we have a painfully slow site at http://www.nofari.org. I replaced our photos with smaller version. I deactivated all the plug-ins and changed the theme to twenty eleven from weaver II. This didn't make things better - the loading speed may be worse.
I took the time to update all the headers to fit the new theme size.
there are not many useful widgets available with this theme. there is a search box in the menu bar as well as in the right column. I think we only need one and I prefer it NOT be in the menu bar.
what shall I try next?
