JS query causing slow page speed performance

4 posts in this topic



I've been struggling with optimizing my site speed for a few days. I ultimately moved from shared hosting to DV, and although I now have a lower google-pagespeed rating, my site is actually faster and much more responsive. Same thing on, I went from a 91 to an 81, but the site is still faster than it was before. 


Anyway, I found the DMS js scripts in the attached screenshot are slowing me down, is there anyway to suppress them? Are they necessary, can I remove them? 












I could sacrifice the parallax and animations at least for speed if thats the case, but I'm sure theres a way to keep all these and optimize the performance. 


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Site in question is:

What do you mean by DV ?


Also, you can't suppress the DMS scripts otherwise DMS will no longer function. In regards to them actually slowing your site, I don't how this can be as I have no issue with page speed on my FlyWheel test site or my Digital Ocean test site.


Therefore, its most likely either your server configuration or you have other scripts/plugins causing the issue.


From what I can see you have no cache plugin or CDN active, see our optimize documentation for assistance -

    • DMS2 an "App Aware" theme?
      By vanessabt+
      Hi,  I am looking at bringing on a new client that we are doing a website redesign for.  Ideally I would like to use pagelines for this but we are also going to be potentially using phonegap to build a corresponding mobile app for the client and connecting it through the AppPresser core plugin to wordpress.  One of the conditions in order to do this is that the chosen theme that is installed in wordpress and that the website uses is an "app aware" theme.  Do you know if dms is an "app aware" theme?  I need to confirm this upfront because there will be no time to redevelop the site if it does not work.  We have a tight timeframe to complete the site and then phase 2 will be the app.  Please advise.  Thank you.
    • Visibility on mobile - tags or code?
      By mikeeg8+
      Is there a quick way to show/hide things on mobile and desktops please, i.e. like a shortcode or similar?
      I've used a bit of code, but wondered if that was the mode elegant way - is there something built into a media box, for example that would give me a hide on desktop toggle?
      Thank you

      By respectgb+
      I'm having problems with bootstrap popovers being cut off the edge of the browser. I'm using the latest version of dms (2.2) and this problem occurs on all browsers tested. Please can you let me know how we can fix this?
