Wordpress is great except I did not like the slowness of page loading. So I have been experimenting with some plugins that make the pages load really fast and thought I would let you guys know what they are.
The first one is called WP parallel loading system. Which can be downloaded here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...oading-system/
You have to know how to set up sub-domains and insert them into plugin to use this one. Don't set up more than what's recommended.
The second one is called quick cache which can be downloaded here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/quick-cache/
It's pretty much basic and user friendly so you don't have to know a lot to use this one. Just leave the default settings and make sure to turn it on after activating the plugin.
The third one is called WP Widget cache which can be downloaded here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-widget-cache/
If you use many widgets like I do then you need this one. Normal caching plugins don't cache your widgets so they slow up your page load. Setting this one up requires you to go into your widget page and select each widget you wish to be cached by filling in the expire in seconds section. I put 36000 seconds in that because that's the default for the other cache plugins. If you put up pages quite often and you have widgets that reflect that you added something new, these widgets you may not want to cache so that changes will show up instantly. But there are also check boxes for options that clean out the cache of a widget you want to show changes instantly.
And even though some widgets say they may not work with the current version wordpress, which is user opinion, they actually do work. I have the current version and each one works just fine.
Here's my page in case you want to know how fast it makes it load: http://yecheadquarters.org/
I use a lot of pics on some pages is the reason I use three plugins to gain loading speed. Make sure to read about the widgets instructions you use here in case you run into a problem which maybe just a simple fix by changing a setting. Every blog set up is different, mine is custom set up with custom templates. Yours may not be or a different custom set up.
