WordPress is a great CMS but it can run slowly if your site is not set up and optimized correctly. Figuring out why it’s slow can be challenging but there are some things you can do that will quickly boost performance and speed up your site.
If you’re running a WooCommerce store and your WordPress theme incorporates a modern framework like Bootstrap 5, a lightweight option is to recycle the code to make your own custom product slider.
This was a strange issue I came across recently after installing a newly developed WooCommerce theme on a test server.
Some head scratching and Googling later, I found out it’s a known problem stretching back 2 years that randomly occurs on some sites.
