We've recently updated from Platform Pro to Pagelines and I'm noticing significantly slower page loading.
When I run a test on pingdom (), it's showing that my "connect" (notated in blue) and "wait" (notated in yellow) are pretty high. I don't know if that means we need to reconfigure something on our server or what. (Note: We are on a Windows box (IIS 7) as our team builds .asp software applications. So that configuration may not be ideal, but we didn't have speed issues on Platform Pro. Please also note that since our tech team is all asp - and I'm only self-taught enough to be dangerous as my background is in design - we aren't incredibly versed in php and all things wordpress.)
Also in that pingdom report, it's showing i am getting a 404 on the stlye.css file, which is in the themes folder where it should be. So not sure why that's the case.
We are currently using a child theme. We were using the pagelines customize plugin for our css, which seemed to deliver better speed for some reason, but did not work with IE8 on Windows XP. I have another thread on that.
We tried adding this to the functions.php file in the customize plugin: add_filter( 'render_css_posix_', '__return_true' );
Got that from a forum thread, but our site is still slow.
Here is our site:
Any help would be immensely appreciated.
