  • I have a site that loads under 2 seconds without this plugin. It’s running on the latest version of everything and wp-rocket for cache. When I enable this plugin, page load time goes to 7.5 seconds. Is there anyway to speed things up?

    Hey Manny,

    We have some suggestions in this FAQ:

    Though we can take a look at your site to let you know why the page is taking a long time to load if you’d like. Just post a link!

    Thanks for the quick response. I tried that and got a little better page load (5.7s). But still when plugin not enabled we do get 2.5s and faster. The site is https://organicelv.com

    Thanks for the link!

    I noticed that the image resizing/localization doesn’t seem to be working for your feed. Since you have a business account connected the plugin is using a slower method to get images. There are a few things that might help:

    1) Switch to a “personal” account. Even if you have a “business” account, connecting as a “personal” account will allow you to use images from Instagram’s CDN which should load faster. Click the big blue button on the “Configure” tab to do so.

    2) Contact us on our support page to see if we can help you figure out the problem with the image resizing feature:

    This thread has been quiet for awhile so I’m going to mark it as resolved. Let me know if you need more help with this though!
