    Hi I have completed the site and moved it from the test domain to a live url.

    When I run it through Google Pagespeed I get a few issues (below). Are any of these to do with the theme and is there anything I can do to improve it? Thanks

    Hi there,

    the only theme related one is:
    Ensure text remains visible during webfont load

    This is the Theme Icon font – Google likes to have a fallback font whilst it waits for a font to load. But as it is an icon there is no font it can fallback to. In GeneretePress 2.3 ( latest version ) you can switch the Icon to SVG in Customizer > General. This will remove this issue.

    Reduce server response times (TTFB) – if this is a common warning then speak with your host as its server related.

    Efficiently encode images & Serve images in next-gen formats – are actually related to an image being loaded by google maps. Which is kinda ironic.

    To make improvements to performance you would need to look at reducing requests – like is there a better alternative to font awesome, do i need the google map on the home page footer ( maps add a lot of loading time to a page ) ….

    Thank you. I will look into those things.

    The only other issue we are having When testing is images not showing on Apple computers and a Samsung s7. Is there anything you can suggest there?

    Thanks

    Can you reset Jetpacks Photon plugin?
    I also notice an error in the console relating to your Cookie bar. This could be breaking the JS for the page, so disabling that would tell if there is a conflict.

    thanks. I have changed to another cookie plugin. The site works when Jetpack is disabled. It doesn’t work if I just turn off the Site Accelerator (apparently that’s what photon is now called). Can you think of anything else I can do?

    Disabling lazy loading on jetpack seems to have fixed it. Would you agree?

    I have implemented most of your other suggestions too.

    It’s working for me. And i can see its loading considerably quicker now – 1.5seconds using a GTMetrix test.

    Yes, very pleased with the GTMetrix test. Thank you so much for all your help guys, this is by far the best support I have received for a theme. I don’t know how you manage it! I will leave you a 5* review.
