I’ve been focusing a lot of time lately on page performance, learning about the best ways to optimise websites to load quicker. A significant part of the overall user experience is the delivery time. So here are three things you can do right now to add instant speed to your WordPress website.
Something I’ve always been frustrated with in the WordPress world is the lack of a simple, filterable portfolio plugin.
