    Hi Guys

    Okay so we host on WP Engine
    We use WP Rocket
    And also have Cloudflare CDN

    There are options in your theme to optimise – things like Lazy Loading, And other speed optimising settings but what is not clear is which to enable in the theme, so that there is no conflict.

    Could I ask what sort of settings you might recommend to get the very best performance we can.

    Thanks

    Please, contact administrator
    for this information.

    Hello,

    Thanks for using our theme.
    Do not use the Delay JavaScript option of the WP Rocket.
    We can provide screenshots of settings from our demo site, as an example – https://gyazo.com/20b36f9bf2dd229261329256c9c74f8f https://prnt.sc/GeLDsVfOq47S https://prnt.sc/zTAJUhz0eNq5 https://prnt.sc/f1qQhGpizwoR
    Other options you need to test by yourself because depending of 3rd party plugins and additional customization, the situation on our demo and your site are not the same.
    Also, you can try to activate XSTORE Ajaxify in the settings of elements (page content) https://prnt.sc/EvzLILwXaCKt

    Hi Guys,

    Unfortunately Im confused – tried literally everything with WP Rocket, X Store Speed settings and it just doesnt make a difference.

    It would be great if someone could collate a comprehensive example of each setting in WP Rocket that matters – its confusing as your own settings lead me to think that they will conflict with duplicating settings in Rocket – that said, it would be great if you could just show how YOU guys would set it up – list of settings on theme, and then list of settings on Rocket – then aside of that any other suggestion.

    Autoload data is a problem and despite latest update I get lots of your themes autoloaded date showing up for several different things in the WP Options Table. Also some of your bundled plugins like Kirki – they also have large Autoloaded data lines.

    I’m sure there are lots of us that might benefit from a video or clear guide on what to do.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Our optimization options do not conflict with the WP Rocket options in general. But if you enabled Lazy loading for the images in the cache plugin then why do you need to enable that in theme? We added that option for those who do not use cache plugin Lazy loading. The same situation with the Remove Query Strings From Theme Static Resources option. There is no need to enable this option in both plugin and theme, choose the one place.

    that said, it would be great if you could just show how YOU guys would set it up – list of settings on the theme, and then the list of settings on Rocket – then aside of that any other suggestion.

    WP Rocket already has documentation of best practices for the configuration https://docs.wp-rocket.me/article/1291-find-the-best-settings-for-your-site
    So, you can use all the options and exclusion is “Delay JavaScript” only. You can use that option too but just add xstore/js folder to the exclusion.

    We’ll create the article in our documentation about theme optimization settings.

    Regards
