    So we used Choices and WPML to make

    http://nehemiahcenter.net/

    Although the look and feel are really amazing, the site runs really slowly.

    Typically, it takes like 10 to 15 seconds before it changes to a new screen to start downloading the site. Once it starts downloading it takes place quite quickly. It isn’t so much an issue here in the states, but in Nicaragua it can take quite a long time and they aren’t happy.

    What would you guys suggest to do to help speed up the site?

    Hi andreanapier1985,

    If you look at the actual load time from W3 Total Cache it doesn’t seem to be very slow. I think going through every page on the site the longest actual load I got was 5 seconds but that was only on the very first page load.

    One thing to note is there is a small script in the footer causing a javascript error:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    /* <![CDATA[ */
    var WPGroHo = {"my_hash":""};
    /* ]]> */
    </script>

    Also, there was some delay in actually getting a response from the server so if you are on a physical server that has another very busy site or multiple busy sites it could cause issues to the whole grid.

    Overall there is a lot you can do to speed up a wordpress install but its all dependent on the individual setup. I’d suggest just a few google searches on wordpress optimization and similar terms to get a feel of the general best practices that are current.

    Regards,

    Devin
