    Hi Andy,

    since I have updated to the latest version of the epix theme I have noticed a dramatic increase in the time it takes to load. Is there anything I can do to optimise the speed, I have a fast connection and I am concerned that my customers will move on before if fully loads. I have already seen a decrease in my seo rankings.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It shouldn’t have increased. Do you have a link to a page where it’s taking a long time to load and I’ll inspect it for you.

    hannahcaldwellphotography.com all pages take a while especially the home page. It seems like now it waits for the entire page to load before displaying anything where as before some of the images would keep loading after the page was displayed.

    Thanks,

    Hannah

    Hi Hannah,

    The page is 6.7mb, which will be the main cause of the issue. It loaded in 2.6 seconds on GT Metrix. However, there are a number of improvements you can make.

    Firstly, if you’re using Slide Sets for that home page, try enabling “Lazy Load” on the slider settings.

    If you’re not, please try a caching plugin like WP Fastest Cache.
