Description of problem

Hey everyone!

So I want to make the pages o my forum load faster. Any ideas how to optimize it? I bet the first thing would be to resize the background, but not sure yet what size would be the best....

Example forum where I noticed waaaay faster loading:

Optimizing your CSS is a good way to increase the performance.

Admin Panel --> Display --> Colors --> CSS --> Optimize CSS (yes)

Hello Kami-sama,
You seem to use a lot of images. Try to compress them. Smile

Hello Mimoza!
Thank you or the suggestion. I will maybe try it with background image, but or everything else tinypng I do not really like. It messes wit quality and it as a lot of restrictions. The image hosting page I am using right now is very reliable and has big storage and contains image quality Smile
