I'm using Matrix and Neo to build out quite large, complex entries. On larger pages (70+ blocks each with one-multiple sub-blocks) the performance is taking a bit of a hit taking upwards of 40 seconds to load (locally running PHP7).

Any thoughts on speeding this up at all, eg selectively loading/collapsing blocks as required rather than load in everything onto the page?

Thoughts/suggestions appreciated,


  • To clarify this concerns page load in the back-end/control panel. There are no issues with loading in the front-end Mar 14, 2017 at 11:01
  • I think you're looking at improving server performance, if it's the backend. Mar 14, 2017 at 12:34
  • Thanks @ClivePortman - even locally using Nginx/Apache/PHP7 on pretty high spec MacBook Pro is churning along. Could throw extra resources at it but would rather work out a way to minimise the bottleneck Mar 14, 2017 at 13:59
  • Afaik there is no way to speed up the backend itself. I've experienced similar and ended-up working on a remote server (which incidentally had a lot less than power than my SP4). Mar 14, 2017 at 14:34
