You may be interested in installing the Page Speed Booster app from the The Thinkific App Store! Page Speed Booster helps optimize load time speeds for visitors on your Thinkific site. It pre-loads page data from linked pages on your Thinkific site into a browser cache during idle time so that when a user clicks a link that page loads more quickly. This speed increase can be important for page conversion rates and improve SEO with Google. More info can be found on the Page Speed Booster install page in The Thinkific App Store.
