Hi all,

I am not incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to coding. However, it appears that there is far too much Javascript running on my site that I need to at least diminish. However, I don't know how to go about doing this. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Most plug-ins are java intensive. If you have too much running (they load up on the page BEFORE the page is actually displayed) you will see a whole lot of blank, before you see any page. then if you have embedded script, it will load as the page loads, so you will see blank spots on the page as it loads.
Generally not a problem, if you live in a location with incredibly fast internet speeds, but there are a lot of potential customers that don't have that luxury. so strip off the pretty, shiny, useless stuff and keep it simple, clean and fast.

Great information! Thank you and that makes a lot of sense. The problem is that i genuinely use and need every plug-in I have, outside maybe 1-2. I will definitely look into this, thanks again!

Why would you say that there is too much javascript running on your site. Are you getting an error of some kind?

When I've run some diagnostics, different SEO tools have said that JS is running too heavily on some pages and potentially slowing down site performance. Thanks for the quick response
