What's new in v4.3.x?

We've introduced several new features in our latest release, including:

Tips to Improve Website Performance

  • Opt for a VPS over shared hosting and ensure it's SSD-based for better resources.
  • Upgrade to PHP 7.4 or newer, a requirement for WordPress, and ensure MySQL version is 5.6 or higher (Contact your hosting provider for updates).
  • Use a reliable cache plugin like WP Fastest Cache Plugin and thoroughly test your site after installation and configuration.
  • Enhance user experience with plugins like Flying Pages for faster loading.
  • Reduce image load times with an image compression plugin such as Imagify.
  • Boost performance by leveraging a CDN service to deliver content faster and more efficiently.

RealHomes Specific Cache Configurations

  • Avoid combining JavaScript files for the RealHomes theme when using a cache plugin (or any optimization plugin). This theme isn't typical and certain scripts load only when needed. Additionally, dynamic data is generated before some scripts based on various settings. Combining JavaScript files can lead to errors.
  • RealHomes utilizes the following cookies (if related settings/plugins are enabled). Configure your cache plugin to exclude pages that use these cookies, or request the same from your host if it's like WPEngine (which doesn't permit cache plugins and manages caching at the server level):
