Big gap, why? - priest1311 - 03-17-2014 08:39 PM

Hi All,

We run a magento shop, but we see a big gap in loading from 1 second to 3 seconds almost nothing happends...
What can we do about this?
Please see the test here: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/140317_F7_633/1/details/

Looks like loading the JS blocks everything. Try to put that at the bottom of the <body>. That should fix the problem.

Thanks , let us check that.

But we do see that magento is different when it comes to above the fold loading and defering javascript. Is there someone here who has great experience in magento Java script and above the fold loading?

Maybe push as much js to a single external file as far as possible and then defer the loading of that js. Any left over inline js should be independent of the external js, you just need to determine what aspects of your render need js, perhaps a banner? (Didn't want to look at your, um, website...) then see if you can work around it.

We have a dropdown menu... can that be something that might need JS?
