Our website is running extremely slow.
Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:
http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css?ver=4.6.1 (I’m not sure if this one is because of the circle flip theme, but I included it just in case)
Our site runs extemely slow compared to the prior one. I downloaded and installed the W3 Total Cache plugin to help with the issues. And it did help a little, but these issues are still being flagged.
Is there a way to fix this issue? There is an awful lot of coding on each page some due to the slider revolution plugin (which I am currently addressing as well).
We are using your theme on 3 other sites as well, which are having the same issue. I’d appreciate any help you can give me on making our sites faster.
Thanks a bunch!

Actually we have re-structured Circleflip in Version 3.0 to optimize the code, so as you can see we are loading only few stylesheets, and 2 js files “lib.js” and “main.js”.
The only issue here is that we are loading the js files in the header, and to move them to the footer that will require alot of effort to do as this will be a major change, so it’s not gonna be available soon.
I have checked your website, and it actually loaded fast from the first time viewing it without caching … and i am not sure if you are activating W3 Total Cache plugin.
I suggest activating the W3TC minification option, this should help.

I’ve checked your website from another device and as you said it kept loading for so long, I think this issue is related to your hosting, the response time sometimes takes long, sometimes it’s so fast, it’s unstable.November 29, 2016 at 6:40 pm #10722
Thank you for responding. Yes I ran that diagnostic too and got similar results, but for some reason I am still getting complaints about the loading times. I was told it was a little faster but definitely not as fast as our competitors sites open up.
I even went so far as to remove most of the animated sliders from the site because I thought that may be causing an issue. It helped a bit but not as much as I had hoped. I do have the total cache activated and that did help some as well.
I may have to look into utilizing a CDN. Thank you again for getting back to me.
