5 Simple Tips and Tricks of Kentico CMS after Launching

  1. Inactivate ViewState and Other Unnecessary Widgets

The web platforms come with various controls and widgets by default. Some of them are needed and the others are not. It depends on your willingness and needs. For example, Kentico has ViewState for showing the viewers. You can disable the ViewState on controls since you don’t really need it on the Kentico site. Another example is a PostBack widget to the server. You can also disable it at any time. These tricks will make your page download performs faster because they will reduce the size.


  1. Set the Google Analytics

There is one effective way to maintain a website, which is by recognizing the pages that mostly used and other ones which rarely used. The ‘treatment’ is the same for the big and small website. However sometimes, we get confused to decide which pages, elements, or functions we should leave. For assisting you, use Google Analytics for identifying analytical data of the most get used pages.


  1. Eliminate JavaScript files

This is another way to make your website run faster. Try to eliminate any JavaScript you don’t need. Just find the related tool on the internet.


  1. Check the Sources and Sort Them Out

Besides disabling ViewState, there are some sources you need to check and sort.

  • Multiple JavaScript files can be sorted out into a separate file. Minimize them as small as you can. Don’t get too obsessed with the imported files.
  • Check the CMSDesk for URL that’s not SEO friendly and verify it to be in the right place. Moreover, change it into a friendlier URL by using URL Alias.
  • See the line breaks or tabs and check what control has influenced them. Remember that Transformations or Templates bring extra whitespace. Remove it.


  1. Debug Mode for Cache and SQL Queries

To get rid of useless cache, you need Debug Mode. The location is in CMSSiteManager then you can go to Administration, System, and Debug. There, you can find the culprit which slows down the website. After debugging, don’t forget to turn it off.

Hopefully, those tips and tricks are useful for your project on Kentico CMS. Make sure you know what you need for the website. The most important thing is to get the ‘trash’ out because everybody loves the fast and clicky website.
