So apparently the gallery fader has been the thing that has slowed down the website because it seems to load images it can’t. Until I find a fix I have removed it from the front page. Now the front page loads much more smoothly.
On other news I am planning on redoing the website in wordpress instead of drupal as drupal seems to be way more complicated than it needs to be. It’s great when you want to customize everything with your own code but I really don’t have the time or energy to completely write all the code for this site to get it just the way I want, especially when other programs can do essentially the same with far less programming and hassle.
If you have any suggestions for what you want in the new site please feel free to reply here and I will see what I can do, and will probably post a more formal message about it later.
