I did my infrequent website optimisation test and discovered a very disappointing result.
More server requests from js files caused by the new admin bar and localization data and other things??
The main reason for choosing WordPress is to have a lightweight base code on which I can choose to add whatever I need.
I don't require these additions, so why has it gone into the base code and not a plugin?
I've tried several plugins that remove the admin bar but the js files still remain.
The reason I left my last CMS provider was because the core base code was too high. I fear that I am already researching alternatives.
Please reconsider this addition to the base code - it is now making WordPress far too heavy.
