Hi bi888,

Thanks for using RedWaves lite :D Glad to hear you like it.

Where did you get this error? Can you upload a screenshot?

Maybe the font is blocked by your server. Also, give me your website URL if possible.

Hello,
I use Xenu to check broken links.
I have several sites that use your theme. I like your theme very much.
For example aliexpressblog com

The only URL RedWaves has that points to Google fonts API website is the following:
https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:400italic,300,700,400
Which is working fine.

I have visited your website and even checked your "2018 FIFA World Cup Aliexpress Sports Souvenirs" post and there were no 404 errors at all. So probably you have fixed the issue, did you?

I checked the site, but there are still errors.

I have checked your website (homepage only) again and I didn't find any 404 errors.
I have used multiple tools to analyze your website performance and, unfortunately, it's poorly optimized. It's taking ages to load (about 30 sec) and it has ~200 HTTP request. The page size is more than 4MB.

Check these stats:
https://gtmetrix.com/reports/aliexpress ... m/ZHWP0KnZ
https://tools.pingdom.com/#59a624b0f8400000
https://developers.google.com/speed/pag ... log.com%2F

But they don't report any 404 errors.

I thought your robots.txt file is blocking some pages but it doesn't.

Maybe the tool you are using is checking all the links available in your page HTML code. Those links could be your posts or pages links. But your frontpage/homepage is fine.

Here is what I think: You are using tons of plugins or you have installed poorly optimized ones. Delete all your plugins and only leave those that you really need.

Also, try to stick to one advertizing network like Google Adsense and remove the other because ads can massively reduce your site performance.

RedWaves lite is very lightweight and optimized theme. Even on a small VPS, it loads within 2 sec and makes just 23 HTTP request (including the default WP requests) https://tools.pingdom.com/#59a6298e54800000 (demo site https://redwaves-lite.themient.com/)

So the demo site is literally 10 times lighter than your website. Work on optimizating your website speed and the most of the 404 errors should be fixed automatically.
