We have tested Wally’s default demo on different page speed tests, and the content is loaded with a high page speed.
For those who want to build an online store or advertise their websites, the Wally template isn’t an inspired choice since the theme is not compatible with WooCommerce or any ad systems.
Though, it provides explicit screenshots of the backend, the theme’s documentation is less detailed than expected and doesn’t provide a search button.
Unfortunately, if you want to outline your content with a unique typography, you cannot upload your custom fonts or any Typekit fonts.
