slow loading menu

Permalink Browser Info Environment
I've got a slow load mega menu. It takes a half second or so after the content of the page to load for the menu to load.

do you have thoughts on what my slow down may be?

The 2 most common causes of a slow loading menu is:
1) Other Javascript elements/code on the page are slow to load or process. The Mega Menu is deliberately designed to be hidden until the "on_page_load" event fires in the browser so it knows the page is fully loaded and gracefully displays with a fade-in effect. The reason for this is to hide submenu items which can display in a "jolted" way, and also re-calculate any other HTML element positions that will affect the layout of the menu.

2) There are a lot of pages on your site. It takes C5 a while to cycle through the list. Usually this is fixed by enabling the C5 cache. Once the page list has been loaded, it will be faster on subsequent loads (even with different website visitors).

I hope this helps.
