    Hi the website seems rather slow to load up, is there anything I can do to speed it up?

    Can be many things – plugins, images, hosting, setup etc. Hard to say without seeing the site.

    You can get a better idea of what might need improving by testing your site by online tools such as:

    Hi Andrew,

    That’s great but please remember that using cache can cause issues like not seeing the changes you’ve made from admin. You have to clear cache of your plugin setting and your browser cache every now and then.
