Code Refactoring To Improve BetterDocs Performance
Previously, BetterDocs used to generate assets on all of the pages of your website. So, our scripts were loaded in the pages where you weren’t using BetterDocs at all which wasn’t a good practice. With BetterDocs v1.8.0, we have done code refactoring to enhance our asset loader process. As a result, assets on every page rather it only generates where BetterDocs templates are used, this helps to load your web pages faster.
For instance, BetterDocs scripts and CSS files will only be loaded where you have used the plugin such as Docs page, Docs category, single docs, and others. BetterDocs assets won’t be executed in your home pages & others. Thus, it will massively improve the loading speed of your website.
This improvement in loading times means that with BetterDocs templates used, you can now load your documentation faster and give an enhanced experience to your site visitors. Since slow websites can make you lose traffic, with this new BetterDocs update you will now be able to keep your visitors on your pages for a longer period of time.
After adding code refactoring in BetterDocs, we also made some changes to make your documentation load faster. We improved the “flush_rewrite_rules” and now your visitors can enjoy faster loading documentation on your website.
Before this update “flush_rewrite_rules” used to get called every time the page loaded. Which can be a hurdle for your website performance. So we fixed it and released an optimized code in the new update. Now, this rule gets called only when you save your settings.
With this improvement, you can notice that your page is loading even faster than before. Now your database website can load even faster and bring in more engagement to your WordPress website thanks to these optimized codes.
Few Minor Bug Fixes & Other Improvements
We always care about our clients. So in this update, we didn’t just optimize code, we also made a few minor bug fixes and improvements after getting suggestions from our valued BetterDocs users.
Our team worked hard to find and fix all the minor bugs in this update for the free and premium versions. We are always trying to make the user experience as smooth as possible.
