Improve your WordPress site’s loading speed.

Javascript is a powerful scripting language and CSS helps in excellent presentation of web sites. Their use is common in almost all web sites. The use of Javascript ranges from creating small functionalities like form validation to advanced functions like flash like slide shows.

Usually html code and images load simultaniously. When browsers load Javascript or CSS, other code and content do not load simultaneosly. This decreases the loading speed of the web site. This problem can be resolved by combining all the Javascript code in one file and CSS in another file. Don’t worry, you do not need to learn coding to do this job. You can simply install WP minify plugin that does the job for you. This plugin can also combine external Javascript and css resulting in increased loading speed.

WordPress stores all the content in MySql database. Whenever a user visits your web site(or blog), for a basic theme without any active plugins WordPress makes atleast 16 database queries to display the content. With more number of plugins and advanced functionalities in themes, the number of databse queries will increase. This problem gets worse when there is significant traffic for your web site.

To overcome this problem, you can use WP super cache. This plugin generates static html files from your dynamic WordPress blog. After a html file is generated your webserver will serve that file instead of processing the comparatively heavier and more expensive WordPress PHP scripts (ref: )

You can download WP minify from and WP super cache from

Note: After activating the supercache and minify plugins, you need to configure the plugin settings correctly to achieve the desired results.
