    i have suffusion theme. I think the theme is too heavy because of all the customization options. I need best tips to speed up a wordpress site.

    Obviously I need to look at other themes. I have caching plugins. I don't have that many plugins on my site.

    This is an active community engagement blog that I put unique content on.

    Googling "suffusion slow" gives many results, so I think it might be a problem with the theme as you already suggested.

    One of the results had a solution that might or might not work for you:

    "Go to Sidebars and Widgets -> Sidebar Layout and disable JQuery Masonry"

    Have a go and let us know if that helps in any way.

    If it just started happening I would also look to make sure you weren't a victim of the timthumb exploit.
