YAXS: MyKerkyra.gr updated and optimized

Posted by: kerkyraon 2012/3/5 14:38:47 4037 reads There has been an update on my site mykerkyra.gr. The update involves aesthetical as well as optimization improvements.

Most of the modules of the site are heavily hacked to serve my needs regarding their look and feel and the php code is altered to improve stability, usability and optimize the database queries. The rest are custom made modules made from scratch.

To my surprise optimizing the catads modules as well as smartsection saved my up to 30 db queries in the front page! And there is room for more..

The site also uses my hacked version of backend.php for centralized rss feeds. No other core files have been altered.

Moreover I used URL rewriting for most modules.

There are still lots of improvements to be made but since its usable right now and in a fair level I decided to publish it as it is and keep working on it in my own time. The sure thing is that this one is better than the previous version.

Unfortunately the site is only in Greek right now but you can get the general idea. I hope you like it
