• 6 March 2014Update: Shared Stories list optimization.

    You will now see a "paging" interface above the Shared Stories list in the Study pages. This shoud improve the response time of the Study pages, along with some SQL optimization.

    With the latency between your computer and the server, the change is probably not as noticable as it is on my development version, but it is definitely there. The render time for the page used to be often above 300 milliseconds, and a quick check now shows an average under 150 milliseconds, which is much better.

    Note that the "rows per page" setting is remembered during a session only. If you log out or stop using the site for a while, you may have to change it again if you don't like the default of 20 rows. Saving options like that would be nice but it is the kind of things I can not prioritize right now.

    I wish I could work on new exciting features and more fun things... but unfortunately in order to ensure the longevity of the website I am going to have to take care of other optimizations and some rewrites sooner than later. The storage of the Stories is something that needs a lot of improvement. It is really old code, it is very inefficient in terms of storage and I can think of better ways to do it now.
