A good way to measure if a script is causing issues is using e107 debuggerTime Analysis option.
Also some plugins are not directly related to the zone where they are active, the 1st example that comes to my mind is the twitter add-on from xpress theme PLUGIN and vbulletin (somehow the script is also present in forum page even though it is also active on index.php. I love his themes but I can't remember having to clean so much hardcoded on any other payed theme).
I appreciate your input and will give this a shot.
We bought a theme because I didn't want to spend the time writing one from scratch. We found what had most of what we wanted built in and then set to hacking it to pieces making it look and work the way we wanted.
Considering we're loading the social interface on every page, it's in a floating header, you may have just brought up a good point.
Sooooo... I just commented out the social icons in theme.php that's loaded on every single page since it's in the header. Hmmm... so far so good. Of course I'll have to monitor this over a period of several days.
I do notice that when a news item is loaded and it loads the social icons in the footer, there is a delay.
Those social wrappers/whatever are usually laced with unneeded crap. If you're not including them in your news posts (I'm going to be completely honest here, but IMO it's very arrogant to include like/+1 stuff in news posts. It's plenty to have people like your site, but every news post? Really?) you should consider just linking to your respective accounts with an icon.
If you want to have share options for your news posts, you should look into writing the code yourself in the theme.php instead of relying on their provided code snippet or some plugin to do it for you.
Finally, the link in your profile (to your site, with Incapsula enabled) still has the issue you mentioned. Perhaps it's a caching issue on my part, but the social bits are gone from what I can see.
Septor, I get your point but the purpose of having them on the newsposts are basically for sharing them. The goal is eventually to have someone writing our own news instead of repeating news we find elsewhere.
At some point I can worry about writing our own code for those things but currently I am trying to work out so many other issues.
What browser are you using? Because I still haven't seen it come back since removing those social links.
