Speed up your blog by caching custom queries

Simply paste the following code where you need to execute a custom query to the database. Don't forget to update the query on line 5!

// Get any existing copy of our transient data
if ( false === ( $special_query_results = get_transient( 'special_query_results' ) ) ) {
    // It wasn't there, so regenerate the data and save the transient
     $special_query_results = new WP_Query( 'cat=5&order=random&tag=tech&post_meta_key=thumbnail' );
     set_transient( 'special_query_results', $special_query_results );

// Use the data like you would have normally...
