Support » Plugin: Flying Pages by WP Speed Matters » Mega Menu Ajax Page Speed

    Hey there,
    I installed Flying Pages a couple of days ago and really love it.
    I noticed one thing though: My mega menu loads the entries via Ajax. As long as Flying Pages is running, the loading time increases from ~1,2s to ~2,2-5s.
    Is there a setting I missed that would help? Or could I exclude the mega menu from pre-loading?
    Best wishes

    @sonnendieb you can add the links in menu to ‘Ignore keywords’. Another option would is, configure it to preload only on mouse hover.

    Generally, you shouldn’t worry about fully loaded time. Focus on FCP, LCP, TTI and CLS.

    Hey,

    Thanks for your quick answer.

    I think in this case the fully loaded time matters, because the menu opens with mouse hover and loads the posts every time you do that. So nothing is cached and it takes 2+s now every time you do that, which renders the mega menu virtually unusable. That is probably not a very good implementation of the mega menu entries, but that is how my theme does it alas.

    I am not sure the ignore keywords would help here. As I understand it, it would only stop loading the links that you actually hover with your mouse over, not the additional mega menu entries in the hover popup, right?

    Best wishes

    @sonnendieb share url with GTmetrix report and other complete details.

    The blog hasn’t launched yet, so it is not available publicly. But I can open it and run the test and send you the login details later if that would help.
