Slow loading time

    Hi, I just purchased the theme through WordPress yesterday. I found the site takes quite a long time (about 15 seconds for “Journal” page) to load 8 posts. I’m not sure if the images affect the response time, but it didn’t happen on my previous theme anyway, and I am curious why the js files load such a long time. Is there anything I configure it wrongly?

    The blog I need help with is constance-tang.com.

    Hello,

    I just checked your site, Journal page, and it took just second or two to load. I didn’t experience any issue.

    Can you tell me did you manage to resolve the issue?

    Thank you,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I run my site on different computers with incognito mode. It seems the issue only happens on Chrome. Weird.

    Hello,

    I’m using Chrome as well, and I didn’t experience such issue. Can you try to disable all extensions?

    Thank you,

    Hi Djordije,

    I have disabled all the extensions and tried on few computers, unfortunately the issue still happens on Chrome (ver. 48.0). Should I send you a HAR or log?

    Sorry for spelling your name wrongly.
    It seems the Twitter widget and trackings (skimlink?) slow down the site before rendering.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the screenshot.

    External API calls (for Twitter and tracking in your case) can cause longer load times. If Twitter or any other API is down or responses are slow, it will increase loading time.

    If you don’t need these services, you should turn them off. Otherwise, you should stick with it. Nothing more can be done.

    Thank you,
