A wordpress multi-site with buddypress and some standard plugins, bp-social theme. Pages take more than 20 seconds to load.
I think page load can be cut in half or better by combining some css from wp / buddypress / bp-social theme, rt-media and other stuff, and maybe cut out a majority of the (redundant?) calls to load various jquery / java stuff.
Has anyone done a step by step with these things?
From reading the info at wp-beginner I think I can hack together all the css from the various things into one or two files.. not sure about getting rid of the inline styles from bp-social and rt-media - but that's another issue.
I am really not sure about the jquery java things - can they all be cutout and just load like one or two of them and that would make everything work okay?
Special bonus if anyone has a good guide for figuring out what rt-media needs from font awesome, combine that with what is needed from wordpress for dashicons, make a shorter version with fontello, package into one file and add the css to the themes' stylesheet so I can get rid of those extra http requests.
right now - yslow - we get an "F" -
This page has 17 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
A bunch of these are loaded in the head section, and a few in the footer...
Certainly this is a fairly standard buddypress setup certainly someone has put together a how-to for this?
