Performance check

When I view the website on my iPad and start scrolling the page refreshes very slow. Backgrounds appear only fragmented and settle down when scrolling stops. Same with other elements on the page. Could you check if I’m the only or that this is on every iPad out there?

I’m on iPad Air (2013/14) iOS 11.4

Hello @yingfuli,

Thanks for asking. :slight_smile:

I don’t have an iPad device but tested on Chrome simulator and it seems to be working fine. Please see the screencast.


Hi, thanks but a simulator uses the desktop engine so is always smooth.

Hey @yingfuli,

Just to be sure, are you seeing something like this Your site loads slow especially in slow or throttled internet connection even on desktop because your images are very large. One of your image, fengshui1.jpg, is 3 MB which is very huge to be used for web.

That is why you’re only seeing fragments loaded one at a time.

You should optimize your images. Please see our Performance article for more details.


Thanks, I figured it was something like that. However, how can an image of 3MB show in the dashboard like this?

Hi there,

It’s the optimized version of the original image, but never used. It still load the original which is the 3mb. You can compare the filename being used. Please use the optimized one.


How do I do that? I just figured if I edit the image and reduce its size it will be the reduced version that is automatically used, no?

Hello @yingfuli,

Thanks for updating the thread. :slight_smile:

Looks like you have figured it out as I can now see the optimised version of image loading.


As far as I can determine I have now made all images 160kb or less. However, scrolling still is jumpy on iPad (like this: Even when the page is fully loaded. Don’t know what more I can do to remedy that.

The image does not load bit by bit or fragmented on my end anymore (see Please try clearing your browser’s cache.


Hm, could it be specific to my iPad? It is a 2014 iPad Air so it is a bit older. It keeps giving me that jumpy, fragmented scroll.

Hello There,

Please make sure that your browser is up to date and there aren’t any other apps running while you are testing the site in your iPad. It could be related to your device resources.
