Site Loading Time - Very Slow


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello.

 

We have installed Pagelines Framework and built a website. However, the load time for the site is incredibly slow. I've gone through and made sure that everything we have on the site (images, media, plugins) are necessary and kept to a minimum, but it still seems to be lagging.

 

I am new to the whole website-building thing, so forgive me if this is something easy I'm missing.

 

Please help! Thanks!

I just reloaded your site site a few times and it showed up right away for me each time - no loading issues. Have you tried loading the site on another computer?

Yes, I've tried it on a few different computers. I also just did a Google Developer test and it scored a 75 out of 100 for speed. It gave the following suggestions that I don't really know how to implement with a Wordpress/ Pagelines theme:

 

- Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.

- Leveraging Browser Caching: Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.

 

I have no idea how to do either of these things.

Both of those things need lines added to your .htaacess file, and it also depends on your host how they have the server configured.
