Speed up "Add to Cart" function and Page Rendering in Prestashop 1.5.3.1

Cancelled

Job Description

Hello potential team member,
We need someone to speed up the response time of our website at www.SmallPetFeeders.com. We're running Prestashop 1.5.3.1 with a new version 1.5 database. Potential applicants should be able to debug the functions running after clicking the Add to Cart button.

Here are the two main keypoints of what we want done:
1. Speed up the Add to Cart function of our store to a 1 second response time, which has been slowed to about 10 seconds. The store has had it sped up before, so I know it is possible.
2. Speed up the Page Rendering on the store. We've gotten complaints that the store is slow to load. Solve any issues which may be slowing down the store.

If you can complete this without causing further issues, we'd love to have you complete this job for us. No changes are allowed to the live server without first being tested on your localhost environment.

I look forward to reading your application.

-Dave
