Collection Template Slow Load

Hello,

For some reason one of my collections is loading the template noticeably slow, I've identified the template as the slow load from debug.

Is there anything I can do to see why it's loading so slow? (This is the only template in the entire site thats doing this).

It's the database query rather than the template. Can you show us your diagnostics?

Ahh ok, it's on dev at the moment. Perhaps it something to do with that but it wasn't doing so before I made template changes. I did at perch:related tags which understandably I could see why this would increase it.

Have you checked that you've not created a circular relationship? You seem to have a lot of index entries compared to the number of items.

Hmm it wasn't a circular relationship but I've removed the related tags and re saved all collection items to test and that's halved the time.

Is there a way to clean up the collection index, as nearly 10k seems a bit high

Are you indexing all fields? Do you need to? The only fields that are required for indexing are those you want to sort or filter by.

It looks like it, I wasn't aware you can specify what gets indexed. How do I change that?

If there's content you don't want to index, you can add no-index="true" to its content tag in the master template.

Ah that would be where it's going wrong. Using Perch for years and seen that.

Thanks Drew, I should be able to fix this now
