Speeding up Forums


New member
First of all I thank Ozzy47 for his detailed Information on post forum hack.

And now I will come to the point. Please don't point me to vb.org or vb.com

Chris, it would be great if you can explain us in a simple manner...how to speed up our forums step wise. Just two days back I have attempted to do some modifications as per the threads of vb.org. But not only failed to getting good results.... also i got some errors. I think i can handle those errors.

I need details on the following areas:

  • Parallelize downloads across hostnames
  • Leverage browser caching
  • Combine external JavaScript
  • Combine external CSS
  • Serve static content from a cookieless domain
  • Remove query strings from static resources
  • Specify a Vary: Accept-Encoding header
  • Minimize redirects

The above are given from this link: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/w2C5k/http://www.telugudosti.com

Hope you can help me in this regard.
