    Site speed significant increased

    It is a long period ago work was done at background of the site. Reason was lack of correct working tools to aid in the technical framework of www.pitztalholiday.eu. For the past two years this has caused a slow site.

    With modern tools and some tweaking of the site settings the speed increased with a factor 3 to 4.

    Changing the photo gallery used

    Sofar NextGEN gallery has been used, but this is an rather old and resource intensive photo gallery. Although still used by a lot of websites I decided, after intensive testing, to switch to Envira Gallery. 

    This will at the end lead to better performance of the site and less bugs/maintenance of the photo galleries.

     

    Currently we are working at converting the existing NextGEN photo galleries to Envira based galleries.

     

    Site is now secure

    Decreased the font size from 16px to 14px as it was a litle bit too large compared with other websites. Also the site is now now secure. It is now also reachable via https://www.pitztalholiday.eu (insecure http link will be automatically redirected to the secured site).
