      That’s exactly what I did, I had to make a clone of my website and then delete all the customization I did to my child themes and start from zero. And I had 2,500 lines of code.

    i’m looking but there is nothing in my child theme to update.

    – The css folder only has custom-styles.css which is my own custom css
    – The images folder just has lots of backgrounds for the Sparkle options which i never use

    Then i have:

    – content-page.php and content-single.php which have both been updated from the latest version
    – custom-functions.php which is my own customization

    Then finally:

    – style.css which is just about empty with no css.

    The sparkle theme folder has been updated with the latest version. The themes new version and speed should show right?

    Make sure you are also following standard speed procedures like minimizing css, php, images, text, using as fewer plugins as you can, making sure your website is not creating too many requests. If you notice in my picture my website is making 50 requests as compare as your 150 requests.

    Standard speed procedures are essential and always followed. I guess i’ll have to start finding ways to make it faster.

    Your home page is image heavy, find a way to reduce the images or a way to deliver those images faster since your website is taking 10 seconds to load.

    strange, i ran gtmetrix again and the result are much better: https://goo.gl/photos/fmwkuoCt2oAzjCAy8

    I spent a lot of time on speed a while ago but been slacking recently, lol main problem is with Defer parsing of JavaScript. I’m using WP Rocket for cache which is pretty good.

    Posts are the most important for me as most visitors go directly to the post from social networks and google.

    Although having 100 on pagespeed it’s awesome, I don’t care that much about it. I care more about the time. Cuz that’s the only thing customers care right?

    I think the best time range to have is between 1s to 4s anything above will drive customers away. No one waits that long for something to load. 6s it’s still acceptable but not optimal. Also remember most people on the go use 4g network speed or less. Only a few privilege people have LTE. Meaning a one second page will translate to 2s and so on.

    Implement lazy load. That will help also compressing the images so that they are not bigger than 100kb

    Cheers for the ideas Erick, already compress images will activate lazy load. Just gotta sort out that facebook stuff!

    So all that Facebook junk is coming from the themes facebook page widget right? I don’t use that widget on any posts which is what i was testing the speed on.
