Does hiding sections improve load speed?


Hi there,

I was wondering, if hiding a section would help load a page faster ? I have quite some big images and “a lot” of content on a section the user doesn’t need to see at first. Or does the page or the way webflow works, even loads the hidden content on the background ?

Thank you !


I found this article but it seems the performance from such trick is negligeable for load performance.
Does anyone else agree / confirm ? :slight_smile:


Hidden elements do not help to load faster your page because the code is still there and the page needs to load it anyway although it has a hidden attribute or not.

So simple answer to your question is no it doesn’t help. I would suggest creating different pages to separate content and divide loading speed time between those and maybe using something like this to simulate being on the same page.
