    Hello!

    Our wordpress site is loading extremely slow, we've complained at our hosting company. They've moved us to better servers but I don't believe there's a problem from their side since it still loads slowly.

    Here is the site.

    I know that it's not the social slider since the problem was there before I installed it.
    It might be the slideshow, on the computers. Can someone examine the javaScript and see if there's anything weird?

    Please help us find out why the site loads so slowly. We have a working cache-plugin.

    Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: please move this to the wordpress subforum sorry for posting wrong

    WordPress is known to be very resource intensive.
    Who is your hosting company and what type of hosting do you have (shared, VPS, dedicated server, etc...)

    We have binero.se.
    I don't believe it's a problem on their side as they are a very acknowledged hosting company. They are even hosting wordpress support sweden. I think it might be something with the javascript on our site instead.

    Could anyone examine it? We find no errors.

    The site loaded on my desktop in less than 4 seconds, on my laptop in about the same.
    I use WP a lot and have found the SuperCache plugin to really speed things up, more than other cacheing plugins I have tried.

    EDIT: I see by your source that you are already using the SuperCache plugin. You can use [SIZE=15px]ismyblogworking.com to check if compression is working properly. It will also show just how fast your blog is now.[/SIZE]

    Not too bad of a load time from east coast us, ( considering where the server is ),

    Since I have no baseline it's tough to say, but the seems to be a bottleneck on th p80 network, jumps from 5ms responses to +250ms responses...

    Anytime you tracert a site, and you see a Big jump in response time between points, it's always suspect, but then again, I have no baseline to compare it to, it might always have this jump.

    Point is, from where I'm tracing, there's 10 possible points of slowdown that neither you or I have any control over.

    If your connection is running through p80.net you should see the same slowdown, if your on a different route, this may not be affecting you at all.

    I just checked and it loaded in about 2-3 seconds. This is counting rendering.
