This question already has an answer here:

I am building a community site. The site would have A LOT of data on it.

I thought about creating a lot of content pane with views, and use them with panels - for every page.

I will be happy to hear your thoughts about this idea.

  • It will make my site much slower?
  • Or it depends entirely on different things? if so, I will be happy to get more information. I know I need to cache, but I don't really know how to do that on the user's computers.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Panels is actually sometimes faster than core is on it's own.


And that's without utilizing caching, something Panels can do much better than core, because it allows you to do it from on a page by page basis, down to on a block by block basis.

  • Hey, thanks, you answered my question. But, now i have another one - you wrote: "That said, you should consider using Caching, as a website utilizing Panels well is most likely a complex one". How do I make Drupal always use Caching? – EB84 Sep 22 '13 at 14:20
  • @EB84, Drupal caching is a considerably large topic. Here's a good page that has links to various points -- drupal.org/node/326504 – hargobind Feb 3 '14 at 1:00
