    Hi,
    I am using your barely corparate theme, in my current website and I am having issues with the speed of the site.

    I think the theme and a plugin called exchange I am using may be conflicting and causing the site to move very slowly.

    Do you have any insight into this issue?

    Hi,

    Your site seems to load fine on my end, and in my inspector I don’t see any kind of conflicts, errors, missing files, 404’s, etc, that would lead to extended load times.

    So, it sounds like you’re just dealing with getting your site to run faster with all the plugins, theme, WordPress in play together with whatever resources your hosting gives you. Here’s my breakdown on this topic, which is a common question from people.

    =======

    If you’re not using a caching plugin, this can be night and day in the performance of your website. Setting up something like W3 Total Cache along with feeding assets from a CDN like Amazon S3 service (which integrates into W3 Total Cache) is a definite must these days for a snappy running site.

    Secondly, keep in mind that pulling in any data from a 3rd-party hosts can slow down your load times and give you varying results. So, for example, pulling a video from YouTube can either be instant or take an extra few seconds. You just never know because this depends on what is happening at their servers, at that moment.

    And finally, the seemingly most obvious thing to look at, when all else fails, can be your web hosting. Are you using some sort of inexpensive, shared plan? If so, you may want to consider upgrading there. Keep in mind that if you’re on a generic, cheaper shared hosting account, you’re sharing server resources with many other customers. How much traffic their sites are getting or how much server resources they’re using at any given time can effect your site and how long it takes to load, as well.
