    I already installed W3 Total Cache but I think the site is stil loading to slow.

    Home Page:
    Ran your URL through PageSpeed Insights (https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=xxxhut.org&tab=desktop)

    You will benefit from using WP Smush to optimize the images on your website surely.

    It is also suggested on the Insights page to leverage browser caching. Here's the link for how to best do that: https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/insights/LeverageBrowserCaching

    Speed also seems to be an issue. Here's a guide to optimize Wordpress performance: http://www.wpbeginner.com/wordpress-performance-speed/

    There is also this: Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content. Your page has 10 blocking script resources and 12 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.

    Here is how to get rid of that error: https://varvy.com/pagespeed/render-blocking.html

    You will also benefit from JavaScript minification (https://jscompress.com/) and CSS minification (https://cssminifier.com/). Make sure you backup your code first, though. Sometimes those minification programs will eff up your site something fierce. But if you do it right, and everything else above, you'll have a smooth running site.

    Source: Whenever I make a site, I spend hours optimizing it to the greatest extent. I try for 100/100, but settle for 95/100 where necessary.
