Before creating a new discussion, please:
1. Check on forum if discussion hasn`t been created before. Use the forum Search on the right.
2. Read carefully the documentation included to package.
3. If you didn`t find what you need and would like to post a new question click the "Start a New Discussion" button on the right.
4. You can post on forum only after registration (you need purchase code to register) .

NOTE!!! If you are starting a new topic and have got problems with your site and you want us to check what`s wrong please always give url to your site because without that we can`t check what`s wrong. Each case may be different because of your installed plugins, servers or other things.

IMPORTANT!!! Along with your inquiry, please attach the address of the page which concerns the question. This will cause the time to answer on your question will be much shorter. If you do not want to publish your address publicly in the forum, please send a private message. Thanks!

Performance issues


I've got a new WP installation, installed BE Theme and bundled plugins, and din't do anything else yet. The site takes really long to load, especially considering there's not even any images or anything on it yet.

On Google PageSpeed Insights I got a 29 Score, with a Time to Interactive of 7.3s

When I switch to Twenty twenty theme, I get a Score of 82, Time to Interactive of 1.7s.

I've then tried installing one of the pre-built sites, but the performance stayed the same.
Admin Dashboard is sluggish as well, and gets quicker as soon as I deactivate BE Theme. Something must be wrong here, what can I do to get decent performance?

Thank you!

  • Hi Pablo,

    I am aware that BeTheme is a multipurpose template and I've used quite a few others in the past. But never ever have I seen a 7 sec load time out of the box.
    I know there are some caching plugins and optimizations to improve performance, but that's maybe to take it from 2.5 sec to 1.5 sec. - if I'll start at 7 it'll never be acceptable.

    Are you saying this performance is the "normal" expected scenario with this theme??

  • Yes you're right, seems like the iPage server couldn't handle it. I've put it on a different web host now and performance is much better. 

    Thanks for your help!
