Five ways to boost Drupal’s performance


Five ways to boost Drupal’s performance

Drupal is a widely used and highly regarded content management system. At a time when every website owner is trying to squeeze a bit more speed out of their website, and reduce load times for users, the tips below will help you do just that.

We compiled these tips so that they address a variety of ways to help you increase site performance; these options are all easy to implement, and will keep your website in tip-top shape!

  1. Disable Drupal’s built-in Statistics module. The Statistics module writes data to your database on every hit, causing unnecessary resource usage. Opt for using an external analytics solution instead.
  2. Use an external cache service like CloudFlare, or Incapsula. Both services have free plans that include website performance enhancements and are easy to deploy.
  3. If you have pages that include images below the fold — news articles, blog posts, or slideshows — use a module that will load images only when a visitor actually views it. Modules like Image Lazyloader and Lazyload will help you here.
  4. Compress your Javascript and CSS files by using modules like Advanced CSS/JS Aggregation or Speedy.
  5. Disable and delete modules your Drupal site is no longer using. If you are not sure which modules your site is no longer using, or have a hard time determining which are no longer in use, try the Missing Module module.

We would love to hear your comments and feedback on how the tips above worked for you.
