Wix load time
Hi - grateful for any advice or help on below.

Getting very frustrated with the amount of time our home page takes to load. It was built using wix and you can see a speed test at the link below. It takes over five seconds for our home page (http://www.utilityfair.com) to even start rendering.

What is also frustrating is that wix seem to be in denial on the issue and suggest that it is our network connection or hardware which is slow...The speed test clearly shows otherwise.

Please let me know your thoughts

Thanks

RE: Wix load time
I'm only casually familiar with building sites on Wix. Are you using a bunch of plugins from them or 3rd parties? There is a LOT of Javascript loading (1.2MB compressed, over 4MB uncompressed) and it looks like they are for a bunch of modules and viewers on the page. The first 3 seconds is spent loading the script and the next 3 seconds is largely spent parsing and executing all of that script to construct the page.

If that is all from Wix (template and plugins) then the only real option is to reach out to them and ask them to improve things.

RE: Wix load time
Hi Patrick - we are not using any external plugins. Any coding on our pages is very basic. We have contacted Wix but are crawling through discussion after discussion with non technical customer service people who really don't understand (or even accept) the problems. Ideally we would love to find a way to delete most of that Javascript which is loading in the first three seconds (pull it back to what is actually required or even re-order how it loads). Thanks for your input.
