I was wondering if anyone else has experienced a serious performance hit when implementing pagination?
By just using Safari's timeline, I can see my page takes 500ms to generate. After introducing JUST the paginate tag (not including any loops etc), it now takes 1.5s!
Is this normal behaviour? If not, what should I be doing to improve the performance?
EDIT: Thanks for the suggestions regarding caching. I am aware of the cache tag however, the paginated entries are the results of a search query with various filters so I'm concerned that the caching will have little effect. Or am I wrong?
