I've noticed my load times are approx 5.5-6 seconds when doing gtmetrix tests, the vast majotiry of which is the WU poll : wuupdate.php which can take approx 4.8-5.5 seconds to complete.
is there any code that could be used to check the date of the last poll and if it was within a certain time frame (maybe listed in settings1.txt 30-60 minutes perhaps) then the poll is ignored and read from the cached txt files? Just a thought.
Thanks again for the template updates!
i use fhe gtmetrix figures for when i make a change or look to improve it can be somewhat an obsession its a bit like tweaking a car engine to squeeze every last bit of performance.. anyway WU could that be path between your server and wu server? best way to approach that is revert to a cron job but the current wu file should only update 15 minutes in theory its based on a filemtime if older than 15 minutes.
also if you have access to the .htaccess file on your server then you can really make your server fly not just for this template but its a risky area if your not familiar some servers reject certain htaccess functions.
anyway as for the changes to the template it really is now almost all just css and php for all the visual elements and almost 20years of using css is beginning to really pay off in this template visually .
my other project half done is a smart home automation dashboard im doing for a neighbor who has gone nuts on home automation..
probably release the newer version in the morning i just finished adding the translations in as now only 12 languages are supported so makes life easier for checking..
