In order to increase performance for a site I'm looking to disable modules from being loaded only if it is a frontend request (i.e. not admin).

Has anyone had experience doing this, or have any suggestions on how to go about this?

  • what kind of issue you figured out with that extension, for my experience if you extension does not do anything that occupies memory, it is not a big problem for performance. – phanvugiap Feb 5 '16 at 6:13

Do you only want to disable the frontend output? In that case you can disable the extension in System > Configuration > Advanced > Advanced. This will only disable the frontend output, f.e. blocks.

    I'm pretty sure this is the best (and only) way to do this. Or you have to disable the extension completely bij editing the app/etc/modules/My_Module.xml file and set active to false. – Arjen Miedema Feb 5 '16 at 5:03
