Mobile Compatibility

My Religion is a mobile-friendly WordPress theme. This is what emerged from the test that we carried out on the Mobile-Friendly Test site. Thanks to this WP theme, you will be able to create a website accessible on both mobile and fixed devices.

It is an imperative criterion for the success of a site, especially when you know that most people prefer to use their smartphone or tablet whether for work or entertainment.

In fact, you have a responsive layout that will respond to your screen width and make content appearance be perfect on all devices, from large desktop screens to mobile phones and tablets. The images will soon be centered and adjusted as necessary.

In addition, My Religion is Retina ready, which implies a high-quality display whatever the screen.

Design Review

My Religion offers 2 pre-built home pages with designs that are quite similar overall. We have here a very modern design, with a sober side but pretty to look at. Through the choice of colors, the arrangement of sections, and images, we find ourselves well in the targeted niche.

Unlimited color possibilities for your main navigation and many other website elements lets you adapt your website appearance to your company style.

The images are very well put forward in order to bring a truly human dimension to the web page.

With My Religion, you have a Custom Admin panel that offers you many features, including a wide variety of options and parameters for maximum customization flexibility. You can also take advantage of 99+ Custom Shortcodes as fantastic building blocks for your pages. Very diverse and easy to manage, you will love them!

Speed Test Review

Now let's take a look at the loading speed of our WordPress theme. A web page should take an average of 3 seconds at most, to not negatively affect the user experience. Thanks to GTmetrix, you can see that My Religion can take up to 6 seconds to fully charge.

What you should know is that 6 seconds of loading is not necessarily bad, if the WP theme is well optimized. However, when we look at the grade of "D" assigned, we understand this it is not right at all.

According to our analysis, the main cause of this poor performance is the lack of caching system. This is probably due to the fact that this is only a demo here. In our opinion, it would require leverage browser caching.

Indeed, Page load times can be significantly improved by making browsers to save and reuse the files included in your website. It reduces page load times for repeat visitors. This is particularly effective on websites where users regularly re-visit the same areas of the website.

SEO Review

Beyond speed, SEO is essential for the survival of your website. Badly referenced, a site will never be well highlighted on search engines and will, therefore, lack visibility.

We can see on our test that the WordPress theme My Religion has a fairly average SEO score (55/100). It is very limited and it assumes that there are no errors in the SEO configurations to review.

This test was performed on a demo and not on a full-fledged website. Generally, the author does not make too much effort regarding the content when it is only a demo. This is why we find a large number of fairly basic errors that should be corrected.

Fortunately, you have the option of doing this easily with WordPress SEO plugins. Take a look for example at Yoast SEO, one of the best WordPress plugins in the field.

Customer Support Review

This WordPress theme is not very recent (since 2016). We, therefore, have a fairly experienced team in supporting users. This is what emerges when you consult the comments section to assess the level of user monitoring.

Management is prompt and thorough. It can be seen that the team behind My Religion really cares about the complete satisfaction of its users. This did not fail to be noticed by several of them who were full of praise for the care they received.

In addition, updates from My Religion are constantly provided so that the WP theme is cutting edge and meets customer expectations.

Supported Plugins

Thanks to the integration of WooCommerce, My Religion allows you to trade from your site in order to raise funds for your religious projects and the like.

Apart from WooCommerce, My Religion supports several high-quality WordPress plugins like WPLM, Events Calendar, etc.

Summarize

To conclude, here we have a perfect WordPress theme for your Church site. The design is beautiful, adapted, and above all responsive. My Religion offers great features such as Sermons, Donations, and the sale of fundraising products. Finally, customer support is clearly above standards due to the quality of service. What better could you ask for?
