I have inherited a quite bloated wordpress website that runs really slow even on dedicated hosting. I am trying to optimize the speed of it. I have run the website through different websites that suggest what to optimize. One thing they all mention is to decrease the number of scripts used.
Through Chrome developer tools, if I look at load-scripts.php I see the function called twice. These are the load parameters:
My question is this:
- Is this a normal amount of scripts to be executed in a wordpress website, or is this too much?
- What would be the best strategy to disable the scripts? Will it be disabling the plugins and seeing if the website still functions?
