Re: Slow site with loads of categories

Unfortunately a year too late, although I did solve the speed issues by modding it myself.

Just unfortunate that it's not a scalable cart!

Re: Search Descriptions from header search by default

Thanks for that, in this case I didn't need to improve the search, just include descriptions each time. The descriptions on the site only include a tiny amount of detail so full text searches etc aren't really needed.

Thanks again

Search Descriptions from header search by default

I want to search descriptions via the header search by default in 1.5.x The method used in 1.4.x simply included a hidden field, this does not work on the javascript search bar at the moment so my solution was in common.js From url += '&filter_name=' + encodeURIComponent(filter_name); to url += '&fi...

Re: Description search

I too have been bouncing around this forum looking for a quick solution however was left disappointed. i2Paq's suggestion to use the FREE search was unhelpful, a better idea would be for the moderators to divide up the support forums into different major versions if large changes are made. Then it'd...

Re: 1.5.0.5 very slow

Ok I've changed the way I approached it all. Here's a new vqmod. It basically does the same thing as the default install, but it rolls it all into the category model function and enables caching, so if someone wants to give this one a try I would love to hear if it helps. This one should not mess w...

Re: Slow site with loads of categories

Thanks for that suggestion; I just can't see customers waiting round that long? I'm looking forward to some sort of fix with this; although other carts don't always offer category search from the search bar so might just live without it. My other option is only allowing search breakdown into the top...

Re: Slow site with loads of categories

Not really, but then that's only for the side menu isn't it? Have to admit I did not consider disabling that one to start with. I find it's fine everywhere except the dropdowns, which was solved by simply taking out the processing. I did try just removing it from the template first but then realised...

Slow site with loads of categories

Hi all, I've got a site with quite a few categories in; and I have identified the categories as the slowing factor I believe...in particular that dropdown box in the search bar. For example, I increased site speed massively by commenting out the code in header.php that creates categories for the dro...

Re: Slow after import, tried everything!!

yes I would say it's most likely a hosting issue my guess is they have someone overloading their db server. There was a post recently that tells how to log the db execution time of all the queries you could look at that to get more data. I don't suppose you happen to have a link to it? I've got a s...

Re: [MOD] GeoZone - Add All Countries Button

Thanks for this, found it extremely useful. I ran the updated code in Chrome and just let it get on with it. With the zones I used a text box instead so you have some choice on setup and don't have to load the page again. Another upside of having done this is I can now take zone data directly from t...
