Make a Wordpress site fast loading and error free
Need somebody to work on an existing wordpress site running Gazette theme.
Had hired somebody else for customization, but he seems to have messed it up. Here is what needs to be done-
Clean all not found errors in Google webmasters along with html improvements taken care of.
Make the slideshow work properly
The latest posts not coming up on the home page, though they are reflected in the side bar. The sequence of the posts is also messed up.
Make the font size on all the posts more readable, preferably increase the line space on all the posts as well.
Create a 468x60 ad space on top right of website logo. Also modify logo to remove the dot com, or change it altogether
Create additional ad boxes.
Reduce the font size of Category tabs and sidebar posts tab so that they are in a single line, currently they have spilled into the next line.
Any other issue that would make the site more appealing and engaging, along with fast loading.
A fast loading site, with no errors, would help me in SEO and get better rankings
Suggestions, if any, are most welcome
