Gravity Forms & speed

WordPress Mobile Speed


There are no affiliate links on PagePipe.

The worst plugin offender is Gravity Forms (and it’s 5 plugins). Those consume up to 2.4 seconds of speed overhead. See attached numbers. We recommend eliminating this plugin with substitution or selective activation. Is Gravity Forms needed on all pages? If not, which URLs need this plugin? We’d like to develop a speed strategy to isolate this speed problem or offload it to a single page. What is the business goal with this plugin?
