What problems and Google Pagespeed Insights recommendations will be improved

Minimize main-thread work

Consider reducing the time spent parsing, compiling and executing JS. You may find delivering smaller JS payloads helps with this.

Eliminate render-blocking resources

Resources are blocking the first paint of your page. Consider delivering critical JS/CSS inline and deferring all non-critical JS/styles.

Reduce unused JavaScript

Reduce unused JavaScript and defer loading scripts until they are required to decrease bytes consumed by network activity.

Reduce unused CSS

Reduce unused rules from stylesheets and defer CSS not used for above-the-fold content to decrease bytes consumed by network activity.

Ensure text remains visible during webfont load

Leverage the font-display CSS feature to ensure text is user-visible while webfonts are loading.

Reduce the impact of third-party code

Third-party code can significantly impact load performance. Limit the number of redundant third-party providers and try to load third-party code after your page has primarily finished loading.

Serve static assets with an efficient cache policy

A long cache lifetime can speed up repeat visits to your page.

Reduce JavaScript execution time

Consider reducing the time spent parsing, compiling, and executing JS. You may find delivering smaller JS payloads helps with this.

Efficiently encode images

Optimized images load faster and consume less cellular data.

Serve images in next-gen formats

Image formats like WebP and AVIF often provide better compression than PNG or JPEG, which means faster downloads and less data consumption.

How to increase the speed of MODx on the front-end side (client acceleration)


In addition to compressing the acceleration images MODx on the front-end side, one can also achieve through the optimization of other components:

  • Caching of static files on the server side (images, css, js).
  • Combining css.
  • Compressing css.
  • Joining js.
  • Compression js.
  • Transferring css and js to the bottom of the html code page.
  • Disabling unnecessary scripts and widgets.

Accelerating the download MODx on the back-end (server acceleration)

Server-side acceleration is the goal of minimizing page generation time by the server. This is usually promoted by the following methods:

  • Changing the hosting or server to a more powerful one
  • Optimization of web server settings (apache, nginx, php-fpm).
  • Optimize the settings for mysql (or another sub-site that the site uses).
  • Caching database queries.
  • Caching queries against third-party APIs.
  • Caching of everything that is possible (Composite site technology and the like)
  • Refactoring and optimization of php-code logic.

The OptiPic experts know all the subtleties of acceleration and are ready to tackle the complex acceleration of your site. Contact us if you need the maximum acceleration of your site.
