    Can you update your PHP version to a version like 7.3 or sth like that?
    You can do this in your Webhost Control Panel.

    yes i can see this happening.
    it seems that the cursor becomes the standard cursor as soon as right side of the custom cursor touches the left side of the scrollbar like here:

    I bet this is standard browser behaviour. I believe there's nothing you can do here but have a bigger space between the carousel and the edge.
    Or use a smaller custom cursor.

    Hey @JohannaGoldmann

    Can you update the carousel addon now and see if the error disappears?
    If not:

    can you send your website address, /wp-admin/ username and password and a link to this topic to info@laytheme.com?

    @lug said in Load JavaScript in Footer:

    Is there a way of loading all the external scripts as part of the footer rather than in the site’s head section? And, if not, is it necessary for Lay Theme to load all the external resources before upon loading the site?

    Hey @lug

    Lay Theme has many different JavaScript files, some of which need to be loaded in <head>

    Others can be loaded in the footer and they are.
    I know this is not optimal but since Lay Theme has different Addons, their js is only loaded if the addon is installed and activated.

    Please try these things:
    https://laytheme.com/documentation.html#speedingup

    And disable all plugins you don't use, even the Lay Theme ones you don't use.

    You can also use a CDN plugin, but it would be better if you could instead just use a CDN of your webhost. Cause the CDN plugins often only upload your images to CDNs.

    hi you need to wait for google to update your meta description.

    this might take some time.

    also if you use YOAST
    you need to set your frontpage in "settings" -> "reading"

    make sure the same frontpage is set in customize -> frontpage

    now when editing that page make sure the correct meta description is in there

    I believe these instructions are also in a notification I added to lay theme in either "plugins" or "lay options" when yoast is activated

    also the website description meta tag that your screenshot shows will not be in use if you have yoast activated to prevent duplicate meta tags.
    you'll have to do the above and enter the text of your screenshot to the yoast meta tag of your frontpage.

    Hey @josehoudini and @Richard-Keith

    In Chrome when I press Command + Alt/Option and i

    and switch to the performance tab and record the performance and load the site I see:

    The network request part takes 2 seconds which I think is a little long

    The file sizes look ok.
    In General for speeding up your website try this:

    • Use a WordPress caching plugin
    • Make sure "Lay Options" → "Lazy Loading" is activated
    • Try to use video files that are smaller in file-size
    • Use HTML5 videos instead of gifs (doesn't apply here)
    • Disable any plugins you don't use
    • Try and see if you can use a CDN in your webhost control panel
    • Ask your webhost why your site might be loading slowly, if maybe for example the server is slow. Maybe you can upgrade your webhosting package to a faster one.
    • In your case you could also try disabling "lay options" → Disable Ajax / Compatibility Mode, It seems like you have this option activated. This can at least speed up subsequent pageloads when you click on links on your website. It does not speed up the initial website page load
    • If you use HTML5 videos on desktop and use the same videos for phone, they might be too big for phone. In this case you could create a Custom Phone Layout and insert Videos with smaller file size. "Handbrake" is a desktop app that I recommend for compressing videos. Or you could just use YouTube or Vimeo Videos.

    Yes, as it says in the documentation, the folder name should be:
    /slider-for-laygridder-com/

    in lay options → carousel addon

    in the settings make sure the numbers and captions are set to - not - be hidden

    then when u edit a carousel, select an image and use the button "edit caption"

    if that doesn't work:

    can you send your website address, /wp-admin/ username and password and a link to this topic to info@laytheme.com?

    @emidio said in Change colour site title and nav:

    when changing the page, if the background is of a different color, the title doesn't change. I guess there should be an event trigger on load??

    no this is done purley with css:
    this should work:
