Speed and Drupal 8.1

Submitted by loonyadmin on Thu, 04/21/2016 - 19:43

As some of you may have noticed this website has increased in speed. After some time I took the time to reduce the size of the pictures on this website such that they load faster, but look as good in a browser as before. This way I get two times an A from  GTmetrix as they test a website against Google's Pagespeed and Yahoo's Yslow.

Solving five issues with downsizing

Submitted by loonyadmin on Sun, 04/03/2016 - 10:24

During the last week I made some changes under the hood of this website. I switched over from my own server to a shared hosting account. So I downsized quite a bit. The reason for it was first of all time. I did not have enough time to care about the server.

Of course another big reason was money. A whole server has a high monthly prize and if you do not use the resources to certain extend it does not make up for it.
