I think I have found the size limit for a page here- http://ac-monkeywrench-models.yolasit... . But I do not know how to find the size in KB. It got very slow to work with ading widgets and content at the very last few additions. I know bandwidth is a big limiter, maybe it needs an increase!

Hi Kent,

We don't impose a size limit on pages and your page loads fine for me. When you're accessing the page, is it slow to load in the site builder or your published page?

Could you also let us know what browser you are using and if you could possible try a different browser to compare.

Is slow response time while building the pages. The finished pages load without any problem. I guess could be the load on my PC, but I have alot of memory and very good graphics card.

Hi Kent - there is quite a lot of content on that page, so that could be it. You may want to try different browsers to see if it loads faster. You could also try different computers on different networks to see whether there is a difference in load times.

I have some pages much larger to make, would you suggest to split them into more than one page?

Hi Kent

I think splitting them is a great idea. These pages can be hidden. You can add back and forth arrows on the bottom of your page to navigate.

Look here for an example: http://ourtest.yolasite.com/slideshow... scroll to bottom of page.

Could it just be the amount of time I am working with the page that slows response time?

Hi kent,

The slowness of response is likely to be the amount of content on the page. Images are classically hungry and need to be controlled. You have done a good job of limiting your image sizes. Typically I see that they are less than 10 Kb so you have really conserved the content amount there.

The other aspect not mentioned is the actual speed of your connection. There can be periods when this slows a bit either from the servers or from your ISP.or anything in between.

I can't see how the amount of time spent on a page can affect the response time directly.

Well ya'll, I finally got the big page completed after fighting with slow reponse time ( So much I would forget what I was doing at the moment), but I learned alot of little ways to get around the situation! Even is stated there is no limit set, something is gettin in the way! Just hop I do not have to go through this again, is a couple other pages that are close to this size. Well, here it is- http://ac-monkeywrench-models.yolasit...
