The theme is fantastic, easy to customise and affordable as is the price of future updates. John has been very accommodating and helpful. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad you're enjoying it!
Excellent product and fantastic support.
*Edit - We have updated or review to 5 stars following Amrs prompt reply to my support queries and fantastic new update. Highly recommended, thank you!
This theme has an absolutely fantastic layout however it has a significant page loading time difference in comparison with the default themes.
I am looking forward to future releases which will decrease the noticeable loading times.
Critic, Thanks a lot for the review and we'll be working hard to make the theme even better in future versions.
I've done a comparison between blend and Lara, with the *default* widgets loaded and all the AJAX requests completed.
The results were as follows :
53 requests - HomePage Size : 1,825 KB - Loading Time (without cache): 9.01 seconds.
48 requests - HomePage Size : 1,240 KB - Loading Time (without cache): 8.9 seconds.
Without waiting for the Ajax requests to complete, both themes were loaded within 4 seconds.
So, could you please contact me and I'll take a look at your installation, to determine the reason of the noticeable loading times ?
