Its lightweight and minimalist design makes it load in mere seconds. According to the Themeisle team, a default WordPress install with a Neve theme is only 28 KB. That’s much smaller than the average WordPress theme size of 300 KB.
What’s more, it has several performance optimization features that make it even faster. For instance, if you go to the ‘Neve > Neve Options > Neve Pro’, then you’ll find the ‘Performance’ section.
Once you enable it, you get several performance optimization options for your website. Such as:
- Remove Emoji Scripts: Boost performance by disabling unnecessary emoji scripts and streamlining your website’s code.
- Remove Embed Scripts: Improve loading times by eliminating extra embed scripts and enhancing the efficiency of your website.
- Host External Fonts Locally: Speed up your site by locally hosting external fonts, minimizing external requests, and optimizing font rendering.
- Lazy Render Off-Screen Elements: Enhance performance by automatically deferring the loading of non-critical elements until they come into view.
As a matter of fact, everybody hates waiting, and is the same when it comes to slow-loading sites. Thus, Neve ensures that your site loads fast. Plus, it puts you on the good side in the eyes of Google as well.
2. Custom Layouts
Another beauty of this theme is its Custom Layouts module, which allows you to create and display custom sections for different parts of your website.
You can use the Custom Layouts module to create custom headers, footers, sidebars, 404 pages, and more. You can also use Elementor or the block editor to design your custom layouts with drag and drop.
