Slow/Laggy Front End Performance

We have a fairly large form here: https://aapsa.net/parentsq that for some reason is afflicted by considerable lag. There is a delay after clicking to select the radio buttons, and even more noticeably when typing quickly in text fields. Any ideas as to what would cause this?

Hi coughlin,

Do you have the latest update installed ? do you have any extra custom code events functions for the fields on the form ?

Best regards
Max

Yes, we are on the latest version; no, we do not have extra custom code events functions.

HI coughlin,

I noticed that the rows of radio buttons are actually check boxes with some javascript to unselect the remaining boxes. It's just conceivable that delays the checkbox updates but doesn't explain the big delay on processing text. I wonder if there are some other scripts running that are jamming things up ???

Hi Greyhead, Thanks for looking at it. The field elements are actually radio groups, just with the checkbox style chosen in the settings. We did not add any of the Javascript it is using, nor have we added any other custom scripts at this point.

Any other ideas on this? Below is a screenshot of what I was referring to by the checkbox style. If you look at the html element you can see the label type is still radio.

Hi coughlin,

Sorry, I've got no further ideas. I can only guess that there is a script of some kind running that is causing the delay.

We have tested it on the default Protostar template and it has the same issue, so we know it is not a script or anything else caused by the template. We don't know of any scripts that would be running apart from what is included by default in the form.
