I'm currently rocking X4 with Wordpress, and it works great! http://nicqua.com/blog/

I too would love to see how it works with X5.

WP in XC 4 works just fine. It does require some work though as the theme covered by the module is old not to mention hardcoded in the module so if you want to use more modern/reset WP skin you need to do some recoding of the module and a lot of re-styling. But in general it does work ok

thanks totalrec looks good on your site.....

Would love to give it a try on my dev store but dont really want to pay out until i know its working OK.

My experience with it in X4 was pretty poor (and not being to ok with WP more a Joomla site user/builder) And ended up getting a refund as it just would not work for me

is there a way to get a demo version to put into the dev site........

That a great question. What we need is to either have a demo version, or at least a video showing how it installs and functions. Just a functional demo that customers can see would help tremendously!

off-topic: this website http://wemakeanyshirt.com is slow. getting time 2.95 sec and latency 2.45 sec is acceptable, but not good at all. I don't know the concurrency, if it is about 5 - 10 visitors making normal requests, XC5 is damn slow. My opinion. I could make other shopping cart having light speed about 65 ms page time for concurrency around 500 visitors. Is it a dedicated webserver?

Its hosted on a Godaddy Ultimate unix package.... I am also a bit concerned on the speed but it is better than it was to start with. Still working on it with the help of Tony

The old store still runs on it ok but x5 is slow

There are a few parts of optimization in speed.

1. Change your hardware to fit your needs (cores, RAM, SSD, internet connection, month trafic).

2. Use CDN if you have visitors from different regions/countries.

3. Protect your website from DDoS hardwear and software (Fail2Ban, Iptables)

4. Configure server to your needs (proxy server + webserver + php + mysql)

5. Configure XC to work at maximum performance with these hardware/software configuration (few CSS/JS requests, minify CSS/JS files, use expire headers, gzip, ...)

I learnt myself before having a website you should understand Linux architecture and getting speed from your configuration. Speed means transactions, more visitors, more customers.

Guys, there is already an integration of X-Cart 5 with Wordpress https://www.x-cart.com/extensions/addons/wordpress-in-xcart-5.html

so you might want to give it a try.

Tony.
