I have been changing my themes, looking at the other demos on offer to give my site a ‘fresher look’.
However, upon changing, my site has become very slow with a >15 second wait time, compared to a <2 second wait time prior to this.
Do you have any pointers for how I can resolve this?
No physical code has been altered.
In the test result you will see recommendations, please consider them as that will help to optimize the page load time. One of the suggestion is to optimize images. I suggest you to resize the images and then upload the same on the server. Here’s a tutorial on how you can use GTmetrix and the suggestions.
Thanks, I have adjusted these and now load times are much better.
Can you assist with a few other queries?
Firstly, my website doesn’t seem to be able to recognise that I am logged into my account, so I have had to set static pages for login, logout etc. Is there a way I can set the login page so that when Im logged in, it says Log Out?
I am using Paid Member Subscription plugin, to control membership on my site.
Please be advised that Cornerstone is a page builder bundled in the theme. Regretfully there aren’t any functionality that you can convert pages created in Cornerstone to support other editor like Visual Composer. You can create your page and post using Cornerstone. You can use Cornerstone as a stand alone plugin with another theme. You just can’t updated it because it will require you to validate it. You cannot use X theme licenses to validate Cornerstone. You will need a separate Cornerstone license if you wish to use it with another theme. You can check out CodeCanyon (https://codecanyon.net/item/cornerstone-the-wordpress-page-builder/15518868)
Meanwhile, what you are looking for cannot be achieve with other themes as well. What you need is a 3rd party plugin.
