WP Defer Loading
Pages load slower / CSS issue (2 posts)

    When using this plugin alongside a few other popular basics I did a speedtest on my website. It was around 1.45s average load time, but after loading this plugin it increased to 4-5s average loading time.

    It also seems to interfere with Shortcode Ultimate styling.

    Not knowledgeable enough to know why or how, but that's what happened.

    Thanks for posting your issue.
    The total load time is all HTML, scripts and CSS are loaded into the browser. If all work well the total load time should not change. The total load time. This plugin change when your scripts load and not how fast they load.
    Please see also: https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/best-practices/payload#DeferLoadingJS
    The plugin can set new dependencies between some scripts and so let increase the total load theoretical, but also in that case the most important parts (the HTML DOM structure) will load faster.

    The plugin should not influence CSS styling, unless some of your CSS style are set or manipulate by Javascript. Also notice the plugin unhooks wp_print_footer_scripts and wp_print_head_scripts, these hooks should not contain CSS.

    Please could you describe your Shortcode Ultimate styling issues in more detail?
    Also i want to know if there are any Javascript errors after activation the plugin.
