    I am getting a very slow load on the Media frontpage. What should I do? My site is linked in my signature. Try it out for yourself. I have linked a screenshot of the performance debug page.

    This can be expected when there is a large number of items in the Gallery.

    There is an option which will help:

    "Only show media added within the last X days (Media Home)"
    It's set to 0 by default.

    If you change this value to something like "365" or "730" you should find the media index loads a lot faster. If you choose to only show 365 day's worth of media items in the index, it does not affect finding older images in albums or categories or via search.

    I've known some busy galleries to actually only show 1-4 weeks of images on the media index. It keeps the index page less daunting and makes it more relevant, without hindering discoverability of older stuff.

    Ah. Much better. Thanks! I set it to 60 days. That's still like 168 pages. Thanks for the quick reply.
