I am really struggling to make my website load under 3 seconds. If you have achieve it could you share it with me. Below are some of the thing I have tried;

  1. install caching software
  2. Change website theme
  3. edit htaccess
  4. Corrupted function,php file
  5. Tried some plugins

The catching software was working but started conflicting with the newly introduced SitePlus Feature.

When editing haccess my website was down 3 times.

How did you achieve it??

Also for the power user I have a question what is the problem with this code

## EXPIRES CACHING ##
<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/jpg “access 1 year”
ExpiresByType image/jpeg “access 1 year”
ExpiresByType image/gif “access 1 year”
ExpiresByType image/png “access 1 year”
ExpiresByType text/css “access 1 month”
ExpiresByType text/html “access 1 month”
ExpiresByType application/pdf “access 1 month”
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript “access 1 month”
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash “access 1 month”
ExpiresByType image/x-icon “access 1 year”

When SiteSpeed was introduced, we were told to remove any cache plugins. This may have made it worse so it seems.

I'll leave you the link to read over just in case there is something there that can help.. When I had problems at first, I contacted SiteSupport and they fixed it for me, have you thought to send them a ticket to see if they can help?

OMG what have you done my friend!

what you need to do is read this -

I do use pingdom but it is still loading for 6 seconds sometimes.

yes but are you using the WA site speed tool???

Yes since it was launched.

Are you using EWWW image optimizer ?

paul

Yep as recommended.

OK then use the new WA update on the site speed and sort out your images that way -
read this OK Paul

Hey Jhurreea,

Once you're ready to move your free site to a registered domain here at WA, you won't need the cache plugin any more ... you'll have access to SiteSpeed ... AND ... a security certificate too!

Both great reasons to make sure to host your registered domains right here at WA.

I am a premium member dear, but still getting some problem on my website, themes plugins. I am frustrated.

From your response to Paul, it sounds like you're testing your site for speed several times in a row and receiving different results each time.
