Optimizing Page Speed: Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript

Paradoxical Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I have been trying to optimize my new forum. I have fixed some of the issues, but I am at a bit of a loss in terms of fixing this issue: Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content.

Google PageSpeed Insight Report:


The report states "my page has 13 blocking script resources and 12 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page"

I am nowhere near knowledgable enough to understand how to fix this issue as it seems the more I read about it, the more I get confused. Is there anyone here that could be kind enough to help me in fixing these issues of removing render-blocking JavaScript and Optimizing CSS Delivery?


Thank you.

There is this theme setting:

Other than that: you don’t need to “fix” everything those test speed services show you. These are hints about areas where an improvement might be possible.

In fact, best practice is to put all javascript before </body> tag.


I do this, but it scrambles up my slider picture / overlay. Would that just be a problem with my theme?
