Looking into the page load times and why they are so slow!
Assess the whole blog and speed up page load times to improve user experience
Below is a list of things that may need addressing....
Social neytwork plugins and all plugins need to be accessed
benchmarking the theme.
This involves adding some code to it hidden in comments to see how many database queries are being run on page load and how much time WordPress says it takes to load it.
Database connections can be a big problem also, especially with widgets and dynamic menus that are generated by WordPress.
When it comes to optimizing.
Creating sprites, compiling scripts and changing the way plug-ins you are using function
Page load times are currently anything between 7 -20 seconds which is unacceptable. I need these to be down to about 3 - 4 seconds.
Installing WORDPRESS CACHE or any other similar wordpress simply won't do.
This project is only for people with experience. Simply speeding the blog up by a 2 or 3 seconds won`t do it needs to be a big improvement
Many thanks Jon
