I'm having a slowdown of my pages loading times which seems to be being caused by the subscribers box/widget taking so long to load fully in the screen. I did message support, but got a bog standard set of links to go and read for myself and a 'if you have lots of subscribers the widget takes longer to load' kinda reply.
My site is brand new so I only have two subs so far anyway, but does that mean if I get 000's of subscribers which I need, the issue will be much worse? :(
I will summarise the issue below:
Subscribers Widget, and actually Facebook/Twitter ones slowing my page loading time terribly. I originally had a subscribers box in the header and the footer because it's really important to my site to get subscribers, but had to take out the one from the footer to speed up page loading times slightly.
To my simple way of thinking, on the face of it could it not just be a form (just like the Contact Us form which loads quickly) which would make the page in turn then load much faster? There must be a solution to this, well I hope so as it's driving me insane, and no doubt Google will not be thinking my page is particularly user friendly as the page is slow to load.
I did look at setting up cache rendering, but when I turn it on, on a page it turns it on everywhere, including on my Forum pages, so that's no good, when I turn it off on the Forum page, it turns it off everywhere. Even if it worked properly, it would temporarily speeds things up for existing users, but it's still no good for new page visitors.
Hoping it's not been caused by something I've done when I loaded the box. If it's not me are Wix aware and fixing the issue?
Thanks for Reading.
