createit-pl saidYeah, nginx + proxy_cache stuff would do it as well. We have a simpler setup as in all previews are hosted on the same server/wp network install so a caching plugin was the easier solution for us. BF
one with only nginx installed, acting as reversed proxy. This is extremely fast and supereasy to manage
amen The best solution is the one that fits you best
Why not using Super/Total cache instead ? with page cache enabled and mod_rewrite, there won’t be any php/mysql involved at all since it would be exactly like serving a static html page. BF
We were having hard time with Super/Total cache and any other plugins like that. The main problem was, that it was operating on the same abstraction layer as the rest of WordPress content. Since we have multiple servers around the world, it was a management nightmare to find where given content comes from, if it’s still from cache or not etc.
What worked for us, was setting two servers (well in fact more :-)): one with full environment for WordPress (mysql, apache and other stuff) and the other one with only nginx installed, acting as reversed proxy. This is extremely fast and supereasy to manage

Please get in touch if you want to have it done by pros
Well, might be interesting <sits comfortably and grabs popcorn>
@ruben – that’s indeed great work with “Huge”, congratz
@charlie – I get your point and I do agree with it, but that’s not really the kind of niche I had on mind I didn’t really mean technical avangarde, rather “topic” of the theme. I mean, whenever I see a potential buyer wondering on ThemeForest, he looks exactly for the theme designed for his purpose. If the guy has a flower shop – first thing he types into search is “flower shop”. I reckon he wouldn’t really come up with the idea to find a multipurpose theme and then adapt it to his needs, you need to have some technical skills to be able to imagine that you can do that.
On the other hand – from my experience, most buyers here are small web agencies, not a final user/owner of the website; they know that even church theme could be used for a grocery shop website.
But anyways, the question is – is it better to target those end users, trying to shoot exactly in their needs or produce another multipurpose site with few flavours? Guess noone knows that?
We are now thinking about new layout to create for ThemeForest and just had a huge fight on what’s better to go for: mainstream or niche? I mean, looking at Avada (congratz guys!), if you do well, you do REALLY well. But lets face it: there are so many top-notch mainstream, multi-purpose templates and themes, that it’s next to impossible to have a success on this field. So maybe finding good niche would be better way then? Say – theme for flower shop? Grocery shop? Book shop? Those are less crowded, making your chance for bestseller significantly higher… but then again, are there enough potential buyers? What’s the point of being the best with 5 copies sold?
Confused! Did anyone make this kind of analysis before? Cons and pros of both ways? Wanna share yout thoughts?
