Bad Performance on SiteOrigin Slider

By Jordi PS, 10 months ago. Last reply by Alex S, 10 months ago.


My website is using SiteOrigin and does a “heavy” usage of SiteOrigin Slider.

I’m doing some performance test with Webpagetest and Google Site Speed and I’m getting awful results on Document Load times.

It seems that the Javascript event “Document Complete” is waiting all the images of the slider to load, and thus, giving google’s and the user, the perception that the website is not loaded. The load spinner of the browser keeps spinning until this event is triggered.

Is there any way to avoid the Slider to “wait” until all the images are loaded?

PS: I know I have to reduce the size of the images, because they are pretty big and don’t have the correct size, but IMHO this is another topic and does not discard the current posts’s topic.

    Hi Jordi,

    Is there any way to avoid the Slider to “wait” until all the images are loaded?

    No. The browser will always show as loading if there is something still downloading. You can minimize how long it takes by reducing your image sizes and ensuring they have correctly sized dimensions to cut down on load and render time. You can also look into lazy loading – we don’t directly have a suggestion for a lazy loading plugin.
