I've tried, using plugins on some sites and using code on others. (EG: used the attached code to defer parsing of javascript on GTMetrix still says to defer parsing of javascript. On I have these plugins running: Leverage Browser Caching, Remove Query Strings From Static Resources, WP Super Minify, Far Future Expiration Plugin, but GTMetrix still gives us a bad score and tells me to fix those issues and the site is VERY slow.) The other site on the server is

I have a web developer who says he can fix the issues permanently, but we'd probably need to keep him around. I think this is the way to go, but i'm looking for other solutions to provide as options to the CEO.
