Hi Folks, mostly Yaron,
I’m trying to get our organization to formally move away from Foswiki and towards Mediawiki / Semantic Mediawiki. I have a compelling MW site that deals with many of the issues we face daily.
However, there is a concern regarding performance. Certain page delays are covered by explaining that the page includes several queries, compared to our current, similar Foswiki pages that are created by hand. However, the one problem I can’t get around that people come back to is the speed of Headertabs. They see what should be a static page in MW that uses headertabs, and see the pre-tab list of tabs come up first, and interpret that as performance issues. My MW 1.16 / older SMW install showed the tabs quickly, and overall load speed is faster. Unfortunately there are new features I need and I can’t use the older stuff.
Is there anything that can be done to either lose the bullets, or better yet use the yui version under MW 1.17 or higher? I know this has been discussed, and technically it’s clear why it’s a lower priority, but I’m asking again, because to admin / management decision makers, what they see affects their interpretation more than how it works.
