    Hello,

    If you go to this site and click on another page, you'll see it go white for a second and you'll see some links on the far left.

    Can anyone please tell me why it's doing this and suggestions on how to remedy it?

    Thank you!

    It's related to the huge number of javascript and css files you are including. There is rarely a need for that many files, each causes an http request that slows down the rendering of the site. What you are seeing is a version of your site without the styles applied.

    You might want to look at:
    - reducing the amount of js and css used
    - merging and minifying what you need
    - only including what a specific page needs
    - ensuring it all gets cached
    - loading the js at the bottom of the page instead of the top.

    I agree with pkwooster, when I looked at the source code your site I thought the same thing. His advice for what to do is pretty good too, most of what he suggests is possible with wordpress.
