Important Note

It is highly recommended to use the child theme so that you can easily update parent theme whenever a new update becomes available. A pre-built ready to use child theme is included in the main theme pack that you have downloaded from ThemeForest.

Please note some features (which you can find in Classic Design) might not be available for Modern Design of Real Homes Theme. We are working on adding every possible feature in Modern Design but some of them are simply not possible to add due to design limitations.

Few Performance Improvement Tips

Basic Recommendations

  • Use PHP 7.0 or higher as it is faster than previous versions and a base requirement of WordPress. ( You can communicate with your hosting provider to get it updated. )
  • Make sure your hosting is based on SSD drives.
  • It is recommended that you should use a VPS instead of shared hosting as it gives you better resources to work on.
  • Use a good cache plugin and test your site properly after installing and configuring it.

Real Homes Specific

  • Do not unify (combine) JavaScript files for Real Homes theme while using a cache plugin ( or any optimisation plugin ) as it is not an average blog theme and certain scripts are only loaded when required. Also, dynamic data is generated before few scripts based on various settings. So, Combining JavaScript files can create errors.
  • Real Homes uses following cookies (if related settings are enabled). So, You can configure your cache plugin to not cache pages that uses these cookies OR you can request the same from your host if your host is like WPEngine ( who do not allow cache plugin and handles the cache on server level ).
