Happens all the time. Nothing to it. Hopefully gogo will read it.Dude... doublefacepalm)))
You're just unstoppable in your desire to teach me something. )Happens all the time. Nothing to it. Hopefully gogo will read it.
Back to your complaint - really can't see it. But again, if you study this competitor of yours maybe you'll learn some tips and tricks from him. Can't let him just kick your arse like that.
FA accounts for about 74kb typically. It's nothing in the big picture.What's the deal with FA that takes 54% of page load?
I'm simply trying to help, as lots of folks do here. If you want help, great! If not it's cool to say so.You're just unstoppable in your desire to teach me something.
2.116 sec on this test, slower on some faster on some others. F grade for not caching static content is something I would investigate.Why this thread's Start Render time is almost 4 sec?
If your full load size is only 750kb which is this thread, it's not typical of what's out there on the web. What's typical out there on the web is a page loading something like 2mb or more because of images. Or a video. Etc. The percentage of bytes for fonts goes down quickly.50.4%. Is more than a half - nothing in the big picture?
I didn't complain
Reads like a complaint to me.Yeah, explain it to those first time visitors, who was waiting for 2 secs, got tired to wait and gone.
And also to Google who placed my competitor's page above mine just because his page loads faster.
My question was to Brogan. My answer to you actually reads "Dude, I didn't ask you anything, so I don't need your answers about anything".Reads like a complaint to me.
DOES his site actually load faster, or does google like it better because it's better. Better content maybe?
You could have said so way back. But, I answer anyway, and also ask questions. It's sort of the point of message boards.My answer to you actually reads "Dude, I didn't ask you anything, so I don't need your answers about anything".
Now you know that every page of a forum loads twice longer because of FA full package. There is even more - xF uses only 5-10% of that package. And when you have this info in your head, doesn't a question appears in your head - what's the deal with FA full pack in XF?I DO see your point though
Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.Oh hey I just had a bright idea - you could open a ticket instead of hijacking another person's thread! That way other well-meaning folks won't be annoying you with their replies!
Post your findings, especially the query counts with page loads.Guys I just got up... I'll get back to you for the add-ons analysis after 12 or 36 hrs when I'm back to my PC.
Add-ons is definitely the main cause of my problem. I installed many add-ons, some are essential to the functionality of my forum and some are doing nice tricks that make life a bit easier.
I disabled all add-ons the speed is great. And then I'll re-enable them one by one in priority order and see how much impact it adds to the page load. I guess I'll have to let go more than half of the add-ons I installed.
The icons are downloaded with the page as three separate .woff or .woff2 font files which include all 7,800+ FontAwesome icons, even though the XenForo theme uses only ~262 of these icons. This means that new visitors to your site download over 385kB of data, most of which is never used.
