I remember the reaction of people many years when someone spoke of a friend using an online dating service.The general assumption by people was that they must have been desperate.It is funny how times change and things become socially acceptable.Online dating no longer has the stigma that it once had.Today, it is one of the most common ways for people to meet each other and a 2 billion dollar industry that keeps getting bigger and bigger.It is therefore no surprise that many entrepreneurs are trying to cash in on the popularity of online dating.In this article, I would like to review a professional dating script for you called PG Dating Pro. I logged into the dating website to see how it all worked. Members are displayed at the top of every page so you can easily view different members when you are browsing.
I then switched to the gallery tab and it took over a minute to load. I gave the script the benefit of doubt and assumed that the hosting company that was hosting the demo website was experiencing some slowdown temporarily.However, when I checked an hour later, the same slowdown problems were there.It then dawned on me that navigating the admin area of the website was quick, even when the front end of the website was super slow.This confirms that the slow loading times were down to the script itself, not the hosting company.
A quick test of the demo page on GTmetrix reveals how inefficient the script is.
The script has not been optimised for speed, with loading times sometimes taking several seconds.
