TOPIC: How to Speed up your HomePage

How to Speed up your HomePage 4 months ago #4817

We've got alot of complaint our homepage was too slow. That's why we did the following optimalisation tricks:
- Compress JavaScript and HTMl
- Enable Cache
- Enable APC (server side)
- Enable Memcache
- We changed host (Shared to VPS)
- We've tried optimalisation on images

We already gained a little bit speed on homepage BUT! It was to slow. Then I red somewhere that responsive listing module is slowing up the homepage. By turning it off the speed of the homepage was amazing.

But turning responsive listing off results in a rather empty homepage so I've added the following code:
<reference name="content-bottom">
            <block type="basicproducts/home" name="tab2" template="sm/basicproducts/feature.phtml"> 
			<action method="setConfig">
 				<values>
					<block_title>Versterkers</block_title>
					<block_desc>Bekijk onze nieuwe producten</block_desc>
					<title></title>
                                        <product_source>product</product_source>
                                         <product_ids>346,344,319,317</product_ids>
					<product_order_by>price</product_order_by>
                                        <num_columns>5</num_columns>
                                        <product_limitation>4</product_limitation>
					<product_image_width>250</product_image_width>
					<product_image_height>165</product_image_height>
					<product_price_disp>1</product_price_disp>
					<product_description_disp>0</product_description_disp>                   
					<product_rating_summary>1</product_rating_summary>
					<product_cart_or_status>1</product_cart_or_status>
					<product_addtocompare>1</product_addtocompare>
					<product_addtowishlist>1</product_addtowishlist>
				</values>
			</action>
                  </block>
</reference>


This code is the same code used for "New Products" but you need to change the ID of the Name paramter:
            <block type="basicproducts/home" name="tab2" template="sm/basicproducts/feature.phtml"> 


I've change name="tab1" to name="tab2"

Changes the following code shows other products, choose the ID's of the products you want to show:
<product_ids>346,344,319,317</product_ids>


Hope this helps folks!

Thanks Rudd great idea! If you want to tweak it even further you can load product based on category instead of having to choose individual items. Just replace
<product_source>product</product_source>
<product_ids>346,344,319,317</product_ids>
with

<product_source>category</product_source>
<product_category>REPLACE WITH YOUR CATEGORY ID</product_category>
