My boss is very concerned about the loading speed of yoglimogli.com. I need your help to make it load faster. I understand that flash takes a bit longer to load, but I truly don't feel like it should take this long.
I called godaddy, which is hosting the site, and he took a look at the results on hosttracker.com. Apparently, on 34 servers, the longest loading time was 0.6seconds in Moscow...whatever that means. This cannot be true, however, because my boss says that it takes a full minute to load on his computer, and while it is not that bad on mine, it seems to be getting progressively worse.
I attempted making a loading percentage show up, but clearly that isn't working either, as it jumps back and forth from 1-10, but never any higher than 10%
My research shows that I imported images into flash incorrectly. For example, I imported it as is, and then just brought the size down to fit my needs. This process was used on the locations page. Now that I have re-sized the images correctly, it actually brought the websites file size from 4.8MB to 1.2MB. Is this file still incredibly large? Should it be taking this long to load? Is my code in need of optimizing? PLEASE HELP!
In the meantime, I will be creating a more attractive loading bar, but
Also, when you look at the site, please let me know if the navigation is usable. Apparently, the buttons are not working on several PC's as well.
Thank you in advance,
Please let me know if you need the original files.
