    1. Read these guides:

    2. According to Pingdom's Speed Test tool, your "Wait" time (The web browser is waiting for data from the server) is the cause of the problem. You'll want to either move your site to a host with faster serves or upgrade your hosting package.

    Here are the 3 main things I look at:
    Server speed- be sure your hosting provider is not a slow one.
    Plugin usage- try not to install and activate too many, this will slow down your performance.
    Theme- use a lightweight theme

    With what you got going now you may want to start with deactivating all your plugins and running the speed test again. If it's much quicker activate one plugin then test speed and repeat until you find the one that is slowing you down.

    So, its about hosting?

    Currently using shared hosting.
    Do you want us to move to vps?

    I read all of the above posts on bhw but the problem is different. We need to have all of the wordpress plugins but we also need high speed. Is upgrading to vps hosting will fix issues?

    The main slowing down is causing by buddypress and bbpress plugins (also jetpack and s2member maybe..)
    But those are the must-have plugins. I cant disable them. We need both: functionality and speed. How to do?

    If you want something fast you can try a plugin solution like zen-cache or wp-chache

    I never went beyond the popup so I never inspected too closely (the minute I see attempts to open other Windows etc I bail because it screams malware even if it's clean)

    Is all the material hosted locally? or are you streaming etc from an origin site? With the amount of material you have it will slow things down massively if you are having to load them up and stream them from other sites. Locally hosting them will speed things up.

    The downside is that there is so much to upload to the browser it's going to be slow. You could try categorizing your site and so rather than loading up every image and vid there is you will load only a category example, which is nothing more than a link to the appropriate page/material.

    It's better to use gtmetrix to see speed, because they will show you where you have problems

    1. Too much plugins. BBpress, budypress, s2member, contact form, gravity form. Why do you need so much member plugins?
    2. You don't have cache system. Scripts are not combined, too much css files, too much external files

    You can try tips from this article, but I think that you need to reduce amount of plugins - this is the main problem

    You could also check for the cache on the site.

    At first you should optimize your site's images. Images plays a vital role in page speed. Then it also depends on your domain, hosting and many other things.

    Check plugins first off. Install the free plugin P3 to test the speed of your plugins. Some you have to have but some you may have to just find a replacement.

    Do you have a CDN installed? If not check out Cloudflare for a free CDN that works great and will speed up you site worldwide. After setting it up you will see the difference almost immediatly.
