Optimazing coppermine
« on: May 29, 2014, 09:27:28 pm »

Because I have a shared host and on a shared host CPU time and MySql time are limited (already reached the limit a few times) I did this:

I deleted everything in theme.php and I edited the functions directly in include/theme.inc.php (I have to edit some functions to have the layout I want).

Is asumed that everytime a users is viewing a page coppermine loads template.html,themes.php,style.css,the images and themes.inc.php so I decided to delete all the functions from theme.php to have a smaller size(1KB).At least this way one of the files loding is smaller (theme.php).

Was that a good ideea?
Did I optimize the page this way (smaller page size and consumes less server resources) ?

The reason I am asking is because I don't like to edit theme.inc.php and I want to know if I went to all that trouble for nothing.I proabilby did not optimize coppermine at all.

It is not recommended but as long as you know what edits you made and can adapt the edits for upgrades it won't be a problem. Not sure if it would improve performance at all, you'd have to do benchmark tests or watch page load times in a dev tool. Even if it does improve, it would probably be minimal. Turn on debug for admin and load a couple pages to see what tasks are taking up resources, then go from there.

I won't expect performance improvements, as each theme function is still wrapped in
Code: [Select]
if (!function_exists(...)) {in include/themes.inc.php.

If you define them in theme.php, they get ignored in include/themes.inc.php.
