I have a really heavy webpage thanks to my dev using the Redmond jquery theme. There is a lot of stuff he can get rid of like css files he doesn’t use it appears. What do you think if I tell him that he should be making his own theme? Or just calling jquery as and when it is needed? Do you think that is something I should ask him to do or do you think I would be way out of line?
Thanks apologies for my ignorance!
The parts of it you would consider keeping are those that make it easier for visitors to your site to use the page.
Yeah but what is the fancy part of it?!! (ie the part that is not needed!!)
Thanks Stephen, I’m currently getting shafted by the hour! So anyway that aside the answer is yes, the best way to do what I want (what I want is the quickest loading version of the page that has as little http requests as possible) I should be asking him to develop his own theme to reach that goal? What would be your optimal best coding secenario?
It’s your site so if you are paying someone to develop it for you they should be developing it to your requirements.
The important thing is communication as early as possible to agree what changes you want done and how much they are going to charge you to make those changes.
