I bought a lot of wordpress themes here on theme forest, but suddenly I realized that even basic pages in themes are geting really big. Below are two examples for which I think they are great templates, but loading times are bad.
I choose pages with very little content and examples are:
example 1 has 1.3MB to load page or
example 2 is 1.2MB to load page.
Both of this examples for a normal page would be somwhere around 0.1 to 0.3MB.
Because of this page loading times significly increase. Am I supposed to put everything out that I don’t need and if so why aren’t there any instructions how to do this.
What do you think about this?
(...) would be somwhere around 0.1 to 0.3MB
If You won’t upload/remove images, it will have less than 0.3mb…
(...) would be somwhere around 0.1 to 0.3MBIf You won’t upload/remove images, it will have less than 0.3mb…
Not really. In example 1 images are 796KB, so still remains 500KB and
in example 2 images are 512KB so still remains 700kb.
So there is a lot of additional code left.
I did some research and example 2 is made of:
So you probaly say this is ok, and if we want to have modern site with options and working on all devices then this is it.
This is just the price you probably pay for multipurpose products.
This is entirely the developer’s discretion, and the mark of inexperience. Envato should be building search tools that profile themes based on expected performance: HTTP requests, KB per file type, uses minification, uses sprites, uses SVG, etc.
Maybe, but it would be good thing if I would be able to turn-off unnecessary options in admin panel or maybe simple instrucitions where in code you remove lines.
For example FontAwesome isn’t needed in lot of websites but you can’t just turn it off.
1.3 and 1.2 mb is nothing compare to this top selling theme.. Lol.
