Hello hello beloved friends of FM Design! Very Happy

I have begun this topic to kick-start the process of discussion for speed and optimization for Forumactif Edge.

I would recommend this be a topic for general discussion, instead of actual support only; therefore, it is placed in the main forum for FAE.
  • In evaluating much of the criteria for FAE, I have noticed several things in evaluation of domains using FAE. I hope this can provide all of us insight for how this theme operates on our forums and be able to prepare it better for the web.
  • Keep in mind that optimization and speed-boosting means a lot to many people, and if you want people to have a good experience using your forums, it is better to speed it up to avoid lag.
  • Most Desktops will handle requests for FAE quickly, but I have noticed a growing trend of some forums using FAE on mobile devices having a slowdown or lag, especially with more plugins.





Here are some things for discussion then:
  • Hosting images from a cookie-less domain (Servimg, Imgfast, and Illiweb, both FM's core image hosting sites, have cookies on each of those domains).
  • Hosting plugins, CSS, and JS on a CDN (content delivery network) and what network do you use.
  • Making images and resources hosted across multiple domains instead of a single domain. (Much of our images are hosted on the same 1-3 image download sites... 10 or more would be better.)
  • Static resources not containing a query (question marks in URLs when not necessary to have)
  • Inhibiting response codes, especially 307s or 302s on some domains (internal/external redirects).
  • Minimizing the use of images, but improving the overall design (combining images and using image maps).
  • Reducing or combining scripts such as JS and CSS, minifying, etc.
  • Minimizing requests for images and resources by modifying expiration times.
  • Any other things?

I'm hosting most of my custom CSS on dropbox because FAE takes a lot of the character limits from the built in CSS, but I don't feel a difference on the speed. I think the less a board depends on scripts, the faster it'll be, but I do love the extra features that FM doesn't have but those codes provide.

Honestly I think it's pretty quick, but machine and connection speed will always be a factor that may or may not help.
