I have two WP subdirectories off of a Joomla domain. The Joomla load time is ok. However, the WPs are so so sooooo slow. The back end is slow too. I have w3 cache installed on both and I've copied the settings from some great resources, but they are still slow! Could someone please take a look?

I took a quick peek, and the sites loaded quickly for me. Try the usual WP debugging stuff first -- disable all plugins and re-enable them one at a time, to see if one of them is causing the slowdown; try using a default WP theme (Twenty Eleven/Twelve/Thirteen) to see if your theme is the culprit. It'll help narrow down the potential scope of your problem. –  Pat J Sep 9 '13 at 19:28
    
I'm pretty sure the theme is the culprit on Howl 2-Go, but idk about the blog... The thing is I don't have time to do a redesign. We're about to redesign the entire site over the winter so I just want to bring this site up to speed for the time being if I can. Check out these two PHP files, is there anything I can do about this: gtmetrix.com/reports/www.howlatthemoon.com/… –  stephm Sep 9 '13 at 19:33

sam as Pat, I see < 1 second loading time on both of those links. the 2nd has some javascript errors you should probably fix, but that's unrelated. do you see a difference if you're logged in versus not logged in? cacheing may be disabled for logged in visitors. –  Milo Sep 9 '13 at 19:35

your site is calling same file two times.

http://www.howlatthemoon.com/howl2go/wp-content/themes/cleanspace/js/core/theme.php?ver=3.5.2

Actually those are two different files. One is js and one is css. I am very aware of how slow they are but I have no idea how to correct that –  stephm Sep 10 '13 at 16:23
