How to speed up loading of Fera on Shopify

July 26, 2018: This article may be outdated. Please contact our support team if you need help with load speed.

If you’re running Shopify you may notice that there is a slight delay before Fera’s content blocks show up in your store. It’s showing up a bit slower than I’d like because Shopify is waiting for the loading of some other apps. These apps are taking a while to load first and are then delaying Fera. You can let Fera skip the line and load faster by following these steps:

Steps

  1. Step 1: Edit your theme from the Shopify admin like this:
  2. Step 2: Look for the “theme.liquid” file like this:
  3. Final Step: Finally, add the following code to the bottom before the ending </body> tag and save like this:

    Code to add: <script src="https://cdn.bananastand.io/js/bananastand.js" type="text/javascript" async="async"></script>

Disclaimer:

The only drawback of doing this is that you have to remove that line of code if you ever decide to uninstall Fera. That’s why we don’t automatically integrate this code in the first place. Either way, we have an easy to read and understand guide that will explain to you how to clean up any unavoidable code after uninstalling.

Voila you’re good to go and you’ll notice that upon loading the Fera shows up first!
