Website Slow on All Page Transitions


My website is really slow between clicks. Sometimes up to 15 seconds before it changes pages. Doing an inspection in the developer tools it’s throwing a few errors and the bulk of time is centered around one function, but the Js file is compressed, of course, so the function names are just one letter and hard to trace.

Reading some of the other posts, potential culprits could be large images, and extra breakpoints. I reuse the same images througout the site, and thought they might be cached, so that’s one question.

Is there client caching and expiration dates on images so that the client uses the local copy without an additional fetch for each use?

Anything else that could be making it so slow?

I’m going to go in and make changes for breakpoints and images soon, but I noticed that the Editor X team likes to see the slow sites in action, so I thought I post the link here first before I make changes.

Thank you for your time

The site I made in editorx is also very slow. The sad part is performace is really poor in mobile view. it even crashes. Maybe they are still in beta so got a lot of stuff to optimize.

Thank you!!

Any findings?

I had a look at your website. I’m surprised at how slow it is. It crashed on me too. There’s not much content there so I’m very surprised - it should be lightning fast and stable.

Right? It has me puzzled. Thanks for verifying.

The only thing I can think of is images and image caching. When I built it it was my first time on Wix and I didn’t use the image library. And some of the images are large. I’m working on my MVP #2 now and making different choices to see what happens, and where it bogs down.

on a very late update (:flushed:) it now runs pretty quick (and my machine’s a tad slow, so). nice design btw.

@ricardoherrera994 Thanks! Performance did eventually get a lot better as Wix rolled out progressive updates. I also started using the image library feature, which I’m guessing also helped. Thanks for the compliments on the design. (I’m already ready for a fourth update, as I have more time.)
