    Can anyone design a favicon and a banner for a website? The banner will also be used on the registration/sign in page. The website is built on wordpress.

    It is for TysTechTalk.com which is a website based on hardware and software reviews and random tech articles. I am the owner of the website. Only reason for providing the link is so someone can see the theme if they are interested in helping out with a logo/favicon.

    I agree. I noticed it seemed to have slowed down after setting up CloudFlare. i just changed Name servers back to my host and was able to go from your 45 seconds and 75% grade to 4 seconds and an 85% grade switching from CloudFlare to host.

    I would agree, just took me 30 seconds to load the page and 28.5s for time to first byte. Personally whenever I've tried Cloudflare over the years I've found it to be quite slow and could never work out what the fuss is all about.

    Should be much better. I found a couple plugins causing some major issues with speed so i got rid of one of them, lowered the logging level on another.

    I tested 2 different web speed tests and got B+ or greater rankings. With shared hosting I doubt it will get much better.

    Back on topic. The icons there are just some random font I found that was semi tech related and is a place holder until someone much more skilled with Photoshop can assist.

    Got the slowness figured out. Was a plugin screwing things up along with some hardware issues on the hosting end. Its much faster now. Anyone that can help with some photoshop skills?

    Do you like these for favicon ? Would look better if the size is 16x16 or 32x32.
