Urgent! Opencart.com is sometimes pretty slow recently

Maybe some of you have already noticed this. opencart.com is really slow to load sometimes recently, especially the extension store (forum is a little bit better). Perhaps this is caused by the increasing number of daily concurrent visitors or full-text search done by visitors in the extension store.

Something is gotta be done for this. It is a horrible experience for visitors and OpenCart will miss lots lots of potential users and extension purchases because of this. Get a better server or some kinda load balancing? I do not know, but the OpenCart Official team'd better handle this ASAP.

The product count in the categories is a significant source of slow page loads in opencart. There are a few places this could be calculated and you will have to get rid of all of them to notice an improvement in page load time due to this factor.

If you edit the Catalog module you can disable the product count for the navigation menu (displayed in the left column by default) by setting Product Count: to Disabled.

The default theme also has a product count displayed in the main menu of the site. You can find this code in catalog/controller/common/header.php. <a href=”http://webstrani.si/” rel=”dof ... strani</a>
