In a effort to optimize the site more. I've been seeing what plugins we really need and what's can be tweaked.

I got rid of the quicknews plugin. Seems like it was a resource hog. But I manage to re-create what it did with about 10 lines of code. After I did this, the site seems to load a LOT faster for me.

Apture was bought out by Google so they are going away soon. So I removed that from the site.

The featured news I'm going to remove the plugin and try to re-create a featured news area myself from scratch. But I won't remove it until a replacement is ready.

I also upgraded the chat to version 4.0 which is supposed to perform a lot better. We shall see. I haven't had time to re-create the mobile chat or sidebar chat yet. So be patient.

As long as all this is for the best and we'll have a more stable site in a week or two... then wait we shall!

Tosh, couldn't you post a list of all the plugins used? then perhaps we could give you some feedback on weather they're useful or not so you could make those decisions.

Tweaked more settings this morning. Moved the .js for the social sharing to the bottom for faster loading.

the site was down for me last night right after I finished listening to the podcast.

 

Any chance you can look into?

it seems that there is some hidden content or layout that make the site show a horizontal slider at the bottom although there is nothing to show. This doesnt happen in the forum.

I like the white outline on the quick news makes it easier to group
