So I noticed after switching my site theme to generatepress theme, my pingdom score slightly went down. I suggest the Generatepress team to test this, create a new website, install auto optimize plugin and Add Expires Headers Plugin, with the twenty-ten theme, this will get the score to 98, then switch the theme to generatepress, the score will drop to 97. And requests jumped from 5 to 9!!! What are those extra 4 requests?
The following were perfect 100% A score:
B 89 Compress components with gzip
B 89 Add Expires headersOctober 25, 2019 at 4:47 pm #1044688TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
It’s hard to tell without seeing your website.
With Autoptimize installed, there should only be 2 or 3 requests on a blank install. Check out this install: http://speedtest.generatepress.com/
More info on that test site here: https://generatepress.com/fastest-wordpress-theme/
What about the actual speed of the site? Did it change at all?October 25, 2019 at 7:43 pm #1044740bluebit
Interesting, I think maybe its auto optimize, I removed this script from auto optimize: js/jquery/jquery.js
and the pingdom score improved, so I’m thinking that was the problem. My http requests went down to 4, and score to 99, which is amazing
But then I install woocommerce plugin the http requests on pingdom went up to 10, so woocommerce added 6 requests, thats insane, I’m trying to figure how to bring it back down.October 26, 2019 at 9:23 am #1045307TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperOctober 26, 2019 at 7:45 pm #1045610bluebit
Yes, but I don’t know of better alternatives, do you?October 27, 2019 at 8:49 am #1046084DavidStaffCustomer Support
not many free alternatives to match all the functions of Woo.
All of them are going to make additional requests so not sure there is a real improvement to be made.
If its a simple shop, with no need for the backend options then maybe a simple buy now – paypal or stripe button ….. but they will still make 3rd party requests.
