FLEXIcontent Universal Content Module Speed

4 years 7 months ago #45536 by iamrobert2
Hi,

I am having an issue with FLEXIcontent universal content speed:

http://tg-bases.com/ http://lightpolymers.com.s171316.gridserver.com/

It is the carousel slider. Its a custom build - but just seems to take over 7 seconds for tiny images to load.

The original image is pretty small:
http://lightpolymers.com.s171316.gridserver.com/components/com_flexicontent/librairies/phpthumb/phpThumb.php?src=/images/products/l_3-smartglass.png

Any ideas?

+ FLEXIContent - 2.1.3 - r1824
+ Joomla 3.2

Thanks,

Robert

Hello

use some common logic here ...

it uses phpThumb to create thumbnails,


1. it will make very big difference the size of the original images,


- the larger they are
the more time you need to create thumbnails


e.g. imagine original images being 4 MBs compared to being 200 KBs


2. also the cache maybe too small and thumbnails are not cached for long
(see our performance guide FAQ article for changing phpThumb cache size )

Hi Georgios,

Thanks for that - I increased the size of the cache and it has improved dramatically. I see its a recent FAQ - so I apologize for not checking earlier and wasting your time.

Digging deeper - I have also looked at my server and realized that imagemagick is not able to be accessed by default. So - I will set that up as well.

Cheers,

Robert
