Render blocking javascript above the fold


Recommended Posts

Google is warning me I've got some render blocking javascript going on 'above the fold'

There's about 9 javascript instances in the uploads folder causing it - an example below

Any ideas?


There error message from Google is

Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

Your page has 8 blocking script resources and 7 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

Google Page Speed is showing you areas where you MIGHT improve things, if that works for your site. But that’s just an algorithm talking. You might actually not want to deliver your site with certain JavaScripts and CSS rules loaded later. 

Just for fun, I just picked the first Google owned web forum I could find and let it check in Google Pagespeed. I got only 70/100 with the same page blocking warning. Even Google has no problem delivering forums like this. ;-)

Yeah I have that active and still get the message, have attached what it says

I think you have a problem with your desktop theme.

The mobile version of your theme work properly and JS are not a problem


Desktop version don't load ads. This render blocking all resources JS and CSS.


Refer to the author of your theme upgrade.

Yeah, your site loads fine WITH blocking resources. That’s my point actually!

Effects of render blocking JS is 4 points. So only is this dependence. To speed site are many factors influencing and I agree with you.

Here is an example my site JS in header Site

I see that the theme is the same. But your theme work properly for mobile. For desk has a problem. Probably outdated templates ...

Some templates have been edited, but I did look at theme differences whenever upgrading and made sure to update them. Any idea which template could be the issue? globaltemplate looks ok to me and that seems to be the one where it sets the js

It's very easy.;)

Many years reading, analysis, testing - too many different web tests ... etc
When IPS started 4.0 I noticed very much effort saving ... so I became a client. ha ha...

For me it is very easy ... and now if you do test my live site will get the same results. If you do the test result GtMetrix will receive 100% speed score:)
