Image resize options - related items

Hi, I have a large Joomla site which the back end is now running very slow. I suspect this might be connected to the 100's of related items cropped images that have been created in a folder.

If I replace my intro images with the cropped image size will this help? Or will the module still the module still create duplicates?

Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi, the related item module should not have any relation with your backend slow because there is no thumbnail generation process doing in the backend. Any reason why do you think it because of the related module?

    Hi, its only really the text editor and the media areas in particular (both direct and via text editor) that are especially slow.

    I do know little about this sort of thing - it is above my pay grade but I assumed doubling the number of images the editors have to scan through might be the problem.

    My images folder size is 60MB and the related items resizing is 1/3 of that at 20MB. Could be nothing to do with it. I dont know.

    No it's not how joomla works. And about the related module, it will generate the thumbnails when some one view the module in the frontend, so it has nothing to do with backend. Also the thumbnail is generated once only and the module will load the thumbnail next time without re-generate it.

    I think that's folder size is normal if you indeed have alot of images.

    Anyway, When you said your backend slow, did you mean the whole backend operation is slow, or only when you tried to add image to your article (using the editor)?

    After many hours getting frustrated we found the issue. It was simply that a PWA progressive web app feature was installed on a previous version of the web site and Firefox had stored a load of cached data somehow. As soon as the offline data was cleared from the local browser the problem went away. Thanks for getting back to me.
