Re: All setting use cache
leoleoleo (and everyone) put this line into bb-config.php (before the “stop editing” part)
$bb->load_options = true;
That should slice at least 100ms off that time and reduce the queries by half. I still don’t understand why it’s not the bbPress default.
“Forum is category” is not needed under bbPress 1.0 which does category forums internally.
Also, the bb-gzip plugin is only necessary if your server does not already compress pages, which is rare these days, so make sure you are not duplicating the effort.
Some of my plugins are still not optimized for 1.0 so they might be slower or cause more queries than under 0.9
