Firstly I wanted to say that that having only recently set up my website, I am on a steep learning curve here. But having tried a couple of other site building sites prior, I'm pretty impressed with the Wix one. There seems to be lot's of people knocking Wix online, and it does have a few frustrations for sure, but for me it's been really good overall.
My main issue that I'm experiencing right now is the slowdown of my pages loading times which seems to be being caused by the subscribers box/widget? I did message support, but got a bog standard set of links to go and read for myself and a 'if you have lots of subscribers the widget takes longer to load' kinda reply.
My site is brand new so I only have two subs so far anyway, but does that mean if I get 000,s of subscribers the issue will be much worse? :(
Btw, I have not posted my domain name here, because I assume these pages get indexed in Google's search results and I don't want it showing up.
I will summarise the issue below:
Subscribers Widget, and actually Facebook/Twitter ones slowing my page loading time terribly. I originally had a subs box in the header and the footer because it's really important to my site to get subscribers, but had to take out the one from the footer to speed up page loading times slightly.
To my simple way of thinking, on the face of it could it not just be a form (just like the Contact Us form which loads quickly) which would make the page in turn then load much faster?
Is there anyway to improve this please, it's a real headache affecting page speed?
