Optimising Suffusion using W3 Total Cache (3 posts)

    My wordpress site runs on the Suffusion them and I am using W3 Total Cache to reduce the load on the hosting servers. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to optimise it? I want to be able to serve static pages to most users, without any php calls.

    Suffusion seems to be very resource heavy. See http://tools.pingdom.com/?url=http://www.liverpoollatest.co.uk/&treeview=0&column=objectID&order=1&type=0&save=true

    What are the best ways to reduce the load using W3 Total Cache?

    Nice job on the site. And the site is actually pretty responsive, for a WordPress site. I found that going to excerpt only, on the main page, sped things up considerably, although considerably is still slower than an html site. Regardless of caching and optimizing, you are serving up a lot of blog on the main page, and with it goes the pictures. I have several sites, and some are cached, tweaked, bereft of plugins and devoid of pictures,and not much faster. Short of going to a dedicated server or perhaps a virtual dedicated server with 2g of ram, I think your site is as fast as it's going to get. Maybe Sayontan has some pearls of wisdom to throw in here so we can both learn.

    I recommend using the google page speed widget available on the WP Admin dashboard if you haven't disabled it. Also, webpagetest.org is a great tool that will give you some additional direction.
