[Hummingbird Pro] Speeding up websites

Our site, http://cubemaster.co.uk, is one we are using as a master for all future to help speed up development. I'm trying to get the best performance so we start with a great framework to start with. The site is pretty fast now, but one thing that keeps slowing it down are the scripts. Is it possible for Hummingbird to move the scripts to the footer or to combine them? Would appreciate some help on this, thanks! Steve

    Hello Steve,
    how are you doing today?

    Yes, Hummingbird Pro can help you to combine, minify or move the scripts to the footer.

    Please visit Wp-Admin Dashboard > Hummingbird Pro > Asset Optimization > Switch to advance mode for more control > Got it.

    It will then reload the page and more options will be displayed next to the CSS and JS.
    These options will help you to combine, move to the footer, Inline CSS, etc.
    You can find a detailed guide regarding Asset Optimization in this below link:

    However, it is important to remember that it's not always possible to eliminate all the files which are slowing down the site as it might break your site, the ultimate goal is to lower the number of files.
    Sometimes shifting or combining few important files/scripts might break the site. So it is advisable to first perform it in a staging environment or take a backup before making any changes.
    Please remember to click on Recheck Files whenever you do any major changes in the site or install any plugins.

    Hope this helps.

    Feel free to reply here if you've any more questions or concerns.

    Kind Regards,
