Some recent improvements & did you know scenarios

Recommended Posts

Tech Admin

We have been working hard in the background doing some adjustments to the website and user experience and want to give you a little understanding of what we have done, are doing and a few did you know things.

 

  1. We have done some server changes, implemented a different PHP handler, introduced memcache and config updates. This helped tremendously with site peformance.
  2. We then introducted Cloudflare again to help with speed and performance.

    Page Speed Insights

    We've still got some improvements we can do, this is web report from Page Speed Insights, Mobile is needing a little bit more work but we're on it.

    This is GTMetrix,

    The important thing to understand here, is the fully loaded time takes into account the AD's which are being served to guests on the main index, remove the AD's and you obtain a different fully loaded time of around 2 seconds.
     
  3. We have intruduced a higher setting for guest caching, this is set at 3 minutes at the moment but is only a test, it could be set at 10 minutes for better results.
  4. We are looking at image optimisation and will discuss with the team about using webp for better image processing & provide better image file sizes compared to jpg/png for example and superior lossless compression. In addition to images, we should be hosting all images within our resources on the site and not hosting on 3rd party sites (such as photobucket). It reduces the amount of look ups by uploading all images to the site and then having these images served from amazon S3 for example. 
  5. Broken profile images are being changed when we find them, this was a result of a failed S3 setup which @Hells Warrriortakes the blame for. 
  6. Broken links and general clean up has been performed.
  7. We've introduced at the top of the forum a new section called "Our picks" - what is our picks? Our picks is basically a selection of content that is chosen by the team, it is then promoted to social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter) and appears in our picks section as well. Why are we doing this? It brings attention to the topics/articles on the site and brings people to the site (hopefully) to use and stick around.

  8. All software is up to date and shouldn't be presenting any problems.
  9. We still have things going on in the background we are working on as well but no news to share at the moment.
