WP - Optimization

1. Minimizing Plugins

The first and easiest way to improve WordPress performance is plugins. Deactivate and delete any unnecessary plugins. Try selectively disabling plugins to measure server performance.


2. Themes

After plugins come theme optimization.Please choose the WordPress theme which is well optimized.Using so much jquery will also affect the speed of the theme.


3. Image Files

Are there any unnecessary images? (e.g. Can you replace some of the images with text?)

Make sure all image files are optimized. Choose the correct format (JPG/PNG/GIF) for the type of image.


4. Total File Number/Size

Can you reduce the number of files needed to display the average page on your site?

Combine multiple CSS files into a single, optimized file.


Minify CSS and JavaScript files.


If necessary, look into plugins to help this process.


Query Reduction/Optimization


Can static values be hard coded into your themes? This will mean you have to edit code every time you make changes, but for generally static areas, this can be a good trade off.


For example, your site charset, site title, and so on.


Can you hard code menus that rarely change? Avoiding functions like wp_list_pages() for example.


You can also use offloading to optimize your theme.
