Large Number of WordPress Posts

How to Better Control WordPress Cron Jobs?

Load testing for WordPress functionality

Extra themes – ok or bad?

I know I am a newbie here, but I’m just wondering, if you keep extra themes in your WordPress setup, will it add bloat to your site? Can these other themes provide a security risk even if they aren’t activated? I imagine it’s best to delete any theme that aren’t in use, but I’m noticing […]
