  • Resolved Irina Sopas


    Hello, I have a very serious problem on my site: slowness. It started for a few months and only got worse. 18 plugins have already been removed, images changed for svg and the problem continues.

    Is there any way to tell the specific origin of the slowness? I’m really getting desperate.

    Best regards,

    Irina Sopas

  • I basically provided the info about cloudflare earlier in this thread. The plugin makes it fairly simple to implement the correct settings.

    As for the footer widgets, I’ll see what I can do. Unfortunately the next few days are quite busy for me though and I’m not familiar with the theme you’re using and again we don’t provide support for third-party themes here. What I will say is I wouldn’t implement the feeds using php as you did in the example you showed just now. Instead I’d implement them using the embed scripts from each social network under the widget area i mentioned to you in my earlier post.

    Hallo!!! Well cloudflare just asked me the email, api key and did the rest. I gave next / next and more nexts until it finished. At the end they gave me the nameservers. I checked and they are correct so I think cloudflare is okay.

    No don’t worry about my boxes. I will use the embeb scripts code in my footer widgets if you say is the best. After that I’ll figure out a way to put a border so they look alike and the end.

    When you have time just help me with that space between my sidebar widgets they have a huge space between them.

    I tried padding but it did nothing, I need negative pixels in that padding hahaha.

    .widget {
    padding-bottom: I USED PX, ALSO TRIED %;


    I would not use the .widget class in css.
    that will use the settings for all widgets. I will take a closer look and make a suggestion in a few hours when I am out of my meetings for the day.

    Also, did you click the button in the cloudflare plugin to configure cloudflare for WP? having the nameserver set is great but you still need to click that button.

    Yeahhh! I’ll wait your help. It doesn’t need to be today or tomorrow. Just take your time »»» Rome wasn’t built in a day (I thank that’s the expression).

    Nice work for you. Kisses and good meetings.

    Thank you for your patience, and yes “Rome wasn’t built in a day” is an expression that many use in this industry as well as others! I will get back to you as soon as I can with more info and hey someone else may also find time to reply too. So stay tuned. I will be tracking the conversation and help as my time permits.

    Have a blessed week until we exchange messages again.

    Just FYI, padding can’t have negative pixels but margin can. 🙂

    Hallo @binarywc wish you also a blessed week with a lot of good things.

    @sinip how are you? LOLOL didn’t know that. I’l try margin. I’m not a developer but I’m learning on my own and with your help. Websites and codes are like one of my passions. I’ve a degree in lawyer school and I’m a professional writer and editor.


    Eh, if it is of any comfort, I’m not developer either. At least not yet. 🙂

    Hallo guys! Following your tips I reduced the homepage images slider. I think the site is less slower.

    Now I have a doubt: there is anyway to change a specific widget font so they look like text-widget? And hide the title?



    Found it id=”recent-posts-2 class=”widget widget_recent_entries So how I use something like

    #secondary .widget a {
    font-family: Avenir, Nunito, Arial, sans-serif !important;
    font-size: 16px;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: 100;

    in that specific widget?


    I would not use that code either as any link element under the id secondary (#secondary) instead I would add custom inline CSS to each of the links in the widgets area. I only suggest this because I have worked on many sites before where clients wanted some links to be one font size but while others were another. So I always change link styling using inline CSS rather than adding custom CSS at the widget level. Up to you though, it is your site after all. 🙂

    Happy you were able to resolve all of the other issues you were having as well! Feel free to post here in the forums for help whenever you need it, that’s what we are here for!

    Hallo! I use a custom class, but I will follow your inline advice and change it even if I want the same css for all widgets.

    I’m trying to put an icon before my footer widgets-titles, but even when I use the id, it does not change. Is oly changing for the class alone, and there are 3 different icons: facebook, twitter and instagram. What I’m doing wrong?

    .widgettitle #custom_html-3 {content:url(;}


    Ah, yes. Custom classes for the widget titles or inline are both correct ways. Also worth noting, you can change what the widget looks like based on the page you are on too. For example, if you add a background color to one page of your site but not others you may also want to change the widget styling (if it is used on that page) to make sure it remains readable on that page. I’ve had clients request this before while working on redesigns of their site.
