Under the Hood

All the options can be controlled within the admin interface. From there you can choose the front page elements, the fonts and various options that the theme has. The admin panel it has a lot of elements and is quite easy to choose what you need. Below are a couple of pictured so you can see exactly what it has:

Performance

Another import factor in a theme is performance and how fast is loading. A theme has to not have a lot of elements and load fast to offer a nice experience for the visitor. Is important especially if you are using also other plugins. I have done a test on a webserver build with easyengine that using a caching plugin that comes with easyengine and the results are quite good.

The webserver is very fast and you can check this in case you wan to set it out: Install EasyEngine On Ubuntu 18.04 With PHP 7.2

As you can see with the demo data you have loading under a second and only 24 requests ( the page has the full demo imported and more then 10 posts in homepage).

Price

The price is not very high and you can get it even with 35$ when is not at any discount.

There is also an option to buy a membership with 9$ a month. In this way you have access to all the themes and plugins.
