Envira album page STILL loading slow

I would have added to the last topic I created, but it is locked…

My envira album page is loading really really slowly, and i can’t figure out why. It was recommended that i disable the Photo Module of the Jetpack plugin, so I did that, but it didn’t seem to help. All other pages on my site are loading very quickly, except for the album page.


Hey there,

Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked your gallery page and I see you’re using very high resolution images on that page which of course takes a lot of time to load and display it to the user. If you’ve slow internet connection this load time will further increase due to the heavy images. For the best practices I’d suggest you to please take a look at the following links and make adjustments accordingly.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the added info.

I know that I have high resolution images, but I think the problem seems to be with the album page itself. If i go directly to one of the gallery pages, it loads very quickly, and those individual pages have a lot more photos to load than the gallery page. So what would make those pages load fast, and the gallery page slow?


Upon checking, I can see your gallery page is using masonry layout and that requires some calculation by placing elements in optimal position based on available vertical space. This calculation could slowdown your page load.

Please optimize your images and follow the guide provided by my colleague as it could surely help with your site speed.
