I just signed up to this site in the hope there is someone here who can help me as I REALLY need some assistance.
I run an online magazine and for ages now we seem to have problems with the site becoming very slow. It is set-up as a wordpress multi-site as we are looking to launch new websites next year but at the moment the slowness is really setting us back as we can’t look to launch anything until we know everything will be running as it should.
The site is http://www.hitthefloor.com
It's been quite an ongoing issue over the past few years and I have tried paying for wordpress optimisation services through Envato and even paid the W3TotalCache team to optimise stuff and no luck. It always seems to work for a while and then slow again. The wordpress admin side is very slow and we get a lot of spikes in the CPU .
Caching plugins all seem to just slow the site down to a halt. I've tried W3, Super, Rocket, Hyper, Quick and probably some others I've forgotten so the site currently has no caching.
I've minimised/changed the themes, the plugins and anything else I can think of but now I'm stuck.
Our hosting has also done their best to tweak things their end and even when it speeds up a bit they still agree the site isn't running as fast it should be.
If anyone here can help that would be amazing. I'm even willing to pay someone if it's a big job.
Hopefully speak to someone soon
