    I have been noticing that my WordPress site has been running pretty slow with your theme.

    I started to do some testing and it seems that the “Kirki Customizer Framework” plugin is adding an extra 2 seconds to load times.
    I went through and activated each plugin individually and the “Kirki Customizer Framework” was adding the most loading time out of all my other plugins activated.

    Any idea how to resolve this issue?
    I am aware that the “Kirki Customizer Framework” plugin is required with Grimlock. (Thats was it says in you documentation)

    Thank you.

    Hi Benjamin,

    Thank you for reaching out. We’re sorry to read you’re facing bad performances with your website.

    First and foremost, please check the WordPress prerequisites here: WordPress requirements

    For better performance and improve security, we obviously recommend PHP 7.4+. Nevertheless, if this is not possible for you (server type, incompatibilities with plugins, etc.), we recommend at least version 5.6.X.

    We use WP Engine to host all our demos. The performance of your website can also be improved, like our demos, by some additional plugins:

    • WP Rocket: Improving the speed of your WordPress site
    • Imagify: Shrinking your images with lowest quality loss
    • Imsanity: Automatically resizing huge image uploads

    You can always add more stuff to improve your page loading time but this is a pretty good start.

    Please be aware that too many plugins will considerably slow down your page loading time. So, we advise to stick to the bare minimum!
    Our theme offers a built-in setup wizard if you wish to import one of our demos but you can skip it and start your website without installing any plugin or importing any demo content as only two plugins (Grimlock and, as you said, Kirki) are actually required to make our theme perfectly work. Not every use-case is the same and we believe that our customers should be left with the decision of what to and not to install. You can rest assured that our theme will work fine and perform better without few plugins installed.

    Please note that your issue has already been adressed in another topic from the Kirki support: Loading time. I suggest you to add the PHP snippet made by the author.

    Finally, this topic might also catch your attention as one of our user shared the server configuration that has helped him to solve a similar issue:

    We hope this will help! 🙂

    Kind regards,

    Benjamin
