    A fresh installation of WordPress default theme on my hosting – GTmetrix shows page load time of around 1 second.

    Switch to Directory theme (same hosting, same domain) – page load time goes up to around 4 seconds.

    All those files in PageSpeed Insights report are files belonging to PP themes. There is no customization on my end, there are no heavy images/files on the website.

    I cannot Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content.

    Minify plugins don’t work with PP, I tried a few of them, all of them destroy website’s layout.

    I tried the following plugins:
    W3 Total Cache
    Page Speed
    GZip Ninja Speed Compression
    Global Javascript
    Far Future Expiration Plugin

    GtMetrix continues to point to different problems:

    200.3KiB of JavaScript is parsed during initial page load. Defer parsing JavaScript to reduce blocking of page rendering.

    wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.11.0 (86.2KiB)
    wp-content/themes/DT/framework/js/core.jquery.js (63.4KiB)
    wp-content/themes/DT/framework/js/bootstrap.js (26.4KiB)
    wp-content/themes/DT/framework/js/jquery.countdown.js (13.1KiB)
    wp-content/themes/DT/framework/js/core.ajax.js (6.8KiB)

    Remove query strings from static resources
    Resources with a “?” in the URL are not cached by some proxy caching servers. Remove the query string and encode the parameters into the URL for the following resources:
