Hi,

 

I am hosted at Wordpress.com, using Cloudflare and WP rocket.

As mentioned, I disabled wp rocket for my forums.

 

I have very good performance result on PageSpeed Insights for my WordPress / Woocomerce site, but for WPforo, the result are LOW.

Any advice on improving the performance?

 

For mobile, it isn't very good.

 

Website : WordPress.com+WProcket +Cloudflare

 

Desktop

Mobile

 

WPforo : WordPress.com+Cloudflare

 

Desktop

 

Mobile

 

Please advice.

 

Regards

I doubt this is an issue of wpForo. What theme do you use?

Also here: Link

what is reporting? What specific issues?

 

(for some reason my link is showing corrupted. i THINK the "webp" part is wrongly show as webp image. A BUG)

Well if we do not see the site, we can't help.

I understand that you do not want to post a url and that is ok.

Try to check the webpagetest.org details and suggestions to see what you can improve.

The difference between the to page mysite.com and mysite.com/community is that wp rocket is disabled as asked by wpforo team.

The impact is the cache is managed by the wpforo plugin...and it seems it's not doing it very well.

@ldj72 

But your comparison is not ok
you compare an almost empty page with the forum
on your mysite.com is only a picture and a few share icons nothing else, not even a menu

compare "mysite.com/blogs" with "mysite.com/community"

then you will see a completely different result

Hi,

wpForo has its own caching after version 2, caching similar to WP plugins that create a static page.

BUT for some reason the HOME PAGE of the Forum is not cached well (or not at all, i dunno). While ALL other pages are fully cached.

Try an inner page of your forum, a topic or a post, against webpagetest.org and tell me what you see.
