The theme has operated fairly poorly. I love the options and layouts, but performance is very low. Please see. Is there something that I am doing wrong? ThanksApril 12, 2016 at 11:45 pm #87984
I am interesting in this as well https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=fscbmwcca.comApril 13, 2016 at 5:17 am #87991
I will get around to writing a full article on how to improve page load speed one day. Both instances above, more so @cbritton, you need to compress your images. I found a plugin which does a great job of compressing them – “Compress JPEG & PNG images”, you get 500 compressions a month ( which isn’t a lot considering each image uses 1-5 compressions ).
Secondly, I recommend using WP Super Cache and Autoptimize combined over any other caching plugins.
Let me know how you get on after using them?April 14, 2016 at 3:27 am #88019
Be interested in that article as well. I probably should use Jpeg mini on mine.
I loaded that WP Super Cache but I may have it configured wrong.April 14, 2016 at 5:18 am #88023
I definitely recommend using “Autoptimize” too Kyle, it helps a lot. As soon as I get a few hours, I’ll put something together.April 14, 2016 at 8:14 am #88033
I’ve a couple of Dynamix websites which use quite a few images & I’ve found tiny png is pretty good for optimising images ( I save for web in PhotoShop and then run them through TinyPng before I upload them) – it works on jpgs & pngs. URL is here https://tinypng.com/ Once they’re uploaded I also use the free version of SmushIt.
I hadn’t heard of Autoptimize but I’ll give it a try – my hosting provides Cloudflare as a free option so I use their minification settings and caching settings and that’s useful.
As far as caching goes WP SuperCache is really good – I used to use it but when I switched to using WordFence I enabled the Falcon Engine that’s part of that and that works quote well too.
Sorry for butting in but thought the above might be worth a shot
