Response time of albums in China

First of all finally all works fine. BUT there is a strange effect I sensed several times (got reported) from my Chinese friends. They need several minutes ot open a album jump page. The same page in Europe is really fast - in China it takes approx 6 minutes. My constellation is a web gallery hosted by HOSTEUROPE. But I know that after opening the gallery home page there is downloaded some content which is not loaded from my album location (HOSTEUROPE). Is loaded from your servers. Now this is the bottleneck according to the information I have so far. Do you have a solution for this? Might it be a way to include some libraries into the generated album. I have no really good idea. But you understand that your tool is perfect as long as you dont share galleries with users located in China. Nobody will wait for minutes for show up the page. And if you know Chinese - especially not them. Haha.

Would be great if there could be a solution / work around for this.

If your album isn't hosted on jalbum.net, there is no content downloaded from jAlbum, unless you have enabled widgets. So, step one is to turn off widgets - Album > Settings > Advanced > Metadata > Include jAlbum widget support (uncheck it), make the album again, and upload again. At that point, your album is completely freestanding, with no reliance on anything from Stockholm.

This said, jAlbum's widget support is designed to not interrupt the overall page loading.

I have to have a look at it. Will do. But are you sure there is no js framework like boilerplate etc downloaded in parallel?

Like most pages, some skins load various Javascript resources from outside the album, like jQuery. But nothing is coming from jalbum.net.

Don't take my word for it - take a look at the source code on the album page.

Haha. Trust you. Fine with it. But would be interesting what slows down there. Do you have the possibility to test with a Chinese partner?

It's not a question of trust. Open the source code of the page, and look at all of the links. Almost all of them are relative (i.e., they're pointing to something in the album itself), or they might be pulling something from the cloud, like a Google font. Again, don't take my word for it - look for yourself.

But would be interesting what slows down there.

Sounds like the Great Firewall of China at work.

No, I only know some thoroughly disreputable people in Sweden, Hungary, the U.K., and Australia. ;)

But beyond that, I'm not really sure what it is you're asking for. Some people in the world have very poor connections to the internet. What do you think a page of HTML and CSS can do about that? As we have said, the album stands on its own - it's not pulling any resources from the jAlbum servers. Everything needed to view the album is coming from your web host. Perhaps you should be talking to your web host?

CDN Networks says ‘research has found that nearly nine in every 10 European websites operating in China failed to meet the 4.82 seconds which users believe it should take to load.’

And ‘Thousands of companies within Europe, including the UK, France, Germany and Italy, have dedicated websites for the Chinese market. However, “The Great Firewall of China” – China’s unique internet filtering system, creates both technological and legislative challenges that can hinder European website’s performance in China.’
