Hello, could someone please help me with the following questions!? :-) 1) The average loading time on my website is over 11 seconds! How do I reduce the loading time?? I have tried to reduce the amount of CSS, actually I have almost none left - but my website is still slower than a turtle! 2) I have bought PageLines Developer-edition, but if I don??t want my customers to have access to the store, how do I do it? What??s the best solution? 3) Is there a way to built a site offline or on another domain, and then transfer or upload the whole website to my customer? As you understand, I??m completely green! 4) I have use both the Kenburner- and the Feature-slider, but is there any way to get arrowheads on the Feature-slider (previous/next slide). In advance, thanks for all your help!! I really appreciate it!! Bjornar, Norway.

Hi Bjornar, 1. I added your domain to a number of tools and from the looks of it, you're on shared hosting. This is not an ideal hosting plan, the server that your domain is served from has over 200 other websites. Therefore, I would recommend possibly changing host provider and also consider purchasing a VPS or Dedicated server. You could also speak to the guys over at ZippyKid - http://www.zippykid.com/ 2. Do you mean once you have installed your customers child theme on there on domain ? 3. Most developers use software such as MAMP (for Mac) XAMPP ( for Mac/PC) and WAMPP (PC Windows server), these programs/applications basically turn your Desktop/Laptop into a local server. MAMP - http://www.mamp.info/en/index.html WAMP - http://www.wampserver.com/en/ XAMPP - http://www.apachefri...g/en/xampp.html Once you have created your local website, you can move it to a live server following the instructions here. http://codex.wordpre...oving_WordPress You can also export your Template, Primary, Special Meta settings and Layout Configuration by going to PageLines > Account. Once you have done this, go to the accounts page on your live site and then import the backup file. 4. You could use the Quick Slider which has arrow head navigation.

Thanks a bunch, Danny!! Those answers helped me tremendously!! :-) In regarding question number two, I mean after I have uploaded the site to their domain. Is the best solution to just give them a account with limited access?

Give them 'Editor' status, get all the usual add page/posts menus without the main PageLines top menu.
