Use the browser's console and you can detect potential issues such as an image not loading.  In this case zoomico.png an issue with Modernizer.  I tried twice in two different tabs and the page did load though.

I also found this error in Inspect Element Console:
downloadable font: download failed (font-family: "FontAwesome" style:normal weight:normal stretch:normal src index:1): status=2147746065 source: font-awesome.css:7:12

as per CSS is checked, the above error is caused by the fist style in "font-awesome.css"

if you have purchased this theme, their support will help you.  also search/check in their forum (if any) for post with similar problem

Prasadh Baapaat repeated exact same error I mentioned probably by mistake.

The idea is to check the browser console.  I think you have 12 images each 600K to over 900K. That means you are trying to send 9  megs to the browser and one reason why it takes so long for the site to load at first.  Once those images are cached, the page loads faster.

Looking at pic_14.jpg which is over 900K.  You can use photoshop or (free) to save for web (photoshop) or in pixlr just save   and change the quality. Play with what still looks good but the lowest possible.  The first image below is using photoshop Save For Web with the preset "Min" which is 10 quality and the 2nd is using and setting 20 quality and also about 180k.  If you have 12 images at 180K you are at about 2 megs total and that is a big difference.  I would lower that even more though by using less images.  Perhaps only 4 or 5 and create a gallery with all images.  You can randomize each page load which 4 images load each time. Using just 4 images will bring you down to 720K.  The 3rd image is 800 tall and cropped the top and bottom evenly. This brings the file down to 130k which makes 4 images totaling about a half meg. That is  huge difference from the 9 megs we started with.

Try experimenting with loading just 4 images that are optimized like I have done, clear your cache, close the browser (get out of Chrome), start chrome back up and load your page and see if this helps.

Using Photoshop and "Min" or quality of 10 180kUinsg Pixlr and saving quality 20 to 180kPixlr 20 quality cropped to 800 tall
Scott Fell, EE MVEDeveloper & EE ModeratorCommented:
The images here do not show up at 100% so look at and you can see the photo shop image looks a lot better than the pixlr image.  They are both at about 180K. Photoshop looks better because it uses a different algorithm to make the image smaller and part of that is removing the exif data.  You will have to play with the minimum expectable quality for yourself.

yes I was just seconding what you said... will not continue posting since you have explained in detail :)

Thank you Dear Scott Fell,
My actual URL is
The URL I given earlier was for testing purpose.
I uploaded zoomico.png and fontawesome-webfont.woff2 still the issue is there.
Can you please guide me? I tried Google Browser Console, but could not solve.
Thanks and regards.

And I have optimized the pics. But my issue is for other page > POEM page.
Scott Fell, EE MVEDeveloper & EE ModeratorCommented:
It is loading from my end. I tried pinging from locations around the world and except for Australia, pings were in the 200 to 300ms range which is high.  That could be in issue if you are out of that country.  I did see where some pings failed and that could be where you are seeing issues.

Try getting rid of that preloader
<div class="loader">
		<img src="images/loader.gif" alt="" width="50">

Open in new window

and in main.js the 2 lines that hit the .loader class
function pageHeight() {
    "use strict";
    // Loading Page Effect
    var windowHeight = $(window).height();
    jQuery('.loader').css('height', windowHeight);
    jQuery('.navigation.sidepanel_nav').css('height', windowHeight);
    jQuery('.countdown').css('min-height', windowHeight);

I diagnosed the issue.
If I remove the fonts css line  <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/font-awesome.css">  it works perfect.
Can you guide what should I do ?
Rajesh JoshiAuthor Commented:
I am sorry, not every time it works.
Scott Fell, EE MVEDeveloper & EE ModeratorCommented:
Look at the fontawsome css view-source:

From the code, the fonts need to be in a font folder at the same level as the css folder.  surfed to your fonts and I could get to the file.
 *  Font Awesome 4.3.0 by @davegandy - - @fontawesome
 *  License - (Font: SIL OFL 1.1, CSS: MIT License)
 * -------------------------- */
@font-face {
  font-family: 'FontAwesome';
  src: url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.eot?v=4.3.0');
  src: url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.eot?#iefix&v=4.3.0') format('embedded-opentype'), url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff2?v=4.3.0') format('woff2'), url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff?v=4.3.0') format('woff'), url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.ttf?v=4.3.0') format('truetype'), url('../fonts/fontawesome-webfont.svg?v=4.3.0#fontawesomeregular') format('svg');

When I place at-least one social icon in the footer it works fine.
<div class="social-network">
 <li><a href="#" target="_blank"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a></li>

Oh..really, I am confused. No steady result :(
Scott Fell, EE MVEDeveloper & EE ModeratorCommented:
I can't recreate the issue.  

A couple of things to try.  First, clear your browser cache and history if you have not done so already and try again.  

Next try pinging your site 100 times in a row and see if you get any packet loss or high response times.
