Why does WP Smush Pro kill my load times

Support is turned on. Toggle it on and see how much it slows down my site.

    Hey Robert,

    I definitely see that it's slowing your site down a lot. This isn't the case on my own sandbox so it's likely a conflict with something else on your site. I noticed a lot of js errors coming from your theme due to permissions issues. Could you try temporarily swapping to the default 2015 theme and see if the slowness still occurs?

    If it does, then try deactivating all other plugins except WP Smush Pro and see if it still happens. Once we find out what is conflicting here then we can look into a solution :slight_smile:

    If you don't mind sending in FTP then we can check this for you, but just need to be sure you are okay with us temporarily deactivating plugins/themes. We'll of course re-activate them after.

    You can send that privately through our contact form: https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/

    Select "I have a different question" for your topic - this and the subject line ensure that it gets assigned to me.

    Send in:

    -WordPress admin username
    -WordPress admin password
    -login url
    -FTP credentials (host/username/password)
    -link back to this thread for reference
    -any other relevant urls

    **If you keep support access active then no need to send in wp-admin

    Look forward to hearing back!

    All the best,
