I’m using the ‘Bold’ theme on my site and ran a GTMetrix test. I get a score of ‘F’ in YSlow for two items.
I’m not a programmer/web-developer. I did see this thread ‘https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/improving-y-slowness-scores/’ but I’m unsure if that’s universal advise or one that’s specific to that site.
Here are my ‘F’ score limitations.
Make fewer HTTP Requests:
This page has 8 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
Use a Content Delivery Network:
This has a long list of JS and CSS file names – numbering more than 30.
What’s the best way to combine CS and JSS files?
How can I improve these scores?January 5, 2020 at 8:07 pm #1123149Vinod
I read about CDN and I understand its clearly not something I need. Being able to optimize HTTP requests should be good enough.January 6, 2020 at 2:08 am #1123277DavidStaffCustomer Support
our Optimization tips should help you with that:January 6, 2020 at 5:05 am #1123393Vinod
That did help. Instant improvement in score. Should do for now. Thank you.January 6, 2020 at 5:07 am #1123396Vinod

Hi. I had to deactivate Autoptimize because it took out my fonts. Despite ‘Google Fonts’ being set to ‘Leave as is’ as recommended on https://generatepress.com/fastest-wordpress-theme/
Another user of Autoptimize had a similar problem. https://wordpress.org/support/topic/autoptimize-removed-font-on-main-page/
This said that ‘a.htheme_no_logo’ needs to be added to CSS optimization exclusion list.
Added the exclusion and nothing changed. No fonts still.
Is there a generatepress/theme specific exclusion I should be adding?
Thank you.January 7, 2020 at 3:40 pm #1125140Vinod
Technically, The low YSlow problem is resolved. But it just led to another problem. If you need me to create a new thread, let me know.January 8, 2020 at 4:58 am #1125476DavidStaffCustomer SupportJanuary 8, 2020 at 5:31 am #1125499Vinod
New thread created at https://generatepress.com/forums/topic/autoptimize-taking-out-fonts-across-the-site/
Closing this as resolved.
