After some preliminary testing, it seems whatever is initiated in the header.php and footer.php files is the major culprit. Take those away, and we load in about 1.2 seconds.
Of course, no css (and whatever else) means it’s a plain looking site.
Not sure if it’s my pc. I don’t want to think about the possibility of my new hosting being the problem.
Dev Dawn is having issues.
I’ve been trying to clean up the front page, so that it loads faster. I’ve removed a bunch of stuff out of the Sidebar. It should theoretically work.
The problem is, that I can make changes immediately to the database, which should show up, or even to the files themselves, via ftp, and it takes a long time to show.
I’m contemplating going back to basics.
Dev Dawn today has taken an average of 10 seconds, or thereabouts, to load. That is woeful.
