Page Loading Times for Joomla 1.5 and Virtuemart 1.1

vm-1.5-box.pngThis module shows the page load times for your site or shop as shown below:

Page loaded in 0.032547 seconds

 It is always good to know how fast your pages are loading. This is very useful functionality for all sites with or without a cache. It allows you or your clients to see the page generation times as generated from the server itself. If the figures look good then any delay in loading up the pages can then be attributed to the vistor's slow internet or LAN latency.  This information can make a great deal of difference when keeping a client happy when he/she is complaining about a slow site. This module will display the load times in six decimal places.

Place this module in the very last position on your chosen template. Often the 'debug' position is the very last but you'll need to check your chosen template's index.php file to determine which actual position is the very last one. This module works very well with Joomla 1.5 with or without virtuemart.

The configuration allows you to add your own pre-text, something like  "site optimised by Lightquick" would display at the bottom of the page as:

Site Optimised by LightQuick - Page loaded in 0.032547 seconds.

In addition to loading and publishing the module you will also need to add the following lines of PHP code to the very beginning of your chosen template's index.php file.

< ?php
# please note that in the above line there should be no space between the < and the ?
# It has been put there because Jdownload strips it out the whole line...
 $starttime = explode(' ', microtime());
 $starttime = $starttime[1] + $starttime[0];
 #creates an instance of your site's session
 $session =& JFactory::getSession();
 #Set our instance of the session with the parameter starttime.
 #We are naming it with the same name of the variable.
 #This is not a requirement, but it makes it easier to read.
 $session->set('starttime', $starttime);

Scroll to the very bottom of the page and you'll see the module output there.
