Big Load time for one Page

Post by dejvo01 » Thu Oct 29, 2015 11:38 pm


I post article: ... th-divorce on my web.

It is a bit longer than usual, but has 3 times more load time that another pages.
Pingdom page speed:!/evDDAr/http:// ... th-divorce

Images are optimized so I don´t think that longer text could make 3x more load time.

Can somebody help me?

If you look at the waterfall tab on the Pingdom report you can see that it is taking a long time to initiate the loading of your images. And on this page there are more images and so more waiting for each one - this all adds up.

It looks like images from the JVRelatives component causes the most delay.

After that, there is a stack of JavaScript files for Facebook . Even though they are using using a CDN, the response time from that server is much slower than the server hosting your Joomla application.
