Speed up your store with OpenCart Lightning

OpenCart Lightning makes your store lightning-fast. Pages are opened nearly instant.

It doesn’t require any configuration or technical knowledge.

There are 2 things you need to know:

  • Pages are cached for 2 hours. If you want to update the page, just hit update button in your browser.
  • You have 7 days to test OpenCart Lightning. You will need to pay to continue using it ($78 per domain and subdomains).

You will have such a bar in your admin area:

It shows last displayed frontend page time (latency) and free space at your server.

When you hover it, you will see OpenCart Lightning Panel:

Here you can disable/enable OpenCart Lightning and clear caches.

    Hi . I am just testing your extension and it is great, I would like buy it. I have Journal 2 on OC but some of my SEO URLs miss after I was install your extension and after the instalation some of tham it was change on my basic index URLs. for example: index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1078 . It was doing only during loading some pages on web browser. I have question? It may take some efekt on google indexing? or yahooo or else?? or is it some option that I will have my original SEO URLs ??

    • MaxD MaxD says:

      Maybe your SEO URLs extension is not compatible with Lightning optimizations. Try to switch Lightning optimizations to “Safe”.

    i installed the extension but it didnt show in my admin page.
    im using opencart Version and vqmod is already installed

  10. Luke Mangini says:

    Contact the developer of the extension. Normally a contact email address is included in the install instructions.

  11. Arthur says:

    Is there a version of this extension for multiple domains?

    • MaxD MaxD says:

      Lightning license allows to use it at subdomains and multistore.

      If you have separate shops at completely different domains, you will need separate license for each one.
