  • Miva Ready Theams and "Poor" Google PageSpeed Insights

    I am starting to think about redeveloping my site and bring up todate. One of the features I was hoping to improve was Page Speed. So I started to look at the Ready Theams and running them through Google PageSpeed Insights. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/

    What I realize that a lot of the base Ready Themes templates have "Poor" speed rating for both Mobil and Desktop.

    Should I be concern and will I be able to improve this speed?

  • we have found adding compression and expiry dates to the files by adding code to the htaccess file gains a 15 point increase on the mobile and desktop google speed result.

    • We have found the same here. There are various things you can do with image compression and expiry dates to gain a good 20 pts on desktop and 12-15 on mobile. We are also developing some other techniques to raise those points further.

      • When you are talking about "expiry dates" what is that referring to and how do I adjust? Clueless on that

          • Here is some sample code you can add to you .htacces file to add cache expiration dates to different resources. The readythemes don't currently ship with .htaccess files which is why we don't include this code:

            Code:
            # ----------------------------------------------------------------------
            # Expires headers (for better cache control)
            # ----------------------------------------------------------------------
            <IfModule mod_expires.c>
            ExpiresActive On
            ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year"
            ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year"
            ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year"
            ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year"
            ExpiresByType video/ogg "access plus 1 month"
            ExpiresByType audio/ogg "access plus 1 month"
            ExpiresByType video/mp4 "access plus 1 month"
            ExpiresByType video/webm "access plus 1 month"
            ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
            ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
            ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
            ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
            ExpiresDefault "access 1 month"
            </IfModule>
