I have just upgraded to yola silver. Now, it takes ages to open my web page and not all pictures download. Widgets etc download quick but own pictures do not download. Everything works fine on the design page. Also, templates are added that I have no choice on removing or leaving. Zach

Hello Zach,

Upgrading to Silver wouldn't affect the speed of your site. The speed is affected by the content you add and whether your internet connection is working optimally or not.

I've taken a look at your home page ( and I see that the image you have is over 300kb in size. That's quite big for an image to display on a website and it will affect the download size.

Here's how to fix it:
1. Remove the picture from the Text Widget you've added it to.
2. Add it underneath the text using the Picture Widget.
3. Click on "Edit" on the Picture Widget and in the dialog box that opens, choose to optimize the image (bottom left).

This will make your image size web-friendly and quicker to load.

I hope that helps! Please let us know if there are other pages that you would like us to advise you on.
