When I have the category selection and search options available is there a way to add a “loading gif” to let the viewer know that the results are loading it’s just taking some time to load . When I select a category or try to search it can take a about 15-30 seconds before any results show up. Nothing is happening during that load time to let a person know it is loading.
This would be a feature request for the theme or if I can insert it with some code please let me know.03/07/2017 at 11:02 am #414587
No, there is no way without some custom JS to add a loading git/CSS animation. There’s no reason for a search of change of category to take 30secs. Can I see?03/07/2017 at 11:11 am #414605
Sure. I’ll send you a private login.03/07/2017 at 11:26 am #41460703/07/2017 at 12:08 pm #414608
Looking at the load time for the home page vs the rep page vs the rep page being filtered by category, I see less than a second difference of page load time. About 8–10secs total.
I would say there is negligible performance impact, which is expected.
It takes the server about 3sec just to start sending data to the browser. You should shoot for half a second, max, for the best SEO and user experience. Server side cache will help a lot.
Seems there are two CSS file blocking page loading from the theme, causing a 4sec load delay.
These two files are returning 404 not found errors.
The following file is also returning 404 not found:
- [REDACTED / 3rd party site]/images/youtube_video.png
It does not appear to be blocking loading, but certainly does not help.
Hope this helps!
