Optimize Drupal for Elegant Websites
Work On a PlanIt all starts with a plan and you need to know what you are planning to build. You can create the website or the web platform in a phased manner, but you need to have a clear cut design and content strategy. Modular architecture of Drupal allows you to easily add content and functionalities in the future, but you need to have a well-organized wireframe in mind before you start with the project.
Caching View ModuleIt is one of the most used modules in Drupal, and if you are using it you need to make sure that the views instances are cached. This ensures that when a user comes to the site, a cached copy is returned, and there is no need to rebuild views every time the site is loaded. This enhances the performance of the website and can save a lot of bandwidth.
Get Rid of Unused ModulesIf you have unused modules it is better to get rid of them, as they can pose many risks to your website. Since, you aren’t going to update these modules they become the breeding ground for malicious programs that may affect site’s performance.
Tune MySQLBy default most users would use MySQL as their database and if you belong to this group you need to tune it for better performance. Start by running MySQL Tuning Primer Script and this will immediately analyze your entire database and recommend changes that can help you boost performance.
Site Speed Effects PerformanceNobody likes a slow and sluggish website, and this is one of the things that you must focus on while developing the site. Great design and content may not save your day if the visitors find your site loading at snail’s pace. There are a number of modules that let you test the speed at which your site loads and pinpoint at the causes of slowness. Install such a module and run a performance check and this will help you deal with the causes of slowness if any.
