Optimization: 90% faster website

Superconhecimento is a VAS solution for internet providers, functioning as an education platform with more than 300 courses.

Problem:

With a catalog of 300 courses for more than 100,000 users, Superconhecimento saw its website become slow and slow, taking an incredible 30 seconds to load. There were three problems: poor WordPress configuration, excess plugins, and, of course, a bloated database.

Solution:

We rebuilt the site from scratch to adopt measures that could eliminate extra plugins, as it would be even more work to work on top of the existing material. We did it in incredibly quick time. In the end, we had an optimization of almost 90% in website loading time.

Tech stack:

  • LearnDash
  • Loops & Logic
  • ACF
  • Woocommerce
  • Uncanny Groups
  • Elementor

A new platform:

According to the redesign, the entire Superconhecimento website was redone, including new features to improve the user experience. From the administrator’s point of view, the site has become much easier to manage.

Home page, much more beautiful and optimized than the default LearnDash.

User Dashboard, a completely new feature, built from the ground up. The student can monitor their courses, certificates, activity calendar and a notification panel.

An 89% faster website!

By reprogramming the site, we were able to reduce a lot of the weight that was being placed on the server with so many plugins. Combining our own code with intelligent use of pre-existing plugins, we were able to remove 30 plugins, while we were able to program certain functions in code, which makes the site lighter. Furthermore, another 6 plugins are deactivated, only being used when necessary.

This took the site from loading 30s to 3.5s. A minimum expected weight is still on the site, due to the number of users (100,000+), so it is expected that it will not load in less than 1s, especially considering it is an educational platform.
