Here are 8 easy steps on how to rebuild (convert) the website from WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer) to Elementor and load in 1 sec.

The website is built with Visual Composer and having too many trouble with it; it loads so slow till the client are giving hope of it.

Problem: Slow website & loads in 27sec

On a page, the client got to put a notice to warning visitors about the slow loading website. To try to get better performance, the client hosted on AWS, but the cost is so expensive. (595 request loads under 27sec is a pretty good performance)

Other problems that I found after the site audit

  • WordPress, theme & plugin are outdated for years.
  • Outdated PHP.
  • The website had been developed by numbers of times, they never remove whatever themes & plugins they no longer needed.
  • They installed lots of plugins to achieve some layout design.
  • Multiple repeated function plugins.
  • Use WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer) to create a post!
