Slow speed to load

    The website that I am using this code for is taking a very long time to load.
    I have jnews speed and W3 Total Cache plugins activated.
    Speed scores on GTMetrix and Google insights are OK but the time to first paint is poor.
    Running an audit on Google Chrome gives a performance score of only 1% !!!

    Hi Guydee,

    Can you provide your site URL for further testing?

    Thank you

    Hi Guydee,

    I’ve been checked your website previously and you may need to try enable minify HTML output option. You can setup it on the Customize > JNews Speed Option > HTML Option tab > Minify HTML output. It will help reduce the page size.

    Thank you

    Hi Guydee,

    For Google Chrome Audit, we’re not making optimization yet. We will take a look at this thing.

    Also, please try to use WP Super Cache instead of W3 Total Cache plugin and check the result.

    Thank you
