    Hi

    I am having an issue with the speed of the site. I asked my hosting if they can help me with this and here is what they answered:
    “If you want to increase the website speed then you will need to contact the theme provider and ask them to eliminate the render-blocking resources and un-used javascript by the theme used for your site.”

    Can you help me with that?
    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    We recommend using Autopimize and configured it here:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/configuring-autoptimize/

    GP doesn’t load any javascript unless you are using the sticky navigation or masonry infinite scroll.

    The speed of your site also depends on many other factors such as the other plugins you are using and the quality of your server/hosting is also crucial.

    If you need to determine what is causing your site to be slow, then try disabling all plugins except GP Premium to test if it makes a difference.

    Hi Leo,

    Where do I find these options on my website so I can configure them the same way?

    Also, where can I find the sticky navigation and masonry infinite scroll? I want to check if this what causes the speed issue

    New note: I asked my server again and that’s what they told me: Keep-Alive is already enabled on the server, so you need not worry about it. You are facing this issue owing to unused javascript/CSS and render-blocking resources. In this case, we suggest you contact the theme provider and ask them to have a look into this, as that will certainly help.

    Can you please help me get rid of the unused Javascript/CSS and render-blocking resources?
    I took a screenshot of the issue and it’s not from the plugins.It’s from the theme. https://www.screencast.com/t/SxaXVu6j

    Sorry not sure how we missed this.

    I also just realized that you are referring to javascript and not just jQuery.

    Which item are you referring to in this screenshot here?

    All I know is that I have an issue with my speed. I asked my hosting and they told me that the author of the theme needs to help me to get rid of unused Javascript/CSS and render-blocking resources.

    I sent you a screenshot of the result I got on my Google speed test. I don’t even understand what these items mean. Can you help me with that, please?

    Hi there,

    did you install the Autoptimize plugin?

    Which one? I’ve tried many and none of them worked. Can you suggest a plugin that works best with Generate Press?

    I have the lazyload installed on my website, but that’s it. Is it enough to optimize pictures?

    Is it a cash plugin? If so my hosting doesn’t allow me to use it.

    Its not a Page Cache, it simply combines all the necessary CSS and Javascript files, so there are fewer files for our site to load.

    If I install this plugin, should I deactivate the layzyload plugin?

    If you want.
    Autoptimize provides a Lazy Load option in its Settings.
