Extremely Long Load Time on Website (5 posts)

    Hi All,

    A site I developed for a client has an extremely long load time and I'm not sure what is causing it. Here is the link. The site uses WP Supercache among a number of other plugins and is on a shared hosting GoDaddy acct.

    Thanks in advance for any clues as to how I can fix this for my client.

    Take a look at the site with GTMetrix:

    Site needs to be updated:


    Loads OK for me.

    Site has this score at GTmetrix

    It does have a slow load time (on slower connections). Work on the issues noted above. Make sure to deactivate the caching plugin and clear browser cache when working on site.

    Thanks very much!

    The GTMetrix says to combine multiple js and css files into one file for each. Since some of these styles and scripts are linked to their respective plugins, how do I redirect the paths to link to the new all-in-one css or js file?

    Also, how do I lengthen the browser cache expiration for many of these files? I'd estimate 97% of these files are core design elements which don't need to be updated.

    Again, many thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction!
