    Hey Bill,

    I’m having trouble with my webpage… for whatever reason I can’t seem to get the background images to load properly in safari and firefox although it usually works in chrome. It also seems like the theme is pointing to some google fonts and sending back an error message.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Elan

    Hello Elan,

    It looks like there is a jQuery error on the page that’s keeping the background video from appearing like it should. Specifically, I don’t see the jQuery that the theme uses (tinynav, supersized) loaded at all.

    Sometimes minification plugins miss scripts that need to be present. That would be the first thing I would check. Try disabling whatever minification service you’re using and see how things are then. If it’s not better, then turn off all plugins and see how you’re doing then. If it’s better, then turn them back on, one by one, until it stops working again.

    Let me know how it goes,
    Bill

    Well I think I figured out why the images weren’t loading… I had the slide duration set to 43500 instead of 4500 so that must have been the issue.

    I feel like my backend of wordpress runs really slow and my actual site is definitely not the speediest. I just disabled my calendar widget and it did speed up the page a bit but of course I would have rather not disabled it. Maybe All-In-One Event Calendar is a problematic plugin.

    Should I consider a VPS to speed up the site?

    Could you recommend me to someone who could do some speed optimizing and general cleanup for me? Of course I don’t want to spend a ton but of course I could use some guidance and assistance.

    Thanks!

    I ran quick speed test at http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/bzoKP7/http://dzakinsdeli.com on your site. On a shared host 1.49 seconds is pretty fast. The main javascript that the event calendar loads did take a bit, but that might not be that big of a deal. Less than 1.5 seconds should feel pretty snappy for your visitors. I’m not a fan of that plugin, but if it works for you, I wouldn’t change anything.

    I don’t have anyone to recommend in optimizing it for speed. My go to freelancers have all gotten long term projects and aren’t taking on new work for the foreseeable future.
