Not sure, if it is the right group, please assign to the right group if not.
I have been having this issue for long and I really think, I might be doing something wrong or something not right. My client wants me to use page builder plugins like and mostly Visual Composer. Then there are a few slider plugins, like layer Slider, Revolution slider and so on. For some reason, he wants to use both the slider plugin and visual composer, when he knows, he would never be editing content and I need to be doing it in the future. Also, there are tons of other plugins, mostly using JS. This most often than not, puts me into a situation where I need to work a few days more on the speed based on the gtmetrix and pingdom results (which are generally inifying and making smaller images) but that does not always help as there are a lot of http requests. What am I missing here? How do I speed up the site with those and those many plugins in use? What would be the best way forward?
*Note: The sites that I generally do from scratch are generally fast. Also the client is using a VPS to host his site and the VPS is decent enough as well.
While the fixes I make do make it a tad bit faster, but I want to change the approach so this issue doesn't occur.
How do you guys go on handling this?
