Dear Team,

We have recently upgraded to Ella 6.4.2 theme which is very slow compared to the previous version.

Kindly look into this.

Thanks

Hello @seema111 

Optimizing your Shopify store is time-consuming. Themes are made up of Liquid, HTML, CSS, and JSON, JavaScript code. When you edit or customize the themes, file sizes can increase and affect your store speed

 

If there's code in a render-blocking URL that's not critical, you can keep it in the URL, and then mark the URL with async or defer attributes.

 

Once you've identified critical code, move that code from the render-blocking URL to an inline script tag in your HTML page. When the page loads, it will have what it needs to handle the page's core functionality.

 

You need to work on the following points: these are the common factors that we are using to improve the store speed.

 

  • Theme Upgrade if there is a scope and upgraded theme available
  • Reduce JS Payload.
  • Use Critical CSS .
  • Replace GIFs With Static Images
  • Reduce Large Image Sizes
  • Migrate Tracking Codes To Google Tag Manager
  • Compress Images
  • Limit Third Party JavaScript & Shopify Apps
  • Preload Web Fonts. 
  • I would suggest limiting to one and using a standard web font.

By fixing these issues, your website speed score can definitely improve.

If anything is missed out or unclear then don't hesitate to ask.  We will surely help you. 

Have a nice day !
