I have modified some queries so that the front page of the forum loads a little faster. It is only slightly better. I have reduced the load time from about 7 seconds to about 5 seconds (for logged in users). Not ideal, but an improvement…
surprisingly, the stuff that takes the longest to load is the ‘Last post’ information. Is there information in there that is not required? I may be able to trip out the fat some more, but I am not sure how I would do it yet.
