Very slow Wordpress site

My travel blog is loading very slowly, especially the photo galleries. I'm using Wordpress, Nextgen Gallery, and Foobox. I'm into photography, so I want to have lots of high quality images (Retina, when possible). But I don't know how to optimize them to load reasonably fast. Or it could be something else causing the slow load times. I really don't know. [more inside]

Looking for opinions on Media Temple for hosting a blog....

Just curious if anyone has any strong opinions about switching to Media Temple -- which is owned by GoDaddy. Has GoDaddy improved its image or reputation or anything since I last checked (which was years ago)? Does it matter that GoDaddy and MT are run separately or not?

Moving images after a messed up Wordpress move

Recently two Wordpress sites of mine were merged into one, by someone else. But some of the images didn't transfer, though the posts did. So at this point, I can go into one of the moved posts with the missing images and the image is just a blank box with the URL pointing to the old website. There are about hundred+ posts like this.

Free wordpress themes - appearance somewhat comparable to divi or avada

Looking for a responsive wordpress theme that's quick loading, doesn't have a lot of bloat, and lets me use my own plugins (SEO, etc.). I used to work in the biz; that plus my current field and sometimes slightly particular aesthetics make a certain amount of customization inevitable. There's so much out there to weed through and many reviews/compilations aren't all that helpful.

How do you choose a WordPress theme?

With so many choices of themes, how does one go about narrowing them down? I'm a bit overwhelmed by the myriad of choices. I understand that security, updates, and responsiveness are all important. I'm brand new to WordPress and want to get going on building my installation, but I'm really kind of stuck until I figure out this theme thing. Bonus Question: I do realize you get what you pay for when it comes to themes. Do you have any recommendations for reasonably priced ones?

Should I self-host my blog or post to a site with a built-in community?

I've been a blogger, off and on, since "weblog" first became a word, but the way blogs and communities are built these days confounds me.

WordPress - more like WordLost

I am starting a blog using a very simple wordpress template. But, Wordpress cuts off the post so that users see only the beginning. In addition, it is not clear that there is more content to follow. Is this a theme issue? I need the whole post (including photos) to show on the main page. This seems so basic. I tried googling but no luck.

WordPress Instagram plugin that shows by hashtag AND location together?

Do you know of a WordPress Instagram plugin that will allow me to show together in a single gallery all images that are tagged as a certain location OR that use a certain hashtag? To restate: it's all the images that are marked with a certain location, and all the images that are marked with a certain hashtag. I'm trying to avoid installing and testing dozens of plugins to see if any do this.

Updating a WordPress site?

A client asked me to update their current website, which is running on Wordpress (which I'm not super familiar with). But there doesn't seem to be a built in way to build this newer version (same number of pages, swapping out photos and text) while keeping the current one live. Is there a built in way to do this? If not, how is a Wordpress site generally revamped while keeping the current site live?
