Removing unused Javascript on Webflow

Hello! According to google pagespeed insights, it says I could shave off 6s of loading time by removing unused javascript, but I’m not sure how I can get to that

On the mobile site, I am getting a super long load time

If anyone could help, that would be highly appreciated!


Here is my site Read-Only: LINK

You could probably get rid of the JQuery load since Webflow includes that already. Other than that everything other than Webflow’s core JS and Included JQuery is optional and a choice.

I really don’t think Jquery is included on pages by default though? I fired up a completely blank project now and put in

$(document).ready(function() {
alert("I'm alive!");

And it gives a standard Jquery is not defined error.

@Fonsume - It is loaded at the bottom of the page via a CDN link. So all JQ dependent code needs to be in the before body close area. Inspect the source in dev tools or check the network panel.

Would you look at that! I despise going into the page settings to alter code so I always do it in a custom embed at the bottom of the page while making the site and then put it in a js file before deploying. Live and learn!

can I ask where I could check the code/ remove the JQuery load?
Thank you!!

I see it in the head of the document. So either you have it on the page or set in the project head area.
