    Hi there,

    I'm just wondering if this plugin will do a profile of my wordpress theme and tell me where it slowing down?

    Thankyou :)

    Yes and no.

    P3 will break down performance by each plugin, the theme, and the core.

    This is helpful for plugins because you can turn them on/off on a case-by-case basis. But since you only have one theme, the only optimization you can make is to switch themes.

    If you want to compare your theme load times (in PHP), I recommend getting a baseline with twenty twelve, then measure your target theme.

    If you want to compare your theme load times (browser), I recommend looking at your site with webpagetest.org. it will give you a full breakdown of how your site looks in a browser and a full list of performance recommendations.
