Minimize HTTP Request Help?

Hi all,

I’m new here. I used yslow to analyzed my site and I got grade F for the http request as following.

This page has 18 external Javascript scripts. Try combining them into one.
This page has 6 external stylesheets. Try combining them into one.
This page has 7 external background images. Try combining them with CSS sprites.

I’m using wordpress, is there a way I can fix those problem without changing the theme?

Thanks for all the help,

If you are willing to experiment with it some, you can use the W3 Total Cache plugin to help you combine the javascript and css without changing the template. The sprite will likely require changes to the template.

Create a new CSS file, and copy/past all the content into the new file.
Repeat for JS
Pass file through minify software
and link that file in wordpress.

I will try the the W3 plug-in. Thanks for the answer!
