  1. Hey just wanted to know if there is some type of tutorial on improving ipb4 web speed. My host/server is perfectly good enough but my website loads in 4 seconds Using pingdom, I was told the following: Improve page performance GRADE SUGGESTION F0 Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) User proximity to web servers impacts response times. Deploying content across multiple geographically dispersed servers helps users perceive that pages are loading faster. F0 Compress components with gzip Compression reduces response times by reducing the size of the HTTP response. Gzip is the most popular and effective compression method currently available and generally reduces the response size by about 70%. Approximately 90% of today's Internet traffic travels through browsers that claim to support gzip. F0 Use cookie-free domains When the browser requests a static image and sends cookies with the request, the server ignores the cookies. These cookies are unnecessary network traffic. To workaround this problem, make sure that static components are requested with cookie-free requests by creating a subdomain and hosting them there. F0 Add Expires headers Web pages are becoming increasingly complex with more scripts, style sheets, images, and Flash on them. A first-time visit to a page may require several HTTP requests to load all the components. By using Expires headers these components become cacheable, which avoids unnecessary HTTP requests on subsequent page views. Expires headers are most often associated with images, but they can and should be used on all page components including scripts, style sheets, and Flash. F36 Make fewer HTTP requests Decreasing the number of components on a page reduces the number of HTTP requests required to render the page, resulting in faster page loads. Some ways to reduce the number of components include: combine files, combine multiple scripts into one script, combine multiple CSS files into one style sheet, and use CSS Sprites and image maps. C80 Avoid URL redirects URL redirects are made using HTTP status codes 301 and 302. They tell the browser to go to another location. Inserting a redirect between the user and the final HTML document delays everything on the page since nothing on the page can be rendered and no components can be downloaded until the HTML document arrives.
  2. It's an NDA. We like to give our developers the right access without getting in there way.
  3. It's installed under "/public_html/public" maybe I should shift it all in just /public_html/ ?
  4. Hello, How can I remove the "forum" from my community url: /forums/forum/5-announcements/ Because when I click on a topic it does change to this /forums/topic/4903-how-to-use-features/ I have done some customisation such as made pages default application as we have a homepage. We we have changed /home into "index.html".

  8. Hello, Couple of things: - How to generate a table via the Table helper (similar to the one in the ACP Members page). Trying to create one from scratch messes up on the responsive view. - Adding routes when developing plugins, specifically for the Account Settings page stuff. - Pagination + tables, how to take data from the DB and display it in a paginated table, or at the very least, paginated ul/ - How to handle Ajax request calls to certain routes, both in the frontend and backend code
  9. Thank you for your response, overall I have no problems with anything else. All the best!
  10. I think it's a good step but, I pay for something to come back and download the updates. However I'm forced to make a couple of posts before I can access my paid files isn't so flattering.
