EzPz Version 4.0 On its way

by Toby Somerville

Over the last couple of months we have been working hard on a major update to EzPz. We wanted to keep things simple and make the interface cleaner, sexier and generally more useful. So, what is being changed? Well, I’m glad you asked:


  • Dashboard: Where you get a quick overview of your statistics and site usage including:
    • Number of pages viewed
    • Storage usage
    • Comparision of visitor numbers to previous weeks


  • Admin area: The administration area has been given a whole new look
  • Statistics: More stats and graphs in an easier to digest layout
  • Preview: Now you can check any pages in a variety of sizes. You can see how your site will look in tablets and smartphones and on desktops.

Existing customers will not have to do anything to take advantage of the new version of EzPz. Their site will be automatically upgraded and of-course there are no extra charges for this new version.

Speed Tip: Number 4

by Toby Somerville

This is probably the most important speech tip off them all as it can have the greatest effect on page load speed.

Reduce the number of files in a page.

Once the HTML of a web page is downloaded is load all the various files that are included within the page. These include the CSS, JavaScript and to any other media, such as images, Flash files, video, audio etc. You might expect that all these files would be downloaded simultaneously. Unfortunately this is not the case. For instance you are running Internet Explorer 6, you are limited to downloading only two files simultaneously (from the same domain). This means that, in a page containing four files, the last two files cannot begin to download until the first two files have completed downloading. This obviously increases the length of time the user has to wait for the page to appear.

In upcoming posts we will look at various ways to reduce the number off files within a web page.

EzPz: Add HTML Directly into the WYSIWYG Editor

by Toby Somerville

You can now add HTML at the click of a button into the WYSIWYG editor in EzPz. This means you can now add things like Paypal buttons and YouTube videos in the editor without having to go into the code. Click the place where you want your HTML to go, click the Add HTML button, paste the code into the box, click insert. Et voila HTML directly added into the editor.

Speed Tip: Number 3

by Toby Somerville

Reduce HTTP calls by combining as many files into one as possible i.e.

  • Put all CSS files into one CSS file
  • Put all JavaScript files into one Javascript file
  • Use CSS Sprites to serve images
