Well, looking at how the Reference Library is performing after SBL, I realize that it’s not scaling well on shared hosting. Our webhost tends to cap performance under a standard threshold, which is causing page loads in places to be insufferably slow after the database updates itself and rebuilds the cache.
So, with that in mind: A new re-design is in order! I’m going to be changing the face of the Reference Library once again, and see if I can fix the slowness once and for all.
Also, once the new version is released, I will also be opening up user accounts publicly. This means that people will be able to claim and manage their blogs directly, as well as add new blogs to the archive for review on their own.
Big, awesome stuff ahead. Stay tuned.
