Important: since WordPress 5.3, WordPress already has an index on the autoload field: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/24044

You don’t need this plugin if you run WP >= 5.3

Add Index To Autoload Plugin

This tool will speed up your database queries by adding an index to the “autoload” field.
With this index the query time for the autoload option will not increase with growing table size.
Therefore it helps speeding things up – especially with big option-tables.

Plugin-Overview

This plugin offers four options:

  • A one-click check mechanism to check if indexes on the autoload field exist
  • An option that adds an index to the autoload field
  • One-click index removal
  • Adding a simple wp-cronjob, that periodically checks if the index still exists and notifies you, if it doesn’t.
