    Ok.. I’ve spent hours trying to figure this one out and I’m stumped. I’m building this site in WordPress:

    In Chrome, on several different computers, the site is jerky when I scroll. In IE and Firefox, it works fine without any jerking.

    Does anyone have any insight on this one?


    First, quick note: your site took a long time to load due to loading two MASSIVE images. One is 3.5mb and the other is 2mb. The images were being resized down to 200px wide, but I still have to download the entire image – super important to fix that.

    I’m also receiving the following three errors:

    Actually, after some testing it appears that simply removing those massive images from the page totally improved the performance!


    My client is constantly uploading large size images to her site, no matter how many times I tell her to resize the images before uploading, she doesn’t do it. Is there a way to handle that after upload to reduce the file size??

    I think I have those errors fixed that you pointed out as well.

    Thank-you again for your help!


    Hmmm… I started with the Foundation theme and the app.js that is throwing that error was part of that theme. I’ll have to try to figure out what’s causing that.

    I’m thinking of maybe trying this for image resizing…

    She is just dead-set against having to go through anything to resize her photos. She wants to go straight from digital camera to website.


    WordPress offers tons of resizing features – when she inserts the post into the page she should have to select a size, no?

    If you’re inserting the posts from the backend, then you should be able to resize them yourself by picking a different version of it (medium, large, featured, thumbnail, etc.).

    Every time you upload a photo via WordPress it creates multiple copies of it at different sizes.


    That was what I thought, but she’s apparently not worrying about the size she inserts since I have the css taking care of making sure it fits into the layout without blowing anything up.

    I’ve played with that plugin a bit, and it seems to work. It’s resizing them at 600px wide instead of 4,000px wide that she uploads originally.

    I think in most situations, this isn’t really an issue since WordPress handles it, but between the photographer and her love for big, bold images in the articles, it makes it a bit more difficult.

    On another note, I still can’t figure out that jQuery error…


    That error is occurring because you’re including app.js before jQuery is being loaded. You just need to reorder your scripts.

    You should also be careful, you’re loading two version of jQuery, as also seen in my screenshot.
