Divi Nitro is a Divi theme specific speed optimisation framework.

Divi Nitro is designed to boost your page loading speed which helps improve SEO and most importantly the visitor’s user experience.

Defer Images

What are deferred images?

A deferred image is downloaded after the initial page load (after the scripts).

How does it make my Divi site faster?

Images are one of the major factors in slowing down the page load time. Lots of images equals slow loading site. You may be able to optimise your images but cannot get away from the fact that you have lots on your page. This is where Divi Nitro comes in. Divi Nitro uses deferring images to load the images AFTER the initial page load. It then loads the images after that from the top down.

The result?

Your site visitor sees the page load in a matter of seconds. As they are reading the images are loaded in the background without them knowing, so when they scroll down the images are loaded and looking great.

As you can see in the above example by deferring images it reduced the load time from 5.20 seconds down to 1.18 seconds.

Isn’t this lazy loading?

Well yes and no, lazy load is a more complicated way of deferring images. It observes, monitors and reacts to the scroll position – then it defers the images.

This way the image will ONLY load when the user scrolls to the position of the image. Lazy load can cause performance issues, is not a viable solution for one page websites and is not ideal for mobile performance.

See the power of Divi Nitro using the Divi modules that have images. This example has multiple high res images that would cause the page to load slow. They are using the Divi image module. Notice how quick the page loads even with loads of images.

Script Minification & Combination

Why minify and combine scripts?

Simple, minify means to make smaller. The smaller the css & js the quicker the page will load.

Why use Divi Nitro and not other plugins out there?

There is no doubt that you can get other plugins to minify your CSS and JavaScript. We have tried most of them and found that they broke one or more of the sites we developed. So we decided to create Nitro to work on all sites.

Take control of what scripts get minified with Divi Nitro. You can see what scripts have been enqueued and choose which files you want to minify and combine.

Are two files not combining correctly? Don’t worry, just put one in another queue to be compressed and avoid script errors on the front end.

Divi Nitro only minifies:
1) Enqueued scripts (proper way to add scripts in WordPress – Divi and other well-developed plugins would add the scripts this way)
2) Scripts on your server and not on another server such as google CDN (this is impossible as you have no control over these files).

  • help_outlineDo I get updates?
    You will receive all updates free of charge, as long as your license is active. You do not need to renew your license.
  • help_outlineWhat about customer support?
    We take pride in supporting our customers. If you need help of any kind, you can access support through your account – just submit a ticket and we will get back to you asap
  • help_outlineCan I get a refund?
    Due to the nature of digital products, it’s impossible to prevent fraud and still offer refunds. However we will take case by case and will come to a reasonable solution as we love and care for our customers.
  • help_outlineDoes it work with other caching plugins?
    Well yes and no. It works with other plugins however you don’t want to minify and combine CSS and JavaScript with another plugin and Nitro.
    Our recommended setup is:
    WP Fastest Cache (for page caching. Just don’t enable the minify settings), Cloudflare CDN and Divi Nitro. The less plugins you use the better.
  • help_outlineScript is minification breaking my site, what can I do?
    So, the beauty of Divi Nitro is that you have full control of how your scripts are minified. If you add all your scripts and it “breaks” your site this can be because of certain scripts conflicting. The best way to proceed is:
    1) Remove all scripts, clear cache and check front-end to make sure all is back to normal. (remember about CDN and any caching plugins you may use)
    2) Add one or two scripts at a time, save, clear cache and check front-end. Repeat until you find the script that is causing the site to break.
    3) Once you have found the script causing the issue, try adding this to a new queue by itself first. Does this solve the issue or is it still broken?
    4) If it is broken, leave it alone – it is better to have one not minified than having none because your site breaks. Or try the following:
    5) If it works, you can leave it as it is or try adding it in the queue in a different location such as the first script, or the last. Have some fun and try different orders to see if you can find a winning configuration.
  • help_outlineLicense Key not activating
    If you license key is not being activated, please try remove any security plugins or deactivate them for the meantime. There have been a few cases of sites not being able to talk to our servers. If this doesn’t work, please do the following to create an error log for us to investigate further.
    1) Set WP_DEBUG to true (https://docs.whmpress.com/faq/how-to-enable-or-disable-wp_debug-using-file-manager/ )
    2) Try activating the license key
    3) You can now set WP_DEBUG back to false
    4) Submit a support ticket on our site with the URL of your site so we can check the log file.
  • help_outlineFatal error: allowed memory size…
    You have probably created an infinite loop when working out the order of decencies.
    Example: Files 1, 2 and 3 are enqueued. File 1 is a dependency of 2, which is a dependency of 3. If only script 1 and 3 are minified and combined into 1 file, it will fail. This is because the processed file is now a dependency of file 2, but file 2 is also a dependency of it.Solution: You must either process all the files together, or process 1 and 3 in separately.

    At last a way to ACTUALLY speed up the user experience. Much of this plugin is just ‘fit and forget’ while other options need a little time, patience and reading of the documentation and watching the video (RTFM).

    My advice – don’t think about it if you use Divi. Buy it and be delighted.

    Seriously, unless you are already coding all of these optimisations into your builds, then every Divi site will see an improvement. I’d put money on it and win every time. Plus, it’s not even like you need to get into the nuts and bolts of it. Only today I had a website that was already rated by pingdom as a “Performance Grade A”, but was loading in 5.39s, drop down to 1.74s. This was just with the Module Differing and a few of the “Other Speed Settings” activated.

    A few switches switched, that will be a staple on every one of my builds from now.

    Absolutely worth it. Easy to use and it works. Reduced http requests, improved scores. Peter was extremely responsive to both pre and after sales enquiries.

    The results were immediate and impressive. My GtMetrix scores jumped to A scores for page load and Yslow. I’m now in 97% and 95% score range. I like the fact that you can tune your minification far better and without breaking your site vs W3 Total Cache settings. I’ve completely turned off Minify settings for W3T.

    Author/Designer is extremely easy to communicate with and get help if you need it. I especially like the fact that they are constantly improving the interface and enhancing performance. Well Done!

    Divi Nitro is awesome; perfectly built for speeding up Divi. Peter himself is the epitome of friendliness, repeatedly willing to bend over backwards to help people. I’m glad I grabbed the developer version, because this plugin is going on every Divi site I build. I tested it out on my personal site, and with W3TC, was blown away to get my pageload time from 10+ seconds down to 2.5 Full marks to Peter and Divi Nitro! Can’t wait for future developments.

    In a world of smaller and smaller attention spans, speed is becoming more and more important in the web development game. Whether you are creating a complex ecommerce store or a smaller one page website, speed goes a long way to keeping your customers engaged and this is a phenomenal speed plugin!

    Unlike other plugins that combine and minify the scripts on your website, this is designed specifically for divi and works straight out of the box with no issues. I’m not a huge fan of lazy loading, you can see the images loading as you scroll down and there can be performance issues at times, but with deferred loading, the main parts of the website are blazing fast and the images load in the background from the top down. I saw an immediate huge speed boost!

    Can’t wait to see where Peter takes this plugin, he is really committed to making it the one stop divi speed plugin! Awesome work!

    If you want to speed up your Divi theme and don’t know how to do it, just get the plugin and you are done. It’s steal for that price and it gets a job done. Defers images,combines scripts (both javascript and css) and that’s all you need for quick load time. Recommended…

    I’ve installed the plugin for all my client’s and noticed improvements on all the websites. Peter has provided excellent customer service. I had a plugin that was causing issues, and Peter was quick to diagnose the issue and make recommendations that made the site even faster. This developer cares, and I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to improve their Divi themed websites. Thanks, Peter!

    I have installed and tested this plugin on a few websites and have seen an improvement in load time on my sites. I have had no issues with the plugin and have not needed support.

    I had reached out to Peter with a pre-sales question and he was incredibly responsive and seems remarkably & wholeheartedly interested in developing this plugin so that it becomes better with each release. This plugin is now a must-install on all of my Divi sites!

    I really look forward to seeing the future of this plugin and look forward to seeing what Peter releases next.

    As soon as this plugin was released I bought it. First site I tried it on, it made and instant and remarkable improvement to the speed and I was hooked. I had reason to contact the developer for one particular application and Peter responded quickly with an update to solve the problem. Performance gains and great support!
