JavaScript slows down the site although I have no such custom code there?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://voaki.com

I just started using my website, and the loading speed of it is not good - according to GTmetrix the site has a bad JavaScript slowing down problem. I don't understand why. I used to have a countdown counter on the site, but I even removed that and it didn't have any effect. Now I don't have any custom Javascript there (or not sure if Google Analytics, Facebook pixel or the CrazyEgg heat maps are in Javascript?

Could someone help me interpret this instruction on Javascript slowing down the site from GTmetrix: https://gtmetrix.com/defer-loading-of-javascript.html? Is there anything I could do or is it all some problem in the built in Squarespace code that cannot be fixed?

JavaScript is essential to the Squarespace 7.0 platform, and you cannot defer it. See my post here:
