I’m using Gwangi since 3 years now 🙂 but I still have a very important issue about speed performance.
Have to wait between 10 and 20 seconds to have a page displayed.
I already asked a developer who doesn’t find a way to solve it.
Do you think you can help find a way ?

We thank you for your feedback. We are glad to read that you have been using our theme for 3 years. 🙂
First and foremost, please check the WordPress prerequisites here:
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 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.
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! 🙂

Unfortunately, it’s not simple. My best advise is that you deactivate all your plugins and activate them one by one to see which one make a difference.

Hope this will help you solve your issue.
Don’t hesitate to share the solution with us. I’m sure it will help other users facing the same issue. By doing this, you will be making a great contribution to this forum, and we thank you very much for that! #SharingIsCaring 💪🏻
