Yeah, I’ve been working on performance and have discovered everything you guys have.
Right now, my UNUSED CSS and JS is 89.5%!!!!!
I have done EVERYTHING one is supposed to do to get high speeds, but no matter what there is no way to “minify” the boatloads of code that is being served, which are RENDER-BLOCKING RESOURCES. So Avada team can say that the extra code isn’t hurting anything like they did early on in the post, but the powers that be that decide if your fast enough disagree. And sadly, the ones that disagree are the ones that make the rules.
AVADA TEAM – I WAS going to renew my support for the theme. Now it looks like I have to spend a weekend rebuilding my site with a theme that actually works with what the internet calls for. WILL YOU BE DOING ANYTHING TO FIX THE HORRENDOUS AMOUNTS OF CODE IN YOUR SYSTEM???
My page load time is 7 seconds. SEVEN SECONDS! My server is quick as heck, EVERYTHING is optimized, but the “thread work” on the page visitor’s device is insane – the Avada theme blows up the client device with piles of code to render, and 90% of that code isn’t even used….
THIS IS A LEGIT ISSUE. If I/we don’t hear anything back from the AVADA TEAM, then I personally am going to switch my theme, and write a blog post about WHY I switched my theme, and how to do it…. The CSS validator errors are just unacceptable along with the 90% of CSS/JS that DOESN’T GET USED!!!
