Step 1: Identifying and Addressing Speed Issues
Step 2: Seeking Help for Third-Party App-Related Speed Issues
If you suspect that third-party apps are causing speed issues on your Shopify store, it’s a good practice to reach out to the respective app’s support team first. They can provide guidance on optimizing their app’s performance or help resolve any conflicts that may be affecting your site’s speed.
Step 3: Accessing Your Theme’s Code
- From your Shopify admin dashboard, click on “Online Store,” then select “Themes.”
- In the “Themes” section, click “Edit Code” for the theme you want to optimize.
- Paste the copied code into the minifier.
Step 8: Save and Test Your Changes
After making these adjustments, remember to save your theme files. Then, refresh your website to ensure that everything is functioning correctly. Test various pages and functionalities to verify that the changes haven’t caused any issues.
Step 9: Creating a Backup
Always create a backup of your theme before making any code changes. This precaution ensures that you can quickly restore your website to its previous state in case any unexpected issues arise.
