    I looked at that but Cloudflare couldn't detect Wordpress even though the site is on Wordpress, so I perhaps mistakenly figured as it's Woocommerce it wasn't compatible.

    You don’t need cloudflare. In fact using a CDN can make things worse. What you need is to clear out all the junk, find a better theme and optimise everything. There are loads of quick wins you can make to speed up the site.

    I use Fastly having had some issues with Cloudflare. I do think they help as well as giving DDoS protection.

    I beleive this is a common error and I have expereinced something similar on a couple of sites. I can't remember what the fix was but it was something simple like disabling and re-enabling the plugin?

    The last comment on this thread rings a bell...

    There's a plugin that does just that no need to mess about with creating a multitude of categories etc.

    So it's taken me a while, as the wife's website changes have to be squeezed into my spare time (like a hobby I'd don't choose), but I've made some mods to the navigation (burger) and also to the front page based on the feedback here. Took bloody ages re-categorising the products!

    Can I have some updated thoughts please?

    (no I haven't addressed all the speed issues yet as that goes above my pay grade, but I did remove the slider)

    It’s borked on a phone. Can’t close the cookie thing (which you don’t even need)

    Ideally have two columns on the homepage with the category image and title. All those words and ‘shop now’ aren’t necessary.

    You have a nice site going on there for your wife, and yes it's pretty niche.
