I'm seeing 5 views on my site that I'm not using and want to disable to keep things clean and performant, but I worry it could cause a problem somewhere down the road.

The views are:

  • Frontpage (frontpage)
  • Recent content (content_recent)
  • Taxonomy Term (taxonomy_term)
  • Who's New (who_s_new)
  • Who's Online (who_s_online)

I have disabled these views and haven't seen any issues. I am not using any of them. Is core expecting these to be enabled? Does disabling these actually improve performance in any way?

They are just examples and can be disabled if you don't need them.

The taxonomy term view is a bit different because that is the one that provides list of content when clicking on a term, if you disable that then those pages become practically meaningless as all they do is show the term with its fields.

Does disabling these actually improve performance in any way?

Most likely not a in a measurable way. There are a handful of routes less due to that that don't need to be regenerated on a cache clear but that's a tiny amount of the total routes and it should have no impact on runtime performance.

    Thanks @Berdir - I am using rabbit_hole to hide term pages anyway. – sonfd Apr 2 '18 at 15:30
