Featured Posts Problems

    I have a Featured Posts header that allows scrolling through 6 pre chosen posts. I love this feature when it works but it is the last part of my site to download so people don’t often see it as they are halfway into reading my first post by the time it loads. Is there a way to prioritize which parts of my site upload first? Also there are some times when is never even loads. What causes this?

    The blog I need help with is huntfiber.wordpress.com.

    Are you optimizing the photos so they’ll load at maximum speed? Unnecessarily large images can really slow your load time. You can test your loading time at http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/ and it will show you the loading time of everything on the page, so you can consider removing or changing the troublesome items. Ideal load time for a page is 4 seconds or less.

    There’s no way to change the order in which items on your site loads. We don’t have FTP access, so we can’t edit the files containing those instructions.

    Wow thank you both so much! I did not know any of that but that will really help.
