Slow Time to First Byte,

Right, it was in developer mode, which ends automatically after 3 hours, so I've learned. The site does about the same or better with CF turned off. Things start to bog down with more traffic.

About half that is in the slider images. Since only one shows at a time, from a visual, above the fold, perspective, it seems okay. "Optimizing" also has often led to less than stellar photo quality.

The other images in the content boxes change dynamically with every page load, and unfortunately there are about 8000 images on the site. One-by-one optimization to maintain quality is not practical. Reportedly, there's a WP plugin that may reduce file size w/o reducing quality.

Re: further optimization, unless it's done by the host, who doesn't seem inclined, we're reaching the end of the line. We've done quite a bit within the limits of our knowledge and the budget. Both are running out.
