    Hi there,

    Totally love you plugin.

    It helped me a bit, but the website still not loading fast.

    Can you help me out a lil bit, my Yslow score is still the same.
    everything turned on, excepts the first 3 in browse caching.

    CDN is also on, self hosted with FTP.

    and these are the results:

    You're pulling in a huge number of resources from other sites. If they aren't configured the way YSlow wants them to be, adjusting the resources on your site isn't going to have a great deal of impact. YSlow (and pagespeed) take not of all resources loaded to serve your page, not just those that you host.

    However, having the expires header on may help. You may need to adjust the expiry time.

    you may be able to add some of the extra js and css files into the list managed on W3TC's minify tab. If you could, that would reduce the number of http accesses needed, and get them under your control for compression and caching as well.

    But what is that with Gzip, not everything is gziped? i still get an "F" at Yslow that i need to Gzip things.

    You should self host all images. Imageshack is a very slow image server for one. What CDN are you with? Feels a bit slow on my end at least.

    Can someone test my site?
    Is it loading fast, or too slow?

    Thanks!

    Please understand that Yslow scores do not mean that you site is fast or slow. You can have lots of cases where all of the policies that Yslow tests are ok, but your site is still "slow."

    You need to make sure that you minify HTML, CSS + JavaScript and also use disk enhanced mode for page caching. And turn off debug mode if you're not troubleshooting.

    Also, the GTMetric site shows the Page Speed loading tab which gives a better sense of what can be improved to reduce loading times.

    disk enhanced mode <== is not working cause it's asking for fancy permalinks, the basic is only working without fancy links.

    HTML minify <== already enabled.

    I tried to minify the most javascripts, but alot plugins didn't work anymore, so i only minified the JS that didn't caused any problems.

    So what else can i do?
    What's object caching & database caching? they are disabled.

    What i'm gonna do now:

    * gonna turn off the debug mode
    * gonna minify some CSS.

    Not all JS or CSS can be minified, unfortunately you have to experiment.

    Yup i did. :)

    What about the "disk enhanced mode" <== is not working cause it's asking for fancy permalinks, the basic is only working without fancy links.

    Will it ever changed? so people without fancy permalinks can use the enchanced disk mode too.

    Thanks too you :)

    But i have a few questions:

    1. What about the "disk enhanced mode" <== is not working cause it's asking for fancy permalinks, the basic is only working without fancy links.

    2. What does the Header expire?

    3. What is Object & database caching? if they are enabled, will that speed up the loading of the site?

    Thanks for your help & input.
    Really love your plugin, helps my site alot!

    1. What about the "disk enhanced mode" <== is not working cause it's asking for fancy permalinks, the basic is only working without fancy links.

    Fancy permalinks allow for URL without ? in them, like http://domain.com/post/ instead of http://domain.com/?p=23

    2. What does the Header expire?

    Tells your browser how long to cache the file.

    3. What is Object & database caching? if they are enabled, will that speed up the loading of the site?

    In theory yes, hosting environments vary so you will have to test. What they do is reduce the time to create new pages when things change on your site.

    Ok thanks for your answer.

    My links are like these http://domain.com/?p=23 <== that's whhy i can't use the enhanced disk mode?

    i have one little thing.. when i created a new post, or edited a post... it's not automatically refreshing the cache, people who visits my site, don't see the new post or the edited post.

    If i empty all the caches then they seeing the new post or edited post.

    Can i change that? that it will automatically refresh after a new post or edited post?

    Thanks again.

    Do you have any non-default browser cache settings enabled?
