    Why is my skin so slow??

    Hi

    I installed a new skin on my site @ http://www.mcseworld.com/forums/ this skin makes the site really slow, Takes about 10-15 seconds to load a single page.

    If I revert to a previous skin the site goes really fast, about 1-2 seconds to load a page.


    Does anyone have any ideas what is causing the speed problem??

    After looking at the code l noticed there is an overuse of nested tables that are probably causing this problem...

    I counted three nested tables, and three nested <div> tags all before the very first page content appears...

    I also noticed that the *.css file was written into the header, though l'm not sure if it will speed up the page load time but you should consider linking the css file instead, so it doesn't have to load on every new page view.
