    The Full Width Slider takes very long to appear when the page is started and the whole starting page takes very long to load.

    What can I do to get better performance?
    My guesses why it is so slow;

    I use 2 sliders on the starting page – on fullwidth for desktop
    another one – Layer Slider for mobile.
    only one is shown over/under 989 px width.
    Do they both load even only one is shown?

    To many pictures in slider? 9…
    php Version is still 5 – i will change my hoster in February….

    Thx in advance. Let me know if you need access to the WordPress Backend.


    Hey zeitraum_,

    Your front page seems to load pretty quickly according to the test in private, but it is very heavy in images, the page is almost 18mb which is too much. Please try to optimise your images a bit to see if that helps.

    Best regards,


    Hey Rikard!

    I optimised all the pictures in the starting page – now its much faster, thx.

    The 18 MB were only on the starting page?
    Where can you see that and do you have further suggestions to fasten the loading time?




    You can see if you click the link to the test or run it yourself, right now there is 11mb of images on your front page.

    There are a lot of suggestions listed in the second test, which you can try out.

    Best regards,


    Hi Rikard…

    Yeah, i forgot the mobile slider….

    Now summary is:
    Page size 2,9 MB
    Load time 1,34
    Performance grade 77
    Requests 82

    Are these values i can live with? I think its more than 4 times faster than before, so i think yes:)

    The other tips are a little bit sophisticated;
    f.e decreasing http requests:

    Decreasing the number of components on a page reduces the number of HTTP requests required to render the page, resulting in faster page loads. Some ways to reduce the number of components include: combine files, combine multiple scripts into one script, combine multiple CSS files into one style sheet, and use CSS Sprites and image maps.

    I will let that slide if its not really necessary….

    I have another question, i don´t know if thats your department;)
    I made a redirection for typing in the domain without www in the .htaccess file;
    (only an example, but thats what i did:)

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^
    RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L]

    Works charming in firefox, but not in Chrome….do you have an idea?



    Combining files; I see that you have selected to do that already under Enfold->Performance. If you want to improve that even more then you might want to try a caching or performance plugin.

    Redirect; I tried typing in your site URL without www and it loaded fine on my end using Chrome. It it’s not working on your end then please try using an incognito browser window.

    Best regards,


    Hello Rikard – thx for your help regarding the page speed – i changed the pictures in the whole website, that was the main issue and things are much faster now…

    Regarding the redirection – it even works when you clear your cache?
    When i clear my cache in chrome or use incognito mode i get an error if i don´t use www:

    Die Website ist nicht erreichbarPrüfen Sie, ob “” einen Tippfehler enthält.

    (It means website is unavailable – check typos…)

    It works in other browsers…thanks in advance!



    Thanks for the update. I can’t see any problems with loading your site without www on my end, it loads normally without any error messages. Could you try clearing the cache from Chrome and restart it? You could also try rebooting your local router, or checking on a different network to see if you get the same results there.

    Best regards,


    Hi Rikard, i cleared the cache.
    Tried it via LTE from my phone and other networks, without www. always message:

    Website is not available DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

    Thanks in advance.



    Thanks for the update, but I still can’t reproduce that result on my end though. All I do is copy, then paste it in the URL field and press enter. That loads the site just fine on my end. What exactly are you doing?

    Best regards,


    Exactly that :)

    Fill in “” in chrome.
    Really strange that it works on your end….
    I put you a link to a screenshot of the problem in the private content.

    Thx in advance



    Thanks for the update, we can’t view the screenshot you posted, since it’s not shared publicly. Loading your site without www still works on my end though.

    Best regards,
