Optimizing My Site's Plugins Correctly

Hi, I have several of your plugins installed on this site and I believe I may have too many..the site is SUPER SLOW! It recently has started taking 45-60 secs to upload an image and when it completes there are 4-5 copies also uploaded. I have Hummingbird, Branding, and several others but believe it may be overkill.

Can someone who knows the best combination and use case optimization for a high traffic, lots of media blog style membership site? I have to speed things up or client is going to get upset, and I do like your plugins...just need help optimizing them asap please. Thank you.

    Hi Joey Martin,

    Before optimizing the plugins, can you please make sure you have done all elementary things to speed up your website? We have an ultimate mega guide for speeding up WordPress website, here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/speeding-up-wordpress/

    I'll request you to go through that guide first, and follow the steps suggested there. If your site is still slow after following everything in that guide, please let us know. We will be glad to have a look on your plugins and suggest you on those.

    If you want us have a look on your current setup in the mean time, would you mind allowing Support Access so we can have a closer look at this?

    To enable support access you can follow this guide here:
    http://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/wpmu-dev-dashboard-enabling-staff-login/

    Please confirm here when you are done granting Support Access. Either me or our other awesome support staffs will jump in and help you in this matter.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!

    Hi Joey Martin,

    Hope you are doing good today. :slight_smile:

    This entirely depends upon the skills of your developer who you are gonna hire, and it's subjective. You can check our Job & Pros section, in order to get some professional help.

    I tried to log in via support access, but it seems like I'm being redirected to the home page, so I'm not able to check your issue fully. Do you have any security plugin enabled? If yes, please disable the plugin temporarily in order to access your dashboard.

    I did check your website in pingdom test, and Pagespeed:
    https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/VvTXc/yourstylevault.com
    https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=yourstylevault.com&tab=desktop

    You can improve the scores as mentioned with the use of Hummingbird, and Smush Pro plugins. Would like to check your dashboard, on how these are implemented.

    Please let us know once you have enabled support access, so that we could give a closer look. Have a nice day. :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
    Nithin
