Tagged: mobile header text-no response

Hello on the other-side of the World,
Aside from populating my site with more info and addressing odds & ends, my site is ready for Prime-Time…except for this unresolved issue: on the Mobile site, the name of my site, Performance of Speaking, takes 1.94 seconds to load. This loads after the tag line which has more text, after the photo with adjacent text, after both the upper and lower nav bars. So all elements of the Header are in place when the site opens, except the Name of the site. Strange.
I know the text is coming and I wait, but a new-comer might not know it’s enroute and might simply click off. Sorry Tom.
I questioned this issue on this forum about a month or 2 ago and it was suggested that I look into other forums for answers. Well I did just that. After about 2 months, the Studio Press forum produced only 1 result. The potential answer was this: maybe having to get the “Oswald” font from google is slowing it down. Well, probably not, as the tag line is also “Oswald” and it shows up on-time, about 1.94 seconds before the site Title text. So,
I really need to resolve this and I don’t know how. I figure, maybe in the early days of working with Legacy, I might have selected something that created this result, but I have never touched the mobile code. So that limits this problem to everything above it in css and I don’t have a clue….Do You?
Thanx for the help,May 17, 2013 at 8:32 pm #4747This reply has been marked as private.May 17, 2013 at 9:31 pm #4749
We get a lot of questions here in the forum so don’t be surprised if no one is able to reply, or if a reply comes later than you expect. Keep in mind, everyone that responds to questions here are volunteering there time for free….it’s mostly Wes doing all of the work. I’m here part time answering when I can, but we’re both pretty busy 🙂
If other users didn’t reply it’s probably because they didn’t have a solution. Anytime that happens, it’s best to either try the StudioPress forums, or you can do a Google search…or you could hire someone to figure it out for you. A lot of questions can be answered from Googling….at least from my experience.
The best thing I can recommend is trying a plugin called Y-Slow…or maybe you could search for a site that analyzes your site to see why its running slow. It could also just be your host. If you have a cheap host, it most likely won’t be fast. Other than that, I have no idea what the issue is, and it appears no one else knows either. That’s why I recommend Googling, or hiring a “Speed & Performance” expert.
Hope that helps 🙂

Prior to relocating from LA to tokyo I was a volunteer Reader-Recorder in my home studio producing recorded books-n-periodicals for the Braille Institute in LA. I averaged between 20-25 hours per month and found it was always well received. I’m a big supporter of volunteer activities…thanx for your effort.
The situation with my website is not slo-2-load. Actually it loads quite quickly, the issue is with the Title line, H1, showing up after all the other Header text + a photo appear. Anyway, I’ll take your advice and at a later time, after this website has had enough exposure and I know what I need, I’ll locate someone much more capable than me and let that person clean-up the code and other small issues I see.
Thanx from Tokyo,
