My Site - SLOW (4 posts)

    It takes at least 8 seconds for each page to load on my site, http://www.BoyshaArt.com . I don't know if this was the case prior to upgrading to 2.1.2 or not. Can you guys navigate to the site and let me know how fast each page loads? I am hoping it is a temporary ISP or hosting issue and not the WP installation or upgrade. Any thoughts?

    If you have a dozen of plugins that do a query, it slows down everything. However, I see that you are using many javascript files, for a total of 263KB of scripts and 255KB of images, the total of the first page is 600KB !!!
    In addition, your plugins lightbox2 and wp-shopping-cart are using the same javascript libraries, so loading twice the same thing (130 KB each), which is stupid.
    So, you know what you have to do, clean it.

    Thanks! However my host acknowledged that they are experiencing heavy load and he fixed something so now it is loading a lot better. As well as I deactivated the lightbox plugin.

    Your header image "sumi_bridge.jpg" is also too big: 200 KB. Please, compress it more efficiently, a 70% JPEG quality will give you a 35 KB file without visible loss of quality. Then, your page will load much faster.
