    Recently, couple of my viewer had complained about the load time of my site. I deleted some images in hopes that it will fix the issue. But i need to be sure that the site has a relatively fast load time. Can anyone point me to a good tool on the web that enables me to check a load time??

    also i’d appreciate it if anyone’d go to my site and let me know if it’s running allright. http://www.oyehoy.com

    thanks

  • I’m a bit of a novice here, but:

    First, try to fix the validation errors, that will help…
    http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oyehoy.com%2F

    Then I’d suggest you consider limiting the number of posts on the page…

    You do have a lot of images, consider optimizing them and even making the thumbnails smaller.

    It also looks as if you have not defined width/height in your images [img] tag(s). Effectively that means the page has to wait for every image to load before it knows how to position everything. If you define width/height you may end up with an empty box for a moment, but at least the rest of the page will still be ‘appearing’.

    Then I think you should consider using wp-cache (with the minor ‘flush’ mod to it), if you’re not already.

    There’s a start ;’)

    thanks for the feedback Yosemite.

    How do i define width/height in the images?

    There are two ways to define:

    1. Directly inside the img tag of your post i.e. <img src="file source" style="width:20px; height:20px">. This ways you will have to do with each post you make.

    2. Secondly, permanent way:- open your Stylesheet and add the following inside img tag

    width:20px;
    height:20px;

    Note: Replace values as per your requirement.
