    Hi! I changed my theme to GP and worked so hard, really proud of how it looks, however it does not pass the CWV test. I can’t figure out where I went wrong and have trying all kinds of different configurations. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! https://craftychica.com

    Hi there,

    i ran a web page test on your site:


    The main issue it shows is a the big delay on the initial request.
    In the waterfall report, click on the Line #1 and it will show you the timings:

    Discovered: 0.003 s
    Request Start: 0.704 s
    DNS Lookup: 195 ms
    Initial Connection: 248 ms
    SSL Negotiation: 258 ms
    Total Connection Time: 701 ms
    Time to First Byte: 2541 ms
    Content Download: 11 ms
    CPU Time: 14 ms

    The main issue is the Time to First Byte: 2541 ms – thats 2.5 seconds the server took to return some content to the browser.

    If you run a Google Pagespeed test you see it too raises an Opportunity of: Reduce initial server response time

    Aside from asking your host to take a look, you may want to enable page caching on the server ( if it thats an option ) or use a cache plugin.

    Another thing is the Satisfy Google Font being loaded. Are you still using that font on your site ?


    Thank you! how do I enable page caching? And how do I change the font, I thought I had changed it to system font helvetica.

    Hi Kathy,

    You can use a plugin like WP Rocket or Autoptimize, or something else for caching. If you’re server has caching, you can use that as well – You’ll need to ask your hosting provider regarding this.

    Then for the font, can you check in Appearance > Customize > Typography if you have that font loaded there?
