    This isn't so much a 'have you seen this feature' post as one that goes some way to explaining why interacting with XenForo is such an immediate, pleasurable experience.

    The following is screen-grabbed from Google Webmaster Tools.

    Good job on that, not only it will help admins using xenforo rank better in search engines (now speed is considered a seo factor by google) but also and most importantly will provide a more pleasant navigation for users. (y)

    That would partly be down to the lack of images.

    Please dont' change it ;) :D

    Did you minify the js and css yet ?
  6. Kier

    Kier XenForo Developer Staff Member

    No. It's gzipped, but not minified. I suspect fairly dramatic savings once that happens.

    Over time please don't do like all other software and create bloat. If you can keep this up during the life of this product, you have my lifetime respect :)

    Gzipped through Apache or PHP? :)
  12. Kier

    Kier XenForo Developer Staff Member

    HTML and CSS through PHP (XenForo itself controls that) and JS through Apache config.

    Is this XF going to work with Nginx without any issues?
    Or do you consider using XF on Nginx?

    Why wouldn't it?
    As soon as you manage the fastcgi processes by yourself, there won't be any problem.

    They're using Apache, but I'm sure it would be pretty easy to get things working on nginx. The hardest part would be doing all the URL rewriting stuff. (I've never worked with nginx so I don't know how that type of stuff is implemented - it may just work as-is.) :)

    Few points
    1. What are the server specs that this site is run on? This will make a big difference because majority of members here will be on a shared or low-spec vps.
    2. Would love to see an updated pic since the server has been hammed pretty good recently. It would be nice to see the loading speed stays in that range.
    3. I'm setting up a new server that use litespeed instead of Apache?Is it supported?

    Kier XenForo Developer Staff Member

    Our rewrite is incredibly simple, and if you can't rewrite URLs for whatever reason, we support that too.

    Everything is managed via a single controller, right?

    Lightspeed is identical for compatibility with apache, to my knowledge. Even the lightspeed website states that.
