@ Cheap, it's a huge topic on its own... There'll be a minor update shortly, to address some minor CLS issues. The demo is hosted on a fairly low spec VPS to be honest.

Some things such as 'render-blocking resources' can't be improved upon, due to the sequence X-Cart loads it's javascript.

Unchecking "Enable buttons "Buy Now" and "Add to wish list" in the products list" in General Settings > Appearance will reduce the DOM size somewhat on the homepage and catalog pages.

You can 'trim' down the template somewhat (CSS & JS) to make small extra gains, but you'll probably need a reasonably experienced developer on your side to make the changes.

If you look at the trends in other ecommerce platforms, eg. Shopify; stores tend to be going more lightweight in content/presentation, in order to get better scores. It's possible to make changes via the reBOOT settings to do the same.

You can search back through this thread, as it's been talked about/addressed before, but in the meantime, you can check the SEO tips and links section.

Having had the unenviable task of working with Woocommerce over the past couple months (don't ask), I can tell you that in terms of SEO, X-Cart Classic and reBOOT beats it hands down

I might write a longer article dedicated to SEO in general, as there's so many factors involved, ie. not just the template itself.

Thanks, Phil. I'm good to go with blogs now, although creating a blog through the product creation process feels a bit strange (there's a lot of different images to create), not to mention that I'm probably not that good at coming up with original content, so I'm trying out an AI Article Writer app (Writesonic)



I thought I could use a blog to promote my products.

from what i've read safari wont ever support wepb since its not an Intl standard so we'll need some code to detect/deflect to the jpg versions at some point.

@ Doug, sort of agreed, but out of curiosity, where did you read that? Caniuse WEBP

Will probably need to change to using <picture> tags for images, so there's a JPEG fallback, which will take a fair bit of work, but it's on my list of jobs... It's a good job the reBOOT WEBP addon preserves the original images

A small update will probably come this weekend, to at least address some minor issues with CLS, and a few extra little bits n bobs.

various forums and tech support threads. Apple wont support a google-created standard unless there's Intl support for it.

Default Re: X-Cart reBOOT (reDUX) Template

So I duplicated my store in a different directory/database to install reboot on and play around with/ customize.
What is the best way to transfer all the modified reboot database config/languages settings over to my live store?
