Thank you for reporting this issue to us.
First of all, we would like to remind you that a theme affects the presentation and visual style of your site, while plugins add all kinds of features and functionalities.
Concerning your first issue (in this topic), it is related to the activity stream in the profile, not our theme. To make sure that our theme doesn’t have anything to do with that, I suggest you to activate another theme and try to reproduce this issue.
Concerning the performances, I don’t exactly understand your point of view. Note that it is normal to copy-paste the same reply as the advises are the same. Here is some extra explanations:
- Check the WordPress prerequisites here: WordPress requirements
If your website doesn’t have the prerequisites, it won’t work correctly and might slow down your website.
- Use a good host. We use WP Engine to host all our demos.
I understand that you have a good host. So, I don’t think this step concerns you. However, I’m sure you’ll agree that this is good advice, as some users may not use a good host.
The performances 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.
If your images are too big, I’m sure you can understand that your pages will load more slowly.
- Imsanity: Automatically resizing huge image uploads
Of course, these are basics advises and you can always add more stuff to improve your page loading time but this is a pretty good start. In conclusion, all these steps are required to make sure to optimise the performances of your website.
The more important advise we can give you: Limit the number of plugins. As you know, too many plugins will considerably slow down your page loading time. So, we advise to stick to the bare minimum! Let’s imagine that a user uses 50 plugins on his website. In this case, there is little chance that his site will work quickly, regardless of the theme used. Did you know that only two plugins (Grimlock and Kirki) are actually required to make our theme perfectly work? You can rest assured that our theme will work fine and perform better without few plugins installed.
We continually improve the performances of our themes. Please be aware that to reduce repetition in CSS, and improve powerful runtime effects like theme switching, we use variables to customize our theme.
Moreover, we developed some additional plugins (Grimlock for BuddyPress, Grimlock for the Events Calendar, etc). We didn’t choose to make all the style in the theme to keep it light. Each plugins needs his Grimlock plugin to be compatible with the theme. For exemple: if you don’t want to use BuddyPress, you don’t need the style of BuddyPress. Some theme includes this style directly in the theme. However, it will slow down your website. This is why we choose to work differently. To applying the style of the theme on BuddyPress, you need to install Grimlock for BuddyPress.
Here are some exemples:
- BuddyPress + Grimlock for BuddyPress: Create a community
- Paid Membership Pro + Grimlock for PMPro: Allow subscriptions to the community
- The Events Calendar + Grimlock for The Events Calendar: Create a calendar with events.
Please be aware that it’s more complicated than that, but I tried to explain you as simple as possible how we improve our theme. We do our best to ensure good performances and I suggest you to install a website with our theme without any extra plugins to check the performances.
I really hope this will help you understand better how our theme works and help you improve your performances. Let me know if you need more explanations. 🙂

Dude i can give you the login info to check it out… i got around 40 plugins all of them are yours plugins i add only 4-5 plugins to improve the speed….
but it’s seems very hard to get a good speed with this theme maybe you guys need to release an WProcket video tutorial to improve the speed i try everything and can’t get it faster

Hi Ori, 🙂
Can you please tell me if you need all the 40 plugins on your website?
As you know, 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. Except, of course, Grimlock plugin and Kirki plugin. 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.
Please note that this issue is related with the setting of the third party plugin WPRocket, not with the use of your theme. As theme authors, the installation, setting or debugging of third party plugins isn’t part of the support we will provide. We think this article from Online Media Master might catch your attention: The Ideal WP Rocket Settings.
To go further, we invite you to ask for more help from the plugin authors and post your request on their support forums: WPRocket support.
We remain available for all support requests related with the use of your theme.
We hope this will help!October 7, 2021 at 10:51 #35685
