I added the flashlight theme to an existing site.
Viewing the site with firebug/safari network monitor. The server was providing the first page within a couple of seconds.
After adding the flashlight theme, it took over 3 seconds to deliver the first page. (This is just the html. No images/JS/CSS)
After adding WooCommerce, it can take anything from 9-25 seconds.
This is on a 4GB Xeon dedicated machine. Running PHP within IIS.
Any help is obviously greatly appreciated!
By itself wordpress isn’t particularly quick. Add in a portfolio based theme and woocommerce and it starts to get a little slower. The topic of speed optimization is significant but typically you could look into a caching plugin to start with. The issue with using WooCommerce is the settings for the plugin then have to be set so that all of the product/ecommerce pages don’t get touched by the caching page.
