I seem to be having some issues with the loading speed of the site.
Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of real world things to look at?
running lighthouse etc gives me some areas but not sure how to actually “fix” these
It doesn’t seem that bad to be honest. The main issue (if you look at the network tab => all) is that you are downloading lots of resources from the same URL and the browser will limit how many connections you can make to the same origin. You haven’t done anything obviously bad but the way to solve it is to try and either move some of the resources to another origin like a CDN or otherwise combine some of the JS into a single file.
There are various ways to do this statically or dynamically but I often use gulp or webpack to do this once and then I deploy the single file and reference it in my site.
Thank you so much for the tips.
Will have a look into this and give it a try!
