Notes About SPIP Publishing System
SPIP is a French publishing system. SPIP provides a good basic system for publishing your website, and there are also a lot of plugins which extend the functionality of SPIP.
The basic installation of SPIP has acceptable performance. However, we have found that the DW2 and BeeSpip plugins may dramatically reduce your website's performance (by at least a factor of 10 in some cases that we've seen). This can lead to unsatisfactory performance for visitors to your website. It may also require you to upgrade your account to a plan which includes a higher CPU usage allotment.
If you find that your SPIP-based website is running more slowly than expected, see if removing the DW2 and BeeSpip plugins improves the performance.
