All elements of the theme are set up perfectly on any device and no part of a page component is cut off the screen or overflows over another element. All the pages had thin padding on both sides which made the theme look very nice on mobile devices.

Speed Test Review

When you get to a website that takes a lot of time to load, how does that make you feel? People usually leave that website out of anger or frustration. Smartphone users are most likely to wait up to 3/4 seconds for a website to load. Then they move to another site. Google knows very well that if fast-loading websites are not included in the top list in search results, then there will be no value in Google's ranking chain. Therefore, it is recommended to have less loading speed for all the websites.

We are very impressed with the results of Cloux's speed test. We checked the speed of Cloux's demo website on the Pingdom website, and the theme completed full page loading in about 1 minute 81 seconds. Due to the lighter page size, which is 2.8 MB, we have this marvelous score. However, the overall rating is 79, which means the theme still needs improvements. If we compress page components such as style sheets, Java scripts with the help of Gzip, then it is possible to reduce the loading speed of the page further. Wordpress users are privileged to have a massive plugin store, and you can find different Cache plugins that can help you with these issues.
