I do use multiple server side includes. Could these be slowing things down? There are also 80 html links on the page.
The site is hosted on the same host as webmasterworld, a quality place so I don't think that is the reason.
Basically is there any reason the site could be loading slow other than just the size of the page?
If you really suspect SSI problems then write out time (including milliseconds) on a test page; once when an include starts and once again when the include ends. Repeat this for all code / includes on the page and you'll be able to trace how long each one takes.
Thanks for the fast responses!
The SSI is just used for navigation bars. The left column of links is inserted this way, as is the footer.
I did have a big 37kb logo at the top, but I was able to drop that to 8kb. That change didn't seem to affect the load time of the site at all.
There are some tables, about 6. The only graphic on the page is the logo. The rest is text. I think ncw164x
may have hit the problem head on. Is there any way to change these nested tables? I guess CSS could do it? Is there any easy way to convert a page to css?
You can do it using css but this will allow you to test it first
