In our era, time has become a precious commodity. We value a product by the benefits it offers, but we also judge it by the speed delivered by its output. We have tested The Voux theme’s default demo on different page speed tests, and it loads the content with a slow page speed.
The Voux is still under development, so loading content is problematic, and the website frequently encounters errors. For example, the first attempts to import a predefined demo failed. The second demo did load, with a slow speed though. Also, the front-end editor often faces failures so it turns the customization into a slow and hard process.
It’s a beautiful thema but the speed is so bad, so slow.
