    I’ve recently almost finished my site : Home Poker Pro – http://www.homepokerpro.com
    I’ve got a few articles and videos to sort out but then its all done.

    I’ve been working on it locally, and decided to upload to check it all out on the server, and well its struggling.

    I’ve done a couple of reports on it:
    Page load time: 37.95s
    Total page size: 1.37MB
    Total number of requests: 67

    The biggest hurdle is here is page load time, I tried some caching plugins :
    Wp- super cache
    and another one which dealt with minifying js

    I got the page load time down to about 10 seconds, but still when you went to the site it would hang, then all appear at once.
    Also using the plugins to achieve this I found that some information was not displaying – the main title on the front page and the email opt in on the main page and the free tool kit page for example, the colour section background was showing but the content had disapeared.

    I had to remove the plugins, and re-upload my site to get the content back. (not the database, just the core files). I’m presuming the minifying of the js caused errors.

    I know that sites withthe least amount of plugins run faster etc, but the plugins I’ve got all play a part :
    EasySocialShare Buttons – because the flat style share buttons fit better than your default share bar
    Jetpack – so people can leave comments without needing to be a member
    Mailchimp for wordpress – so people can signup to my email list
    Ninja popups – to handle subscriptions to maillist aswell (that are popups)
    Page restrict (currently disabled) – but will be used for private content soon
    Pretty Link Pro – to make affiliate links and deep nested URLS easier to remember / type
    Woocommerce – for the store
    WooZone – to import amazon products and redirect woocommerce cart to amazon
    YITH Custom login – the make the login page have my logo and look more inlinish with my site.

    Can you folks help recommend anything I can do, or a decent caching plugin that can help improve the speed of my site? Ideally I’d like to get it down to around 5 -7 seconds.



    Hey checkitwriteit!

    Please refer to Ismael’s post here – https://kriesi.at/support/topic/responsive-images/#post-378141



    Perfect! Thanks so much!

    I’ll follow those steps tomorrow, just off to bed now.

    Thanks again!



    We will keep the thread open to hear from you and it will be on hold until you post. Have a nice weekend!



    Ok so everything seemed to be going smoothly with regards to the list outlined in the other thread, until it came to the minifying stage again.

    I installed BWP Minify, and had the default options select. It completely broke the site again (like the other minify plugins I tried).

    Here’s an image of the site:

    Is there maybe a way to set up the minify plugin so that it doesn’t break the site?


    I have gone through every other step outlined however.

    The site speed does seem to be way better on my end.

    How do you find it now?



    I loaded the site a couple of times and to me it seems average, not fast and not slow either.

    Best regards,


    Thanks Rikard.

    Do you have any clarification on the minfy stuff?

    What elements of Enfold can’t be minified for example as it breaks the site as per the image above

    Thanks :)



    It should work right out of the box. You can try deactivating your other plugins to see if that helps and checking the “Leave external files at their original positions? ” option in the BWP minify settings.

    Best regards,


    WP Fastest Cache

    I am not a big fan of using these cache plugins but I did test this one to see if it made a difference and it did. Having said that, I didn’t use it because I didn’t think it made a big enough difference for me to use it. I don’t like using any more plugins than I absolutely have to.

    Best of luck.


    it seems that gzip is not activated for all file types

    i have for my provider and an apache Server the following in my htaccess file:

    # GZip
    <IfModule mod_deflate.c>
        AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/css application/json

        ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access plus 7 days 1 hour"
        <IfModule mod_headers.c>
            Header append Cache-Control "public"
    <FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)(\.gz)?$">
    Header unset ETag
    FileETag None

    mod_deflate and expires helps for a good ranking and speed
    the last thing with filesmatch is for that annoying yslow configure E Tag message

    But modules have to be activated server sides (deflate and expires on your apache – i don’t know if this is given on your server)

    sometimes with bwp minify it helps to deactivate the minfying of the layer-slider javascript files that it works than well.
    Have a look at advanced settings of bwp minify – there is listing and you can activate the layerslider js (there are two of them) and than put it with the plus sign to not minify – try that.

    you can see it in the gtmetrix that alot of your files aren’t compressed – have a look here on google pagespeed tool too:




    Please see @guenni007‘s posts above
    @guenni007 Thanks for your input :)

    Best regards,
