Replace sliders with a static evergreen image.

Sliders are slow and heavy. If it can’t be eliminated, then the next best thing is selectively activating it only on the pages where it is used.

We’ve seen sites with three sliders being used simultaneously: Nextgen Gallery, FooGallery and Ultimate Responsive Image slider. We doubt you ever need three.



You have two slider plugins installed. LayerSlider and slider Revolution. Sliders slow down your site.
