Hi Tom: Google page speed has added some strange (for me) parameters that maybe you have some ideas to rectify… these came up on my webpage:
Ensure text remains visible during webfont load
Leverage the font-display CSS feature to ensure text is user-visible while webfonts are loading. Learn more.
The most common causes of a poor CLS are:
· Images without dimensions
· Ads, embeds, and iframes without dimensions
· Dynamically injected content
· Web Fonts causing FOIT/FOUT
Summary: Always include width and height size attributes on your images and video elements. Alternatively, reserve the required space with CSS aspect ratio boxes. This approach ensures that the browser can allocate the correct amount of space in the document while the image is loading.
Thanks for your consideration

My website is suddenly loading slower. In GT Metrix, this is what I get highlighted in red.
Any idea what I should do?June 12, 2020 at 4:43 pm #1325704TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
generatepress.ttfis our icons, which is a tiny file and shouldn’t make any real difference to your page speed.
However, it is better to use SVGs, which you can turn on in Customize > General. This will be the default in GP 2.5.0 🙂June 12, 2020 at 5:09 pm #1325724Howard

This is a type of image file, if I’m not mistaken— or fonts??

Thanks all- will do some experimenting.
Ironically (??), GT Metrix still gives me 💯 % on All my page scores- without using SVG’s or— WEBp images!!!
(Here is a tip for ALL generatepress users that I doubt more than 5% of the population might know:)
Compress ALL YOUR images with ‘OPTINZILLA’ online image compression. You’ll get all your image scores on GTmetrix at 98-100% EVERY TIME!!!! Only problem: they won’t convert WEBp—- but who cares ; for NOW!!June 13, 2020 at 9:04 am #1326512DavidStaffCustomer SupportJune 13, 2020 at 9:27 am #1326544Howard

I solved my problem after testing every single plugin I have. The problem was Elementor Pro.
I removed both Elemtor and Elementor Pro and the site is fast again.June 13, 2020 at 4:31 pm #1326838TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
If you’re looking for a lightweight way to build your content, our GenerateBlocks plugin might be worth checking out: https://generateblocks.comJune 16, 2020 at 11:09 am #1330347Matthias
we do encounter the same issue on https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgesundheit-koerper-seele.com%2Fcbd-oel-wirkung-inhaltsstoffe-anwendung%2F&tab=desktop&hl=de
The strange part is, that I have enabled icon type SVG and it still happens. I use Lightweight Social Icons in the header – could this be the case?
What alternative do I have to use social icons on the top?

Yes, Lightweight Social Icons use an icon font, so it will be the same thing.
Best thing is to use plain SVG icons as your social icons.
Once we release GPP 1.11.0 with Block Elements, you’ll be able to build icons with GenerateBlocks and hook them into the theme. Working on it 🙂June 17, 2020 at 3:29 am #1331023MatthiasJune 17, 2020 at 4:45 am #1331082Ian

Any idea when this might be? I’m absolutely desperate for this on one of my new sites!June 17, 2020 at 9:24 am #1331595
