    I might have to suck it and see and they’re are several sites that aren’t on the latest version as I have too many sites to update them all straight away. I normally only update them if there’s an issue or I’m working on the site.

    Quick question. If there is an issue, would it show at the first stage when the site connects to the database? Or could it connect ok and have an issue on another function?


    I need to update mySQL on our server from 5.5 to 5.7. I've asked a few questions on the cPanel forum, trying to get an idea of what might change and they've mentioned that strict mode will be enabled by default. We're checking sites with custom script if this will be an issue. Would any Perch sites need any additional changes or will the Strict mode be OK?



    1. Process time: 0.0427

    Yeah, I thought that when I saw it. I've done a quick video to show whats happening. The text pops in, then images pop in later.

    I had a look in dev tools to see whats happening, but I'll take a closer look.


    Edit - I've just tried looking in Chrome dev tools and the images don't load at all the first time (do after a refresh), so I must have something really wrong... I will keep looking.

    Thanks Drew. I'll try moving the no-index is see if that helps. How do you mean how big is your index? Do you mean how many items in the collection.

    ps. Sorry about the late reply. I didn't receive an email notification about the update. Is this not automatic on the new forum?

    Edit - Just noticed the no-index parts were added twice (once in the right place and once in the wrong place). I have removed the wrong ones with the same result.


    I'm seeing an issue where the images from a collection is loading in slowly.

    I've got a collection setup for a portfolio section with the following template (portfolio_full.html);

    With the function on portfolio.php page;

    1. <?php
    2. perch_collection('portfolio', [
    3. 'count' => 20,
    4. 'sort-order' => 'DESC',
    5. 'template'=>'portfolio_list.html',
    6. ]);
    7. ?>

    Then, the function;

    1. <?php
    2. perch_collection('portfolio', [
    3. 'template'=>'portfolio_full.html',
    4. 'filter' => 'portfolio_slug',
    5. 'match' => 'eq',
    6. 'count' => 1,
    7. 'value' => perch_get('s'),
    8. ]);
    9. ?>

    on the portfolio_full.php page which calls the first template (portfolio_full.html)

    All is working great, expect the images take about 10seconds to load in. I've even created a preloader div that fades when the window is loaded, but it still fades before the images come through, so I don't think its an image file-size issue.

    The debug from the page is;

    And the diagnostics are;
