Help to analysis, what's blocking content from loading. - alexscott28 - 12-25-2011 11:17 PM

Hello!
First of all merry Christmas everyone!

I have some problems with content being blocked during loading - please see the screen shot: http://imageshack.us/f/651/screencapture6l.jpg/

Is it the large HTML that's being loaded the causes the "block" between 0.9 to 1.8 sec., or do you have any other suggestions?

Br.,
Alex.

My guess is that that is a break between the <head> and the <body> and it's all of the stuff in the head that is causing the break. That's a pretty huge time to load a few of those css and javascript files, are they really large and uncompressed?

It's also possible that there is something on the back-end that is delaying the page after the head (maybe it gets flushed once at the end of the head and then does a lot of expensive work before flushing the rest of the page).
