Flatsome theme

Decompressed, the theme has a 13.2 megabytes cumulative file sizes. Would that indicate a slow theme? We can only give comparisons.

Divi the slowest theme we’ve encountered weighs 90 megabytes. A fast theme is Astra. It weighs about 20 megabytes. Twenty Seventeen default theme by WordPress.org weighs 1.3 megabytes and that includes a 400K image. That should give you some comparative ideas.

Your Flatsome theme should not be a speed problem. There are exceptions. But we suspect the theme is robust and fast. It isn’t necessary to change your theme for speed.
