I sure could use some help.
I created a simple child theme using thematic (which I think is awesome!). My problem is that my web site takes way too long to load (over 30 secs)!
URL - http://www.srinair.com
Hosting - EasyCGI
WordPress Version - 2.9.2 (index.php in the root directory, pointing to the sub folder where WP is actually installed)
Plugins Installed - All in One SEO Pack (v188.8.131.52), Contact Form 7(v2.1.1), W3 Total Cache (Disabled)(v0.8.5.1), WP-Polls(v2.5), Akismet (v2.2.7)
I have tried the following to speed things up:
1) Enable GZIP compression
Custom PHP.INI with the following:
zlib.output_compression = On
zlib.output_handler = On
zlib.output_compression_level = 6
http://www.srinair.com/phpinfo.php - In case you want to see my PHP settings.
2) W3 Total Cache Plugin
3) Using the Firebug add-on in Firefox, I get a score of 73/100 after running "Page Speed". I get a red exclamation against the following:
- Leverage browser caching
- Combine external CSS
- Enable compression (shouldn't enabling GZIP take care of this?)
Any help or suggestion anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
