file and refresh the page. You’ll get the output like “30 queries in 0.637 seconds“.
