Not sure where to post this as it pertains to most shape 5 wordpress themes. Since SEO is key, whenever I run a site through page insights or website grader, sites using shape 5 themes are rated poorly. Normally for these issues:
page speed
page request (http requests)
render blocking (java script and css that interfere with loading above the fold content

Are there things that can be done to eliminate this?

Are any details given as to more specific causes of the slowness?  I'm working towards getting the WP releases caught up to the same release schedule as the Joomla club right now, but as soon as that's done, I'll definitely be working on a lot of improvements to the WP version of the framework.  Optimization is definitely a very high priority on the list of things I plan to do for the framework.

sent in pm to you. also in update to one of themes, there is an extra line causing the sitemap generators to not work. here is what i was told.
This is caused by a blank space before the opening PHP tags that look like this <?php of after the closing PHP tags that look like this ?> in one of your theme files.  You'll need to go through your theme and check for blank spaces and remove them.  Start with the header.php, footer.php, index.php and functions.php and go from there.  This issue will break all XML code so it doesn?t matter what XML Sitemap plugin you try, blank spaces in PHP code break XML code.

it is on the new vision template. didn't have problem in past but now it is not working.

The links you sent don't seem to go to any actual files, and even if they did, the cached files probably wouldn't help me determine the cause.

As for the sitemap issue, have you changed anything recently?  Knowing what has been changed when the problem started is a big step towards finding the cause.
