A Lighter and Faster Frontpage

The site's traffic and hits is at an all time high and the database is getting pounded, and that's the reason why we are getting database errors.

(On a future post, I will tell you how many MILLION of page views we are serving each month)

My OoompaLooompa's are working hard to optimize the server, but in the meantime we have to cut the crap on the homepage to deal with this.

To lighten the load, I have removed these blocks of content from front page:

- Latest Forum posts (which are mostly Personals anyway)
- Recent comments (sidebar)
- Promoted Posts (replaced by Ratings page)

You should be seeing a faster loading of the homepage because of this and hopefully this will help the database survive the pounding.

nice, i notice nga mas mabilis magload sa mobile even nka data lng ako..
can i suggest na itrt if pwd kahit "responsive" ung frontpage. Kasi medyo malapad yung page kapag nka mobile.

I am working on making the frontpage mobile responsive. We are using tables to present the Latest Stories and Blogs that's why it's wider than the mobile screen. Will work on this.

Good job Admin! Pero hindi pa siguro well done.

1 vote for the recent comments to be back on PSE frontpage.
Its one way to know what's the latest talk about in this site. Its interesting to see the subject of every comment whether its worth reading for(by clicking it) or to shrug it off coz it doesnt catch your attention fully.

Changes are for the better. .cheers to that. .
