Thanks for mentioning everything. I've started to slowly work on these with some WordPress plugins (speed issues). In terms of the login/register buttons, there actually was one on the black bar at the top but since it was a popup for the theme login, it resulted in a lot of spam registrations. I removed it for the time being but totally forgot about it. I'll sort it out todayI'll divide this into points to hopefully make this easier to parse.
#1 - I couldn't find the login / register options until I clicked through to Forum. You should consider making it a lot more prominent.
#2 - Full load takes approximately 11 seconds here. If possible, you might want to cut that down.
#3 - You're using HTTP/1.1 which is much slower than HTTP/2 at transferring large numbers of files.
#4 - You don't seem to be using any sort of compression for transferring files. Gzip or the more modern Brotli would be great for reducing file sizes and in turn make page loads faster.
#5 - You don't seem to utilise any sort of browser side caching.
It's mainly a blog actually. The forum is just an added feature on the site for discussions or for users to get help.Most of the feedback I would say has already been said. I just wanted to add that I legitimately thought this was a website/blog when I first saw it. It was not immediately apparent that this is a forum
I like the look of a button/link there so I will look into it. Thanks for the suggestion .Ahh something a bit more original - I like it.
That's all actually. I really like the site so far, keep it up.
- Even though the site is mostly a blog, I would still try to emphasize the forum link a bit. Maybe move it/add one into the white space where the logo is.

- Although it loads fairly quickly for me, run it through PageSpeed Insights and try to improve your score there. Lots of little things that need to be optimized.
