Fast and clean wordpress theme

Recommended Posts

Anyone suggestions for a fast and clean wordpress theme?


When googling around I always get themes with pagebuilders in them and my experience is that they impact the sitespeed a lot.


I want to make a fast loading website. with simple / minimalistic design ... yet looks professional :-)


thanks a lot

What's the effect of wordpress itself on loading speed? I honestly don't know but I have heard it said that if speed is you priority you might be better to use good old html files or a flat file CMS.

The only 3rd party Wordpress themes I've ever analysed were all bloated and slow, by its very nature as soon as you add plugins to Wordpress you start adding bloat.


I agree with TimW, if you want speed and clean you're better off with a "clean slate" CMS so you can build with speed in mind, or use regular .html files.

      I’m very curious about this topic cause the definition of web designer is different from country to country, for example some countries define a web designer as a person who knows design and programing (Javascript and php etc).
      I wanna know where you are from and which language you need to be web designer like the following.
      Country   :  Japan
      Language:   HTML,CSS,*JavaScript, *wordpress 
      *As to JavaScript, you don’t have to know everything about it but at least how it works. 
        Plus you basically just need to know how to customize jQuery.
       I really wanna know to what extent I should learn JS or php if I need to learn them as web designer in some countries.
      Thanks in advance for your help !

      Ok, so this is a slightly strange request but my clients have asked me to put in some ads that appear to the side of the drop down menu text... I have had a quick couple of searches of plug ins but can't find anything suitable for this. Any suggestions? Or what alternatives would you suggest? It's a tourist website that also sell advertising space to local businesses and vacation rentals

      Hi Guys,
      Let me start by declaring that I'm just a kid trying to self teach myself wordpress, simply because I enjoy it as a hobby. This is my first ever website, so constructive criticism in easy-to-understand terms is welcome! 
      I have made a website advertising myself as a web developer. Let me remind you I'm just doing this as a hobby for friends and family - so don't expect the website to be anywhere near the standard of a professional designer!!!
      I think I have just about finished the website, however there are a couple of issues that I would like to clear up that I don't understand. 
      Website: magnifiweb.co.uk
      1. When I am on the website and switching to and from the different navigation pages it loads very quickly. However, when I haven't been on the website for a few hours and load it up by typing 'magnifiweb.co.uk' into the URL, it can take at least 5 seconds to load the home page. I have used some speed test websites like Pingdom, and it says that the wait time is mainly down to the URL 'waiting'. I have absolutely no redirects set up to slow this process down, so can't understand why only sometimes it can take this long to load. 
      2. Using the same Pingdom speed test website (see attached image), there is an image called 'logooriginalwhitebg150px-150x150.jpg' I have circled this in red. This is an OLD image that I decided to remove from my Wordpress media library and and not use anymore. I navigated to the location of this image in my File Manager in Cpanel and deleted it from the folder as well - but for some reason it keeps coming back! Every time I go and check that folder in cpanel the same image has come back on it's own. Very frustrating.
      Any advice on these matters is greatly appreciated!

      Hi. I'm pretty new to web design, having taught myself Wordpress last summer and having worked with only a couple of themes/builders. I've recently been asked to do a bit of work on this site https://www.katerinasteventon.com/ (which uses Avada theme) and have done a few small bits but I can't find out how to remove the white area between the sliding banner and the navigation. Can't see any padding anywhere on various settings I've looked at.
      Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
