Good Morning Fleeky,

Exactly, headaches, that is what this mobile-friendly issue is causing me and I am quite fed up.

You know my websites, very simple, left and the middle is occupied by the post text and on the right is the sidebar with widgets.

Some time ago I did a total fiddling with all my plugins to see if I could speed up a bit. Activate, deactivate, making combinations, etc and the whole time checking how the speed was. It did become clear which ones lowered speed considerably so if I could miss them out they went.

Somebody suggested the WP Touch plugin to make your site mobile friendly. It helped with speed, that is true. The extremely negative side was that on mobile there was nothing visible of my website. The only thing you would get was a list of posts. No header photo and no widgets in the sidebar. Looking at the list of posts it could have been any website. Your personal touch, the visual character your website has and which has cost you years to create were completely gone. I took that plugin away.

I checked my sites with WebSideGrader and the speed for mobile seems to be ok, under 3 seconds.

Greetings from the south of Spain, Taetske
