Slow loading of images
Hi, thank you for the great tool, really like the theme, the functionalities, and options it provides. However, I have my website ready to launch but have been struggling with the loading time of the images. My photos are not small, but I have optimized them a bunch, have the WP REST API Cache plugin installed, Lazy load an image when you scroll to it, and Image Quality (.jpeg) to 70% in the settings. Still, the website takes sometimes more than 20 seconds to load, sometimes the images don't load at all.
I am aware that I have pages with many images and others with no more than 10. But with these considerations and the Lazy load that shouldn't be an issue I believe.
Have you found a way to make this work faster? This is the only reason why I haven't launched my website, to be honest.
I am testing the images in other servers and the same images load super fast, so I am guessing is something with the system instead of the optimization of the images? Thoughts?
I host with MT, I have talked to them and they said it is the template and not on their end.
Here is the link to the temp website.
Many many thanks for your help on this.
we are looking into this issue right now.
I will forward this to Armin.
Thanks, Look forward to hear back.
