  • Resolved TomDolan



    Been extensively redesigning my site w/Genesis + Child theme. I’ve been reading that removing ‘white space’ speeds up site loading. But I really only have access to the child theme css style sheet.

    Is the white space I’ve been reading about located here, and if so how can I make it more efficient without destroying my world?

    I’m not a ‘coder’ but I’m looking for less clutter & a speedier site.

  • You can use a plugin for “minifying” CSS, but IMHO, the amount of space in CSS files is probably quite insignificant. Other factors have a much bigger impact on site load. Most of the posts in these forums about “white space” have to do with visual space in the layout of a page…not the same thing.

    Thanx for your comments. I’m occasionally using Pingdom to test site speed. The time results are at best uneven from the same 3 locations. Time of day, traffic?? More concerned about the % I rank as an indicator that my site is not performing speedily.

    I tried W3 Cache, then changed to HyperCache. Results were about the same. I see something about ‘compression’ which I don’t understand as I’ve selected browser compression in HyperCache. And so it goes…. in any event, I’ll dismiss the css as a potential issue. Thanx again.
