I finish my site and it seems (dead) slow. I know it can have many causes (and hope that I did not choose a slow Theme ) but i do not have the impression that I built and “elephant” home page.
I have deactivated all plugins and then activated one by one and noticed that my homepage (sailordudes.com) increases from 900kb to 1,8 MB as soon as I activate the soliloquy slider (I ran tests on pingdom to check the speed and size).
At the same time, I see that my theme recommends to activate the crelly slider. So now I wonder, is sydney pro perhaps faster with the crelly slider instead of the soliloquy slider?
Also, should you notice any “quick check” issues with elements that cause my slow site, always much appreciated of course. Note that I have also activated WP Rocket, also it does not seem to make a lot of difference…
