Some Small Improvements
So over the last few days, I've been working like crazy on the site. Most of what I've done is behind-the-scenes stuff, like catching up on technical debt and cleaning up the code base. In doing that, I've made it easier and faster to improve existing features as well as develop new ones, and have also improved a few things.
- Speed is key, and I strive to make Pedal Room fast, so I've improved the page load times significantly when sending messages or posting new comments.
- Some of the styling and page-interaction code has also been simplified and cleaned up, which should result in some speed increases as well.
- The forms on most sections of the site have been cleaned up to use nicer, consistent buttons, which are also faster, because they don't use any images.
- If you get a lot of messages, the inbox now has pagination and loads much faster thanks to database improvements.
There were also numerous bug fixes and slight improvements here and there, and there's a lot more coming soon! Hopefully I didn't introduce any new bugs, but if I did, please let me know and I'll get them fixed ASAP.
PS Tomorrow I'll post about what's coming in the near future for Pedal Room.
