Dating service scripts

A quick test of the demo page on GTmetrix reveals how inefficient the script is.

Dating is no more a sinful pleasure, and people don’t mind being blatant about their searches for dates.

People look for dates everywhere – outside colleges, at cafes, in football games, and even online!

Sadly, this is one area where PG Dating Pro fails badly. There are options to make people friends, favourite them, and blacklist them.

You can also communicate with others by private message, sending kisses and winks, and leaving a message on their wall. On closer inspection, PG Dating Pro is not set up well for a dating script.

It has been around since 1999, which makes it one of the oldest dating scripts available online. Unfortunately, my first impressions of PG Dating Pro were not good as the demo website was terribly slow.

The developers of PG Dating Pro provided me with access to a demo website of their script in order to check it out for this review. I looked at a user’s profile and then switched from one tab to the other and it took 30 seconds to load.

Since I was provided with access to the demo area of the script and did not actually see the files myself, I have not been able to examine the quality of coding directly.

Though I did quickly check the source of a few pages.

It appears to be more of a social networking solution than a dating solution. The script has a Facebook-inspired message wall where users can leave messages for each other. If you are looking for someone to date, do you really want to see all the other men and women who have flirted, liked, and chatted, with the person you like?

The whole idea of adding a message wall for everyone to send messages seems bizarre.

I noticed on the home page, for example, that they used H1 header tags in four places (despite the fact search engines ask you to tag should be declared only once in a page"only use a H1 header once on a page). The developers could maybe have made this claim a dozen or so years ago, but they have fell behind the times.
