Support » Plugin: Getwid - Gutenberg Blocks » Great features and functionality but with performance problems

  • Hi, this is a really good plugin in that it offers tons of features with good UI choices. However, there are performance issues.

    Fontawesome CSS and other JS scripts are loaded on every page regardless of whether Getwid blocks are being used on those pages. This is a problem that other blocks suites do not suffer from and it’s such a shame as there’s so much promise with Getwid Blocks otherwise.

    For example: if I use one Getwid block on one page and standard Gutenberg blocks throughout the rest of the site, I still incur the performance hit of having Getwid CSS & JS files loaded on every page, globally throughout the site. It makes for poor performance optimisation. CSS and JS should only be loading on pages the blocks are used.

    Also, please, please consider using SVGs instead of Fontawesome as others do.

    Like I have said there’s lots of promise here, but for me it’s unfortunately let down by those frontend performance issues which most people who use Gutenberg nowadays are trying to get away from.
