    I see. Elementor is a big offender when it comes to pagespeed so I am trying to remove it entirely from my plugins. Adding another plugin would do the opposite to what I’m trying to do – remove heavy plugins from my site to increase response and pageload times.

    Gutenberg is a much cleaner pagebuilder (from an html and on-page code perspective) and much faster as well.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately I cannot leave my caching plugin deactivated on my live site. I can confirm though that after deactivating WP Rocket, I navigated to a ‘private’ browser in my iPhone on Safari and the issue still persists.

    Note that I have not tested on any other device apart from an iPhone and i’ve seen this issue for over a year now but never actually documented it with you.

    Solution for this topic

    Looks like this was as a result of a piece of JS added in the settings. I removed it and it worked

    Following up with this.. I can start a new ticket here as well but figured I’d piggyback off of this  one since it’s the same topic..

    Hello,

    I’d like to follow up with this ticket and see if Shufflehound has began to prioritize pagespeed using Goggle’s lighthouse and/or Google’s pagespeed insights and if you are actively working to improve your theme’s scores through these tools. Right now the scores are pretty dismal across the board despite me personally having integrated caching at multiple levels, image compression and optimization tools, and even asset managers like Asset Cleanup Pro.

    All the way back in 2018, Google announced that pagespeed will be a ranking factor. More recently, they’ve integrated pagespeed tools into their webmaster tools and have made algo changes specifically targeting pagespeed. These pagespeed insights are based off of lighthouse, not GTMetrix and ratings can vary drastically between the two.

    If pagespeed has not been a #1 priority for this theme recently, I would really like to argue that it become one. Using Google’s Pagespeed Insights and Lighthouse tools as a benchmarking tool instead of just GTMetrix. Lighthouse should be the #1 tool that’s used considering the rating from this tool will have the highest impact on your theme’s searchability.

    Has anything changed on this topic? Last modified date is pretty common in themes.

    Hello, thanks for the reply. Do you happen to have a rough eta when an update will be out to fix the issue?

    Here’s a pic of the settings.

    Hello

     

    Thanks for the links! I have already incorporated a number of the tactics that are on these lists, including:

    • Incorporate a caching plugin
    • Incorporating a CDN
    • Incorporating an image compression plugin (ewww)

    What I’m not capable of is more of the development that remains in order to get the theme and other areas of my site up to par with pagespeed insights. In particular for mobile.

     

    Is there someone on your team that can assist with this? I’m happy to also speak with someone regarding custom dev work to pay for this.

    Hmm, it’s no longer doing it now. Thanks

    Hello, thanks for the update. I can confirm that the right rail issue that I was seeing is resolved, but the social media share buttons on the left are still showing some weirdness. Please see attached video and link in the private field.

     

    Any quick css changes i can make in the stylesheet to fix this?

    Thank you. I’ll likely add it directly into the layout. I was trying to find the file to add the yoast breadcrumbs into but didn’t have any luck. Could you share the file would I add in the yoast breadcrumbs into for the slider post stye? Really appreciate it!

    Thanks. Will this be fixed in a future release? If so, do you happen to have an ETA for this next release?

    Also seeing some issues on scrolling when scrolling past the featured image. The browser is jumping to the top. See the screen shot and movie attached.

    That fixes the issue until you scroll down past the featured image at the top. See attached video.

     

    I also noticed that the social media share buttons don’t work if you scroll past the featured image (e.g. scroll half way down the page and click on any of the share buttons – they don’t work). Can you help with this?

    Thanks. That fixed the right rail, but removed the share. Is there any way to get both the share bar and my right rail to work properly? That would be ideal..

    Yes, that fixed it, however the reason I had that disabled is because it broke another element on all of my pages – the right rail. See the image below where (in the page builder) the ad is supposed to be on the right hand side but is now wrapping below the content. Can you help with this?

    Hello,

     

    I can’t disable it as this is my production site and it will break the experience. But, I can give you access to temporarily do this. Can you please comment here when you start troubleshooting and when you’re completed? I just updated the latest theme with what was released to themeforest this morning. No impact.

    I’ve created credentials for you to do this. Please re-enable caching as soon as you’re completed testing. Thanks

    Login credentials below. Note that you’ll need to enable it in the settings (I disabled it until a fix can be made).
