Hello Garret,

The most common cause of slow loads is the graphics used on your site. I haven't seen your site so I can only generalise.

Images should be kept to a size of 100 kb maximum for jpg and preferably 50 to 60 kb for an image of 500 x 300 px.

At the moment there have been a few reports of slow loads of Yola sites so this may be a contributing factor as well.

Thanks, I checked the load speed and realized it is somewhere in the css templates, after reading this reply. I shall fix.

Cheers

Hi Garret,
Thanks for reaching out to the Yola community for assistance. I wanted to stop by and let you know that I just opened every page on your site and they all responded very quickly for me!
