Athena Slider Loading Speed
June 9, 2017
The loading performance of the Athena homepage slider or Jumbotron (Pro) strongly depends on the size of the image files loaded into it.
If you’re finding there is a long delay for the slider to appear as the page loads, double check your file size under Media in the WordPress dashboard. Images size should be listed in KB, never in MB.
If the image is too large, resize the file on your computer using your default image editing software. Double check that the horizontal length is not greater than 1423px, and that you choose a web-appropriate image quality when you export the photo after editing.
Once you’ve made these changes, replace the image on your site, and delete the original file from the Media section of the WordPress dashboard.
