Mobile Compatibility

Before getting a new WordPress theme, you need to check either its harmonious with mobile devices or not. A mobile-friendly theme for your website will help you to reach out to a wide range of visitants every day. We investigate mobile compatibility to help you to pick the best. Today we will test "The Agency" demo of Brooklyn theme.

This demo has a video on its header section that's working completely fine on mobile. The logo and menu buttons are nicely placed. CTA(Call to action) button and all other page elements are centered, and that makes it look like a perfect mobile compatible theme.

Nevertheless, we think the photos of the "Our Work" section could be better looking if they have a bit of padding on both sides. You can add a few pixels of padding by adjusting CSS codes only for the mobile device option. Besides, The placement of other elements is perfect.

We have also run Google's mobile compatibility test of the Brooklyn WordPress theme, and the result is affirmative.

Design Review

The design of the Brooklyn theme is creative and engaging enough. The continually changing headline is appealing. The orange and white color on a black background is so eye-catching, and it has an energetic vibe that an agency needs on their worker—great applause to the designer for choosing proper colors for every demo according to the purpose.

We mentioned earlier that Brooklyn is a retina-ready, fully responsive WordPress theme with a groundbreaking design.

Speed Test Review

The speed test result has a vital role in the theme testing procedure. It helps us to understand how fast a theme can behave on average. We have tested the theme on GTmetrix, and the result we got is 66 out of 100. The result is so far, not bad at all. The theme took 9.5 seconds for complete loading while the ideal loading time is 3-5 seconds.

Also, the total page size is 7.47MB, which shouldn't be more than 3MB. So, we need to make some improvements to increase page speed. There are a lot of un-optimized images on this page. By compressing the photos or readjusting the photo size can extend full page loading speed. Also, there are a lot of Js, that needs minimization to reduce recent loading speed. With even a few more modifications like - leverage browser caching, minifying Js,  minimizing request size, and redirection can bring an impressive boost to your full page loading speed. There are a lot of WordPress caching plugin is available on ThemeForest that can help you to repair these issues.

A few things are missing from the demo we are reviewings. Most of the common keywords aren't appearing on main tags, and no "robots.Txt" file is available on the site.
