Hi. I am working on a very very simple site:http://urviandroshan.us/main/


And for some reason it loads so slow - see here:

It looks like the pageless dynamic file is what is slowing down the site. How can I remedy this?

Hey!
Actually usually it takes 4.6 seconds.
So odd!
When I load it after clearing my cache it's always UBER slow.
I've compressed files, etc.
It's a wedding website so the client is really intent on making sure it loads fast the first time around since people will visit it only once .

Your site is actually faster than the average of 6 seconds.

P.S - just visited your site to test stuff and IMO it's incredibly annoying to have auto playing music with no way to turn it off. I immediately left.

hey.
yes. I agree on the music. lol.
It's what the client wants, as with the fade in, etc. He doesn't want people to turn it off.

this doesn't solve the issue of why it takes so long to load the the pageless dynamic file. it would be great to have a solution to this.

What does that code do?

I am also having problems with a website loading slowly. Pingdom says that "pagelines-compiled-css-1_1352939713" is 192.7 kB in size and is taking over a second just waiting...

define( 'LESS_FILE_MODE', true );
This code stops the site compiling LESS and goes back to using a single static CSS file.
