Not Supported Template Edits  

For forum admnistrators who are trying to reduce the number of http requests in order to speed up their forum and ultimately increase their pagespeed grade, I have a quick solution.

Subforum statusicons are not that important to display.
But if you remove them entirely how can your users know if a subforum has new posts?



SIMPLE:
[1] Login to admincp: Style Manager > Edit templates > Forum Home Templates > forumhome_subforums
[2] Replace all the content with the content I provided.

It's not a mod, but template edit.

On the other hand, just tested it on my site and it looks quite nice, after I deleted commented part.

There will be no difference in style of your subforum icons just apply it

Tested
Before : 185 Request
After Applying: 169 Request
But unfortunately page load was almost same for both no difference

Maybe for you there is no difference, because your internet connection is good.
But for others, less http requests means less time spent to download your resources when accessing your forum.
With other words faster loading of your forum, less bandwidth.

I test page load speed of website using my own tools were i have 1gps or 512kBps internet connections it doesn't matter

Page Load can be effectively optimized only with Compression of JS , IMAGE , HTML
http request doesn't helps much as you think anyway thanks for sharing ...

Regards,

Ok, to add more to ramesh_umk3 comments, note that major load page speed depends primarily on the web server, and what modules are running on it to optimize pages contents. so if your server has Zend OpCache to cache php files and Memcached or memcache to cache Database data then you are 700% times faster than any shared hosting server. Note that extra modules such as Mod Pagespeed or varnish will also make bigger change on page load speed...

Yes, it is true that http request will reduce the time required to load a page, but does that make any difference for those who have slow internet??

The answer is NO.

Thanks for sharing

Until I will fully learn what template variables I need and how they work, I thought I would release this to get some feedback.
The purpose is to know if my effort would be enough aprecieted to continue the effort of making a plugin that will optimise vbulletin.

I'm planning to include in a mod:
> autogenerate a sprite with all the images
> serve all css with a single http request (not combine all css in a single file) and cache the result in a gzipped file
> serve all javascript with a single http request and cache the result in a gzipped file
> remove unnecessary images

A total of 3-5 max http requests when loading your forum is my goal.

of course your effort is appreciated and no body say not!!

It is just want to put things right so no one get confused about the major factor that causes pages to perform best

waiting to know how you are going to do this good stuff though...

if you can combine all js and css and main images individually together, then it would be great!!

The options to combine all javascript in a single request and all css (2 http requests to serve all) are hardcoded in my test forum.
The misfortune is that I need to learn how to combine all and make a xml file to create a mod.
Because it would be bad for most owners to manually edit php files to implement this optimisation.

My other priority is how can a hacker exploit this.

Pretty sneaky there, removing the subforum icon & replacing it with a symbol.
