Site suggestions? - Mike4040 - 08-06-2013 08:56 AM

Hi there,

This is my 1st post at the forums.

My Trust/Charity/Medical website is http://www.berjeesmemorialtrust.com/, running on Joomla 2.5.9 jquery based.

How do you rate the results & any ways to further improve?

Hoping to hear from you geniuses,


PS: Do you provide paid services to restructure site's back end, add modules, plugins & forums?

I don't provide paid services but there are a lot of WPO consultants that do (Web Performance Optimization). Quite a few of them hang out here though it might be worthwhile to also post in the help needed forum and ask them to PM you: http://www.webpagetest.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?fid=20

Looking at a test result, it does look like you need to get the back-end under control before spending much time looking at anything else: http://www.webpagetest.org/result/130806_BB_021d8a380ba9080aa29b5b22b9aa2b33/2/details/

A quick improvement would be to figure out why javascript on the page is redirecting to /index.php and eliminate that. That would get rid of one of the super-expensive back-end calls and should be a lot cleaner in general.
