As I have announced already, I will going to benchmark various aspects of WordPress and plugins used. Before I proceed publishing benchmark results I am working on right now, I want to describe the benchmark setup I will use, WordPress versions and plugins that will be installed. So here is the test environment.
Roles and Capabilities in WordPress are added long time ago, but they still didn’t fully replaced user levels. Finally, levels are marked as deprecated, and should be avoided. So, it’s a good time to make a final break from them, and upgrade plugins to use capabilities.
