    Hello Sparkles !

    I have been using the theme and it’s awesome. I want to add this colorful band underneath header as shown in the demo because it looks beautiful but i’m not sure how to do it. Could you please help me configuring it ? It would be great if you gave me step-by-step instructions.

    Thanks for your support !

    hey! Maxxi
    I went through the reply but I’m kinda lost there (sorry). I don’t wanna change any color , I want it as it is in the demo.
    Could you please tell me how it will appear under the header. I can do the code implementations if needed. Just tell me which code and where to put it.

    thanks Maxxi for your support.

    hello i tried to copy this code into custom CSS in styling options. And when i save where do i have to go to enable this bar cause now is not on the site yet?

    Also if i want to then go and paste some more custom html codes into custom CSS do i just go in next line and paste another code or how do i do it?

    Does the wordpress for everycode makes new button somewhere or what?

    Can i just try first myself by your instructions and if i don’t know i will ask you to help me?

    Can you please tell me where to find online this functions.php and edit it?

    Also do i need to put this code of yours on the beginning of document or at the end and do i have to start code with some signs like this: </> ?

    Thanks,

    i located this custom-functions.php in my cPanel but when i add this code, it adds that colorbar above menu and beside i can also see the code written on the site, my site is http://upfrontdaily.com
    can you take a look at it?

    Also can you tell me why my site is so slow on computer and very very very slow on mobile. Also everything is very slow in my admin pannel of wordpress so before i change something about the site or add a new post it takes ages?? Is it the script or the server provider?

    Regards,S

    Hello thanks for advice it look fantastic.

    Yes your demo is much faster then my own page. I am trying to understand which things to close down so see if it works faster?

    Is there anything that i have to take a better look at?
    Also do i need for mobiles optimize everything as i am doing for computers, cause on my mobile it doesnt even load it take like 5 mins on wifi, i didnt even bother trying on 3G network.

    I second that

    hey what do you guys mean is better w3 cache or wp super cache?

    Is there any tool i can use to see which plugin or what maybe causing that slow site?

    I appreciate your help guys!

    That’s a debate that has being going for years. I think in my personal opinion that w3tc it’s slightly better but you need way more knowledge to be able to tweak it properly. For some the slight advantage it’s not worth it so they choose super cache.

    You can use a plugin call P3 plugin which well tell you if a plugin it’s slowing you down.

    Find the plugin here.
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/p3-profiler/

    Also you can use pingdom tools, gtmetrix.com, or Webpagetest to check what it’s taking longer to render.

    They’ll list things you need to improve, focus on them and they’ll speed your website.

    Cheers.

    Hey thanks Eric for the help.

    can you tell me what is that maxcdn i saw it is compatible with W3C.
    Also what pricing package do you use at maxcdn?

    Let’s say i will have around 5000-10.000 people on my site in a while, what server do you guys think i must have so that speed will be great for users and it will support that large user database? Also probably whenever i will upload any pictures etc etc they have to store somewhere on the server right?

    Is that all depending on server capacity? i use now Hosting24.com do you have any review on them?

    Regards, Simon

      There are also shared hosting provider that gives free maxcdn 500GB and free speed optimization. I am using one such provider…

    Hi Dermans

    I currently use the basic plan at maxcdn which I believe is around 10 dollars a month.

    Maxcdn and w3tc work in synchrony but also super cache for that matter.

    The only hosting I have ever used is hostgator. And they are quite good. But I am thinking on moving to WP engine hoster since they focus in only wordpress. Plus they come highly recommended from around the web. You should check them out but they are more expensive than your regular share hoster.

    As for your last questions I am not really sure, maybe try to contact your hosting and asked them about that.

    But I know for a fact that if you have Wp Engine and Maxcdn you are good for all that you requested and even more.

    Wp engine regular package allows 25,000 visitors. But here have a look for yourself.

    http://wpengine.com/

    Also the team at MaxCdn are excellent and I highly recommend them since they are amazing when it comes to customer support

    https://www.maxcdn.com/

    Whatever question you have regarding hosting or CDns Or speed of your website they will answer them.

    Cheers

    Hey guys,

    so here is my report now. maxCDN has done great job, reducing my backend files to under 100ms look at it here http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/uJOmR/http://upfrontdaily.com/

    But my problem with site still exists. And as you can see in report my frontend site http://upfrontdaily.com is still loading very slowly and there is also another file admin-ajax.php which has over 6sec of loading. Site shows sometimes fast load but medium it has arround 10sec which is still very slowly and it also works very slowly.

    Do you think i have to tweak my WP account or is still host bad?

    also on WP forums i also spotted to try and paste this code into functions.php

    add_action( ‘init’, ‘my_deregister_heartbeat’, 1 );
    function my_deregister_heartbeat() {
    global $pagenow;

    if ( ‘post.php’ != $pagenow && ‘post-new.php’ != $pagenow )
    wp_deregister_script(‘heartbeat’);
    }

    I tried it but it doesnt solve any prolbem…i hope i didnt do anything wrong, i pasted into Childs theme where i have also custom-functions.php

    Guys at maxCDN said that now backend files are transfered to them and processing time is under 100ms i am seeing is around 20ms so its very fast.

    But still site loads in around 10-20sec so very slowly so they said better to check with host provider and thats why i am trying to understand which host would be better or Cloud hosting or VPS or anyother maybe you know something?

    My current host cant help me..

    Hey guys i dont have any experience in using it.

    George what provider do you use? Does he have fast hosting? I would for starter need some good VPS host as Cloud is little too much for me now.
