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.
