    Hi @vpbay,

    In answer to speed, only one thing can improve the speed of a Wordpress site, fewer plugins. The irrefutable fact is that the more data there is to load initially, the slower it will be. 

    Developer sites are the fastest normally. Far fewer lines of code for the same job, equals faster load times. 

    An easy proof of this is the text only web browser W3M. It is simply amazingly fast because it doesn't load any images or graphics. There is nothing faster for a web browser. When just needing info it's perfect.
