Website too slow in loading

Post by winbelltrade » Mon Oct 07, 2019 3:37 pm

I am using Joomla! 3.9 for a news website. The load time for the front and back end is too slow. However sometimes it loads more faster than other times. I am not too technical as I am new to joomla.

I have ran a test on the site with and attached is the output.
Please I need assistance as it is sending my visitors away.

Going by your GTmetrix report, it seems that you need to optimise your images.
(Try reducing the file size.)

GTMetrix is giving you suggestions for improving your scores. You'll need to educate yourself about each suggestion and then undertake those suggestions.

My first recommendation is to install an Extension like JCH Optimize which will do some of the work for you.

Serving the scaled images can be time consuming. Is there any plugin you can use?

I would go through all my images, optimize them and also upload them at the correct size they will be rendered at. (eg. If a 600 x 600px image is being seen at 300 x 300px, rescale the image in Photoshop to 300 x 300 and reupload.
