    Cool, appreciate it.. Long way to go. I still haven't really started messing with the .TPL files much but I'll be jacking them up in Dreamweaver soon enough lol trying to use as much css and as little images as possible..

    I just ran a GT Metrix on the site.. not bad for no cloud flare or anything like that, no optimizations yet.. just out of the box w/ the minor theme changes.

    If you ever decide to work on any of those items, please consider submitting a pull request 🙂 glad to know we're doing pretty okay though 😛


  • I'm still thinking of using NodeBB perhaps.

    Currently I'm using the IPS Suite (Invision Board). After trying to get NodeJS (Socket.IO) to communicate successfully with IPS ... and having less and less luck ... this solution looks a little better.

    shrugs

    Maybe someday I'll think of something that'll have a need to use IPS and NodeBB.

    I fixed the optimize image one cause all i needed to do was a re-save 🙂 got 0% extra for it lol..

    CloudFlare demo went so-so.. I don't think it's going to be worth the hassle since it's already a cloud-based service.. redundancy maybe but speed wasn't worth it so I deleted the post i started 🙂

    @OutlawedOffroad -- we use CloudFlare on our end. NodeBBs cannot be accelerated by CloudFlare, as they do not proxy web sockets correctly.

    Support has even said they won't, and if they did, it would only be for paid plans, so boooo...

    That solves that.. I noticed immediately it was a web socket issue after all the hassle last week with it on CentOS. Figured better to just unscrew that lightbulb and move on.

    Just got home from taking the kid to the doctor office.. Some batshit crazy lady freaked out in the waiting room after she lost a verbal confrontation with me.. I guess her husband is a doormat. I'm not. Old school rocker here and I call it like it is, she wasn't used to that lol.

    Cold enough here in NY I'll pass on a more northern location.

    I was born in Florida so this is already completely unnatural for me!

    I'm trying to figure out why you have a B on your report... I have an A, we're using the same application. I see where it says Inline small CSS and Query Strings. What about the Deferring parsing of JavaScript?

    I prob would have another A if it weren't for those damn images that need to be optimized.
